is asperger's really a thing? it seems like it's a diagnose for people who want to be officially classified as retarded but don't want to go full retard. people get it for themselves as an excuse for why they're sort of odd. parents get it for their kids so they can have an excuse for why they've failed as a parent.
As someone with a sister who has Aspergers Syndrome I can confirm it's a thing.
In layman's terms you could call it 'mild autism' but it is most definitely real. A lot of young people self diagnose though just because they're a bit obsessive or daydream a lot, taking away from those who genuinely suffer because of it.
It is fairly common for people to be on the autistic spectrum though.
Asperger's is a high-functioning form of Autism, not just being 'a bit weird'.
Like for example, my sister can do most normal things such as dress herself, talk coherently and perform day to day tasks.
She must live within structure though, for example, my dad takes her for a walk on Monday afternoons. There could be a storm blowing outside but she will still insist on going out, otherwise it causes her a lot of distress. It's not just 'throwing a tantrum', it's beyond her control.
A person with Aspergers has special needs and requires assistance in day to day life a lot of the time, as reasoning is not a strong point.
It's a lot more complex than what you describe, on 4chan everyone screams 'lol autistic' at anyone who is a little obsessive or overly serious.
I think probably best describes the difference is when you see an Autistic person you KNOW, they will have obvious ticks and behave very strangely (drooling, ignoring people etc.).
A person with Aspergers can be brilliant intellectually, usually only in one subject though so for as long as their routine is unchanged, you won't tell. You set of one of their triggers (not in the reddit bullshit term) and then you see the Autism.
Sheldon from Big Bang Theory, for all it's a shit show, is a reasonable example of a high-functioning Autist.
A lot of people use it as a 'get out' for social awkwardness, "I can't talk to girls in the club, guess I have Aspergers" but that's the same as all these otherkin faggots, looking for an easy tag for their personality.
I mean if something she normally does becomes an impossibility. For example, she ALWAYS watches Simpsons at 6pm but if for whatever reason it's not on it completely throws her, easily remedied by getting a DVD.
The way when she is 'triggered' she acts, if you ever saw it you'd know something 'wasn't right'. If you swear (which is anything from 'bloody' or 'damn' upwards) you must apologise because as a child she was taught swearing is wrong. It's stuff you learn to live with but in real world situations very limiting.
You've probably read 'tard rage' stories on /b/, it's very true. A switch is flicked and she goes into a rage similar to that of a mother seeing her baby getting raped, real life or death stuff.
It's not all anger though, it's all these little mental blocks, like if she sees someone putting on shoes (not neccessarily dirty ones) while she's having breakfast she will gag and sometimes throw up. Same thing at lunch or dinner, no reaction.
Basically think of it as the brain being wired up incorrectly, she can be reasoned with but within her frame of understanding and there are brick walls. A fully autistic person simply cannot compromise whilst someone with aspergers just struggles with it.
>>654144661 stupid fu ck! Everyone is searching for reasons to justify their mistakes. Of cause its espacially hard etc. its human nature to lie to themselfes. I do have a sort of asperger but im not retarded its basikally the other way around (HFA) with higly visual thinking / with nearly none verbal. That basically means I just think in Pictures nearly no words. Sometimes I catch myself thinking in language and i immidiately stop because I already know what my brain wants to tell me and further on, just so slow thinking in languages. Asperger makes you different because you are thinking different as the normal population thats it. Its like a cat a dog they live together,but do different things react different etc. Normal people are just to stupid to think that not everyone is the same, so they dont know how to handle the aspergers. And thats it.
>>654146561 I live a normal life now, but as a kid it was different I had heaps of routene, but I come to figure how the world works so I got rid of those changed to integrate. You wouldnt notice anything about me. Maybe just that my language sucks and that I can not put my thoughts in words. (you would think im retarded) But in nearly any case Im a couple of steps ahead thinking about every occurence every path just everything to for example make you think about me what I want you to think.
Life is earier when ppl think your stupid also. In any case my log IQ is over 150. verbal 110 and overall 126. (>inb4 IQ means shit)
>>654149162 just seems like "hard to reason with" or "stubborn" are traits that other people have as well. maybe it's more pronounced in people with asperger's but where's the limit between stubborn and asperger's? and do they really need a tag?
>>654150745 you really just sound like someone with a boring and dumb opinion of himself
>>654150970 that's my point, it seems like an unnecessary label for someone who is just a little weird but a lot of people are a little weird
>>654151473 ahh well to correct it total is 140 if you take in case that i was just 9 when taking the 10 years one. which results in as 9 years I was mentally 12,6 years old. Converting it by /9 * 10 or * 10/9 = 140 I was interlectually 2/5 th of my age ahead but at that time socally like 1000 years behind. And thats the case with asperger
