Thread: Hey!

  1. #1

    Default Hey!

    New here, of course; I'm not new to MBTI theory, since I've been reading it on and off for a couple of years (I have Asperger's, and it's one of those "special interests" that we concentrate on with such intensity. Intense focus, perfectionism, control issues--all a hallmark of being on the spectrum). I like to talk about this MBTI stuff, and online is the only place I can go where people care about it! And it's interesting to see how other people's perspectives play out.

    Other things about me: I'm a voracious reader and was hyperlexic as a child; I enjoy journaling, traveling, studying history and psychology, and I just got into yoga in order to correct the mind-body balance issues I have (I live in my head too much). I'm not sure of my exact MBTI, but I do know that I'm a hardcore introvert and need lots and lots of down time before I'm ready to get out and socialize again. What frustrates me is that there's such a huge difference between what I'm capable of socially and what other people see on a day to day basis. Obviously, everyone wears a "mask," depending on who they're with, but I think people on the autism spectrum tend to be hyper-aware of theirs.

    I'm a writer by profession. When I was little I wrote a short story about an artichoke named Artie and other stories featuring one of my dolls. Now I'm a technical writer, go figure. My dream, though, is to realize my dream of writing a book about AS that might help other women on the spectrum, but general acedia sometimes prevents me from actually doing it.

    Hope to see you around!

    Hi and bienvenido!

    If you're interested in sharing any short stories on here I think that would be really cool!

    If not, that's cool too : )
    Hope you enjoy your time here.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.
