I would not say the same amount perse.

Some people are better in lots of stuff than others, question is: are you going to be a dick about it?

A friend of mine is far smarter, more confident, more succesfull, more likable and socialle intuitive than most people I know. And he handles it good too, isn't arrogant at all. He does not lack in other areas just to compensate.

That's because I'm convinced it's a feature of the brain. It may not seem apparent to you, but you can do things that he cannot, or hasn't learned yet, and does not reveal to the public or might not even know himself.

Deep inside the brain, we're all the same, we all have a similar selection of capabilities. There is a difference between abilities and capabilities though; eventhough you might be "eligible" for having a talent in something, this does not mean you have it yet.

What you're probably refering to are abilities. I'm, talking about the intellectual potential one has, for actually developing such abilities. Those capabilities are not the same for everyone, but similar nevertheless. We all can learn to ride a bike, we all can learn how to write, we all can learn to speak. Doesn't mean everyone actually can, they just haven't learned it yet.

Words come in all sizes. But even if they fit you,
they might not come at appropriate times.

Good for everyone is finding yourself first,
and then the good in others second.

Ofcourse, I can write music, he cannot.
But that does not mean we have the same amount of capabilities or the same intellectual potential. You are right in that the capabilities are similar, but not the same. You basically came to the same conclusion

The point is, that does not make him a better person than someone who isn't build the same. Hence my 'are you going to be a dick about it'.

I see I used the wrong term, I was talking about capabilities, we all have the same amount of those, I guess it's a typo.

So, not the same abilities, but the same capabilities. Or very similar anyway.
I meant to say, eventhough superficial we're all different, we're actually quite similar deep down inside. Or we wouldn't all look "human"

Yes, we have similarities. That is why we both have two eyes. One might see better though.

I would like to point out the as brain is strongly believed to be "wired" different which would mean a physical difference which would result in different capabilities

I would like to agree with you, and I don't disagree. But do also note that "they" don't know everything yet.

My own condition isn't even known either. Unfortunately.

True, they don't know everything yet. Nor do we.
Or are you suggesting you know more?

You may be so bold, but I can't explain.

Through the years, I've met an incredible amount of different conditions in people. And without joking, I experience every single one symptome of everyone in myself as well.
So I've got Asperger, Classic Autism, PDD-NOS, ADHD, ADD, Dyslexia, and a tenfold of different typical strengths and weaknesses of (for me) unnamed disorders, as well as personality complexes, depressia (or whatsitcalled) and a lot of behavioral anomalies. Not to mention I'm running ten years behind of my age (and at the same time ahead).

Confused? Funny is, my mind is in complete order, and a lot of these symptomes balance each other out. One thing I have a talent for, in my mind my whole personality is a switch board. I can flip a switch for everything.

*Edit:
And so I also feel sympathy with every kind of person, no matter what they have, because I have it too.

Absolutely not. I've never actually given any of these things attention, and I just don't intent to. I just notice my similarities with everyone, and I use it to help me help them. Notice I changed my stance towards you when you revealed to have Asperger? I didn't come screaming towards you that I've got it too either.

Well be careful you don't want to inherit the darker traits of autism and such.

Too late
But I've been suicidal as well. At some point, it became too much. That was two and a half years ago. Ever since then, I've lost my fears, so I can't say it shouldn't have happened..

Eh, only in certain interpretations. IIRC in the animated series, it was basically a helmet that connected to Professor X's wheelchair of awesomeness.

Seriously, if I had a wheelchair that could do all of that cool shit, like fly and shoot stuff, who wouldn't want to be Professor X?
