 Post subject: Is it really good advise

I really do not know that this is good advise, at least not for Denmark and Northern Europe for all I know, but maybe it is for the US? Advising against graduation date, age, and references seems perculiar. There are different ways of going around it, but maybe your resume will be ignored, if it is ...

You may consider the usual thing for Aspie guys, netdating. You may also, as I have been advised, and done successfully engage yourself (if able) in societies, clubs and volunteering related to your special interests, here people (girls) have a better chance of getting to know you over time. With re...

Best of luck with your research project. I hope the Aspie community will benefit from it in the long run. I cannot help you personally (not diagnosed yet, not in a relationship with an Aspie (anymore) and from DK). However I can guess why you can only focus on UK residents, having done a bit of stat...

All I have learned on AS for the past two weeks indicates no good reason to get a diagnosis. The two main benefits could have been avoiding national service, which I hated partially, but did alright and maybe getting additional student grants/SU/national scholarship, but I only have my thesis left. ...

A matter of perception. Exactly. And as such, subjective, as are many things in life. Is it splitting hairs? Sure :D Can't argue with that. Since splitting hairs is neither necessary, nor important to me... I'll leave it at that. 8) I may add a little, ignore it if you like. Walking with regards to...

Around here, Copenhagen, Denmark, Europe, it is the way to get around. It is cheapest, fastest, almost the most save way. It is climate friendly, social and trendy. I did not ride a bike before age 12, but ride a bike all year now. In everything but blizzards and storms. Biking as a means of short d...

Thank you. I quite likely will contact you, but I do not feel like disclosing as much personal information as you just did, for internet privacy reasons. That we can get back to. For now I have started this post: http://www.wrongplanet.net/postt178298.html feel free to join!

I hear a lot about people who thought they were autistic, then eventually went through the diagnostic process and their suspicions were confirmed. But surely not everybody that thinks they're on the spectrum actually is. Has anybody gone for an assessment and found out they weren't actually autisti...

I love direct honesty. No sarcasm intended :)

And: I know.

On the other hand, I don't see what it will give me if I had the "paper on it". Come tio think of it - anyone else knows?


I raised a debate on just that, on the job/career forum. Feel free to join it, guys!

I think about obligations to disclose information about yourself for management in high positions. Maybe I am just speculating. If no one else around here knows of it, it is probably not much of an issue. No reason to worry about it then. I would still appreciate if you guys could highlight some of ...

That is a difficult question... it depends a lot on local laws. I had a diagnosis when I was a child. In The Netherlands these diagnoses have to renewed every five years, so at one point my diagnoses ran out. At that point I had to make a similar decision. I put the following questions out and trie...

For all I know, I should be protected by the law, the human rights and various Corporate Social Responsibility standards simultaniously. Hacking however does occur, and a diagnosis will be recorded by state healthcare. I.e. I increase the risk of someone getting that information, if I get a diagnosi...

I only just realised that I am quite likely to be Aspie, though I may be one of the 20% who do not have too many symptoms when growing up. I know that being aware that I am quite likely Aspie will help me getting to know myself better, and therefore also improve my social skills. The offers for Aspi...
