Is it possible to be better at your job then your coworkers cause your autistic?

Not to sound like arrogant or anything but i have aspergers syndrome which is a form of autism and i was wondering if naturally someone autistic is wired differently and can work better then someone normal. My manager told me it would take two associates to replace me

  • Yes, I believe it can be helpful, depending on what field you work in. However, not to sound mean but I would never want to trade with you because lacking all those social skills will never compensate the intellectual edge in my opinion.

    • Yeah because i wonder sometimes why other people can't work at my level not in a arrogant way but legitimately curious

    • I have that sometimes. It's actually an effect of Aspergers. We don't understand why people aren't as good or better then us at everything.

    • Yeah i dont wanna feel superior i want level Ground

  • Possibly. I have asperger's but I get distracted very easily, albeit not by people I work with but just by other things I want to do. But everyone is different.
