    Default Asperger's Syndrome and MBTI type.

    If this Asperger's Syndrome message board I post at is representative of us "Aspies" as a whole the most common type is INTJ followed by INTP and ISTJ.

    Maybe the INTJs are actually INTP. They may only think they are INTJ.
    What is the Enneagram of these INTJs? 5w4 ?

    I went through the individual answers.
    When you look at the thing in detail you get the picture.

    The MBTI is correct in the principle only. The loophole is not a catch.

    The definition of autism per se: IT.

    N/S
    Classical autism: Between the medial S/N and the extreme S;
    Asperger: Between the medial S/N and the extreme N.

    IT is often accompanied by weak Fe. It is this weakness that may mean an individual manifests some behaviours characteristic of the Autism Spectrum Disorders. And that in no way proves that the root cause is a common one.

    An important distinction, I think.

    Yeah definitely. And the criteria for diagnosing it is so broad that I doubt one root cause is possible.

    1. qualitative impairment in social interaction
    2. restricted, repetitive and stereotyped behaviors and interests
    3. significant impairment in important areas of functioning
    4. no significant delay in language development
    5. no significant delay in cognitive development, self-help skills or adaptive behaviors (other than social interaction)
    6. criteria are not met for another specific pervasive developmental disorder or schizophrenia.

    I think this is about right, though online forums are usually slightly N-biased.
    IxTx is very common for aspies. S/N is a funny things for us. Aspies tend to be divided into those of us who are ultra aware of our surroundings, and those of us who totally detach ourselves from the outer world. The latter tend to take the characteristics of the intuitive, except that intuitive aspies will still have some trouble with interpretations of things, especially with the whole literal vs. non-literal thing.

    Another thing I have noticed with aspies is that the cognitive processes don't make sense at all for some of us. For example, having Aspergers makes it pretty difficult to have strong Ni, and almost impossible to have strong Fe, but any type other than INTJ or INFJ might not make sense at all.

    P/J is another story which I shall tackle later
