One thing I've noticed here on ATS, if you're a Trump supporter, many will make excuses for him and ignore his blatant narcissistic behavior. Even to an untrained eye, Trump doesn't hide his egotistical behavior. I personally think Trump's narcissistic behavior and his poor temperament is dangerous for diplomacy and world peace. In fact, I agree with some of the issues he's put forth like having term limits for members of congress and keeping an open dialog with Russia. However, his poor childish temperament over shadows my comfort level when it comes to negotiating with other countries on the world stage. It's a basic fact in everyday life, if you can't control your temper, you won't have many friends and you'll just cause more conflicts. Nobody likes a bully or someone who thinks they're always right.

I have more respect for Trump supporters who admit this guy has character issues, is a habitual liar and acts like an A-hole, but they're supporting him because they want to shake up Washington! Before getting upset because I'm attacking Trump, this post is about him and not about Clinton, but that doesn't say she doesn't have her own character and scandalous issues!

It's dangerous when voters ignore factual flaws in their candidate's character and their questionable past activities. By doing so, we're acting just like the politicians in Washington and ignoring the 800 lb. gorilla in the room. We need to hold our representatives and candidates running for political office accountable for their behavior because in the end it affects all of us.

He doesn't show any ASD traits - just seems run of the mill spoilt brat/power mad capitalist who'll # on anyone to get ahead in life for either power or fiancial gain.

It's typical stock broker/ventur capitalist mentality - just 'allegedly' without the coc aine habit.

If he has Aspergers, then that would explain why he makes so many social mistakes.


I've Aspergers he doesn't...

Come on social mistakes ... based on what ? The stuff you hear from the Criminal media ? I don't know trump YOU don't know trump we only know what the media wants us to know. So there is way to little information to make a diagnosis... Then again we are no doctors arent we....

*Doesn't pick up on social cues and may lack inborn social skills, such as being able to read others' body language, start or maintain a conversation, and take turns talking.

*Dislike any changes in routines.

*Appear to lack empathy.

*Taking sarcastic comments literally. Speech may be flat and hard to understand because it lacks tone, pitch, and accent.

*Having a formal style of speaking

*Talk a lot, usually about a favorite subject. One-sided conversations are common. Internal thoughts are often verbalized.

*Avoid eye contact or stare at others.

*Have unusual facial expressions or postures.

*Be preoccupied with only one or few interests, which he or she may be very knowledgeable about.

You don't have to be a doctor to realize this guy has some kind of personality disorder. When doctors and the general public can use documented symptoms to diagnose if someone has a particular illness, the same goes for personality and mental disorders. Trump's daily display of his character fits him as having a narcissistic personality disorder to the tee.

SNIP


I worked for UK natinal autistic society for several years and specialise in teaching ASD/EBD children - trump shows none of their traits - main tell being he's a habitiual liar and manipulator - which people with ASD are incapable of as they lack the awareness. Ask someone with ASD a question and they'll give you and answer, while Trump goes on off topic rants or twists it and blames it on the media or hillary, mexicans etc.... that isn't autistic behaviour - it's being an arsehole with no manners.

He seems to be more narcasistic/borderline personality disorder

Fixed that for you.

I don't actually think he has autism.

The OP is clever in it's premise, especially with the 156 IQ.

But this is clearly trolling.

He has some melted wiring up top, but it isn't Asperger's Disease. Those folks trend engineering, understand science and math well and over-focus...Trump has generalized ADD, narcissistic personality disorder and a good dose of sociopathic tendency....and a slightly above average IQ...no idea where you got 157???? I'd peg him at closer to 110.

I dunno if I'd say he has ADD. One of my kids is ADD.

I've read that when Trump is by himself, he's quiet.

He seems to "turn on" for an audience.

Yah...ADD is a little of catch-all and unnecessarily negative connotation. Flighty, creative, easily interested and engaged in one's surroundings and other people, the ability to find many things innately interesting..

ADD was a bad choice of words there..ADD isn't well defined IMO.

I'd say yes..he turns on with attention and an audience...craves it...plus impulse control issues. His advisors term it "complete lack of message discipline"...he can't stick and hammer on a message and still goes off course with tele-prompters...and he can't resist going ballistic when challenged or snubbed, even if it is a Gold Star family or Miss Universe.

Impulse control driving him off message..Maybe that's tied to craving reactions from the crowd..He almost seems bored with himself when he sticks to the tele-prompter.

Narcissist for sure.

Definition: Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for admiration and a lack of empathy for others. But behind this mask of ultraconfidence lies a fragile self-esteem that's vulnerable to the slightest criticism.

its pretty telling that when Americans come across someone that speaks with their balls that they automatically jump to autism.

Trump is just a jerk.


Trump is no more than a Jerk than your everyday person walking down the street, Honestly. Is Trump a perfect person, No. He has the same issues and problems any other human may have. It's just he is in the public eye, so people will nick pick on anything he may have ever said his entire life.

I would rather be a jerk than a corrupted public official putting people's lives in danger and causing tons of issues for United States.

Trump needs to be President to bring the change we need. Otherwise the corrupted Elite will continue to run this country and its people into the ground.

To the OP. I honestly don't know. I guess he could. But while there are so many people checking out the thread, I'd like to add a few queries.

Is Hillary Clinton perpetually on the rag and drugged up on painkillers?
Is Barrack Obama actually a gay man married to a transvestite?
Does Pelosi truly eat baby children using no more than a blender and a spoon?
Has Harry Reid finally been sucked up his own butt hole?

I mean...inquiring minds...right?

Trump is autistic, he draws very well. He might have Asperger's, I hear he doesn't wipe very well.

Trump's IQ is 156


No idea if Trump has autism or not, but the above figure is complete #ing nonsense and has been debuncked...

He's a complete moron and you can base that on his extremely limit vocabulary...

Seriously? I'm sorry but you just insulted people with actual Aspergers.

He is just a narcissist! He has an ego as big as the planet. So he has money? It doesn't make him special and his IQ means squat. Intelligence cant be measured in numbers.

He seems very sociably awkward.

I tried to compare him to a loved one I know who is identical to him one time on here and the post was deleted bc of thread drift.

The only difference they have really is money and she voted for Hillary but other than that, very similar personality.

This loved one has unknowingly made my life very difficult, maybe even knowingly at times. I stay at an arms distance from her bc she is dangerous, very dangerous. So much psychologically going on here, its interesting bc of all of the issues, but very sad bc its someone I love and I am the one who is hurt. I ache for closeness with this person but have come to terms that being far apart from her is the only way I can have any sort of relationship.

Now I am not close to or have feelings of love for Trump, so he cannot hurt me as this loved one has/is doing but he is in charge of the country, so I can imagine a whole other slew of issues, bigger issues than myself that could go wrong.

Does anyone deny his narcissistic behavior everyone has seen it for years on TV. Its more likely they saw it so often on things like the apprentice that no one cares. Trump is different people have seen his flaws for decades. But along those same lines they see strengths as well. We know he's good at negotiating and he understands markets. I'm not convinced yet that a businessman was a better choice than a politician even a bit sceptical. However im willing to see what he can do we cant even judge him until after his first year.
