My anecdotal experience is religious autistics either like the rules, structure and ritual of religion or have schizitotopal traits or combination of both. Also rigid thinking can be a factor, especially if been engrained from.a young age. Another aspect is social isolation and parental influence ca...

IQ doesn't prevent cognitive dissonance and magical thinking. I agree with Robert Sapolsky Magical thinking is within the schizotypal spectrum. This doesn't nessisarily mean clinically mentally ill. This could be more common than not in general population, by definition 'normal'. There is some evide...

Naturalplastic not to be a stickler but there is also a variant that means surplus to requirements. E.g. being made redundant or losing your job. That doesn't mean the job still exists in the entire economy. In IT redundancy means additional copies (whether or not they are all currently used). As we...

A worry I have is that Aphantasia may become a fad. I don't wish to be a gatekeeper and I am sure it is a spectrum, however I don't want for it to be trivialised especially not the learning/cognitive challenges as a result of having it. Maybe I am being silly, I don't know. Anything about perception...

With me it's no images,smells,sounds,taste or touch. I had known I wasn't able to visualise for years, but had thought that was the norm. Same. In 2005 I did a guided imagery relaxation course at the mental health centre. We had to listen to a tape of a beach scene and imagine the sounds etc while ...

I have aphantasia and a UK citizen. I described it in detail to doctors and others way before I had heard the word aphantasia. None of them were interested, Including the Maudsley Hospital that diagnosed me as AS. I described it on WP years ago, some of my earliest posts. I described it to neuropsyc...

I have my ideal partner. However, I think topics like this can be somewhat counter productive if taken at face value. Only experiencing a stable relationship can give you a sense of who is a good fit. Many people have plenty of experience but they haven't had a sense of balance in their relationship...

We are somewhat beating a dead horse here twilight had every right to report the behaviour, and as a customer not have to deal it I'n the interests of understanding there seems be some confusion between criminal and civil definition of harassment. In most places the crime of harassment involves a re...

Why are you attacking ME? I don't make the rules (well, not all of them, anyway). I'm not attacking you. Why do you think that? Couldn't be further from the truth. Just replying Btw the point was actually about: Just because it is common for upgrades to requiring approval doesn't mean you know if t...

Pay attention. A company Code of Conduct can make it a dismissable offense to ask for a date -- as long as the dismissal is not related to the harasser's own sex, color, religion, et cetera -- it is perfectly legal to fire someone for sexual harassment. Sure the civil bar of sexual misconduct. I di...

Unless he was the manager, it is unlikely that he had the authority to comp an upgrade. Otherwise, ordinary clerks would be comping entire weekend stays for their friends and family.


Exactly. Assuming that is the case how do you know how the update was processed?

Ulterior motive. If his only purpose in comping the upgrade was to improve his employer's image, then there is no harassment. But he comped the upgrade for the apparent purpose of trying to score with a customer (and appearances count) -- he is not being paid to hit on customers, but to provide a s...
