He was a pretty minor character and didn't have much screen time but thats the idea I got anyway.

Vincent D'nofrio (sp?) also kind of looks like my dad. Well, like if he were overweight he'd look more like my dad, like he did in Full Metal Jacket.

How could I forget the creature? No wonder Frankenstein was always one of my favorite books when I was in school.

Anyone remember Aaron Pratt? A higher functioning autie on a CSI episode that involved the poisoning of a co-worker with ricin.


I remember that episode. Wasn't he the suspected killer who is exonerated when he helps prove it was a woman in the museum who "done it?" I seem to remember poisoned leaves in a book???

I didn't read all the replies, but if he hasn't been mentioned, Raistlin Majere from the Dragonlance series.

Just about every character - Spongebob Squarepants

Quote:
(Spongebob is extremely routine oriented to the point where he has a tantrum when he can't go to work on time. He is very OCD about his job and completely breaks down when he thinks he forgot the pickles on a hamburger. He is a grown man (sponge) and living alone, but is extremely immature (blows bubbles, loves sqeaky toys). He is very hyperactive and does a lot of stimming. He has imaginary friends. He has a very irregular speech pattern. He has an obsessive interest in jellyfishing. I wonder if the show was intentionally made to exhibit autism.)

Patrick might qualify for moderately functioning autism. He seems retarded, and the show never portrays him as having any sort of job or life beyond following Spongebob around and living under a rock....very overly emotional as well.

Sandy - definite Aspie


Hermione Granger, Neville Longbottom, Xenophilius(sp) Lovegood - Harry Potter series

Ben - Castaways of the Flying Dutchman series by Brian Jacques

Ender and Bean from the Ender's Game/Shadow series

Some more advanced literature:

Sydney Carton & Dr. Manette - A Tale of Two Cities
Pip - Great Expectations
David Copperfield

Raskolnikov- Crime and Punishment by Dostoyevsky

Creature - Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

I remember a time in my childhood when I was obsessed with making booby traps to the extent that people got hurt (no seriously, I had some sense of responsibility) but all I could think of was how well the trap worked and how cool it looked. This is sort of how I imagine the Joker thinks.


Joker seems to have a "theory of mind" (perhaps a werong theory, but a theory nevertheless) - his actions are nothing more than a giant psychological expriment.


That doesn't mean anything. A psychological experiment using humans as test subjects sounds somewhat aspie to me. Perhaps that is because I am more morbid aspie than most here. If I had the resources, I might want to do something like The Joker did, just to show people how illogical their morals really are. I am also quite disgusted with what people will do for money. It is just cotton with a dead president on it. It's value is purely psychological. To say he is not an aspie based on the experiment is not an adequate argument.

Most humans live delusional and illogical lives. The Joker is not insane, he is completely sane. Those who live by "morals" and "laws" they are taught from childhood are the delusional ones. He tries to show them this. Unfortunately, most aspies also follow the delusion of society.

I hope you all enjoy your worthless moral code.

Captain Marlowe from the movie Apocolypse Now. Quote I hardly said a word to my wife until I said yes to a divorce." His behavior during while being assigned his mission and his focus on the mission all point to this character being an Aspie.

Abby from NCIS. So obviouse they almost modeled her character on an Asperger's description.

There's a reason why I have a poster of the Joker in my room.

Anya from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Not only did she have Asperger's, but she was the funniest character on the show.
