2. Personal Characteristics

One thing that sets Asperger's syndrome apart from other forms of autism is that people generally have strong language skills and are highly intelligent. They often have a very narrow field of interest that manifests as savant-like abilities. Like some other forms of autism, Asperger's may also result in repetitive behaviors and tics like rocking or finger-twisting. People with this syndrome often prefer strict, rigid routines and can get upset when things do not go according to plan.
