Which out of the 3 would you choose if you had to be one of them?

(I voted for Aspies because I am one. - but others can pick what they want)

Aspergers Syndrome and Autism are different but there are similarities that can make it confusing.

From what I can gather Aspergers Syndrome is mild form of Autism.
Imagine erm.. comparing a bus to a coach? or Bus to a car. They're both the same but as you see they do different things while along the same lines.
I'm still trying to understand about Autism myself but its generally the severity of the disorders.

Heres a quote from Wiki (Aspergers Syndrome)

Unlike those with autism, people with AS are not usually withdrawn around others; they approach others, even if awkwardly, for example by engaging in a one-sided, long-winded speech about a favorite topic while being oblivious to the listener's feelings or reactions, such as signs of boredom or haste to leave.[5] This social awkwardness has been called "active but odd".[5] This failure to react appropriately to social interaction may appear as disregard for other people's feelings, and may come across as insensitive.


I've updated the 1st post's spoiler to add another wiki related link.

Fair enough.
I think I narrowed them down quite considerably as there are other Autistic disorders. I've only put the ones that I hear from the most.
If anybody has views on why they chosen that 'option' - I mean people stereotype saying people with Autism are better or Aspies or better, but it depends on the way you live your life really to make a choice that best fits you.
