I'm not imaginative or creative. But I daydream a lot.

Okay, where should I start on how wrong that was?

1. People with AS can be some of the most imaginative people out there. The guy who created "Star Trek", the guy who created "Pokemon" had AS, and so on and so forth.

2. Nothing ever stated that Aspies don't daydream. You're thinking of autistics not being able to daydream, and that was talking about the full-on severe ones, while AS is at a much, much higher level on the spectrum.

3. I'm not creative or imaginative huh? Then how come in third grade I wrote the best story for ISTEP in the state? And how come people say I still have the imagination of a five-year-old when I'm eighteen? Answer that!

That's a false generalization. Lewis Carroll was also autistic. I'm an aspie and daydream more than I should and I plan on being a screen/comic writer. So nyeeh.

I am not an Asperger.
And I do daydream.
Although my life would probably be easier if I didn't. :)

I'm intensely imaginative and creative. And daydream a lot. And fantasize, and ... oh, um ... :oops:

I agree, it's a false generalization.

I also read somewhere that most people with Aspergers have either average or above average intelligence, Trent.

Imagination does not just come like that. I could really imagine you spilling a drink on your computer and frying it though. Seriously, your ideas are wrong and your own personal experience differs to those of other people, obviously. Yes, Aspies might have a tendency to be more logical and disbelieving in things that seem illogical and without proof, but I can imagine things if I try. I'm just not the creative type in certain senses.
