I have the same question as Rob. I think Nadine has a good point about high-functioning autistic or Asperger's syndrome folks. But what about those who are more "normal"?

This could be helpful for people who are on the autistic spectrum, especially teens.  Being able to work with someone who can't get emotionally hurt and stays patient could do wonders.
