Now, Jerry's a little different, isn't he? Yeah, he is. And nothing wrong with being different. It's not better, it's not worse, it's just different. It's fine to be different! In fact,we should be about the business of accepting people for who they are.
Okay, the book on Asperger's Syndrome is that the person is strong with technical skills and awkward with social skills. This a little bit reminds me of one of the Beatles producers who said that the book on the Beatles was that John Lennon was the lyric guy and Paul McCartney was the melody guy, except, except. . . there were plenty of examples of John writing excellent melodies and Paul writing excellent lyrics. So, the truth quickly becomes much more complicated.
I think it's closer to it to say that people with Asperger's have patchy social skills, excellent in some areas and sub-par on others. Well, every human being who has ever walked across the face of the Earth probably has had patchy social skills! But I think someone with Asperger's has skills more patchy than average.
