A real-life mental disorder, related to autism, that only about 2-3% of people claiming to have it have actually been professionally diagnosed by a psychologist.

Sometimes known as "Ass Burgers". Sufferers (emphasis on sufferers) are sometimes calles Aspies or "ass pies".
Here's a protip: People with mental disorders usually don't brag about it like it's a badge of honor, especially a form of autism. It's always worth a good laugh to see every awkward, socially-inept, angsty teenager who has ever gotten beat up by the "jocks" in school claim to have Asperger's Syndrome to justify being an utter loser.

A form of higher functioning autism. Generally, victims or of average to above average intelligence, most notably being both creative and extremely gifted in subjects which require logical thought such as mathematics. While academically Asperger's Syndrome sufferers excel, their development of social skills is limited. Generally, a victim will lack the words to say something, the inclination to say something or the guts to say what they feel, often too nervous or intimidated to enter conversation. In addition, they despise eye contact, dislike being hugged and value their personal space. Some may have seemingly odd habits such as flapping their hands, but not all. Also, narrow and somewhat peculiar hobbies are common. Those with AS tend to have an extremely active or extremely passive lifestyle, lack of self esteem, problems sleeping, generaly use very informal, complex language during conversation and, unlike loners, actually wish to fit in.
Bill Gates has Asperger's Syndrome, and there is believed to be a strong possibility that Sir Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein also had this form of autism.

While trying to be modest, I do have above average intelligence, excelling in logical thinking subjects such as mathematics and philosophy. Whenever I want to say something I never know the way how, just shutting up and listening to the rest of the conversation. I try to avoid eye contact, often viewing it as a sign of impoliteness for me to make eye contact with someone walking by, dislike being hugged and apparently (according to old school reports, not my memory) attacked other children who invaded my space at the age of 5. I do not have any odd habits, but odd hobbies such as breakdancing and drawing anime art. I have an extremely passive lifestyle (in laymen's terms, im a lazy sod), low confidence, sleeping problems, use large polysyllabic words in general conversation and, like an Asperger's Syndrome sufferer, wish to fit in. I probably have Asperger's.

Asperger's syndrome is a disease that is a mild variant of autism. "Aspies" tend to have the same social, organizational, and sensory difficulties as other autistic individuals, but their intelligence, communication and developmental abilities are not as affected by their disease as their peers. They also may exibit the same symptoms as their peers with ADD or ADHD (concentration, tendency to create errors due to speed, etc). Many adults that were simply "daydreamers" are now believed or known to be diagnosed with this disease. Many are NOT emotionally disturbed and may go on to lead sucessful (college, job, family, independant) lives.
Some of the greatest human minds are believed to be autistic; Albert Einstien and Thomas Edison are among them. Asperger's syndrome also affects the lives of many non-famous people.

A state of mental existence often misdiagnosed as a disorder. Though this is probably to be expected, as people who do not benefit from Asperger's were the ones who decided to call it one. Asperger's is a form of high-functioning autism that has effects such as the ability to focus intently and a level of logical thinking that almost rivals computers. Asperger's people also have a lower tendency to care about social interactions and graces, which is likely why neurotypicals (normal folks, often abbreviated NT) consider them disabled.
Asperger's is no more a disorder than sleep is. If anything, the mind of an Asperger's individual is more organized than a normal person's.

A commonly undiagnosed disorder in which a subject must go through life trapped in an emotional minefield of their own creation. Too many disasterous mistakes resulting from the subject's attempts to interact with the landscape surrounding them will usually result in a severely decreased will to act at all in any obviously expressable manner in particular, sometimes manifested as cold social apathy. Within this socially crippled state, the mind seems to mysteriously compensate by responding with a defense mechanism of intensely attuned perceptive sensitivity and analytical prowess which borders on obsessiveness. Because of this, subjects may often be viewed as highly irritable, insanely complex, or at times annoyingly condescending and arrogant.
You feel trapped in the endless frustration of existing in an environment which is unable to comprehend your inability to understand the inexplicable mystery behind what moves them on a seemingly basic level

1. Asperger's Syndrome is a real mental/communication syndrome
2. People with Asperger's Syndrome are known as aspies, but there are fake "aspies" who claim to have the syndrome.
3. Authentic aspies will most likely never, ever out loud claim to be an aspie and claim it with pride, in fact real aspies tend to be a bit ashamed or very shy of their disorder.
4. Fake aspies wear their often times self-diagnosed Asperger's syndrome with pride
5. Authentic aspies will do what they do best rather than mess with people and use their Asperger's as a crutch, that is also the whole point of the disorder, you excel at one subject whereas you lack at social skills.
6. Fake aspies will often bother people about their "disorder."
7. Authentic aspies will, despite lacking in social skills, try and make an effort to get along with people outside their comfort zone while fakes will hate people who aren't like them.
(example) Todd and Ricardo are two boys who actually have Asperger's syndrome, Kyle is a fake aspie who is actually just another annoying emo kid.

Todd- Hey, Ricardo, I'm going to pwn you in C&C 3: Tiberium Wars again!
Ricardo- They hell you will, I just realized that the Scrin aren't as good as EA games wants us to think, I'm going to play as Nod for now on!
Todd- GDI will still kick your ass, besides, in the whole C&C story, GDI was the victor in the First Tiberium War, Second and will be in the third! Oh yea, we have a cooler superweapon...THE ION CANNON!
-Kyle comes in wearing overpriced Hot Topic crap-
Kyle- Those football players tackled me into the wall and took my Chinese (made in China) magical charms.
Ricardo- dude, maybe you shouldn't have said all that shit to them earlier today, I saw you talk crap to the linebacker.
Kyle- Let's put a stinkbomb into the locker room!
Todd- Let's not, I have a really good friend who's the Quarterback of the school's team! He's my dueling buddy on C&C Generals too!
Richardo- Hey, let's play C&C Generals instead! I call US Laser General "Pinpoint and Chinese Infantry General "Anvil" Shin Fai
Todd- I call Dr. Thrax and Chinese Nuke General Tsing Shi Tao!
Kyle- Man, screw you fake aspies!

A syndrome which as it's causes and ouputs questioned by many if it is a syndrome not too that those people know nothing of psychology and medicine.

It is a fact that all asperger's miss a certain type of protein in their blood so it can't be a subjective matter, it is indeed caused by the 'disfunction' of something.

Of course you have all kinds of asperger's even some that can function in a normal invironment and claim the decease is not understood and that they are misintepreted and wronged. Erm well.. 50 years ago I wouldn't have been an asperger, my reluctance to make eyecontact or my agression towards people that don't use SI units would have just been beaten out of me, and because that wouldn't work I would've been marked as stubborn. Now I'm getting extra (money costing) help by the goverment to guide me in my life so shut the frogpie up that asperger's isn't understoot, that's nonsense. Of course on the other hand you have the people that fail too see that it is in fact a disorder caused by a genetic imperfection that alters the way the mind of the specimen works.

It is not the case that it are character traits everyone has, that's how it would apear to someone unfamilair with psychology, asperger's have totally different motivations. For instance some won't like being touched, not because they don't like the person but because they are oversensity to stimulus and a shock goes through their entire body when they are touched, others will defend themselves when they are neared in a way that would seem as if they don't like the person nearing them while really the see it as if the person is trying to attack them.
As early as 2 years old they noticed I couldn't make normal contact, at 4 year old it was shown that my intellect was unusually high, at 6 years old I was heavely depressed at school and frustrated and affraid of the children around me without realising that myself. At 8 years old I was put into and institute which labled me an asperger's syndromer, now, seventeen years old with antipsychotics medication I can to somewhat of an extend have friendships although they aren't really healthy because I'm always paranoid about the intentions of my friends though I try to ignore that. Eventually I'll study physics.

(Really happened)
