Aspie's have trouble in social situations, as children
they are almost the brunt of jokes. They don't pick up on the little grins, winks or nudges that others do. They learn to be loners, cause people are actually on average very cruel. They have few friends on average, but if they do, they usually are very loyal to that friend, cause they know that friends are few and far between.
Many learn to distrust others based on prior experience.
If you watch Big Bang theory the whole cast could be considered Aspies, Sheldon of course the most severe. Like everything there are people that show the syndrome profoundly, and many that do not. The common Aspie has an IQ that is above average, but like everything that is not a hard and fast rule
, only point I'm making is that they are not less smart than average, just lack some skills that others have, but have better than average other skills.
They are also usually very conscious, picky people that like schedules and do not like surprises, they know how something is supposed to be done and do not deviate from a procedure. Those of you that say you religiously keep a log make me smile, cause you may not be an Aspie, but that is exactly what one would do.
They seek a structured environment
, and for example Military life suits them, because it is very structured, you always wear the exact same clothes, precisely the same way, never any variance.
They also tend to be very focused, are the type to want to perfect something to the nth degree.
