Aspergers Syndrome is a disorder similiar to Autism. Persons with AS show marked deficiencies in social skills, have difficulties with transitions or changes and prefer sameness. They often have obsessive routines and may be preoccupied with a particular subject of interest. They have a great deal of difficulty reading nonverbal cues (body language) and very often the individual with AS has difficulty determining proper body space. Often overly sensitive to sounds, tastes, smells, and sights, the person with AS may prefer soft clothing, certain foods, and be bothered by sounds or lights no one else seems to hear or see

An individual with Aspergers syndrome is above average intelligence and appears to have normal social and communication and looks and talks normal as well.The only thing that is different about them is that they love star trek,star wars,star gate etc...
BUT some with aspergers aren't as gifted as the above.These symptoms include:
being terrified of their own shadow (basically everything)
severely impaired social functioning
EXTREME dependency (the same level as a five year old)
Mild,moderate to severe learning difficulties
Can't play sports because they are terrified of the ball or even the bat!
Severe anxiety issues
Very poor co-ordination
person A:"That kid is dumb as fuck! He's terrified of his own shadow and he didn't know what 5 add 5 was"
person B:"Shut up,he's got Aspergers"
person A:"I thought they were supposed to be geniuses?"

Actually, in response to the above, Asperger's is not a psychiatric disorder, but a neurological one. There is emerging evidence of genetic predispositions and exciting research confirming the lack of mirror neurons (look it up) in this kind of brain. Brain scans of those who express Asperger's traits confirm verifiable deviations from those of neuro-typical people. The neurological differences manifest as difficulty reading and interpreting facial expressions and other forms of non-verbal communication; physical clumsiness (also neurological) and sometimes neurological differences present as a rigid, linear cognitive style. People with Asperger's usually have above average to superior IQ scores and sometimes possess an extraordinary fund of knowledge about a particular subject. People with Asperger's often find success as engineers and computer programmers due to their preference and skill with mechanical things and relative weak social skills.

There is no known treatment for Asperger's disoder however the most common secondary symptoms/co-morbid conditions anxiety and depression can be successfully treated and controlled in most people.
James was bullied in school because he was different "geeky" an did not recognize the taunts of his cruel classmates, often in the form of dirty looks, laughing at and other non-verbal abuses. This led to a series of maladaptive coping behaviors including school avoidance, anxiety, and depression. James had a part time job at Apple's genius bar where he was able to work among others with similar strengths.

By learning about Asperger's, learning social pragmatics and working with professionals who knew how to explain James' cognitive style, James went on to win the Nobel prize in mathematics after a distinguished career at MIT. ,

A form of high functioning autism. While the disorder itself isn't fake, there are unfortunately a lot of fat internet losers out there who diagnose themselves with the disease in an effort to excuse their social ineptitude, sort of like the way ADHD is falsely diagnosed in bratty kids who just dont like paying attention in school. Actual sufferers of the disease will have some trouble functioning in social situations, but they won't go around yelling "SHUT UP IT'S ASPERGERS'S FAULT" every time you tell them that they're annoying and nobody likes them.
Sam has asperger's. He has trouble making eye contact, has trouble with motor skills, and shows some obsessive-compulsive behavior.

Danny is a fat social cripple who read on the internet that people with asperger's have trouble talking to others, and immediately diagnosed himself with it. He now uses it as an excuse for his inability to talk to girls.

Person 1: "Hey, do you want to come out tonight?"
Asperge 1: "No sorry, I'm an asperge. I'd rather go shoe shopping and play mass effect."

Person 2: "Asperge 2, why have you got your back to the wall?"
Asperge 2: "In case someone bottles me from behind."

Asperge 3: "Hurry up now guys, i want you to leave my house."
Person 3: "Why?"
Asperge 3: "I want you to leave so I don't have to be around you and socialise."

Asperge 4: "Look at that little boy, i'd love to put my cock in his mouth."

A term that can be used to describe yourself if you have Aspergers Syndrome. People with Autism say that they are Autistic, therefore, people with Aspergers can say that they are Aspergic.
Person X: Why are you being anti-social?

Person Y: I'm not being anti-social, I'm just ignoring you. And anyway, I'm Aspergic, what's your excuse for being anti-social?

A life-long disorder that affects the way the nervous system is set up, diagnoses ranging from borderline to severe. Oddities in people with Asperger's leads to problems socially. As the person inflicted gets older, they're more likely to control the more disabling features. You could think of it as the linking point between Autism and AD(H)D. More debilitating than AD(H)D, benign compared to Autism. Usually leads to or is co-morbid with other disorders.
But aspergers always comes with a serving of OCD and a side of Sensory Integration Dysfunction.
