Actually it's the other way around. Being detached or clumsy is what causes Asperger's, and in most cases, SPD develops into Aspergers, so be careful about what you choose to label yourself with while Personality Disorder shopping.

Have you looked into character flaws? They're much more clearly defined than PD's. Lot's to choose from. There's Arrogant Asshole Syndrome, Blithely Ignorant Twat Complex, Pompous Prick Disorder and Republican, just to name a few. Not saying you fall into any of these categories, but it's best to keep an open mind until you've determined exactly what's wrong with you, and once you do, don't forget to have it confirmed by strangers on the internet. Good luck!

i appreciate how you actually give me something else to look into while still satisfying your humor, helps both parties

Just look at the diagnostic criteria like I suggested. It's straight from the DSM.

This was the best thread in a long time.

Besides the suggestions for your consideration given by emillionth and naps, you might want to take yourself over to the AsPD forum and try out some of the things you've said here over there. They're an informed and informative group, and you might get some more things to think about.

By the way, if you're under 20 years old, you're too young to be considering a PD. Give yourself at least til then before you label yourself with something.

*Sigh Sorry shock I was out all day. Thanks for taking their sarcasm well. Guys c'mon. I know it's hard to consider feelings of others at times when you have none but let's refrain from name calling. I expected a self-regulating forum. I think we all know that's the sole reason I agreed to it.

*Wags finger half-heartedly*

And let that be a lesson to you all...or something like that. Don't make me pm every one of you, cuz literally none of us want that. :P

Believe me, that's what I've been doing so far. It's been taking all my fortitude.

I'm diagnosed with ASD myself, btw.
Is this now?

No worries @emillionth I didn't exactly feel your comment was the issue. ^.~

I think the forum members overall handled this situation pretty well.

We have a number here in the forum (a couple who've commented in this thread) and I can think of a few who went from thinking they were SPD to finding out they had Aspergers instead. Shock's comment summed it up. Since he has Aspergers and expressed some reasonable annoyance I felt others might not feel exactly comfortable or welcome if they thought it was ok to throw around insensitive language.

I agree though that the regulars of the forum didn't really do anything. I doubt many with ASD were terribly offended by anything in here, however, I didn't want to have anyone adding gas to op's fire either.

Side note: I was jokingly referring to pming everyone about not adding to the flames. I didn't mean that people aren't welcome to pm me.
