The IT industry has long known of the benefits of Aspergers. Its about time "the city" caught up!
 
Though I agree with the first post (by Physician) under the article. I had problems understanding office politics.

"But I have seen quite a few people fail to grasp the political and client-oriented aspect of what working in an investment bank really involves. This inevitably holds them back or worse, makes them redundant. From my anecdotal observations many Asperger’s sufferers seem unable to cope with the backstabbing, lies, brownnosing, discrmination and mendacity – all of which form a big part of the culture of an investment bank."
