Your a shaman. Deal with it. Nothing wrong with you. Everything wrong with this civilizational progress turned death. Live and love nature and you will be cured. 🌎
I'm a transit bus driver. I enjoy using and perfecting the technical skills involved and I am almost always left alone by supervisors. I'm able to avoid eye contact in my interactions with passengers and I've excelled at this job. I've been in this position for 12 years and I compete every year. I am currently ranked 2nd in my state and have won a state wide safety award for safest bus operator. It's been a pretty good fit for me.
I'm being blocked from becoming a pilot because of autism but I'm able I also want an engineering degree
I'm a janitor. I like it.
Why is this in my recommended 🤔🤔
jobs scare me until i am totally comfortable with the people & environment also being forced into wi-fi in most situations kills my mental state so that doesn't ever help the situation #stop5g
I work as a roofer. Sometimes I love it, sometimes I hate it. But it's time to become a foreman for me and I'm still not sure if I want it.
Do you have any advice for aspies who feel constantly burned out?
I like to be left alone and given space, hard to find jobs like that, even harder to find ones where the actual job is something that interests me or that I feel somewhat good doing (as opposed to lamenting going into work every day)
I work in a weed shop
I’m 66 and just learning I’m autistic. Some background in Nursing but ended up working in a Lab as a quality control Chemist. I test very high. I always did see myself as an alien on the planet. I now feel ‘normal’ knowing I’m autistic. Finally found my peeps.
I'm not aspie but this is the kind of job I want. I'm doing my first 'real' job at school, but my boss is terrible at giving direction. The few times he gave me a task I finished it super fast, and then I had to pretend to work for for 2 weeks. The last thing he told me to do was to study a subject. But he didnt give a particular goal. I'm just reading stuff aimlessly. It's stressful because I feel like I'm doing nothing. If he asks me to talk about what I read I'll have a hard time because I'm horrible at talking. D:
It's irksome to me how people, including fellow Aspie's, think digi-tech is the ideal professional haven for us. It's possible to be an Aspie and despise white collar tech work. The best, most comfortable job I've ever had was as a night janitor. Talk about performance-based work! Is it clean in the morning? The answer was always yes, VERY. I saw my bosses maybe twice a year. The few people to cross my path usually had no desire to strike up small talk with a lowly janitor so it was perfect. However, the only way to make good money was to get paid by the task and not the time and work FAST. I put myself through 6 years of college working about 90 minutes a night for two janitorial companies, but got paid 12-16 hours for it. I've hated every (better paying, higher tech, higher status) job I've had since. In fact I sorta fantasize about retiring back to it someday; it was that comfortable.
Work just fucking sucks. Mostly.
Stand up comedian?
Massage Therapist here. Love it!
The one you can keep.
I think they are good writers. I’ve seen so many comments from people here and I think I know one too. I’ll ask him if he is an aspie
I found that I'm great in sales, for many reasons but one big reason that people appreciate and honest and transparent seller. But also achieving everything people always thought I wouldn't be able to, makes me very proud!
If you work the regular hours job, and are both efficient and intelligent………you WILL be punished! I'm joking, but it feels that way in most salary jobs where if you dont waste time and get things done fast, its like "well you've got to fill the time" and people can end up thinking you are lazy…..rather than super-efficient and effective. I've had that issue in multiple jobs and learned the hard way for low level jobs to actually work slower and be less efficient (which I loathe) so it doesn't make others look bad/lazy/slow (as in physically slow, not their intelligence).
Problem is that when you are low skilled. Low skills jobs tend to be not friendly for aspies.
Software developer or something with math. Good pay and remote options.
It turns out i dont have autism i just masturbated too much which made me very anxious the ones who sees this and masturbates, try stopping for 30 days you might not have aspergers
What makes a job Aspie friendly? Any job that doesn't have annoying NTs working there. Aspies aren't the problem – NTs are – but unfortunately, the world is by far a majority NT.
Too many workplaces where I was jerked around have left me mostly unemployed since I left school where I was a low achiever. Had cruel and uniasaul parents and I believed their view that I was thick and worthless. Went to university in my thirties and got a double First MA despite leaving without making friends. No Asperger's diagnosis yet; just "depression/anxiety" for all my adult years which is extremely implausible. Can't think of anything to do work wise as I'll always be jerked around if among people.
I'm aspie, I work in Civil Construction (Building Roads). I'm currently building Western Sydney Airport.I'm generally a labourer, but I also operate a Roller.It's repetitive work, I often work alone, but also with a couple of good blokes.You have to get over the social aspect of it. A lot of LOUD people and machines…..but no one blinks at you wearing earplugs. They're encouraged.Long, 10hr days.But, like you said, everyone is abrupt, straight to the point, no sugar coating, and so I don't have to worry about offending people myself! I still need to sit by myself for lunch, just so I don't have to make too much conversation.Also, the money is good.
I make a living trading the U.S. markets at night from home. I am completely self taught. I could not cope with the 9-5 grind. I live on my own and work on my own which is very difficult for neurotypical people but it suits me perfectly. Being an aspie is a big advantage in what I do.
but some research based jobs are not performance based, or it may take a while before you get some recognition
