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!
