I know that everyone on the spectrum is vastly different, but many of us, (including myself) desperately want to help people, but lack emotionally empathy.

I realise that there are jobs out there that can seriously effect people because of the emotional empathy they endure because of them. (E.g, Facebook mods, anything to do with the emergency line, etc.)

I feel like these jobs would be a perfect fit for moral, empathy-less people.

Can anyone think of examples? Preferably ones that someone of normal intelligence, with aspie social interests could fill? Even better, jobs that can be done in a rural area?

I've been successfully working data entry for 39 years.

Data entry, and civil service jobs in general, are pretty good jobs for Aspies.

Computer jobs. Factory jobs. Jobs where you don't have to have much contact with the public.

I work in a library as a part-time job. I only have to deal with college students and faculty; in general, they are easier to deal with than "the public."

Hey. I work in a veterinary clinic in the Bronx. For almost 11 years now. I also have a hobby - I do clay modeling and sell it all on Amazon. Good luck!

Do you feel an especial affinity for nonhuman animals?
