💪Skills and Strengths
My Neuro-exceptional talent
I enjoy working with my hands, using my intense focus and attention to detail to craft intricate works of art and design. I am generally good at spotting patterns and errors in visuals and in text, and I enjoy writing with nuance and complexity in language and ideas. I work well independently, and I pay close attention to written instructions and guidelines to self-monitor my work. I can focus on a task for long hours when I am free to work at my own pace in a quiet, predictable environment. I am an empathetic person, but dealing with people is tiring and I prefer to limit my interactions to preserve my energy and focus.
