I recently came across a website that turns the "four temperaments," a sort of pseudo-psychological theory from ancient times that once claimed that different amounts of fluid in one's body could affect one's personality, into an interesting theory that describes different types of personalities in ...

If he could, it wouldn't be a real Legend of Zelda game.

If someone gave me TEN thousand dollars every fifteen days for pretending to agree with him, I still wouldn't do it.

This is more about mental health than physical health, I guess. I just read an interesting article on The New York Times' website about a possible connection between low levels of thyroid hormone and depression or high levels of thyroid hormone and anxiety. Just thought I'd share! Edit: Depending on...

I could really use some support from someone who has had to tell a loved one about this. My fiancée and I have been together almost three years and I just recently found out about having Asperger's a few weeks ago. I've been planning this conversation about ever since I was diagnosed. I even have n...

Since Aspies are diverse in the expression of their symptoms, I think it is important that you don't use every symptom or aspie trait available to describe the character. Perhaps he has a special interest, but doesn't stim. Maybe he has a language difficulty, but it manifests in awkwardly formal spe...

It will eventually work if none of the major players in the middle east collapse. The biggest problem with the two-state solution is that both parties want the same land--Jerusalem. So when both sides see reason and come up with a compromise, say, making Jerusalem international territory so everyone...

I don't know what the general community's problem with Autism Speaks is, but my problem with it is that the organization appears to exist for the purpose of supporting the friends and family of autists rather than the autists themselves. Many of their advertising campaigns that I have seen emphasize...

I have always had that problem. Until I learned what ASDs were, I thought it was a result of my nonverbal learning difficulties, but prosopagnosia (the inability to recognize faces) and prosopamnesia (the inability to remember them) are apparently really common (relatively speaking, of course) among...

A psychologist. A lot of NTs don't understand Asperger's well enough to recognize it, but there are also a lot of Aspies who desire kinship enough that they will attempt to give an amateur diagnosis to anyone they see as different from NTs. Neither group is qualified to make a diagnosis/decision wit...

I am in college, so I'm not entirely convinced this belongs in the adolescent forum, but it certainly doesn't belong in the adult forum. : | Two of my good friends, one of whom I have known since childhood and the other of whom was my roommate at the time, have gotten into a fight. The actual incide...

When I was a child, my therapist made it very clear that she did not like me, though she never went as far as to say it. But she always told me that if I didn't act like I was stupid, people would hate me and I would have to be a waitress for the rest of my life. With the power of hindsight, I belie...

I know this is OT and i'm trying to say this in the nicest way i can put it: ENOUGH! Dear moronic as*hole - a "lack of empathy" is not a diagnostic criteria for Aspergers or Autism . Not knowing what the different feelings are is "lack of social reciprocity" (read the f***ing DSM will ya?). It's be...

I went on and tried to have a conversation with it, but it seems like it is not nearly as clever as its programmers would like us to believe. And of course, none of the identifying information about myself herein is true. User: Hello! How are you? Cleverbot: Good. How are you? User: I ...
