Let me know what you find out. I'm curious about it also.

You're not defective. Everyone in the world is different from other people in their own ways. A lot of us are just more sensitive to sensory stimulation, nothing to feel defective about. And about the AS, the more reading I'm doing the more I'm seeing that it's not a defective thing either. It's just that your brain is stronger in certain things and weaker in others than most people. Do you agree that everyone has their strengths and weaknesses? That's how I've started looking at it.

For curiosity's sake, take these two tests:
Empathy Quotient - http://www.guardian.co.uk/life/flash/page/0,13249,937836,00.html
Systemizing Quotient - http://www.guardian.co.uk/life/flash/page/0,13249,937835,00.html

I'm curious to see if you are as extreme as I am on those two tests. :-P (I'm the lowest bracket on the EQ and the highest bracket on the SQ)
