Indeed, I make it a point to always go back and apologize if (in the heat of the moment/moment of my stress) my internal filters go off-line and I end up speaking my mind for everyone to hear. I have found it's so easy to stand up to the colleague, Super or even CEO in anger when I believe I'm right but so hard to return and apologize later after I had time to think about it... If I didn't I'm sure I would have been sacked years ago.

People with Aspergers are not good at being manipulative so this just does not happen.
The most one can hope for is if the person on the spectrum is really good at their job they are worth having around.

As for social mistakes, the strategy is to apologise and kiss ass.

No special treatment if a person becomes more of a liability than an asset they are gone and people with Aspergers far from having a free pass are in-fact much more vulnerable to getting the chop.

I notice some of those with the condition are prone to online trolling for the sake of attention seeking as they seem unable to interact with people in a normal way.

My impression of these people is that they are very annoying and emotionally immature.
They may seem intelligent but they seem to panic when they have to do anything outside their narrow comfort zone.

They seem to mess up all relationships and friendships that is if they can even form them in the first place.
They also come across as selfish and weird and they can ask the same question over and over again as if looking for reassurance.

Despite the PC version of the syndrome these people seem prone to mood swings and bursts of anger if they are pushed too far outside their comfort zone.

What are your impressions of people with Aspergers am I being unfair or am I being truthful?

Are these people weirdos creepy and anlying?
You do realise that those two things describe humans in general?

I'd suggest you go out there are meet some people who are ASD. Actually, maybe it's best to start with some youtube videos and articles. And remember if you know one person who has ASD all you know about ASD is that you know one person with it.

Unless you are just trying to troll people who are ASD.

Did you read any of the thread?

I have ASD I just wanted to see how many people would agree with that post and I am glad to say not many.

Right, forget Aspergers I am autistic and I have to admit I got a laugh from that.

One thing I did notice Ricky uses his arms and hands a lot when he is talking

Are you surprised some of us have a sense of humour?

I love the TV series he did Derek.
