I would have to agree with you.

When I don't feel like doing certain tasks, I can usually find an NT that will.

If you will excuse me, I have to go procrastinate about packing... Possibly the husband will beat me to finishing up packing before I get it done.


That sounds odd, I am HFA / PDD- NOS and yet I don't procrastinate, I get things done over time but not all at the last minute.

Man, that config screen thing is a great idea.

It'd be awesome!

I actually for a second wanted to post something, but then remembered a past obsession with ethics and thought that Kant might disagree with spreading it. :D

Let's just say that if NT-ness was contagious, I'd lock myself in an air-right room. :lol:

See? I failed to properly analyze and address the situation as per my NT-ness, and thus, I suffocated! :lol:

In a completely off topic tangent, doesn't the cellphone emoticon look like he's holding a beer?: :cellphone:

Yeah, you're right. He's talking way to much for someone hitting the sauce anyway.

You don't want to be cured because it's who you are, just as NTs wouldn't want autism because being NT is who they are.

I would not spread it.
Neurologically dodgy!

Yep!
a rather aspie way to be NT
so logical


As long as the system does not run on Windows we are fine. If it runs on windows we are doomed. Windows will blue screen when we have to do something critical. Mine will have to run on Mac OS X thank you very much!



I think most NT's are running windows which is why they are NT in the first place.....hmm loading auttheworld.exe, uploading, sending. lol
