The Eight Asperger Advantages

1. Focus Your ability to focus on one objective over long periods of time without becoming distracted allows you to accomplish large and challenging tasks.
2. Unique Global Insights Your ability to find novel connections among multi-disciplinary facts and ideas allows you to create new, coherent, and meaningful insights that others would not have reached without you.
3. Independent Thinking Your willingness to consider unpopular or unusual possibilities generates new options and opportunities and can pave the way for others.
4. Internal Motivation Rather than being swayed by social convention, other's opinions, social pressure or fears, you can hold firm to your own purpose. Your unique ideas can thrive, despite naysayers.
5. Attention To Detail Your ability to remember and process minute details without getting lost or overwhelmed gives you a distinct advantage when solving complex problems.
6. 3-Dimensional Thinking Your ability to utilize 3-dimensional visioning gives you a unique perspective when designing and creating solutions.
7. Cutting Through The Smoke Screen Your ability to recognize and speak the truth that is being "conveniently" ignored by others can be vital to the success of a project or endeavor.
8. Logical Decision Making Your ability to make logical and rational decisions and stick to your course of action without being swayed by impulse or emotional reactions allows you to navigate successfully through difficult situations without being pulled off-course.

These traits can be used to develop invaluable leadership and entrepreneurial skills. People with autism are among the most forthright, non-judgmental, passionate people you'll ever meet.
