Corporate Sales Rep.? Management Consultant? Are either of you actually autistic?! Believe it or not, those are jobs that autistic people can do well. Corporate Sales is normally a B2B job, and it's most important to have detailed product knowledge and a thorough understanding of your client's need...

I think there is no explicite needs to totally focus on technical jobs/knowledgs. Yeah - the 'middle ground' between, say, marketing and computing is likely at least to be manageable, and dealing with one's weaknesses has to have some place. {Mind you, I found out the hard way that it an "aspie" ca...

Hi I'm wondering about the employment experiences of 'aspies' who lack much enthusiasm forany areas of the 'geek' world, in spite of its steady infiltration of the world of paid work since the 90s. How have others dealt with this dilemma? By managing to succeed in a less-technical field like teachin...

emotions- all emotions, are unhealthy, that they cause our suffering. Emotions are selfish. I'm an 'aspie' Buddhist, and my understanding of emotions from a Buddhist perspective is that they are something of a blunt instrument (much like your understanding of this point imho :P ), but NOT unhealthy...

Yes, I agree ... Read this book: http://youmaybeinsane.webstarts.com/index.html?r=20130228130918 Not with me I take it :lol: I see the whole 'ND' thing is much the same as it was a few years back, but there's less of it, and there's (typically) been a fair few replies from different members along t...

no effort has been made to explain what our behavior really is, anyone can see it is different from NTs, yes, but they should look deeper. I agree - I've barely observed anyone seriously trying to work out WHAT the differences between autistics and NTs actually are. Yes, they assume everyone alread...

aspies of any gender do not have that NT sexual behavior from what I've seen which is part of what causes NTs to run. Who knows what it would be like in a world with 50/50 NTs and aspies? I'd reword this as "aspies of any gender cannot find that NT sexual behaviour. We might stumble across it - giv...

Our traits are a spectrum, with more or less random configurations between people. That's why we no longer can qualify as species or subspecies. However, the traits themselves, when viewed as a collection of traits, could very well qualify as another species (just look at all the species-typical di...

Something off-the-wall to throw into the ring - Autistics aren't so much substantially different (to others) as unhinged from the ordinary human reactions which ground others' being. Whereas NTs feel 'y' in response to 'x' -and feel that that feeling as a reflection of their essential being- autisti...

An existential nihilist is someone who perceives that life has no intrinsic meaning or value. This is commonplace, thought of as a 'truism' in 'right-thinking' circles. So to ward off all things 'existential', witness: Usually, people say things like: "Life is what you make it." "Life may be meanin...

they do not instinctively know and so have to think about it first. Either way the cogs in the brain have to turn - I hope there aren't specialists in the field out their with unexamined unconscious assumptions that some kind of 'soul power' is responsible for the specific contents of empathy! It's...
