Lisp. Lisp thinks like I do. But it is hard to find a job doing lisp. I find OO languages to be very different than the way I think. I like a REPL and a terse language. I like Oracle SQL and awk. For some reason on code interviews C lang is the easiest for me to recall without looking things up. Eve...

Some people find friends/connections via a group related to a special interest. Example: you have a special interest in Lego - find a local AFOL (Adult Fans Of Lego) group - or Lego online community. ADHD means hyperactive focus. Autism special interests are often a hyperfocus. I need variety. Physi...

What if: I am just like everyone else. But I am also profoundly different. I often think of the deaf community or the blind community. On one hand they want to be treated like everyone else but there is no denying the real disability. I am ok being “different” or “unique” sometimes - at others I jus...

The distance from New York to Boston is exactly the same as the distance from Boston to New York.

As hard as it is for me to understand or “think like” an NT (neurotypical) person, it is really that hard for an NT person to understand or “think like” me.

● - Memorizing Names and Faces I often have trouble remembering people’s names - this is true even when I am trying hard. Even if the name is not “hard”. I had a co-worker named “Fred” for some reason I had a very hard time remembering his name. I tried and tried. One day it hit me:...

Original question was “how”: Recommendation: “That’s not my name. Please call me (your name here)” Also: Dale Carnegie says “Always look at things from the other person’s point of view” Why? Because you are more likely to Influence people that way. Steven R. Covey says “Always go for the Win-Win”. A...

I consider a name a personal thing - I use different names in different situations. In some cases I have gone by “Mr. F” - one place I do volunteer IT (information technology work) I always introduce myself as “Brian the Computer Geek”. I have a nickname I use with family and friends but never at wo...

My last name is not all that hard, only two syllables - but people often get it wrong - I mostly “let it go” - my father-in-law actually changed his last name officially because someone told him “you won’t get promoted if the boss can’t pronounce your name”. He removed two “z”’s. One trick is make y...

Sometimes I do robotics, sometimes read, or play Sudoku or solve my 5x5 rubics cube (vcube brand really). Sometimes I coach my son on projects (is that a hobby).

Let me pose a slightly different question: can someone with autism/asperger’s be “successful”? I think the answer is yes. It is all part of the spectrum. Money and your family of origin (“environment”) can make a difference. IQ and all of the things that go into it (“environment” and “genetics”) see...
