Common myths about people with eating disorders

What do you find are some common myths about people who have eating disorders?
What are some assumptions that you and/or other people have about people with EDs?

For example (and I feel guilty for this), when I find young girls who are thin and extremely intelligent in some of my classes, I begin to assume that they have an eating disorder. Regardless of whether or not it's true, this is just a myth or an image. It is bad on my part that I'm assuming this, but I feel that it relates to specific things that I have learned on eating disorders.

If you want me to articulate more, I guess I can. It's been a long day.
