    I thought I might be an aspie for quite a long time. I've never been officially diagnosed and have no current interest in seeing a specialist.

    Since getting into MBTI and JCF, I have come to highly doubt I am a true aspie, although my wife still insists she thinks I am one. I tried to explain Jungian Cognitive Functions to her and explain I merely have weak Fe, but her eyes always sort of glaze over when I try to talk about MBTI and she thinks my interest in typology is kind of silly and obsessive (even though she swears by Ayurvedic types--I even went so far as trying to interest her in the enneagram and temperament theory, since I think they overlap somewhat with the ayurvedic types)--she even tried to convince me that my obsessive pursuit of various interests, topics, and hobbies indicates aspergers or autism.

    The frustrating thing is that she will bring me up in conversation with friends, telling them how she is married to an autistic guy. What's even funnier, though, is that her friends are usually confounded. "Ryan? But he's so charming and doesn't seem socially awkward at all"

    Meh, I give up.

    When I told my friends that I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, they were surprised. It's not always so obvious I guess. This doesn't mean that you probably do though. \

    Asperger's is becoming the new ADD and OCD. Everybody's got it. The difference between having "real" ADD, OCD, Asperger's, etc and having similar behavioural characteristics is how it impacts your quality of life.

    I dated a boy in high school as well as college who has Aspberger's.

    He is definitely an ISTJ. While I do not know any other people who have Aspberger's, after interacting with him I would warrant a guess that most people with Aspberger's are IXFJ.
    I have a hard time seeing INTP, or not really hard, I can see why, but they are generally pretty precise people from the research I did into the subject, granted this was years ago, as well as my own experiences with the one I knew.

    When we broke up it was Valentines Day weekend and I was really sick and had been cold (emotionally) the night before and when I was leaving his campus to drive back to my own school he placed a stick on the hood of my car and that was the last time either of us communicated until I went back home after moving to the other side of the country (about 4 years later) and he drove to see me and hang out. Really weird kid but really cool. Do not ever argue with him, though. My god is it wearisome.

    I have asbergers syndrome according to a doctor. When I touch certain materials it feels like my skin is burning. I feel too much so I shut down and I have meltdowns - I feel like professor Xavier after receiving a mind blast. Initially I denied it to myself because I know I have empathy but now psychologists have discovered that asbergers syndrome is too much empathy hence the body cannot sort it out and it overloads the circuits of the person.

    Basically someone with asbergers will take on the emotions of the room and it becomes confusing for them to see or know who is feeling what. Emotions are like super bright lights that blind me.

    I have a stone cold poker face in real life and don't let people know and try to hide it. If someone gets close they can take advantage of the fact that I function on a level of logic and credit their account for trust.

    I can't stress enough though that I feel deep empathy. I literally feel pain in my body when I watch movies where there is too much violence. I once passed out because someone on the big screen was bleeding slowly and it felt like blood was coming out of my own body. I convulsed in the theater and passed out.

    Basically asperger syndrome is a spectrum thing and it really isn't a disorder. But for someone to be really physically meeting the criteria it has to be some sort of sensory issue at hand.

    It's genetic. I have a moderately high IQ and I am good with people and the only way you can tell I have it is if you spend hours with me because I will talk incessantly about something that I am profoundly interested in and then apologize continuously for my thirty minute intellectual brain blasts.

    I also have certain idiosyncrasies I don't really care to get in to.

    But again, I am athletic, I don't seem autistic, and I Don't meet the stereotypical image of someone with asbergers until you realize that there are certain limits I have with my sensory perceptions and my ability to filter and process emotions which I am hypersensitive to.

    For example, a sad person I meet my be stuck in my mind for years. The perception of their deep and profound sadness will hurt me and then I will cry for days even if I don't know the person - simply the look of sadness on their face will haunt me.

    Then suddenly I will start crying for impersonal reasons and then I will have a meltdown because my brain feels like its heating up and I don't know what to do.

    Finally I just have to use my logic to say that I need to worry about taking care of myself and surviving in a cold world where people don't consider the affects of their words or actions on a regular basis.

    The biggest thing for me are the meltdowns. I thought they were nervous break downs but they are actually sensory overloads, or melt downs.

    It's the same thing with telivision. If I watch the news for too long I will just start crying and huddle in a corner rocking back and forth. I am crying because I am feeling the pain of the opressed in my body. IT's hard to explain. I have a strong stomach. I can take a lot of pain but when I See other people suffering tremendously it feels like punches to my gut and my brain feels like it's on fire.

    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.

    J/P
    J for P
    I am a aspie INTJ, 5w4 sp/sx. I'm into the philosophes ones (Marx, Nietzsche, Sarte, Rand).

    Many forget, but Asperger's is not a personality disorder, is a neurological condition! They can be of any type, although they tend to introversion and have difficulty with the Fe (As to understand social rules, not empathy itself).

    and the rest. It seems like an NT thing, mostly I, and the very specific areas of personal interest makes me think P.
    Many aspies are INFP too, probabily there is the feeling type most probabily for aspies...

    No, they tend to avoid the physical world because of sensory hypersensitivity or have hyposensitivity. I have AS and am INTJ (Ni dominant), and am more open to new things (since I have planned before and feel in control of things) and observing the environment than the Si / Ne aspies I know, despite have more sensory difficults than many of them. And difficulties (Difficulties, not a "total lack") in use Ni and Si is linked to deficit in executive function, but it has linked more to ADHD than Autism, due it people with ADHD tend to be perceivers.
