The other day someone whom I have never met before came to see me where I work. I was just having a general conversation with this person and she asked me this question: Have You Got Aspergers? My initial reaction was. Am I That Obvious? Reason she asked is her son has it. I have spent the last few years thinking I wasn't that obvious as the psychologist told me that I am mild on the spectrum and it won't be that noticed. Well this person obviously noticed it!

To an average person it probably isn't obvious, but since she has a son with it then she knows the signs and symptoms and you may subtly be giving them off. I wouldn't worry about it, she likely just has a very keen eye due to her son. Professionals in autism, those with autism, and parents of kids with autism may be the only people who can tell and the general population probably has no idea.
