    Default Fancy Titles for extreme INTj and ISTj or ENTp and ESTp?

    Individuals with Asperger's Syndrome are truly an interesting population. Gifted individuals with Asperger's Syndrome are even more fascinating--and confusing. Children with this disability are sometimes described as "little professors who can't understand social cues." (Safran, 2001, p. 1) They are highly verbal, have obsessive interests in certain subjects, have exceptional memories, usually have above average IQ's, are hypersensitive to sensory stimuli and experience social isolation. (Neihart, 2000). Gifted individuals can manifest these behaviors as well. However, even though children with Asperger's Syndrome manifest behaviors that are very similar to gifted children, upon closer examination, the motivation for the behaviors is quite different. For example, both gifted children and children with Asperger's Syndrome are highly verbal. Both populations usually have extremely advanced vocabularies and love to talk about their interests. The difference is that children with Asperger's are very literal and have a difficult time with abstract thought. This is not the case with the gifted child. The child with Asperger's will memorize a vast number of facts and parrot them back. The gifted child on the other hand, understands the concepts behind the words.

    What a great replacement for a nany

    Sure, I'm gifted. Give me money, give me a place to stay and full scholarship.

    Take it away when I break your reality.
