Thanks for that, I really want to get a handle on my condition and your information goes a long way into helping fill that gap. I feel like there's a lot of stuff in my head, other people don't have this stuff, things that I care about other people don't care about. Its hard to communicate with peop...

Can you have echolalia as a high functioning adult? I'm constantly repeating sentences in my head from movies and other media that I listen to. Is it 'echolalia'? or is it just my own thing.

I think we can all agree that people on the spectrum tend to have intense interests, and are more focused on understanding things logically than neurotypicals, now do you feel comfortable with me describing this as a 'coping mechanism' because we can't acquire thoughts and actions fluently from othe...

Whether someone was in the wrong isn't the main point. I think the main point is my brain, it doesn't react in a normal way which really is engineering a social advantage. Perhaps always telling people what they want to hear isn't the golden rule, but the other extreme is my earlier life which was p...

Yes, I guess the 'convoluted book' in question must have been the bible. I don't know if it was insecurity on my uncle's part, I think it was inappropriate for me to have said it to him. What happened is something, there should be a word for it, but there is no word for it. There was another instanc...

Thanks socofautism, its enlightening talking to somebody off the spectrum, my experience with autism is strange though I seem to understand sarcasm irony that stuff maybe not as quickly as people usually do, but giving an answer to people an appropriate response that can be problematic. I'll give yo...

It's not anything special, no... but it is real. It's a response in the limbic system, and when a person talks about "vibes" and such they're putting that into words. Everything that we think of is a reaction of some mechanism in the biological machine of the brain, but invoking that by d...

A "vibe" is nothing special. It's merely a personal feeling they're trying to push on someone else. By making it vague and "mystical" it allows the other person to "fill in the blank" with their own version of the feeling. It's a very basic sublimnal suggestion. You sa...

Sorry about that it seems that the forum doesn't accept quotation marks.

The autistic world is a world I navigate through without the right tools to deal with it. The right tools would be a serviceable theory of language that could rightly explain the cools and awesomes and vibes and wavelengths and what do these phrases really practically mean. I'm not satisfied that ac...

When I was young I was very envious of people who could use words like cool or awesome in describing things. I couldn't do that for me description was something that had to be specific and often critical and negative.

Thanks b9 I think its interesting how normal people can be very nondescript when it comes to describing important things they use words like its the "vibe" or "we are not on the same wavelength", these kinds of terms which are very vague.

So you don't think that people with autism have problems conversing and relating to other people then? If so then I might have to consider myself changing neurological designations.

I don't know how to do quotes so you'll have to forgive their absence in this post. Yes the sociallizing of nts is certainly a double edged sword with its fair share of downers. Its been interesting looking at the rise of IS, and how young people particularly young men are becoming terrorists a big ...

I find that American's attitude to their constitution somewhat religious in nature.

If you're religious then that should be OK for you but I'm an atheist.

You can't run into a crowded cinema and yell "fire!".

Freedom of speech is not an absolute, it has to be measured like any thing else.
