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 annoying?
Different strokes for different folks.
Of course they are going to seem weird to you because they do not conform to normal social interactions.
I only ever encounter one with the condition I know of. He told me the first time I ever saw him. Basically told me his whole life story and some stuff mainstream people would not.
He said he was on the mild side of it.
He is a highly intelligent fella with a PHD.
I knew nothing of the condition really but he explained it all to me.
That they become obsessed with a particular item or hobby.
They find the things mainstream people take for granted such as normal 'how's the weather conversation' difficult.
They seem really task driven and goal orientated so that will mean they are suited to certain types of jobs in particular.
As for them being annoying they are no more annoying then any other person to me.
I think the secret is that you have to accept that they have certain traits that they cannot help, but there are other aspects to them that are positive.
The same as anyone else really in that sense.
