I am at heart a designer. A good designer creates new and beautiful ways to bring more value (Beauty, Truth, Goodness - to borrow from Plato) per unit of energy invested (time, resources, money) than the current design.  What follows are seven examples of effective design.

Asperger's Syndrome

I demonstrate a number of Asperger's behavior traits:

  • Long attention span for details and higher interest in details than most.
  • Preference to speak and listen for long periods without interruption.
  • Viewing relationships through a technical and scientific lens.
  • Dissociation from culture and interest in efficient ways of doing things.
  • Seeing geometric shapes in my mind as a way of relating to patterns in the world.
  • A tendency towards synesthesia and poetry.
  • Building things in my mind from scratch independent of what everyone else is doing.
  • Very successful in my relationship with things and ideas and weak at establishing rapport with normal people.

I'm also in the category of HSP's. Too discover if you are part of the 10-20% of the population that is highly sensitive and to learn what that means in technical terms here's a test: https://hsperson.com/test/highly-sensitive-test/.  This translates into feeling strong physical and emotional sensations in response to many things others seem not to notice. I am compelled to adjust my environment or exceed my pain threshold.
