    Damn you are stupid. 10 = 2. 01 = 1

    :p:


    1 = 1
    10 = 2
    11 = 3
    100 = 4
    101 = 5
    110 = 6
    111 = 7
    1000 = 8
    1001 = 9
    1010 = 10
    1100 = 12
    1110 = 14
    1111 = 15.
    10000 = 16.

    Etc

    In general there is a high degree of negative correlation between logical mindsets/skills and social skills, it's fair to say :ahee:

    Numerous neurophysiological and social/human behavioural reasons for this that I cba to get into right now..

    Oh. Is he still active? I'd imagine for him running TSR acc alongside his excruciatingly painful maths degree wouldn't be a problem. ..

    I agree; Jos is a fag.
    Hathlan!
    I miss you so much a little bit
    No offence, but you definitely aren't the counterexample I'm looking for.

    Oh wait: this thread is from about 3 years ago.
    Someone obviously doesn't have the social nous not to bump old threads :sadnod:

    The autistic and Asperger's types are usually good at maths because they are pattern-spotters.

    It's also possible to become good through study, in which case some are more capable than others at keeping up a social life, but it shouldn't be any different from other subjects.

    It's also possible to just be all round smart, these people are often glib, gregarious and good at both maths and music - the *******s.

    I don't think anyone would consider Carol Vorderman or Rachel Riley socially retarded.
