How far into the spectrum do you believe yourself to be? I have level 1 autism. My doctor said I would've been diagnosed with Aspergers if the label was still in use where I live. I'm on the lower end of high-functioning, though. Maybe that's just the result of not receiving therapy as a kid, but m...

I have been following Trump and watching his speeches much more closely than most people. I watched his every speech during the campaign, and try to watch most now. I see no indication that he is the hateful racist people are accusing him to be. I think you have to look at his announcement speech i...

I am officially diagnosed with Asperger's. That's "to what degree" I am autistic. I believe this is one of those kinds of posts that people expect to find more than a brief line, though. The minutia goes as follows. I have a job, live by myself and lead a totally autonomous, independant l...

Everybody seems to be obsessed about Donald Trump's character traits more than they care about what he's actually got done. All over the place I see people ranting and raving about his bone spur diagnoses, or Stormy Daniels, or the false Russia conspiracy, or how he's an arrogant as*hole. Well, I'll...

I've faced my own struggles, but I am aware of how lucky I've been. All in all I'd say I'm not that autistic (though I don't think that's the proper way to say so). Unlike a lot of aspies, or NTs for that matter- I actually began speaking quite early, when I was less than a year old. I had a modera...

As said countless times before, autism is a very wide spectrum and the different symptoms effect people to varying degrees. So my question to you all is, how far into the autism spectrum do you believe yourself to be? What unique challenges (and perks) has being on the autism spectrum given you, and...

Yes but the ability to make a plan and stick to it is just as important.

Ladies and gentleman, I present to you a musical genre that is simultaneously unlike anything you have ever seen and yet all the same so, so familiar. We've all seen the 80s cliches- the neon lights, wacky hairstyles, bright colors, lazerbeams, cyborgs, synths, palm trees and a glimmering sunset in ...

I have noticed a pervasive trend in my temperament that most definitely is a result of having Aspergers. This trend is my ABSOLUTE REFUSAL to be flexible with plans that I have formed in my head without a fight. Somebody tells me that they WILL do something. Be at a place at a certain time, do a cer...

If aspies are so superior, why aren't they ruling the world?


Because we are in the minority.

One thing I might add - NT's who really push themselves to focus on what matters or think from first principles get to be a lot like us as well and need to find increasingly well selected groups of friends, otherwise they run into the 'bucket of crabs' problem where insecure people try to drag them...

I see no problem with myself, but then again I've learned to embrace my autism rather than worry about it. It's part of me, it's who I am. And by all accounts, from any research I've done- it's a large part of why I'm so proficient at the things I am proficient at. For background, I am an electrical...
