 Forum: General Autism Discussion   Topic: [Poll] Do You Seem Far Smarter Online Than in 'Real' Life?

As an autistic, do you feel as though you're viewed as slow in 'real life' or, if not slow, at least not nearly as smart as you really are? While, online, you're constantly told you're amazingly bright? This is my reality. In real life, at least a few people have definitely viewed me as slow, and ha...

Indeed. I find that, in addition to it scratching my stim itch, it also helps me think and process things more clearly and effectively.

Trying to get over some of the harsh, unforgivable sh*t my unstable brother said to me the other day. I didn't take much of what he said to heart, and some of it I laughed off entirely, but one thing in particular was especially bothersome to me: he told me that some people he speaks to think I look...

Bacon and caramelised onions, shrimp, pineapple, and spinach and pesto make for great toppings. I often feel like eating shrimp pizza, but no one I know likes that. And that's unfortunate, as I tend to only get take-out when with others. Surprised anchovies aren't on the list! The Teenage Mutant Nin...

My stim of choice, for numerous years now, has been pacing. When I feel the need to scratch my stim itch, I get up and pace back and forth while contemplating mental baggage from the last few days. In addition to scratching my stim itch, pacing provides me with a bit of extra exercise for the day. A...

Stimming can definitely be dancing or thumb sucking. A very common stim, that people typically aren't first to mention, is jumping. This seems to be amongst the most common stim performed by aspie children. Typically they'll do it when excited, such as while viewing a TV show or movie that brings th...

Sometimes . . . it depends mostly on the destination. What I'm into is exploring places that differ significantly, in more than one way, from where I live. I'll travel to places that don't differ so much from here, but only if it involves meeting up with someone. While I'll always experience a degre...

Whenever possible, I always choose self-checkout. In my experience, I've only ever had to talk to someone when something won't scan, or I've accidentally scanned something twice. Every time this has happened, I've had a pleasant—albeit not exactly fun—exchange with the person. What I don't like is w...

Hey thanks :) You're most welcome. I like Tales From the Crypt too my favorite episode was the one with the maniac dressed as santa claus trying to kill the woman who murdered her husband on christmss eve. Great episode. That's the second episode that aired. My favourite episode would probably have...

Nice taste, Zombini. I love horror, though I'm more into horror anthologies ( Tales from the Crypt , Tales from the Darkside , etc.) than I am into horror films. Slashers can be good, but my preference is for cerebral and atmospheric horror. I also like comedy horror (think Peter Jackson's Braindead...

I find them quite noticeable at first, but after a while I feel naked when I haven't got one on.

I find watches aesthetically pleasing and I've long been fascinated by their internal mechanisms. Despite this, I haven't owned one in close to a decade.

At this point: not really. There's that element of uncertainty when having kids; you never know just how they'll turn out. As a person who is the sibling to a very mentally unstable brother, I'd feel awful to be the parent of someone who hates life, and is so full of negativity and aggression, as my...

My suggestion is that you stop drinking it, start drinking less of it, or switch to decaf. Because not being able to focus on anything and shaking and fidgeting can't be much fun. And, to answer your question: yes, coffee affects us just like it does anyone else, though people on the spectrum might ...

Cloud (Final Fantasy VII)

Mario (Super Mario Bros.)
Samus Aran (Metroid)
Sparkster (Rocket Knight Adventures)

Also, I like the Sonic games but I've always found Sonic to be a bit of a douche.
