Aspergers Career Paths?
December 26, 2013 10:57 PM Subscribe
I'm somebody who's classic Aspergers (very focused interests, excellent with little pieces of data, sociable but utterly clueless), who's increasingly aware a lot of jobs revolve around the political side of things, and who's currently tossing up on university courses for future career potential (environmental/geosciences being a current lock).

I'd like to know what people in a similar Aspie position have done careerwise, how influential it's been on their choice of decision and the results, and what they'd recommend doing (both positive and negative recommendation is welcomed).
The classic one of programming I'd steer away from - I increasingly don't want to be on computers all day - but I'm willing to hear contrary opinions there as well.
