One thing I have observed about him. He uses very little body language, no hand waving, not much shouting, laughing and his feathers are seldom ruffled. If I was to emulate this behaviour a little, I think it would help me in the NT world.

Further analyses of how James Bond differs from your average man say for example Rodney from only Fools and Horses. His use of language, twon of voice yadah yadah

Enough talking get out there and find out for me NOW!. I don’t want to be like Spongebob for ever.

I thought that his solitary nature came across particularly strongly in the recent film.

I believe his behavior is easier to emulate then buddy loves.

I don't think an Aspie can pull it off. James Bond has a way with words. Something we clearly don't. Not to mention, he is in movies

So do most NTs, but some NTs are harder then others. Noel Gallagher would be even harder to emulate even though he sucks ass.

Hey, hey, lay off Noel a second, his brother is the difficult one. My friend suggested James Bond as well, although she did not elaborate why, as I have not seen the most recent one. Guess I should, really...

James Bond is in movies because he is a popular character. Daniel Craig is the chap who should be getting the props, I suppose.

Now you know why 007 makes a fine Poker & Blackjack player. He could have a bum hand or a straight flush and because of the lack of body language you'd never know.

Do women actually find Bond attractive? He's on my top ten list of immediate turn-offs. It's only men I ever hear talking about how great he is.

The problem is that your image of Cmdr Bond has been poisoned by the movies. Ian Fleming wrote about 007 in a series of novels which were not intended as screenplays and his description (his REAL description) is as follows:

Slim build; a three-inch, vertical scar on his right cheek; blue-grey eyes; a "cruel" mouth; short, black hair, a comma of which falls on his forehead ; and (after Casino Royale) the faint scar of the Russian cyrillic letter "Ш" (SH) (for Shpion: "Spy") on the back of one of his hands (carved by a SMERSH agent). In From Russia with Love he is also described as 183 centimeters (6 feet) in height and 76 kilograms (167 lbs.) in weight.

If you want to read more please go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Bond_(character) although I am not sure if this information has been cleared by MI6.

Well done chap! I can see that you know the real James Bond.

I find Sean Connery attractive, but am repelled by Roger Moore and Daniel Craig.

Unlike most autistic people, I am able to interpret facial expressions very well (just not facial features), and Sean Connery's expressions as James Bond are very subtle, but unmistakable to those who can read expressions. He is an NT who is deliberately trying to mask his emotions/opinions/intentions, and this masking is very obvious, and gives off a sense of confidence and strength. An autistic person who can't read expressions would not be ill-advised to emulate James Bond, I don't think, but he or she would not be giving the sense of deliberately masking his/her emotions, and so would not give others the same vibe of confidence and authority. Subtle-but-unmistakable is hard to do, even for me.

But, Bond is so good at improvising and going with the flow in any situation, suavely turning even the worst situation in his favor. It's wishful thinking that I could do that, so I'm not sure Bond is the best example to follow.

I'm a big fan of the Bond movies, at any rate.

I always thought of James Bond (at least the Sean Connery movie version) as the stereotype of an NT male. Maybe even a mild sociopath.

Since voices are very attractive to me, Sean Connery is high up on my list.
I also find Roger Moore repellent.
Not sure about Daniel Craig, at times he can look good, but there's something cold about him.

James Bond's character is interesting, but not attractive. However, the gadgets are. I would be wandering the corridors looking for the techie man, rather than bother with 007.
