Maybe it’s a case of just being brutally honest with you when your new haircut looks ridiculous. But the honesty that the PERSON ON THE SPECTRUM possesses is refreshing. In this pretend world of political correctness, contrived so-called “reality television,” and unrestrained commercialism that we all live with on a daily basis, it’s really cool to have someone just tell it like it is every now and then.
For example, one Aspergers employee helped engineer the dependent relations between hundreds of different components of a software system. The problem was that, not only did it require a huge amount of focus, but a huge amount of focus over a long period of time, because every detail that was changed in the system caused hundreds of other small changes in the ways all the other components of the system depended on one another. This "Aspie" accomplished in a few days what the company expected to take several months.

So I can be doing something which would, ordinarily would not be related to the problem I am working on but I get one of those eureka moments. I think in 3D and can construct things in my head and then build it. I often change things as I go but i have a head start simply because of how I think.
