I tend to get jealous of people who have more things than me. Is jealousy connected to having AS? Or is it just me? :?

Actually, I would say most Aspies tend to be more content w/ physical possessions than th general public

Jealousy is more of a woman thing :)

Can only answer for me. I never seem to get jealous. I'm more likely to say, Here take it and walk away.

I think people here have different values, and aren't generally so bothered about material possessions.

HOWEVER they also tend to have obsessive interests and these can lead to jealousy.

I can't name any recent occasions where I was jealous of something; I just find myself content as is. :)

I'm about the most un-jealous person that there could be.

I do kind of feel like SteveK said though, where maybe I get jealous of other people's talents, but I wouldn't even call it jealous. If I see someone can draw really well, I just feel a little sad and think "Aw darn, I wish I could do that."

I usually get jealous over people having a better social life than me.. i never get jealous over material things though.
