    Nice article with some salient reminders to beware cognitive bias.

    For many years I have told the story of a highly talented, autistic, inline hockey player I had the pleasure to coach. It wasn’t so much his amazing ability to read patterns in plays that intrigued me, rather that other high performing players were similar in their success compared to him. His “hockey intelligence” was unique both in expression and style.

    Whether it was an innate talent, or was in some way linked to his condition is the real question, and I have no idea how to answer it.
