At the very least *3* television crime shows have a cast member who
would appear to be scuffing from the medical malaise known as
Temperance Brennan in *BONES*
Jerry Espenson in *BOSTON LEGAL*
Adrian Monk in *MONK*
We have come to think of it Dysfunctional Behavior the next
I know people with Asperger's. Temp and Adrian don't have it. Never
saw the guy in Boston Legel. People with Asperger's are usually much
more handicapped and odd, it is a form of Autism.
The contestant on The Amazing Race who has Asperger's seemed very high
functioning. His main issue, he said, was that he was forced out of
his normal, comfortable and presumably regimental routine. He got
exasperated and impatient during a couple of challenges, but no more
so than other contestants.
I know at least one very bright Asperger's kid. Very bright--but socially VERY un-adept. To put it mildly. There are plenty of gifted kids "on the spectrum," as they say.
This guy's main "shortcoming" -- and I'm not sure I'd characterize it that way, but his friend/fellow contestant did -- was that he said whatever came into his mind. Absolutely no filters. He was smart, witty, amicable and (possibly to his own surprise) undaunted by the strange places he ended up, including Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia and Dubai.
