    What do you guys think?
    Any individual with asperger's could be any type, just often it seems that they misinterpret their type because of certain behaviors associated with having asperger's. In fact, Se doms and would probably be the least likely (although still possible) people to have aspergers, due to problem with interaction of the immediate external environment; Fi is just ones personal values, which has nothing to do with the asperger behaviors.

    The same can be said for Fe; an individual with aspergers can adhere to the external established norms of society, but they simply have more difficulty doing so; although it is also imperative to remember that there is an autistic spectrum, and AS effects people on different scales; some don't have the condition asmuch as other or develop less behaviors as they age, thus it is possible for them to practice and utilize functions like Fe, Ne, or Se, better. Other's may have the condition to such a degree that they only develop functions like Ti, Ni, and Si, and since this is more common, it may explain why most woth aspergers identify as INTP/INTJ (and why so many people make the false correlation between aspergers and those types).

    My 24 year old brother was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome at 11 and identifies as ENFJ. He's a special education teacher working towards his masters and tours the country and contributes to books on the subject for educating educators on the disorder.

    I have a friend who's ENFJ son has this. He's a very sweet version of Sheldon from TBBT.

    I don't think I have apergers necessarily, but I used to think that I had all the "negative" features of INFPs and INTPs, but without the positive aspects of either. So I thought I had the social grace of INTP with the fuzzy/ illogical/ non-math thinking of an INFP. I'm good with spreadsheets, but I'm primarily motivated, inspired by anecdotes.

    Of course, I'm not as self-loathing, but social genius I would say I am not. I don't just think about people all the time. But I believe my driving force is 4w5 with bottomless hunger for dribbling crumbs of love, acceptance and appreciation from other people. So if I do make a spreadsheet, my motivating force is the appreciation of people who receive it.

    Yet, out among the humans, I might look in the general direction of people while talking to them (or maybe I might look at them). But, I sort of live in an isolated bubble when I'm outside; some kind of alien.

    I thought NFs were all COMPLETELY unaware of their environments, especially INFPs.

    I think my brother has this but it's never been formally diagnosed. He is an ENFJ.

    um, I know an ESFJ who has it. If a Fe-dom SJ extrovert can have it, anyone can.
