WHO - Mild autism - Formerly known as Aspergers to be renamed in 2013
Are people with Mild Autism worth employing?From my own experience on here - this forum - it is clear that the general public have little time for people with autism. Esme to clarify, as he seems party to the way people think on here.I can only speak for myself, but I have held down a job under quite stressful times - who else in here has worked in a steel mill, I have maintained pretty steady technical employment throughout. There have been blips but I am a fighter.My main downfall - is that I dont understand people, I dont know how to handle them socially - which the general populace seems to rely on fully. Especially for everyday morale.I see humour as quite literal. I work and live well with engineers (men). Women are too emotional for me. I get on best with Chinese women as they are technically adept. (I have lived with 3 Chinese women and a Chinese man at a point in my life)One thing I have done off my own back - is buy a house in Italy - I am in a large thriving village, close to a town with much commercialism. It serves me well. Although I have never let the property out, I have visited there with many friends. And alone a lot of times too.The one thing that shines out - is the friendliness of the Italian people - from all walks of life. I have been quite open with the people there - and I think they respect that. Not a British person with a holiday home that keeps their guard up. I think honesty is respectful. So I rest my case with the people on this forum - are people with Autism - worth it.
