Without a license

Why we shouldn’t say, “Everyone is a little autistic.” I think it’s useful to avoid the terms shrinks have laid claim to. For instance, if I were to call Donald Trump a narcissist, there would be complaints that I am diagnosing a condition though I lack the credentials to do so. Therefore, I take the same evidence and call him a prick.
