My original posting already demonstrates one of my aspie traits: I phrased it so badly both of you misunderstood. I didn't mean to say I thought I was autistic just because of clumsiness and facial expression. In fact it's my understanding these two characteristics aren't diagnostic criteria, but often go along with an autism condition, and so I mentioned them separately. I had at the time been diagnosed by an autism expert, and have recently received the same result from a second independent psychological evaluation.
