If you can, describe Aspergers with a list of single or compound words, not sentences.

Example:
quiet
creative
miscommunication
anxiety
solitude
hyper-focus
neurotype

etc...

Using different words is redundant? Creative, anxiety?
I was not asking for anyone to repeat them selves repetitiously in a repetitive manor repeatingly.

Agreed. Here are some additional words I'd use to describe AS:

Irrational
Confusing
Nonsensical
Obsessive
Childlike
Defensive
Escapist

(As a disclaimer, I'm not talking about everyone with AS, but rather I'm going by personal experience, ie traits of AS that have manifested in me)
