Abstract: 

This personal account is an effort to explain some aspects of a distinctive minority characteristic which is  strongly associated with being male and correlates considerably with ability in the physical sciences.  Asperger's syndrome occurs with a range of degrees of severity and is no doubt modified by the upbringing an individual receives from his  or her  parents. The visible signs include physical and social gaucheness.
