It’s always easy to focus on the negatives of any situation. When it comes to Asperger’s Syndrome, like everything else, we often forget about the positive aspects of being an “Aspie,” as YouTube user TheAnMish calls people with this disorder.
However, there are a lot of positive aspects to having a brain that works a little bit differently, not the least of which is the ability to hyper-focus on a particular issue and solve it faster and in a different way than a neurotypical brain would have been able to do.
