Views: 756 I did it to see how my verbal and spatial IQ compared. I don't take the FSIQ seriously as it's well known that giving A FSIQ is not recommended with a significant gap between the t...

For every girl with ADHD, there are three boys with the same diagnosis. But among adults, the gender ratio is more like 1:1. That’s a big discrepancy. So what’s going on? In 2017, Aja Louise Murray and colleagues investigated possible predictors of childhood vs. later (adolescent/adult-onset) ADHD, ...

The clumsiness VIQ<PIQ link is interesting.My stepdaughter says I'm the clumsiest person she has known. I was never told the result of the only official IQ test I took. I have however done a whole host of online non-verbal tests. I average about 72(3rd percentile). If we allow,for argument's sake, t...

Any psychologist who offers a FSIQ when there is a wide gap between VIQ and PIQ is an incompetent fraud.

The only people I interact with physically (not internet) most fortnights are my stepdaughter ,granddaughters, cleaner and the person who does my depot injection. I rarely go out. When I do it's to sit by myself in a nearby cafe that sells mediocre food or to go grocery shopping. Sometimes I go out ...

This is a question I posed on Quora to see what responses there were. To quote the second person that replied : No. There’s been a lot of BS floating around the Internet to the effect that dyspraxia is a learning...

When I had sex I blew hot and cold with long lay offs. I was inept at knowing what to do when it came to foreplay. I had a psychological block a lot of the time re being able to maintain an erection. When I could perform it took me ages to climax. Summing it all up I sucked at sex and wasn’t that in...

I just know from 4-7 I lived in Thailand and wore sandals . I'm guessing therefore it was after the age of 7. I've never really understood the different ways of tying shoes. I think I do mine in a bunny loop.

I'm not knowledgeable enough to have much of an opinion on it. I posted it to see what more knowledgeable people/those definitely on the spectrum thought. However from my own experience I tend to be very much focussed on one thing at a time . It might be for a short time before I focus on the next t...

I haven't laughed much since my wife died 13 years ago. Even back then I never found stand up comedians funny. I think a lot of the time I'm subconsciously trying too hard to process what's said , and miss the natural gut reaction. Occasionally something will make me chuckle but as for being able to...

Between 1and 2 percent of us are autistic, yet we still label autism as being ‘mysterious’. There is one approach to autism called monotropism which has hitherto largely been overlooked and which can provide a way to link all the pieces together and explain this phenomenon.

I don't know whether it's just me but I find adjusting hard. For example I have a routine with my clothes . Wear Monday/Tuesday and then Wednesday/Thursday. Wash Friday which my granddaughter hangs out for me before or after she takes me shopping. Wear Friday/Saturday/Sunday and wash Monday which th...

Judging by online tests I'm all over the place . On the nonverbal tests I average about 72(3rd percentile) but on three 50 question sample Wonderlic like tests I averaged 44(99th percentile). I am probably one of the most impractical persons you could ever meet. I rely on my stepdaughter a lot when ...
