Comment Re:Not surprising at all (Score 1) 483

My younger sister (not a geek or a nerd or any such) was a Speech and Hearing Major in college. In this capacity, she worked a lot with autistic children. I remember one time when the family was together and she was talking about the aspects of autism, both positive and negative, like trouble with empathy and facility with language -- punning and suchlike -- and I found myself thinking, "My God, that sounds like me, only worse!"

It was at that point that I started suspecting that many of my social difficulties result from what might be a very mild form of autism. It's always nice to see those little "gee, what if..." moments reflected in massive academic tomes.
