Dr Brennan appears to have some Asberger tendancies. Brilliant but with a tentative grasp on social norms and skills. What does anyone else think?

I love the character of Dr. Brennan and how she interacts with everyone else in her life. She is a very interesting character.

Asperger tendencies? umm....ok....being smart isn't an asperger tendency...people who have Asperger's just THINK they are smart, there is a difference. As for her grasp of social norms, throughout the show, if one of her friends needs her, she helps them (her actually having friends is another thing pointing to her not having asperger's). She may not know how to help, but she wants to help, which is something that someone with asperger's probably wouldn't care about.
She shows the same signs that most genius/prodigy/etc people show. i.e. not knowing how to form the friendships that they want, or how to show their feelings to the few friends they do have, it isn't a mental disorder. They had no friends growing up and never learned how to do those things, that may lead to problems, usually depression. but asperger's is basically a mild form of autism, and isn't something someone develops at age 20 something when they realize they have no friends.

Bisbig, It seems very obvious that you know little or nothing about Asperger Syndrome. To say that people with AS just "think they are smart" shows that you have not at all studied the syndrome. You should read about it before you give such answers. While not all profoundly gifted people have Asperger Syndrome and while not all people with Asperger Syndrome are profoundly gifted, there is enough overlap for the character to be both a mild aspie and profoundly gifted and actually the character of Dr. Brennan does show many Asperger tendencies. It isn't just that she hasn't learned social cues (though that is part of it because it is more difficult -- but not impossible -- for people with AS to learn social cues), but that she simply does not *get* them.
The latest research on AS shows that most aspies do indeed feel, and often they feel more deeply than other people, which is one reason why they build a wall between themselves and society.
