Data from Star Trek hands down!




It's funny 'cause I don't watch Star Trek! (OK, I did when I was little but don't remember much about it)

I know people have said this, but Sherlock is for sure an Aspie.

Lars from Lars and the Real Girl seemed to have some traits of autism. It's a really good film which I'd recommend to anyone who hasn't seen it.

And also Marcus from About A Boy seems to have some traits of autism, such as not understanding sarcasm, etc.

I love Whitechapel! I hadn't really thought about it but yeah, that does really suit Buchan. Chandler definitely has OCD as well, he is quite obsessive.

I did Of Mice and Men and I would say it is highly likely.

Denny from "The Room" might be autistic. In fact, Tommy Wiseau did say a couple of times in interviews that Denny is supposed to be "mentally retarded" (ugh I hate that phrase!)

Caleb Prior, Jeanine Mathews ( is that how you spell it? her name is one of the biggest reasons for how much I hate her) and most of Erudite from Divergent
Also I am not to sure about how every one says that Sherlock holms has asbergis definitely the modern day TV adaptions but if you read some of the original stories he doesn't exhibit much behaviour associated with Asperger's being both caring considerate and perfectly understanding of social situations and human emotions than you would expect most people with Asperger's to be able to ( I am not saying you cant but he is able to read subtle body language etc) however he is phenomenal is spotting patterns so I would place him as having mild autism.
