onto myself or my own topic of interest
I am good at picking up details and facts I find it hard to work out what
other ppl are thinking or feeling I can focus on certain things for very long periods Ppl often say I was rude,
even when this was unintentional I have usually strong narrow interests I do certain things in a very inflexible and repetetive way I have always had difficulty making friends Thanks for your
listening!! Not everything that steps out of line, and thus “abnormal,” must necessarily be “inferior.”
Hans Asperger (1938)
