    Default Is your head too big?

    Article links autism with big heads.

    Let this add fuel to the fire.

    As I recall, Einstein was born with a relatively big head. So maybe a big head isn't a bad thing.

    And men can sometimes have two big heads, though that second big head should only be discussed here.

    As for the article, I don't know if it adds fuel to this fire, but it certainly adds fuel to back up my theory of what I think is not a disability but a personality difference. I am quite convinced that that autistic spectrum "disorders" correlate to the Phlegmatic temperament.

    Isn't brainsize at least mildy correlated with intelligence?

    I could never wear those one-size-fits all hats. Even some sunglasses can be too tight. I have a big melon.

    My husband's mother's side has notoriously big heads. They also tend to be brilliant and quirky in a way that I would not consider incompatible with autism.

    My sons are high functioning autistics. One of them seems to have a proportionally large head, but the other doesn't. Both of them are small for their ages and skinny. They are very picky eaters.

The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    There's an image.

    Do you have to knock the brains back in?

    Or keep your ears plugged?
