                     Are Sir Boast-a-lot’s stories even true?

Okay, can I just say this is another reason why John Waston is absolutely incredible? Because he knows that Sherlock isn’t a “high-functioning sociopath,” he just has Aspergers. They might seem the same at first and function on some of the same bases, but they’re completely different. This is sociopathy (taken straight from my psych notes):

  • Marked by a specific set of personality traits
  • Guiltless, dishonest, manipulative, callous, shallow emotions, lack of empathy, self-centered
  • Tend to be charming, personable, and engaging

Now, that might sound like Sherlock a little, but it doesn’t all fit, does it? He is not charming, personable, or engaging in any sort, even when he tries his best to be any of those things you can tell how unnatural and horrible of an actor he is, and there are so many points in all of the episodes that show that Sherlock Holmes does have a heart and is not guiltless or lacks empathy (the last ten minutes of Reichenbach, when Mrs. Hudson gets hurt, the scene in the Great game where John enters the pool and Sherlock, for a moment, is absolutely devastated the one man he thought was his friend turned out to be his enemy, when he honestly apologizes to John in Hounds in the cemetery) that it’s rather ridiculous. Now let me read you some of the symptoms of Aspergers:

  •  difficulties in basic elements of social interaction
  •  failure to develop friendships or to seek shared enjoyments or achievements with others
  •  may engage in a one-sided, long-winded speech about a favorite topic, while misunderstanding or not recognizing the listener’s feelings or reactions, such as a wish to change the topic of talk or end the interaction
  • display selective mutism, speaking not at all to most people and excessively to specific people. Some may choose to talk only to people they like
  • they may be able to show a theoretical understanding of other people’s emotions; however, they typically have difficulty acting on this knowledge in fluid, real-life situations
  • display behavior, interests, and activities that are restricted and repetitive and are sometimes abnormally intense or focused
  • Children with AS may have an unusually sophisticated vocabulary at a young age and have been colloquially called “little professors”, but have difficulty understanding figurative language and tend to use language literally
  •  have particular weaknesses in areas of nonliteral language that include humor, irony, and teasing
  • associated with high levels of alexithymia, which is difficulty in identifying and describing one’s emotions
  • strange sleeping patterns
  • failure to react properly to social interactions; may come across as lack of empathy

Now, which one sounds more like Sherlock Holmes to you? Aspergers starts as a child and, if diagnosed properly, that child can learn how to cope and be almost normal, but it’s obvious that Sherlock never got that and was teased and bullied his whole life, which just made his condition worse. It’s kind of sad, really; the “fact” he’s a psycopath or sociopath has been ground into his head so hard that even when he should know he isn’t and be able to diagnose himself correctly, other people’s perceptions of him have made him believe them.

The whole Christmas scene with Molly and Lestrade is a testament to that, how nervous and uncomfortable he is even among his closest friends that he ends up completely embarrassing one and single-handedly ruining another’s marriage in one fell swoop; then at the morgue talking with Mycroft he is obviously desperate to understand why he is how he is (aka alexithyma), which a sociopath would never do or have a problem with. Even this above gifset where John says he secretly likes having him and Lestrade here together displays that selective mutism. Also, let me repeat, just because it may seem like a person with Aspergers lacks empathy doesn’t mean they actually don’t have it, they just have a harder time grasping social situations and responding correctly. Which is exactly what Sherlock is, and the fact that John knows it really colors their whole relationship a new shade, and almost every scene after you realize this you can tell how hard (unless Sherlock really pisses him off, but even then most of the time he isn’t harsh with him) he tries to help the other man through his condition and be supportive of him and help him show Sherlock right from wrong in a social connotation. Which he obviously hasn’t told Sherlock yet, the way he tries to gently educate Lestrade in this scene and, when Sherlock butts back in, steps away from the DI quickly. He merely wants to treat Sherlock as normally as possible and gently nudge him in the right direction. Sherlock might be healing John, but John is trying to do the same for him. Just another reason why John Watson is absolutely incredible, everyone.
