      A useful practical definition - Although at the moment I have a very tentative sense that maybe Aspiedom could be "more than the sum of its' parts" - That the characteristics need to "work together" in some way, almost that you could have someone in whom the characteristics displayed rather mildly, yet who would still be recognisably Aspie, whereas someone who "presented" more strongly might come across as not "really" Aspie - Just speculation though - Thoughts anyone?

      I am not sure that if the whole world were an Aspie[sic] the social concerns of Aspiedom would actually vansih.[sic]

      That and the tests on Alice's site that she posted recently, plus some quizzes by Simon Baron-Cohen and Tony Attwood all pretty much conformed[sic] my Aspiedom.
