    Default What jobs can borderline histrionic aspergerians do well at?

    My social worker said I have borderline traits, asperger's, and histrionic traits. He also says that I have ADHD. What jobs would be good for me?

    Maybe your social worker can help you there.

    I suggest that you don't resort to negative thinking, and that you consider careers that are related to subjects or skills you are best at and ideally that you find interesting.

    Probably psychologist and/or psychiatrist. You're already invested and motivated to learn.

    I've got no strings

    To hold me down
    To make me fret
    Or make me frown
    I had strings
    But now I'm free
    There are no strings on me

    Honestly, these are just labels. I would not let them define you. I see a lot of people online get really involved with these labels to the point of over-identification. I agree with SubT...Just find something you excel at and love

    this is stupid: a person with borderline and histrionic traits will, be definition,have impulse control issues. If that is already established, then it makes no sense to label you with ADHD. it would not even be unreasonable to cast doubt on the asperger's traits, as borderline and histrionic people have empathy issues just as well. Thee fuckers probably want to put as much labels on you as possible, so they can enter you in various programs, which is the most profitable to them.

    Dr. Sigmund Consentingadult recommends that you first work on gaining some psychological health before starting to think about a career. But if you must work, for the short term consider doing work you can do all alone (e.g. truck driver, pizza delivery), so social contacts do not trigger your borderline and histrionic traits all that much. This allows you to built some work routine and experience. Once you feel confident you have better control over your impulses, move on to the next stage with labor that involves more social interaction.

    You can do anything you put your mind to. None of those things lead to any road- but nor should they hold you back. Most successful people in the world are misfits/outcasts or previous "losers". Much of the stories I've learned from others are people that have faced a lot of heartache and pain/discrimination and stress from 'not fitting in' but then just blossomed out from that victim mentality and then controlled the world.

    Do what your passion is calling.

    So does any of these labels give you a reason why you ended up in your current situation?


    Diagnostics criteria are about putting checks in boxes. Those labels are used to to control money flow. Not much good comes out of it but potential help. IMO, it needs deeper interpretation which might be a huge waste of time. I'm sure that many professionals do not bother deeper depth of labels as many see themselves working in an assembly line.

    Instead of thinking what you are, think about why you are what you are and what you could potentially change. So change your focus.
