    I was amused one day. Myself and about 10 INTJs all took a generic aspie test. Guess who came out top?

    Hey cool vid. Haha, it's really trying to romanticize them.

    I was looking at the pic thread at the aspie forum wrongplanet.net months ago too, and the look is definitely consistent. Absence of emotion... introspective-looking... calm... wise, in some cases...

    I saw some makeup on those female eyes tho... that's not aspie!

    According to a few tests I've taken, it's likely I'm an Aspie, but I don't think I am (although it would be nice to be able to say I was). Wanting to take care of people who feel helpless and alone seems like it's definitely an NF thing, especially NFP. Fi has a tendency to bond with animals, small children and people with unusual communication styles like people with Asperger's while Ne has the ability to decern complicated communication patterns and see the hidden meaning in things. this is really the only thing that gives away that I am a feeler (my normal personality is SO not F haha). once my high school choir director screamed at this kid with asperger's until he started crying and I let her have it. if the entire school didn't here us, I would be very surprised. Psychotic choir director vs ENFP with violated ideals is a pretty vicious spectacle (make this INFP and you'll pretty much have Joan of Arc).

    I just want to say that while I have compassion for people with Asperger's, living with a parent who has it is devastating, debilitiating, just plain awful. If you want to pursue a relationship with someone with Asperger's, try to think hard about what kind of parent that person will be before you have children.

    I don't think I know anyone with Asperger's. Many people on the forum took this Asperger's quiz, but I can't speak to its accuracy. About Aspie-neurotypical romance, there was that movie, Adam, on the topic. The movie seemed to broach the topic fairly realistically, just in my perception and from what a friend told me about an Aspie guy who was enamored of her once. Sorry, I am not contributing much to this discussion beyond a movie recommendation and a quiz link. But I do want to share with you the lovely score:

    So how do you separate them from ADD/AD/HD people then?

    I know a guy ho once without no reason imitated my nabour.. My nabour had a squeaky voice and the dude repeated it and laughed. The nabour got angry and yelled at him.

    Only the "aspie" found it funny. Or so it seemed.. I don`t think he really did tho..

    What is this question a response to?

    Indeed, there is a lot of overlap between the outward presentations of Asperger's and ADHD, but the difference lies in the root diagnostic criteria.

    Some sort of attention impairment is required for ADHD, but not for Asperger's.

    Some sort of social delay is required for Asperger's, but not for ADHD.

    There's also a similarity between autism/asperger's and bipolar disorder, they suspect.

    I can find the article on it if you'd like. It makes a lot of sense.

    EDIT: Autism and Familial Major Mood Disorder
