I have a very simple question. Is there a proper way or appropriate place online where I can share my experiences in the mental health system and hospitals? I've been through a lot, although I'm in a relatively stable living situation right now. I haven't been able to get proper therapy for what I ...

Apparently a lot of aspie people are INTJ, including myself. I am quite intensely INTJ. Its interesting to read of others in this forum who are not INTJ. I wonder sometimes what proportion of the total Jungian/MBTI personality spectrum is influenced by degrees of autism vs. NT? I am wondering wheth...

Yeah, interestingly AS is supposed to be associated with immature facial features as well as personality.

Welcome :) There are plenty of people on here who are undiagnosed and/or questioning whether they have AS, so in that respect you fit in fine :lol: By the way dunno if that was a typo, but you mean 'insight', not 'incite' (yea I like things to be spelled correctly :p).

This is about special interests, I guess. Sometimes I get really upset over my special interest, but I can't "talk it over" with anybody because it's so specific and unless they happen to do some research on my special interest and plan an equally specific response, they won't be able to make me fe...

what i wasn't aware of is that the protoganist, chris boone, doesn't have AS (according to someone on this forum), but rather is an autistic savant; i'm starting a new thread about it because it was a really long thread. 'Indeed, if Christopher John Francis Boone has Asperger's, as we've been led to...

I find I look awkward, literally all the time. I have too much self-awareness, which makes me notice how awkward I might look a lot of the time, being so I look clumsy (always getting in people's way in shops) and unconfident too (not quite knowing how to be or where to look). But I also feel awkwa...

Exactly my thoughts. Though I've been wondering about introvert NTs. They tend to get exhausted by social interaction, is their brain lacking desensitization like the autistic brain is, but not as strongly? Or in other words, is Autism only an end in a Neurotype spectrum, and "High Neurotypicality"...

I've already seen my GP who passed me on to another GP who said he would apply for funding for me to be assessed. prior to him telling me this, I've no...

I think that it does show general preferences fairly reliably. However, I think that it can be relied on too much as an absolute result rather than a preference. This can lead to employers deciding xxxx doesn't fit on the yyyy team without considering other aspects. People can change to another typ...

I'm in the middle of getting a diagnosis. I went to my doctor's and asked to be referred. No one's ever said anything about needing funding, it's all been very straight forward. I just get sent letters for appointments and I go to them.

I once read online somewhere that the highest IQ someone ever had was 175 and he was the smartest person in the world. Anyone who claims to have a higher IQ than that, I don't believe them. They maybe took an online IQ test or something and those are not accurate. I know even real IQ tests can be i...

If that happens to me, it's usually a sign of prolonged stress or depression, and the seemingly trivial thing was just the straw that broke the camel's back.


Same.
