I like my intelligence, my good memory, and my ability to be successful at my job. When it all comes down to it, that, logic, ability to understand some things many consider very complicated, learning based on logic/association/patterns, and a HUGE bank of knowledge about interests present and past...

It didn't help me but I was only on the diet for a few months and its said it can take up to 6 months to get the levels down in your system but there hasn't really been much research in it. Since even if it does work the results aren't huge it would be hard to verify I think and can more than likel...

The 1:150 is apparently a FABRICATION! Some say that is 1:150 males(At a 4:1 male to female ratio, that would be 1:375! At a 2:1 male/female ratio, it would be 1:225!), and others say 1:150 PDD(which includes AS and NOS)! Either way, it is misleading at best.

Does anyone else find covered breasts more of a turn-on than naked breasts? I hate to say it, but it depends. If they are firm and not TOO large, naked is FINE! 8-) In fact, I often couldn't see why ANYONE would want them covered, or why women would be embarassed. Other times, I'm actually GLAD the...

I would say at its core aspies are less trusting. That seems to be supported by the oxytocin dysfunctional theory of autism. Gullibility seems to be related to ones knowledge, intelligence and trust levels. So again I say many aspies are not very gullible. I wish I could remember a particular incid...

WOW! As for the doctor, why do SO many doctors think they know everything when their very existence is because you CAN'T! Eye doctors are taught FROM DAY ONE that each eye is DIFFERENT and COMPLEX, and they should TEST EACH SEPERATELY! Why didn't that doctor simply give you a color test accordingly?...

I've noticed again that many responses on a recent thread took the information posted at face value. Is this a generalized trait of the disorder? Any literature to support this? Sadly, Yeah. That is ANOTHER AS symptom I have. I even referred to that a few times. I HAVE become CYNICAL because of it....

I'm self taught. HECK, I could teach COLLEGES a lot! Most teachers see it only as a job, and do poorly at it. In the US, they have a saying:

Those that can, DO! Those that CAN'T TEACH! And there is MY addition.....And they CAN'T TEACH!

there is interesting old footage of him pacing alot, there is footage from the Munich olympic games where he is pacing severely. It was before his parkinson's set in, it looks pretty autistic.

I figured I was shy and smart. This actually explained, in some ways, the interests, different thinking strategy, strengths, weaknesses, lack of friends/social skills, mental development, etc.... Lack of change was just due to my Of course, it didn't explain WHY I was as I was, or the sensory proble...

I would be so glad if i would just get up one day and i could look into peoples' eyes and know what's behind that not-meaning-anything-face. I don't believe NTs can do that either; they just think they can. No one can tell what people are thinking simply by looking at them. HECK, have you ever real...

When I say autism I mean higher on the spectrum. I am in my own world, I zone out what is going on around me I am totally unaware what is going on around me. My boyfriend told me aspies are more aware what is going on around them and they are not totally in their own world. Actually, Many auties/as...

Sadly, I never had the ability to think about it, until recently. NOW, I weigh that stuff all the time. I am VERY sure that one of my collegues has AS and another HFA. I think one old friend ALSO has AS. ALL were productive and at first glance appeared normal, although the two AS people DID have a L...

Dunno know about all aspies. I know this aspie cannot do that. Fact is, I have a tough time taking credit for my accomplishments. I'm the same way. I tend to downplay it when someone compliments me on something I've done. SAME HERE! HECK, if someone takes credit for my accomplishments, I consider i...
