Well sorta kinda, think dr House instead when thinking aspergers and autism, just like with Sherlock Holmes.K.ur said:So, the nutty professor was a happy Sherlock Holmes?
Socially awkward/challanged/problematics is just one of the aspects that doesnt qualify you for autistic per default.M920CAIN said:I'm socially challenged, but I don't see myself as smart, so I guess I'm some kind of nerd hybrid, not fully qualified to be a nerd, but definitely not a jock either.
Yeah, I even have an unsubstantiated theory that nerds and even early otaku in Japan all suffered from some form of Autism (i myself have Aspergers). All of the characteristics are evident: limited social interactivity, attachment to items and trends, and in extreme cases like otaku, lack of emotional intelligence in terms of identification and how to respond.DVS BSTrD said:Wellll I have Asbergers so that's probably true. Kinda thought the two were synonymous already.
I would say so, a fair amount of autistics are straightforward in terms of understanding situations and may have problems understanding the emotional side of arguments. House is a good example: he's cocky and overly sure of himself but a lot of conflict comes from him not emphasizing with emotional issues and focusing on the medical side only.Monxeroth said:
