Change is considered to be an important aspect of life. Every single person goes through some change or another.
A change of environment; change of friends; change of priorities; change of interests; and many more such things.
Some people love the change, some don’t. And some, literally resist it.
People will tell you, “Resisting Change is Resisting Life“.
But what if someone isn’t capable of adapting to change? Should you push that individual and destroy what he is?
Some people resist change because they are stubborn and want the things to be just the way they want. Some resist it because they are biologically incapable of adapting to change.
The Asperger Syndrome.
Asperger syndrome is a form of autism. People with Asperger syndrome find difficulty in social relationships, communication and adapting to changes, among other things.
People with Asperger’s attempt to control their environment typically by clinging to well-defined routines and minimizing spontaneous alterations in their surroundings.
Change isn’t too friendly for people with Asperger’s.
A defined set of bed sheets; a particular side of bed to sleep on; a set place for everything in the room and office; a handful of social acquaintances; a specific way to do things; these are few of the many eccentricities of people with Asperger’s.
Asperger’s is a milder Autism Spectrum Disorder.
To some extent, there is an overlap between Asperger’s and High-Functioning Autism (Autism without intellectual disability).
People with Asperger syndrome can display behavior, interests, and activities that are restricted and repetitive and are sometimes abnormally intense or focused. They may stick to inflexible routines, move in steretyped and repetitive ways, preoccupy themselves with parts of objects, or engage in compulsive behaviors like lining objects up to form patterns.
Individuals with Asperger syndrome may have signs or symptoms that are independent of the diagnosis, but can affect the individual or the family. These include differences in perception and problems with motor skills, sleep, and emotions.
And Asperger’s isn’t something that stands out. People with Asperger’s have good language and cognitive skills.
People with Asperger’s syndrome may have high intelligence and better than average skills. Asperger’s is considered a high–functioning form of autism.
P.S. Lower, as well as Higher Intelligence can both be a result of a disorder. So can be the inability to adapt to change and process emotions.
