I just read up a bit on Asperger's Syndrome, and one of the symptoms is a persistent interest in certain topics like say, mathematics!!

Visit my website http://www.geocities.com/asperger_sg and try out the diagnostic tests and see if you have AS!

Good collection, wcy.

But what's in a name? We are all a collection of skills: social, intellectual, physical. Perhaps there should be a syndrome for people who are excessively social, and lacking intellectual focus?

In the Wikipedia it is called a "A gift and a curse", what are your feelings about it?

The world is full of normal people, why not be exceptional?

And don't believe people when they say how you should be ... *you* are in charge of how you are.
