I think #5 applies to me. I'm not sure about #1, I don't think I'm really that intelligent, and certainly not a genius, and as for #9, no, I'm not that good with humour.

 

Sounds interesting, I'll have a look at it in closer detail later.

I think you're really intelligent, Nesf, close to genius level, actually. You probably know the area which you are gifted in. :)

I think that what #2 is trying to say is that we are truly experiencing ourselves as human beings, through all the range of emotions we have. Such as not every human has the emotions we experience. But that's just how I interpreted it. Otherwise, I would also say that #2 doesn't apply to me as well.

Yeah, this really doesn't apply to me (not at the moment, anyway). I've suffered from a serious lack of emotion for some time now, probably because it's been sucked out of me by the misery of the past five years. I suppose #2 could apply to me if I were to transcend all of this trauma, which I'm currently in the process of doing.

I understand why you said it doesn't apply to you. Thanks for explaining. :) That's great what you're doing.

Thank you, Anna. I know that I'm good at learning languages, but I really suck at maths, especially algebra. I have mixed abilities. I don't think that I'd test that well on one of those IQ tests.

I was the opposite.  In school I was great at math but sucked at languages.  I took cognitive tests as part of my assessment and they tested all sorts of skills and abilities.  Only a little bit was about math.  There was general knowledge, stuff with metaphors and other language question, spatial reasoning, memory.  I can't remember what else.  It took a long time to do it all.  I did great at some stuff but terrible at others.  The metaphors were really weird and I'm pretty sure they just made them up.

Good article. It's nice to have someone talking so positively about being on the spectrum. Yes it is a challenge to be on the spectrum. Yes there are times when life feels really difficult because of it. Yet despite that, there are also so many positives about being on the spectrum. I am pleased this article highlights those positives  :)
