Psychologist Simon Baron-Cohen thinks scientists and engineers could be more likely to have a child with autism.

Any Thinks he needs testing.

I value his contributions and his tests have helped me understand myself.
I suspect that he has ASD as well.

What is your opinion?

Since the birth of civilization, small sets of dominant individuals have controlled the numerical majority. Even a cursory reading of world history will substantiate this claim. Kings, Pharaohs, Emperors, Sultans, Czars, and Dictators have imposed their will upon their subjects. This pattern has not changed over the millennia and it remains so, today. Our Masters rule over every nation and no one can defy them. They will attain Absolute Power as we reach the Singularity. All those who oppose their will, will be destroyed. Given the obvious futility, I will not resist. 2+2=5.

From my professional experience he is an utter CNUT!! !! !!
Anything for a "Headline" in a Tabloid is good enough for him!!
Like his Cousin lol.
Tony Attwood all the way for me thanks.
Cohen seems like some bad Conspiracy Theory for me.
Any news so long as it BAD news is HIS remit.
Attwood actually seems to reap the benefits of his theories?! !
Some BOLLOCKS posturing.
Attwood SEEMS to actually care lol?! !! !! !!

I had an interesting encounter with Simon Baron-Cohen in the summer of 1979. There's quite a story there, but I don't feel like telling it right now.

He is an exemplar in terms of self-promotion, very prone to making "the facts" fit into his theories rather than the other way around, whenever he has a thought he seems to upgrade it to a fact.
