Hi all. Let's talk about the concept of "European identity". A lot of people on the political right nowadays love to talk about the concept of "European identity". They say "We need to keep these Middle Easterners out of the West! They are trying to erase our culture and ou...

Well know this. Often I'm told that I "don't care" or that I'm "self centered" almost entirely based on my "apathetic facial expressions", but on the inside I do care and it's even worse because I don't know how to express this care. It's probably making him nervous and...

My advice for you might seem kind of strange, but it's worked for me. I'd recommend watching movies you think you'll enjoy that have a protagonist you'd like to be like. A movie or tv show where the main character has good social skills, etc. A good example is I'm a huge Pysch fan, and the main cha...

Right now it's just a game and a few cultural things. Also geography.

For me it's to remove all negative notions of that person from my mind so I PERSONALLY don't have to feel the hostility or hatred towards them. If they can't hurt me again or choose not to do it further, and if what they did doesn't have a lasting impact, then they are not important to me, so why sh...

Its kind of filthy looking, like dirty. I feel like it would be like swimming in a pool full of mud or macaroni. Obviously certain injuries look really fake and stuff, especially on movies, so I'm not disturbed at all. Other times though, it can be disturbing, depending on severity. An arrow through...

That we have trouble relating to people sometimes, expressing or understanding emotions, or connecting, and it causes feelings of isolation and loneliness in some of us. Also, we're not TRYING to be confusing or annoying when we have to ask about everything to understand what you mean. We're also no...

I used to have some issues with this but I think I've gotten better. I used to panic and other times I would just submit but I feel like that behavior is diminishing the more I learn about myself. At one point I would just agree with an insult someone gave me even if I didn't really agree, now I can...

Though I only have Aspergers for this I don't really want to alter anything major about myself so the actual answer is no. But if I had a choice, I would change a few minor things (like how I talk too much or the way I do, my weird body language, my weird gate and speech) so I wouldn't look so god d...

Though it IS Finland's (and other Scandinavian's) decision, I personally don't think it should. I feel like Europe should be divided based on a combination of historical categories (like Scandinavia or Iberia) and geographic ones. Finland can be included in Northern Europe but it could also fit bett...

Well, I know if a bunch of people are laughing, what the mood of the room is, of course. But if people are in a room and not talking, I wouldn't know what to make of the mood in the room. I guess I just didn't realize, beyond extremely obvious signs like laughing or crying, that one could ascertain...

I can tell that just through normal observation. If people are quiet then I usually act more quietly. If they're loud and talking a lot I will (try) to say something. If they're just having casual conversations then I'll keep to myself until I either find someone familiar or the topic changes to som...

I've worked for two people like that. Let me tell you how raw I felt at the constant gaslighting. Both hated,that I had no interest in social games. That REALLY pisses them off. I'm either too clueless to realize or I realize and refuse to give in. They then resort to insults and personal attacks c...

Sociopath and Sociopath-like people are everywhere. They're numerous and incredibly powerful. They are ALMOST the main reason why this society keeps undoing itself. There are those who have things like panic and anxiety who may commit crimes or cause civil disruptions but they can be helped. Sociopa...

Same issue here. It sucks. I avoid anything sexual because sex in it's own nature turns me off. It seems like I'll only ever be able to experience thoughts.
