Courtesy of Wikipedia ( for the sake of length ok), here is the link: Aspergers, one of the repetitive things I did was sing all the time no matter where, when, or who was around and of course my interest (ancient egypt) was a very narrow interest. Anyways, also I am particularly good at guessing a correct mathamatical answer especially with graphs, but if I do the actual math it screws me up and I come up with the wrong answer. Also I was always really good with number patterns like phone numbers, etc, which led to me scoring real real high on the ASVAB test in the engineering section of that test, I scored higher than anyone had up to that point in time (app 1989).
restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests.
•Leaps of logic are common. Instead of progressing A,B,C,D and onward, you skip from A to N to Z, accurately.

I don't think it is normal. I don't know that is the question I am partly asking. I also have had teachers ask me if I was psychic I was what one considered psychic when I was that age but lied anyway because well Who wants to be a freak? Lol. I also had this thing where I could fall asleep in class and the teacher tried to call me out on it, until I repeated all he had said while I was sleeping, and yes I was fully asleep. He never bothered me when I slept again lol.
Researchers say they've found a new way in which prolonged exposure to the chemical messenger dopamine may play a role in depression as well as drug addiction. If confirmed by further studies, they say the discovery could lead to a new understanding of these complex disorders as well as better treatments.
