Hey, Jonny B. Goode. If your so imaginative, prove it!! !! !! !


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.

Oh, really?
I suppose I'll just mosey on off to the bathroom and cut out my temporal lobe.

The only thing that keeps me sane is my imagination.

Actually, a lot of people, including my parents and quite a few of my teachers see me as creative. But on my standardized IQ tests I do very poory on non-left hemisphere task, and very superior of left hemi tasks!

This is and is not a joke thread. I'm sorry if I riled some of you up, but I'm not sorry because WE HAVE TO DISPEL THIS LACK OF IMAGIANTION MYTH!! ! These clinicians are using this to oppress us, and to tell us that we have reduced personhood! Whoever objects to my sentiment on the first post, post now!! !! !

I'm confused.
Are you saying that people with Aspergers DO have imagination?

Yes, I am saying people with Asperger's DO MOST CERTAINLY have TREMENDOUS IMAGINATION!

Perhaps. Either way, Aspies tend to take things like this literally, and I'm not sure whether what trent just said was meant to be Sarcastic or not.

No. It wasn't sarcastic. A bit hysterical, though.
