It's one of those things I've never had in my life, since very early age - ambition. Absolute zero. I'm happy not owning much and I don't see the point of dedicating my free time to working towards some material stuff. I can see it as a giant character flaw, but I can't even talk myself into wantin...

So, I am going to do the unthinkable, I am changing employment. Still a customer service role, but a more technical one. Also, I was referred to it by a former coworker who knows how weird I am, so I hope the new place is autism- and weirdness-friendly. My question is what to do to succeed in a new ...

I had to adblock your stylesheets in order not to be completely unable to use the site at all. I thought it would have been fixed by now but is not. All the gradients and shadows make me physically ill.

I am working in a callcenter position and love that customers don't see my stimming or me cuddling my plushies.

I ask people to turn it off and on again. More than 5 years in the role, and I can imagine retiring in it.

In addition, do the people who post the jobs expect the applicants to emulate an NT?

Be careful though, some companies are against intra-office relationships.

People constantly ask me where I am from... now that I live in Ireland, they are occasionally right, but the guesses for Germans are all oer the map: English, French, Russian, various areas of Germany, "Nordic"...

I sometimes have moments where I have to first say what I want to say in a different language before expressing them in my native one. It is as my main language (German) shuts down and I need to kickstart it with Esperanto or English, which both are not my native languages.

"Must communicate effectively, both orally and in writing." I can see Aspies thrive with this one. From my experience, aspies formulate less ambiguously and say what they mean in a clearer way than many NTs. Of course, this is not true for everyone, but some aspies are quite eloquent, albeit occasio...

I know what you mean. Sometimes, I get that vague feeling in the absence of empirical evidence. My solution: Doing my job to the best of my ability. That will garner you respect. Yep, quite effective. A coworker told me he first disliked me and deemed me incompetent until I proved him otherwise.
