I experience many of those things too, Eliza. Perfectionism/fear of failure has prevented me from doing things i loved and often keeps me from reaching my potential. I'm so concerned about doing the right thing, the right way, etc etc. 

But this agitation is different than that. Maybe it's just the stress of the season I'm in. My life is pretty drastically different than it used to be and although I love my job the work, hours and expectations are not consistent. But I'm not sure that's really the issue here either. I don't know, maybe I'm just making too much of it all.

Maybe you are right Eliza, maybe with my somewhat recent Asperger's diagnosis I'm still trying to define who I am and all that.

Transitions are hard for most people, but especially taxing on us aspies.

I so agree with your statement that all this 'keeps us from reaching our potential'. I think this aspie attribute is the main thing that separates most aspies from the Temple Grandin's and Bill Gate's of the world who lean towards savants. They somehow broke through these fears and obstacles.

I have a brain type 8 too! I hope other people on this site check it out. It would be fun to see how many of us are 'eights'.

Doing the short quiz distracted me, then I went off to read some blogs that inspire me. I think (I am going through emotional growing pains, lol.) I feel tons better.

Thanks for sharing the link.:) .

Could you share a link to this test? Thank you

He has been doing good PBS specials for the past ten years or so. I have brain type 8 according to his free test.

 

Checked out the above link--interesting. Listening to the aspie moms, especially the nurse makes me angry at the money-making schemes so many of 'Autistic Clinics' stole from her family and so many more families. It would have been great to have found a caring doctor when I was a kid, but that wasn't how it worked back then. I do wish people would stop calling autism a 'mental illness'. It is a 'neurological difference'.

Sometimes, things like that pile up and make you feel bad.

When I have things to deal with and I don't deal with them, even if they're small, they tend to become heavy with time. :mellow:

I tried this link, but unfortunately they make you register to get the results. They also don't tell you that you have to register until you've done all the questions, which is rather annoying :(

If I recall they ask for your first name and email. You can always unsubscribe if you don't want to continue getting their emails.

It's a short quiz, sort of fun. Your 'brain type' shows up after the last question.
