Change it in your browser's option/preference.

Also, if someone else didn't change your search engine, it may have been changed by a program you installed or some malware.

How true is this?

Spoiler for My score is 35:


So does it mean I am mentally handicapped? What does this test for anyway?

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Looking at the questions I'd say you're mentally handicapped if you actually believe this test is even worth your time.

I'm not sure what that test is supposed to mean, my score is 13.

Besides, what does it mean if you're below the control group? Negative Autism?

You COULD tell that to MBTI practitioners. I almost got into trouble with a speaker on MBTI in my school earlier this year by saying the same thing about the Myer-Briggs Assessment (until another professor alongside the speaker said that INTJ/P tend to be very frank about their opinions, but whatever).

Anyway, looking back the statistics, it takes into account only the answers which you answer at the extreme ends (strong agree/disagree), so actually you might be correct.

Well my score was 17 so I guess I'm alright =P

But that was just bullshit since it didn't have a "Don't know" option. How the hell am I supposed to remember if I was good at pretending games when I was a kid?

I'm also INTP (at least I was two years ago).

14 But I don't know what to think about this test. I miss the "Who Cares" or "WTF" option.

Well concerning that. It's normal for tests to not have a "skip/neutral" option.

It's just the nature of the questions is so... meh. Looks like something some random student cooked up.

Is there a fan-translation for the book Shin Ai by Mizuki Nana?

I tried using my browser's options, but Yahoo is still set as my search engine, is there anything I can install that would set it to Google?

Just uninstall the mallware that keeps setting your search engine to yahoo.

May potentially be some toolbar... if you're lucky.

It would help to know which browser you're using .

Google Chrome, it started getting like this when I updated Java, though it's probably a coincidence.

More and more you have to pay attention when installing or updating software. If you simply click the "accept" option throughout the installation process, you're likely to be installing other things like anti-virus trials, browser toolbars, and the like as well. Mindlessly clicking through installation dialogues is not a reasonable strategy if you hope to retain control over your computer.

(All this applies to Windows, of course. I've never had anything installed on my Linux computers that I didn't intend. Of course, since none of the software I use is traded commercially, there's little incentive to slip things in through the back door to make money. I also only install Linux software from known repositories. I suspect that if I installed something like Adobe Reader directly from Adobe I might find a browser toolbar bundled with it.)

Software (auto-)updating itself is becoming standard practice. Release schedules are also moving away from the idiotic "fancy release" (ie. oh look new interface) and more towards practically, hence the adoption of fixed date updates not just for commercial software but software projects in general.
