Sherlock mirroring John.

Oh, look, another symptom of Asperger’s Syndrome, not sociopathy.

Okay, it’s unpopular opinion time. Ignore me if you wish.

Alright. Let me start this little rant by saying that I’m absolutely sick of people claiming Sherlock Holmes to be a ‘sociopath’. He isn’t. Allow me to also say that I know how similar Asperger’s and sociopathy can seem, in certain cases, and that’s because I was misdiagnosed as a sociopath awhile back. I have Asperger’s Syndrome. As does Sherlock.

Common symptoms of high-functioning sociopathy:

  • Superficial charm
  • Manipulative and conning
  • Grandiose sense of self
  • Pathological lying
  • Lack of remorse, shame, or guilt
  • Incapability to love
  • Need for stimulation
  • Lack of empathy/inability to relate
  • Irresponsibility
  • Lack of realistic life plan
  • Extreme intelligence

Common symptoms of high-functioning Asperger’s Syndrome:

  • Issues picking in on social cues (ex: When someone is upset with them, or being sarcastic, it’s very hard for them to tell)
  • Appear to lack empathy/inability to relate
  • His or her speech may be flat
  • Formal style of speaking
  • May avoid eye contact (me) or stare at others (Sherlock)
  • Talk a lot, usually on favorite subject; inability to tell when boring the listener
  • Internal thoughts are often verbalized (ex: Seeming blunt or rude by telling someone they’re stupid, merely because they have no filter)
  • Extremely heightened senses (GEE I WONDER WHY SHERLOCK CAN SMELL AND HEAR AND TASTE AND SEE EVERYTHING)
  • Highly intelligent/logical way of thinking
  • Tendency to mimic others, especially people they like (JAWN)
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Typically only keep few, very close friends
  • Can go days without speaking, and eating very little, especially when drained

SO NOW THAT THAT’S COVERED. Let’s move on, shall we?

Sherlock Holmes grew up with the Holmes family, a respectable family. Behavior is learned, especially for those with Asperger’s. Why is Sherlock so proper? Why is he so cunning? Why does he dress the way he does? Well, that may just have something to do with the people he grew up with.

Is he manipulating? Of course. Yet, isn’t Mycroft? Hm. I wonder where he learned that trait. Not only that, but he’s doing it for basic information, not just for pure entertainment as a sociopath would. Let’s be serious. He doesn’t fool around. Oh, did I mention that’s another symptom of Asperger’s? Conversation and action for purpose, not for pleasure; very precise.

Let’s also toy around with a very common controversial topic within the Sherlock fandom: Sherlock does feel. He does love. He does care. The whole reason he jumped was because he cared. He cares for John, he cares for Mrs. Hudson, and he cares for Lestrade. John is his best friend, Mrs. Hudson is his mother figure, and Lestrade is his friend and his work. Without those, he would have been nothing. It would have destroyed him. Therefore, he destroyed himself in sacrifice (which we all know was faked, blah, blah, but the sentiment is still there, blah, blah).

While Sherlock may not have the physically clumsy symptoms of those with Asperger’s (I don’t either), that’s typical for someone of his age, as it’s something you usually grow out of as you get older. Asperger’s is a lifelong disorder. It never goes away, and there’s no medication that targets each symptom. You treat what you can, and live with what you can’t.

His need for stimulation, I think, has to do with his basic frustration and his work, as a matter of fact. Sherlock does drugs. Okay? That’s common knowledge within this fandom. He likes his drugs. Why does he do them? Well, to quote him, ‘they help him think’.

In all reality, it’s somewhat correct. The drugs Sherlock takes heighten his senses to an even more extreme degree, making him the observant smartass that he is. Not only that, but they speed up his thought process, and mixing that all in with his intelligence level, makes for one smart cookie.

I also believe that he’s just…frustrated. It’s hard. It really is. He knows he’s not like everyone else, which is why he’s clung onto the sociopath nonsense. He truly believes that he is a sociopath, probably because he’s done research on it and saw a partial match. It was something, finally something, he could relate to. Because I did the same goddamn thing. He knows it doesn’t fit perfectly. Moriarty knows it doesn’t fit perfectly. ‘We both know that’s not quite true’. He knows. He just has nothing else to hold onto.

Rant over. Knowledge is power. Blah, blah, blah.

The end.

YES

This post is so perfect it makes me want to cry.

Words of wisdom by art pal Amani Olu

melanieflood:

In a nod to Sol Lewitt, Sentences on Professionalism and Likability:

1. When someone supports your work in any form, small or large, say thank you, and the sooner you do it, the better.

2. Despite crowd density, make eye contact at social events.

3. Avoid social climbing.

4. Never ask this question: “What was your name again?”

5. At art fairs, do not bother dealers; wrong time, wrong place. No exceptions.

6. Give a firm handshake and smile when you meet new people.

7. If you agree to participate in an exhibition or any opportunity afforded you, then follow through on your commitment. If for some reason you cannot, let the interested party know as soon as possible.

8. Avoid being difficult. There is nothing worst than working with a difficult person, no matter how talented and respected.

9. No style of pajamas is acceptable in public or at social events.

10. Be appreciative.

11. If you see someone you know, say hello, even if that person is pretending to not see you.

12. Look out for your artist friends.

13. Respect everyone, even the intern; you never know who will rise to power.

14. Do everything with grace. Just because someone is being a jerk does not mean you have to respond in kind.

15. If you are with an associate and you run into an acquaintance, always make an introduction. Otherwise, it is awkward for everyone.

16. Do not alienate people with unprofessional behavior. If you have no place to hang your hat, then how do you expect to show your work?

17. Stay in touch with the people who have supported your work in the past, especially in the early years. It is the right thing to do, and you never know when you will need their help in the future.

18. Be honest about what you want from people and your expectations.

19. Get it in writing.

20. Stay humble and hungry. To quote Sean Combs, “Treat every project like it was your first.
