Why do you "suspect" they have AS?
I ask because I have worked with people who are highly intelligent, and can't be bothered with people who aren't. Their lives weren't limited in any way that they, themselves, did not choose. They couldn't be bothered with certain social niceties that seemed like time and energy-wasters, and if that turned off some people, well, too bad for those people.
