- I know a decent number of Aspies - kinda hard not to in the Bay Area Tech scene. I have a strong Blink (immediate-gut) reaction to a lot of the traits, though it's not as reliable as my Gaydar.
- I was (unsuccessfully) married to an Aspie.
- My mother is a clinical psychologist so I've got a historic familiarity with psych and tend to be extremely irreverent about it all. No offense intended.
- I myself am kinda the OPPOSITE, or so it appears. I get like a 4 on the AS quotient test, and I'm frighteningly comfortable in crowds and random social situations.

Details and I are interesting. I'm _aware_ of them, sometimes even _very aware_ of them. Occasionally I hyperfocus on some detail and wind up wasting time on these little variations 99% of the population wouldn't even NOTICE, though usually such things are indicative of not having taken any vitamins for a week. Usually, though, I don't care about _perfection_ in details, I'm very pragmatic and utilitarian overall. I make fast decisions about what is "Important" to a final product and what is not, and I'll geek out about details that I consider key to the picture I'm painting. So you won't see me with big serial collections for the most part, but then you might stumble on five different interpretations of a certain opera, plus the stories it was derived from and some of the major things it went on to influence - the details collect to support the story. I usually see that run kind of backwards in Aspies, where the details come first and the story is derived from them, or the code needs to be elegant and beautiful first and then we'll go find a commercial application for it. Does that make sense to you?
