I did! My school said I wasn't social enough. I bet if it happened 12 years later I would have been diagnosed AS.

On the other hand, Steve K, you really need to move beyond your ideological view of social welfare. You cannot view the benefits received by many p[eople who actually need them to live or to succeed in the light of a few people you know who are abusing the system. You need to make a better circle o...

I apologize if I seem overly harsh, but the democrats came up with "the new deal". The idea was good, but they didn't collect enough. MAYBE that was part of their plan, because people retired for decades seeing it as a BARGAIN, and they will vote for decades more and spread propaganda. Then they rai...

I've noticed in Malcolm_Scipio's posts that he seems to believe that every genius ever, from Beethoven to Michelangelo, was autistic. There is no evidence for most of these "cases". He also seems to think that AS people are inherently more prone to genius than us NTs, and that all NTs are flimsy, e...

Bizmack, You are operating on false assumptions!! !! They are acting stupid NOT because of you, but because they ARE stupid. People all over are getting dumber. I don't know, maybe someone is doing lobotomies or something. Anyway, it seems NO manager does a good job with average people. It doesn't m...

If you don't know, then you haven't got to that point in your life and I hope you never do.


There is a difference between being grateful and relieved, and CELEBRATION!

Congratulations. I want one. Aren't you like 14 or 15? Why don't you want to try to succeed first? It is AMAZING how so many react so differently! There are ones like me that do REAL well at work, start of looking GREAT, and the jerk culture ends up breaking them. My two jobs in my chosen area have...

It isn't REALLY the opposite problem at all. I used to be rude, etc... NOW, I appear to be less so because I keep my mouth shut more. So the new problem is simply a different way t react to the same probem.

Recent research reveals fact that most researchers cannot think logically. hehe, be careful, there are many researchers here at WP :) Honestly, I'd agree with nutbag, exchanging the word "many" for "most". I made a habit of reading scholarly journal articles, and so often under all that smug schola...

If you go to a foreign country acting TOO feminine/social, you better know the customs, etc.... Otherwise, it is dangerous. YOU may actually be safer. This DOES te...

I don't know when it comes to remembering things it's good but socially it is a curse Yes, my dentist thought it was the strangest thing when I talked to him about certain parts of his life.

In a new study scientists have revealed that people with autism do not daydream. The resting period usually gives time for areas of the brain to process emotional and reflective thoughts. The University of California research, in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, compared brain scans...

IRONIC that a person with AS would have trouble with VOCABULARY. lol, I have a rather well vocabulary in all the languages that I know (6000+ in English, 3000+ in Persian, 2000+ in French and about 1000 in Japanese), but except in Persian and English, my receptive vocabulary is REALLY higher than m...
