My third grade class was tested. I was put into the highly to exceptionally gifted category based upon my exam scores. My reading ability was off the charts (high school graduate level), science/math advanced (high school level) and reasoning was quite developed for my age. I was tutoring high scho...

I don't even like the term "gifted people". I think we all have a gift. Sure, some will not agree with me but I have made up my mind! Also, why can't we say that the guy drivig the Fedex truck (or whatever it is called) is gifted? People just call themselves gifted in order to brag! Or are...

1. How did you find your area of expertise? Was this something that was very obvious? Around age 26, I heard about an opportunity that combined my general interests and talents. 2 how did ASD help make you really good at your area of expertise? I had always worked from basic principles using logic,...

1. How did you find your area of expertise? Was this something that was very obvious? I think I just stumbled on it. I wasn't looking for it. I wanted a result, and I suppose some of my ASD traits made it hard for me to rest till I got it. 2 how did ASD help make you really good at your area of exp...

You are an INTROVERT . You gain your strength and energy when you are alone. It lets you recharge your internal batteries. About half of the people in the world are INTROVERTS. The other half of the people are EXTROVERTS . Extroverts recharge their internal batteries when they are in a group of peo...

I often ask how people have found their expertise, ie what they are really good at, and how I can find mine. It would be really lovely if I could find my area of expertise. I should add that this term may have different definitions as ussually happen with many terms. Please tell me how you use "...

I think if it there were a specific type of dancing, it would indeed be specified. Square-dancing, vs. line dancing, vs. tango. The more general and non-specific and BROAD, the more generic. Dancing in this case means an area will be designated for people to stand and move their bodies to music, no...

Yesterday morning, I woke up very badly depressed, I felt soooo overwhelmed, toooo much pressure of what I have to do, I felt empty, I had no energy, I could not get out of bed, I felt like a very dark cloud over my head. I got up to go to the bathroom, then I went back to bed. Why Aspergers can do...

Maybe. But they dont because most folks understands that it is what I said above without it being specified. Dancing to current top 40, or to some mix of current hits and oldies. And freestyle or twisting is what folks do that kinda music mix. Hosts will specify only if its something OTHER than the...

"There will be dancing" means "we have a space cleared out in which we expect folks to dance in" as opposed to "its gonna be all tables because its just a sitdown dinner party". They might even have a deejay, though nowadays it probably just somebody's ipod hooked up t...

I just read an invitation to a Xmas dinner. It is something that will ooccur in Advent but that's what it is called. I read that there will be dancing. My first reaction was how broad that term dance is. It is a hypernym. I was wondering why they refused to tell us what kind of dancing they are talk...

I’m turning 50 next March, and my wife asked me what I’d like to do. She suggested throwing a party, planning a wine-tasting weekend, or doing the new Star Wars hotel. That last one is very expensive, and before realizing I was autistic, I would vote for the party option. But social gatherings have...
