So, getting to I think the first point I'd offer - our first enemy is what society's told us. The notion that, having a social disability, that we're inferior. Its not to say that we can't be grating or have certain patterns of behavior where we can in fact bring bad reactions upon ourselves, its j...

Stinkypuppy - I just feel I'm defective. I feel I need force myself into a relationship or I'll become a statistic. I think this forum galvanized the fact that aspie men are NOT capable of either love or relationships(and no, I don't mean relationships in a relational database such as Oracle or MyS...

The harder you try the worse you will perform. I know you don't want to hear it, but you are unlikely to find someone until you stop actively looking for her. This worked for me. I've heard that before, but it's so hard to stop my search. And it sounds like a paradox as well. The basis for this is ...

Okay, so if you did not have complete coverage of your educational expenses covered by grant money, would you then consider student loans or would you have considered it too expensive if a great enough percentage of your college education was relegated to be financed via lending agencies? Definitel...

People I have access to communicate with regarding their knowledge and experiences: My stepdad, who has a BA in chemistry and physics. My wife, who has an AA in Early Childhood Education. Nehemiah J., who has a PhD in geology. Sheila K., who has a BA in anthropology. Jonathan S., who has a PhD in p...

Who says I'm limited to my own experiences and knowledge? Just by not being enrolled in college means I can't converse with professors, researchers, other students? Do you realize how patently absurd that is? You seem to think, or express rather, that without a formal education that one cannot comm...

here's me: recent PhD, Ivy League school, unemployed. :lol: Nonetheless I have no regrets getting that higher degree. Do you owe money back or have you been paid in full through grants and scholarships? If you owe money back, would you mind stating the quantity owed? Tuition and stipend both paid f...

Oops, I forgot to mention another significant disadvantage to utilizing no social learning: you won't be able to learn from other people's experiences and knowledge. When you're limited to drawing from only your own experiences, the learning process is significantly slower, because you have to wait ...

A degree makes your life better much the same way paper money does. It is a symbol of work invested and goals achieved. And if it was honest work and worthwhile gols, that feels good [I have one degree I know is shabby, but the others are real in that sense] It certifies that someone - for money th...

If one is decidedly antisocial why then would a social aspect be preferable? Because social learning isn't just about face-to-face communication. It's also about communicating by writing and reading, and teaching while being taught at the same time. You claim that to at least some extent people lea...

I like pre-studying. Then, you kind of go to the class as a leader and a person in the background willing to help the teacher succeed (and the fact that I'm a guy in my 40s and that I taught high school for one year and have an idea what the teacher is going through has something to do with it!) Bu...

Brianruns10 : I'd take out all the stuff about your "rich and eventful life" in your self-summary. It's already clear that you're passionate about filmmaking, and those details can be mentioned if anybody asks about your experiences as a filmmaker. It's good to have enough information about yoursel...

I've taken a few classes now that didn't have a textbook. They covered newly emerging fields where the subject matter is not yet that clearly defined and there aren't standard textbooks that provide an adequate and up-to-date coverage. The classes instead consisted of conversations with researchers...

Hi GrantP1970, I'll refrain from passing any judgment on whether your estranged wife has AS. My philosophy on that is that one shouldn't diagnose or debunk AS in an individual based on something read on the Internet, that it's considerably more accurate when one meets the individual face to face. At...

I am doing my dissertation and am on one hand feeling really positive about it - I have been reading lots of stuff on the subject, it's something I'm really interested in and it's a bit of an obsession for me of late. My friend is an absolute expert on the subject I have chosen - it's something he'...
