Asperger syndrome: not a disorder, a superpower!

+

The famous climate activist Greta Thunberg hits back at her detractors by defining her Asperger condition as a superpower. Indeed having Asperger comes with a wide range of abilities and strengths:

  • a capacity to see the world differently and therefore be creative and think outside of the box
  • a tendency towards solving problems rather than satisfy the social or emotional needs of others
  • a true honesty (meaning speaking their mind and being very direct)
  • great attention to detail and a capacity to perceive errors that are not apparent to others
  • a strong desire to seek knowledge, truth and perfection with a different set of priorities than others
  • a strong sense of social justice
  • a distinct sense of humour
