Asperger's syndrome and interpersonal relationships

in Proof of Brain5 months ago

The difficulty in responding socially through empathy has a significant impact on the social life of any person with Asperger's syndrome, which is nothing more than another name given to autism.

What is Asperger's Syndrome?

It is a neurobiological disorder that affects communication and social interaction of people, this disorder totally changes the way the person perceives the world and other people around.


People who have "asperger", have great difficulty in communication and sensitivity, being characterized by difficulties in social interaction, with repetitive behavior, restriction of activities and interests, as they have an obsessive interest in a particular subject or object, but without delays in language development, the presence of difficulties with social communication is more common.

The signs usually begin to manifest before the age of two and in most cases accompany the person throughout their lives. It is more common in male than female children, and it is worth mentioning that Asperger's Syndrome is not related to factors such as childhood abuse and emotional deprivation.

It is important to remember that the syndrome has no cure, but it is not a disease, it affects even more the social life and the sooner the diagnosis is made, the better the chance of the child to adapt to the social life.

According to studies, people with Asperger's Syndrome have average or above average intelligence. And, they generally do not have learning disabilities that many autistic people do, but they may have specific learning disabilities. They have fewer problems with speech, but may still have difficulties in understanding and processing the language.

People with Asperger's Syndrome see the world in a different way, but they do not look “disabled”, most of the time they are just misunderstood, poetry talks only about things they are interested in, even if others do not like these subjects, often they are bullied.

Intelligence that draws attention, in fact, some have intellectual skills that draw attention, but their biggest challenge is coexistence.

Famous people with Asperger's Syndrome have a functional life and, above all, very happy.

  • Bill Gates
  • Vincent Van Gogh
  • Albert Einstein
  • Isaac Newton
  • Nikola Tesla
  • Steven Spielberg
  • Tim Burton
  • Woody Allen
  • Keanu Reeves
  • Lionel Messi
  • Michael Phelps
  • Ludwig Van Beethoven


And now Elon Musk reveals that he also has this syndrome.

The Asperger's brain is 10 times more adept at processing what it sees ... while the normal brain is 10 times more adept at processing what it hears. People with Asperger's have no problem thinking about how things work, but they have great difficulty understanding how people work and are unaware of the feelings of others.

Thanks for stopping by and reading my post. ❧

I feel like I have Asperger's, I say I feel because I'm not diagnosed. A college assignment I did yesterday addressed the Aspies theme, and I have been feeling the symptoms ever since, but I only got to know and identify the Asperger issue about 2 years ago, and I noticed that I probably have it, mainly due to my difficulty understanding ironies and sarcasms at the same speed as neurotypes.

Eu também nunca compreendo as ironias e os sarcasmos, e se as pessoas queiram que eu entenda precisam falar.. fico pensando será que eu também tenho Asperger ? Mas esse é um assunto muito complexo.

Não sabia q era br haha, então 1 a cada 100 pessoas tem Asperger, é mais comum do que imaginamos. Se tiver oportunidade veja se você também possui.

It is a very particular syndrome since thanks to it we have had great advances in many areas of life, and to think how much knowledge we lost in the past in the classroom when we did not know how to deal with children who presented these traits!

It is true, I saw reports that teachers expelled students from the classroom because of this syndrome, because I did not understand the student's feelings.

I would add here Greta Thunberg who also has Asperger's Syndrome.
