Better? I don't like stereotyping either, but I see more than a kernel of truth in in some of these associations. It's not so much understanding where you "belong", though that helps; it's understanding what to do when you are clearly where you do not belong. Some people have a harder time with this than others, and I suspect the degree of difficulty and what causes it is a big part of where one falls on the so-called autism spectrum.
