    Many introverted types might have traits in common with Aspergers/High functioning autism. I thought for about 10 years I was an aspie. I've lately come to question that. I "zone out" a lot and can find external stimuli to be jarring and uncomfortable, which is something I've read many aspies experience.

    I'm pretty sure aspergers is another way of saying "unhealthy IxTJ."

    If you are really worried, I would suggest you do not self diagnose, but rather seek out a qualified psychologist, with whom you have rapport, and ask them for their qualified diagnosis.

    so you can't be an aspie unless you're an ISTJ or INTJ?

    You just sound like a nerdy, introverted person to me. The evidence isn't very compelling, but like @Mole said, if you're really worried get a professional diagnosis.

    Well, no, they don't need to be. I personally have very mild aspergers, but it's also pretty much completely overcome as of now.

    Anyway, here's how it works for me:
    1. Detachment from social contexts.
    2. Strong powers of focus in certain areas.
    3. Obsessions with minor details.
    4. Not picking up on societal trends.
    5. Being seen as a very weird kid.

    I just don't like that certain personality traits are assigned to mental disorder

    - I've always had problems with social awkwardness, and for me it's not getting better. I have not made any new friends in person for 6 years. I find it very difficult to start or maintain a conversation.

    - I have some trouble reading peoples facial expressions sometimes, and I don't make eye contact with people, I never have really. When I think about it, I do, but when I don't think about it I never do.

    - My interests are kind of limited, i am interested in psychology, personality quizzes, food but not really much else. I can seriously talk about personality quizzes for hours, same with cats. I find it difficult wathing things and reading books I'm not interested in.

    - My small motor skills are bad. I am terrible at crafting, sewing (the instructions are hard for me to understand, there's WAY too much detail in it for me), my hand-writing is very messy, I am slow learning hands-on stuff but usually great at learning theory and concepts..

    - I am clumsy and awkward sometimes, but not all the time.

    - I only wear 2-3 outfits, I don't put any effort in to hair or makeup..

    I don't know, I think a more mild form of asperger's is a possibility but I question that because I don't have any special routines nor am I a fan of schedules like most people with Asperger's are. I'm not skilled or talented at anything, really.

    In real life it is actually painful to listen to me talk because I am horrible at putting sentences together when I talk sometimes.
    No.

    Maybe psychologists will differ, but then:

    - somebody can have no friends by choice
    - a person who only cares about clubbing and celebrities has by definition limited interests
    - i've never sewn in my lifetime, and i think in modern times people only do this as a hobby
    - And? many "healthy" people
    - some people refuse to do so out of principle. are they weird or abnormal?

    You're normal IMO, not ill because idiot psychologists like to label people or don't see humanity as complex as the rest of NORMAL humanity does

    Societal trends? so people who don't own smartphones are ill? or those who still use vinyl over MP3s? lulz..

    I would say further that the Asperger symptoms make little sense. They say to be highly social, but yeah, many people only stay in their cliques and are super nice to others lol.. I guess people who "fit in and are normal" who exclude others on superficial whims are "aspies" also, eh?
