It's a measurement of intelligence.

As much as this seems like some reasonably good advise, I can't say this qualifies as an "emergency", much less an "EMERGENCY ! ! EMERGENCY!! ! READ NOW!!" kind of thing. Lol.

No. How could you be so cruel? Everyone knows hairs are actually long, skinny worms. The poor worm just wanted its freedom. How dare you want to keep it in captivity on your head? Why can't we live on the clouds? Because Sky-President Trump outlawed immigration. Who's the cat that won't cop out, wh...

So you're coming here criticizing someone's behaviour, calling him weird and asking if we think he has Asperger. Don't you think that's rude? not really....it's just an innocent question. I'll accept this was probably intended innocently. But what you have essentially and probably inadvertently don...

What you're describing isn't so much to do with theory of mind. Part of it (certainly in the latter example) is more a case of gullibility or simply taking someone at their word and part of it (in the case of the former) is that you appear to have more integrity than your coworkers, meaning that you...

like is it common? for example my sister said up ur ass and i said how are you gonna get up there? i dont even think i realized i did it. Taking things literally is a sign of rigid thinking, which is one of the key elements of autism. This being said, most people I know with ASD, despite having pro...

Like jobs, money, housing, spouses, relationships, kids, traveling, etc. I find this question to be fairly redundant. Firstly, none of these things come easily to anyone, they all are achieved by putting in effort, so it's not really fair to say "normal people GET more things", they're no...

Writing lists can be a clumsy process when trying to explain something like this. Personally I think you'd be better off using something such as the DSM or NICE guidelines to keep it concise and to the point. Look at the criteria for diagnosis and write a few statements about how each of the parts a...

I have had my eye on a few women that I had an interest in. I had been contemplating who I felt most interested in, and she was one of them. The billion dollar question now is, how do I ask her out? I only have ever gone out with one other person, but I have known her for a few years and they were ...

Just to direct this back to the original question. Here's a few ideas which seem to work for people; - Blow her a kiss - Pull a funny face - Wave at her The idea is to acknowledge that you are aware that she is staring at you, people typically don't like it when they are caught staring and such thin...

The only person who can really answer that question is you. How would a diagnosis benefit you? I was only diagnosed recently at age 30. I don't need any assistance or help or government support or any kind. I'm married, I earn a decent living and I am happy for the most part. For me, getting a diagn...

I used to work with a girl who had a tendency to snoop through other peoples profiles and like pictures from several years ago, it was very odd. The point being, some people do look through other peoples profiles for various reasons. However, from thing else you have said, it does sound like she cou...

I doubt Depression or antidepressants would cause any significant contribution to something such as Erotomania, however, Mania as experienced in the case of Bipolar Disorder perhaps could manifest in Erotomanic delusions. As far as Aspergers goes, it is possible that misunderstandings regarding vari...

Don't be too hard on yourself. With regards to your sister, the key word there is "sneaking", she was probably trying very hard to make sure you didn't notice. As for the chocolate chips, putting them in the fridge sounds like a pretty reasonable thing to do, it's not like you tried puttin...
