I think people focus on diagnosis too much. We are all different, the same like neurotypical people.
Some of us can be quite social and like being with people in situations that are well structured – like a training at work. Some of us like drawing attention to ourselves and tell jokes. I am personally aware of a female comedian who makes fun of her personality, which is basically all about autistic traits. I emailed her agent once to say I’m convinced the comedian is autistic and can she let the poor woman know.
I didn’t get a response. Possibly that comedian realised at some point, after having started her comedian career and she also realised if she reveals she’s autistic, people would not laugh any more.
BTW The Lady used to love that comedian. Isn’t it ironic at all?
