How do neurological disorders or psychiatric disorders affect generation archetype?
#1
Because of my Aspergers I can't fully relate to any archetype. How does Autism affect generational theory?

It doesn't. Generational theory should be considered like macroeconomics - it attempts to explain the larger forces that drive things at a societal level. How it impacts the individual is largely irrelevant.

I think of it in the same way that an individual shouldn't use macroeconomic trends as a key determinant in choosing whether to buy a house (one's personal financial situation is a few thousand times more important).

Exactly!
Intelligence is not knowledge and knowledge is not wisdom, but they all play well together.
