Asperger's Syndrome and Psychological Type

Authors: Robert G. Chester

Asperger’s Syndrome (AS) is a form of autism which, in many cases, seems indistinguishable from certain of the Jungian/Myers’Briggs personality types. This article explores the relationship between AS and psychological type. Anecdotes on both sides of the question illuminate a review of the literature on AS and type. Direct and often conflicting quotations clarify and contrast these differing views of personality.
