Writing. All of my teachers and stuff tell me I'll make it far in writing, which is what I hope.

Since I'm only 14, and they're saying that I'm already at the level of an average, if not advanced, adult, I think I'll make it.

So yeah, that means that writing's definitely my speciality. I'm also fairly good at acting.

- Archmagi Micael

Just out of curiosity (okay, I might possibly have a malevolent motive), what are you good at writing? Poetry, short stories, entire novels? Or science fiction, or possibly horror? Just being able to "write well" isn't very descriptive.

I am not good at anything, but am on the verge of being good at everything. I give the impression that, with a bit of work, I could excel at whatever I put my mind to. Sadly, it's a false impression.

I have three main talents.

One - Lying. I don't do it, unless I have to, but nonetheless, I am good at it.

Two - Incomprehensible babble.

Three - Breathing. It's not a hobby, it's an Olympic Sport. :P

I'm very good at stalking up and catching flies when they annoy me. I also seem to be able to write moderately well, but my best talent is eating cake :D :D .

I have pretty much no talents.
I can take a beating ( eg have the crap kicked out of me and barely notice / finish what I'm doing before I respond), but that's not something special, I'm just stupid.

Also I've been going out with Phoebe for a year so I must have done something special to make her like me and stay with me for so long.

If you have high intelligence, you have following:

-Easy to learn.
-Easy to understand.
-Easy to figure out things.

And I belive I do those three points well. I wanted to add "-Easy to notice hidden messages" but since I am the kind of man who blabber on... *Add irony here*

Refer to my earlier post. Subtlety is a large part of intelligence, and that does not appear to be part of your dictionary. ;)

This is somewhat simplistic. Highly intelligent people who suffer autism, scotopic sensitivity syndrome, dyslexia or ADHD can't easily perceive information.

My only talent is perfectionism.

Oww... I do have Autism but I do not suffer from it, anymore. Actually I took advantage to it in order to get my appartment. :D

What is so fantastic about talent? I've been gifted with a typical human shape, outfitted in the regular fashion, no extra accessories, limited display of common sense, and no discernable talent.
I wish I could join the fly crowd, but I know my limits.
I could join Alo in the sniping, but my targeting system is still off. Practice, practice, bullseye.
I'll just be content, like many folks, to remain essentially nonessential.

I have a mild form called "Asperger's syndrome". I can get along with normal people but I appear as slightly or very odd. Anyway, I do not really suffer from the many sad mental effects it has but it still makes me odd...

Asperger's is a pretty heavily overdiagnosed condition that can be used to refer to a whole range of different behaviours that some psychologist judges as being pathological. Now, I don't want to come across as sounding like some kind of raving Thomas Szasz fanboy, but he makes a fair point when he says that mental illness can't be used as an excuse to escape responsibility for one's actions; regardless of the causes of a behaviour, it still affects others in the same way.

Interesting. I have Asperger's as well. Here's the Wikipedia article:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asperger_Syndrome
I fit almost every one of the characteristics in that article, actually, and I don't mean just generally close to them.
I have only one remotely close friend in real life. Most of my friendships are online-only relationships.
It's really not fun to live with, and I take offense to Thuryl's statement.

A set of personality traits still isn't a mental disorder.

It's not just a set of goddamn personality traits, and I would appreciate it if you'd shut the hell up. You have no idea how painful it is to live with this thing! I've been diagnosed with it by several different psychologists. It's not just my mind playing tricks on me, and I find the implication that it is to be incredibly demeaning.

While it may be convenient to categorize people, either positively or negatively, it also serves to dehumanize them. ADoS is himself, and no one else is like him. And I forgive him for living in Reveah, as he probably didn't make that choice.
So I understood Thuryl's comment to mean that there is a societal rush to place people in categories which, while making things nice and tidy, doesn't actually serve to make that individuals life any better. I could go on and on about how inappropriate it is to pigeon-hole people and treat them according to only one part of their whole being, but I won't, cuz I don't even know myself well enough to do that.
