All people have personality types that colour their being and “souls” for want of a better word and looking at the profile of Asperger’ Syndrome it certainly has been very interesting breaking down this profile can be put into these domains.
- Social Perception 1 (social emotional agnosia)
- Social Perception 2 (prosopagnosia)
- Sensory Integration disorder
- Semantic pragmatic disorder (literal)
- Emotional perception (alexithymia)
- Motor coordination (dyspraxia)
These are the basics of the “profile” which can be separated into 5 different domains social perception, sensory integration, language processing, emotional perception and motor coordination.
Now let’s have a look at the conscientious personality type
- having strong moral principles and being certain
- not resting until the job is done and done right
- being loyal to families, causes, and superiors
- working hard to do well
- achieving and accomplishing things
- loving to work and be challenged
- Hard work. The Conscientious person is dedicated to work, works very hard, and is capable of intense, single-minded effort.
- The right thing. To be Conscientious is to be a person of conscience. These are men and women of strong moral principles and values. Opinions and beliefs on any subject are rarely held lightly. Conscientious individuals want to do the right thing.
- The right way. Everything must be done “right,” and the Conscientious person has a clear understanding of what that means, from the correct way to balance the checkbook, to the best strategy to achieve the boss’s objectives, to how to fit every single dirty dish into the dishwasher.
- Perfectionism. The Conscientious person likes all tasks and projects to be complete to the final detail, without even minor flaws.
- Perseverance. They stick to their convictions and opinions. Opposition only serves to strengthen their dogged determination.
- Order and detail. Conscientious people like the appearance of orderliness and tidiness. They are good organizers, catalogers, and list makers. No detail is too small for Conscientious consideration.
- Prudence. Thrifty, careful, and cautious in all areas of their lives, Conscientious individuals do not give in to reckless abandon or wild excess.
- Accumulation. A “pack rat,” the Conscientious person saves and collects things, reluctant to discard anything that has, formerly had, or someday may have value for him or her.
What I would like to do with this is myth-bust to some degree what is the “Asperger’s” and what is simply a personality type that rides along with the overall profile the profile is split into 5 domains the other aspects are simply a personality type and I wonder if sometimes the two get confused as the same thing.
