chez1978, you’re going to love this link. Neurotypical people are boring! That applies to about almost everybody on Friendster blogs. I end up deleting those email notifications anyway.
The wonders of Wikipedia has let me mistakenly self-diagnose myself with Asperger’s syndrome. What’s a bored geek to do? Maybe I should copy the attributes I can diagnose myself with and define it as Albertism.
““You have a need for other people to like and admire you, and yet you tend to be critical of yourself. While you have some personality weaknesses you are generally able to compensate for them. You have considerable unused capacity that you have not turned to your advantage. Disciplined and self-controlled on the outside, you tend to be worrisome and insecure on the inside. At times you have serious doubts as to whether you have made the right decision or done the right thing. You prefer a certain amount of change and variety and become dissatisfied when hemmed in by restrictions and limitations. You also pride yourself as an independent thinker; and do not accept others’ statements without satisfactory proof. But you have found it unwise to be too frank in revealing yourself to others. At times you are extroverted, affable, and sociable, while at other times you are introverted, wary, and reserved. Some of your aspirations tend to be rather unrealistic.” – B.R. Forer; isn’t his description of you pretty damn straight on?
