Aspergers and thinking

I have never been to a psychiatrist, so I am not sure if I have finally found the niche where I, as weird as I am, belong to.

Anyone here has problems thinking quietly? I tend to put my thoughts into words, and people think I am talking to myself or something.

I also tend to think in a daydream style, meaning I tend to imagine that people are listening to me talking, and they are replying to what I am saying, and these chains of thoughts help me figure things out. Manic Depressives seem to have this too.

Anyone knows what I mean?

Re: Aspergers and thinking

First of all don't worry about Aspergers or any type of Autism unless you also have severe social impairments. Manic depression is marked by periods of extreme excitement and hyperactivity (mania) and lulls of overwhelming or intense sadness and anhedonia. What you are doing is often referred to as an "internal dialogue" which can be very helpful for people who are predominantly verbal.

Some people help this in public by just moving their lips instead of talking out loud, but other than that you sound completely healthy!

Re: Aspergers and thinking

This does not seem like Asperger's to me . The only way to know for sure is to have yourself evaluated by a specialist who specifically deals with autistic spectrum disorders.

Re: Aspergers and thinking

Everybody has some sort of personality quirk.
In the old days, that's what they were considered: quirks.
And everybody has them.

The psychiatric community seems quick to slap a label on everyone these days, but to what purpose, really?
If you want a label, go to a psychologist and tell them what you've posted here, and I'm sure they'll be able to find one for you.
But will they be able to change your behavior or your thinking?
Probably not, and if they did, you wouldn't be you anymore.

As long as your "condition" isn't hurting anyone, and as long as you can function, I'd just leave it alone.

Good luck.
