According to the latest DSM, none. Traditionally the distinction comes down to whether there was a delay in learning to speak: yes for HFA, no for Asperger's.

You see I would have guessed no for HFA aswell. I thought the two things were the same thing. and speaking delay in low to moderate functioning autism (?).

I read somewhere than on a Myers-Briggs test one was INTJ and the other was INFJ.

 

The Myers-Briggs test was created without any knowledge of AS or HFA.
