It's the sort of thing of which NT's are often proud. It makes no sense to be proud of something that isn't in any way a result of your achievement, but many NTs are fiercely proud of their ethnicity or even country of birth. But then, NTs aren't very rational. So I can understand the question. Bein...

The office is in Kitsilano.

There isn't much chance of an extension past those three months working for me (I already have an assistant, but he's away for a few months), but depending on your skills there are always opportunities here.

I'll pm you the link to the job posting.

That's why I'm looking for a clerk. I could have someone listed as both Michael and Mike (and M.J.). I could have a woman listed under both her married and maiden name, but with the same e-mail address. I need someone to look at a stream of data and find the patterns in a way that I can't reasonably...

The offer is genuine. I know a lot of Aspies have trouble finding jobs through normal avenues, so I'm trying to offer a side-door for this one job, because I think an Aspie would be really good at it. Thie final decision probably isn't mine, but so far we're having a terrible time finding any applic...

Ellen, My tone was perhaps too harsh. I may have been spending too much time arguing with people on the internet recently (about RPG design, mostly), and the writing style spilled over. To Sylvius: He has to do the dishes each day because of hygienic reasons and because we have given him this as his...

I'm looking for a data clerk on a 3 month contract. I'm in Vancouver, British Columbia. I'd be managing this person, and I'm arguably an Aspie (though I have to allow for the possibility that I'm affecting autism to legitimise my lack of people skills). I think a high-functioning autistic would exce...

My son, Joshua is 16 yo, graduated from high school with 12 college credits. He is brilliant. And he is a typical Aspie with a lack of the common sense skills that make Aspies, Aspies. Keep in mind you you're also bound by the sort of conventional thinking that makes NTs NTs. You also sound like yo...

As for what you should do? I would flat-out avoid English. I personally do not like the subject too much, but that is because my brain is way too literal to understand the hidden meanings of a cat in the background of a fiction book. You don't need to understand it. Just make stuff up. Really. If y...

I recently hired an assistant, and it crossed my mind to seek out an Aspie candidate on purpose, but the whole thing happened too quickly for me to do that. My current assistant might not be working out so well, though. He's not nearly literal enough. So, if I were to hire a new assistant (I'm a Dat...

I have fed her, and I do read to her (she watches the book as I do it - it's the same way I learned to read). And I like her (which is a bit odd - I quite dislike other children). Her mother thinks I'm better at soothing her than she is - I suspect because I'm aware I don't know what I'm doing, so I...

The other day he came up behind me and grabbed my breasts from behind. I immediately became sick to my stomach. I thought I was going to barf. That's a perfectly normal reaction to that sort of behaviour. That was assault. I realise that your aversion to touch is considerably greater than most othe...

I ask because I do. My daughter was born about 7 weeks ago. Her mother is NT.

Do any aspie or ASD parents here have tips on how to relate to children generally, or their children in particular?

Maby aspies have unusual gaits, so that could contribute the the flattening of feet over time.

How's the Mariners doing now? I saw bits of their game a couple of days ago versus the Angels(?) and there was a near free-for-all. Vladimir Guerero got a zinger whistle past his ear. :lol: Good thing Jorge Campillo throws softer than you do. The Mariners had a team this year that probably should h...

siuan, has it ever occured to you to leave your AS husband? Basically, what I'm asking is, do you have the same problems with him that I am referring to. There is wall that is up between us and has torn us apart. My stemming, staying up late at night playing games, and just being generally disconne...

I was like "I didn't know the guy... why would I be sad?" That's a very Aspie thing to do. I got in trouble at work once for saying aloud, "People I don't know die every day; why should this one bother me more than they do?" Now when people get shown around the office they skip my corner. I think I...
