Female, age less than 21, ńsperger syndrome/autism)
Location: Western Russia
Computer output: NP with high S score of 63 or NPA−. Low temperament T, extroversion E and aggression A scores.
The NP diagnosis is the most common in our English and French series for Asperger syndrome/autism (total of 143 subjects), and the trend is the same for the Russian series (three out of four subjects so far). We suspect that as we acquire more subjects, we will see some non-sanguine PA types appearing with this diagnosis in the Russian series.
Our impression is that Asperger syndrome/autism is used as a subjective diagnosis much less in Russian-speaking nations than in the West. This could be partly because in Western habitancies the NP type is more common, but also perhaps because it is a convenient, non-pejorative "warm and fuzzy" diagnosis in the USA as compared with "borderline personality", schizoid personality", "avoidant personality" and such.
