Okay, so every NT has their clumsy moments sometimes, like tripping over stuff or something.
But I wanted to ask when it is related to poor Motor Skills an when you're just clumsy.

I'm asking this because, yes, I have a lot of my clumsy times, but mostly they have a direct cause (and sometimes they don't).
Like, last year, while walking over the school garden backwards, There was this little stone seat behind me which I tripped over, did a summersault backwards and landed on the ground with everybody laughing...
But then you have other moments when I'm just walking in the hallway, and I fall... Just like that, I trip over my own feet.
I also fall off my chair at least 4 times a week for some unknown reason, and I always drop or break things.

So what of these things are related to Motor Skills, and what are just me being clumsy?
Or give me an example when you are being clumsy or have poor motor skill-moments.

It would help me a lot, thanks :D XOX

It's these NT's and their inferior love affair with the 3 dimensional world that is at fault here not us. We're just waiting FOR THEM to catch up. It's like how America and Germany, Japan, Korea, Canada, Brazil, Taiwan, France, is desperatly waiting for communist China to wake from it's infantile stupor.

Once the world can comform to our Aspergers powers, and we can spontanously manifest molecular structures at will, we will have no more need for these foolish toys. Is as monkeys look for termites with sticks.

*Raised eyebrow*.. Big ego much? If you plan on annihilating everyone that isn't like you, go join the fascist party.

Er... what did you think clumsiness was if not poor motor skills?

To be quite honest, I like the way physics works just fine. No need to screw with it.

Clumsiness is not necessarily poor motor skills. Some people simply have trouble understanding where their body is in relationship to the environment, bad proprioception. I have it at least partly because I'm falling apart—I have a connective tissue disorder, and joints spontaneously move out of place—and possibly also because of AS. No matter how careful I am, something's gonna trip me up. Even blank, flat floors sometimes; I can trip over my own feet, literally.
