    I've been thinking about this for a while and, because TouchArcade is such a good source for psychological disorder diagnosis, I'm asking about it here :cool:.

    I think my friend may have Asperger's. Here's a list of symptoms and what he seems to have: (underlined symptoms are what I've noticed in him)

    Speech and language peculiarities

    Few facial expressions

    Aspergers isn't that the disease every caught Hacker immediately claims they have as a defence although I don't think it's actually helped any of them.

    My opinion is while there are some real mental health issues the vast majority these days probably don't even exist, I think it's just a result of trying to take an average of everything when no one person is completely average. I honestly think most were just made up to push new medications.

    I'd say your friend probably needs a few nudges to get out there or a girlfriend.
