Don’t you find it a very blunt instrument of judgement though?

If judgement is employed the blunt instrument factor can very much become the case, yes. How do you imagine its application to be like a blunt instrument in the above respect?
As a fan of Rousseau....surely we were all born equal and questioning the world and our place in it or equal footing....but I feel uncomfortable with categorisation of ND and NT and not just people......said the self diagnosed freak on the NAS forum! Lol
whose judgement of the world is more real or valid?...it is the variation of interpretation that gives us our humanity.

Yep, me too. Diagnosis or not, think I still have plenty in common with "NT" people - two ears, ten fingers... Well, other stuff too. I'm also not keen to define myself via a diagnosis, I'd rather tell people what I'm good at and where they need to help me a bit or be a bit more patient. The only problem is that they then say that's just normal and everybody needs/is like that, until it actually comes to the situation and suddenly it's not seen as quite so normal anymore.
So what is there understanding and what is ours?
