A form of autism believe it or not. Named after Hans Asperger.
Aspergers Syndrome can be mild or extreme. Its a gift and a curse at the same time.

Its known mostly for being a social issue. People with it can walk and talk like normal people but the ability to handle talking with people, dealing with people, understand social "cues" and even so much as going up and asking for a new cheeseburger in a restaurant if it is made wrong without feeling like a complete idiot and fearing what the people working there are thinking of them can and will be VERY hard. In other cases, so much as walking down the street is a problem for these people.

People with aspergers syndrome often have very small interests for example computers or radio or a certain TV show or music. Because of their lack of the ability to deal with people, people with this issue often stick to themselfs. Often in their rooms. They learn about their favorite subjects to the point of having encyclopedic knowldege of the subject. This is partially where the term "little professer" came from.

Aspergers Syndrome comes with a few additional problems. People with it often have strong OCD and deal with panic attacks.

Poeple with it have problems being touched. So much as being hugged or touched by their parents, family or anybody even close to them can be a very bad expirence for them.
grooming, wearing of socks, can be a problem.
bad posture is also a common problem with people with aspergers syndrome.
A mild form of autism is known as asperger's syndrome.

A physicall nerologicall disorder. The connections in the brain which allow social interaction to be instinctive are either damaged or not there . A person not on the autistic spectrum finds this concept vey hard to get to grips with because social interaction is completly instinctive from birth. Aspies have to learn this like a life skill so it is not in thier nature. Abnormalities have been spotted in the brains of autistic / aspie people during brain scans.To say the condition doesnt exist entierly does not stick. People who use this conditon like some "medal of honor" or "I am the chosen one"rubbish .Highly likely dont have the disorder since many people with the condition do not fling it around like a trophy. The condition appears to have become a "fashion accessory" over the past few years to explaine away poor behavyor. The lable dislexia is also abused in this way.
One key element is that on MRI images has shown that the Aspergers syndrome /autistic brain has to work harder processing faces,body language,large amount of information ,verbal information ect. Which the avaerage person will not even fret about. This can cause the aspie/autie to appear slow and dim.Sometimes the information is processed incorrectly and results in an incorrect/
inappropriate response.

A very real neurological disorder, related to autism, that has been overdiagnosed to the point where genuine cases of it are no longer taken seriously.
I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome in 1993, back when hardly anyone had heard of it. Nobody has any right to say that something with which I have dealt all my life is not real.

A terrible, debilitating social and psychological disorder. Symptoms tend to include high intelligence, saying what you mean, being straightforward and realizing that the majority of social interactions are bullshit. Contrary to popular belief, the disorder does not inhibit ability to have feelings or cause an inability to empathize or have friends. There is no cure for Asperger's syndrome, and sufferers are burdened by having to put up with people's patronizing small talk for their whole lives. People with Asperger's are actually the normal ones, it's just that most people are melodramatic morons who insist on overthinking everything and pretending that they're being subtle.
Neurotypical person 1:how are you feeling today?
Neurotypical person 2: Fine (trying to indicate that they feel like shit).
Asperger's Syndrome "sufferer": Fine (indicating that they feel fine WHICH IS WHY THEY FUCKING SAID FINE)

A rare and debilitating condition where the person suffering from it realises that there is more to life than constant, non stop meaningless mind numbing socialisation and will often find interest and obsession in more intriguing and fascinating things and do things that actually matter.

Horrifying!
The world needs more people with Asperger's Syndrome

Asperger's Syndrome is at this time an incurable condition, which occurs mainly in males, although females can inheret this disorder. Asperger's is on the ASD (Autistic Spectrum disorder). It is therefore linked With Autism. Those who suffer with autism, are on the higher end of the autistic Spectrum, whereas those with Asperger's tend to be on the milder end of the scale. The main difficulty people find with having Asperger's is social interaction with others. Asperger's cannot be defined by one set of Characteristics, because those with AS, don't have exactly the same difficulties that another individual with Asperger's may have.

Common characteristics those with Asperger's tend to display are... difficulties with eye contact, difficulty empathizing with others, Obsessive Complusive Behaviour and feeling uncomfortable standing out from the crowd. There are many more symptoms which can be part of this condition.

Other Terminology used for Asperger's Syndrome are: AS. Aspie, Asperger's, Autism, mild autism, Asperger's Disorder.

There are often misconceptions about Asperger's and Autism. Some people who are narrow minded, describe autism/AS as a "teenage phase" or an "excuse for being a loner" However these descriptions are inaccurate. Asperger's was discovered by Hans Asperger, a psychiatric doctor in 1944. This condition is not an excuse for having difficulty with social development. It is a real disorder, which affects individuals more than the Neurotypical person will know.
OK, so what is Asperger's Syndrome?
It is a disoder that can affect the AS individuals in different ways, dependant upon their specific diagnosis; mild to severe. A usual difficulty those with AS find is social interaction.

Reading many of the definitions on here,there seems to be a lot of confusion about the condition.
A mental disorder affects your day to day abilities,thoughts,feelings,perception and basically everything.If someone is diagnosed with aspergers just because they are a bit eccentric,but can function exactly the same as anyone else,then maybe they shouldn't be classed as having a real disorder.I can tell you,i've met LOADS with aspergers that have no difficulties with mixing,understanding or anything.In fact maybe they just have insomnia or are hyper or like starwars!
Out of the 15 i met,only 1 was genuinely handicapped and the other 1 had intellectual issues,so basically,they were only 2 that had limitations.The rest just didn't like the tags on their clothing or something that didn't affect their life,yet me,who has severe anxiety,limitations,learning difficulties,day to day functioning issues e.g. shopping,catching the bus,cooking,speaking to people i don't know,everything like that really badly!-got left,yet all the ones who just were funny about clothing got 100 times more support than i did,so either aspergers is too minor for me to have with my scrambled brain (believe it or not,i have noticeable limitations to what i can do.I mean,i can do about as much as a 7 year old and i'm 16!) or aspergers is diagnosed to just anybody with a weird quirk?
aspergers syndrome is real,but bear in mind,a mental disorder disables you!
