Carl was an example of one kid with AS, and personally, I thought it was pretty similar to me at that age. I didn't think it was over pronounced at all. I used to get annoyed at characters like Abed from Community who just so naturally converses with people but is a little quirky, because that's not...

If that was addressed to me, I just made that list to poke fun at the over-diagnoses that occurred in both that thread and this one. If you look at my list knowing that, it makes a lot more sense. The only ones I think have more than a couple of traits are Bob Dylan, Fiona Apple, and Taylor Swift, b...

When I am going out in public I need to create a character for myself in order to interact. I think "for this store trip I will be friendly and approachable" or "I will be more confident seeming and smiley" or any number of things. If I do not think about this first, and get into my "acting mode" I...

Cyndi Lauper. I'm watching the US Apprentice Season 9 at the moment and she's just awesome, but the other's are having problems dealing with her monologuing and off the wall questions. They like her, but find she doens't communicate the same way they do. She's coming over as a really interesting an...

This seems bad, but I hope it's Max's suicide. I feel like that could be beautifully done, and could send an important message.

For as long as I can remember, even from ages 4 to 6, I remember just naturally feeling out of place, like I wasn't worth as much as other people. I find it fascinating how other people are just naturally well liked, or naturally confident, and even as young as I can remember, I had always assumed I...

Looking back, I feel like my parents didn't really understand the magnitude of what my condition was. They tried a little bit, but I feel like they never really tried to teach me social norms or skills from a cognitive perspective, and when it came to executive functioning related issues, they alway...

In a way I'm actually kind of glad I care about other people and what they think, because if I didn't then I would be a horrible shell of a human being. It's a painful thing to live with and put up with, and I often wish I could shed it, but I know it would be wrong to. It depends on what you mean ...

Alcohol certainly helps my anxiety a lot, as do cigarettes, but marijuana makes it even worse, and emphasizes them beyond oblivion. Maybe I just take too much or something.

For me it means a difficulty to understand social norms, to develop and maintain relationships with people, and to veer away from my restrictive behaviors. Along with those major categories come a whole mess of subcategories.
