Hopefully this should help because people I meet in person are usually very extroverted.

For me it's about control, independence, and freedom. Having AS means there are a lot of visible limitations on what I can and can't do. Social cues feel kind of like a prison. Fantasies allow for relationships full of emotion and closeness that I wont ever experience in reality, and similarly my fa...

Tone is something which can be mastered or misused by anyone but easily missed, especially with AS. Talking in the wrong tone can be perceived by others as extremely inappropriate. For example, using a loud or direct tone when consoling someone who has just lost a loved one, or using a quiet tone wh...

I have had a life-long intense rivalry with this sibling, and it really wears down on both of us, but due to their deep knowledge of human interaction and being a neurotypical, I am at a social disadvantage. I sometimes assume my sibling is an undiagnosed Sociopath, and their manipulative techniques...

How do you think SSRIs factor into this? Is it just my health anxiety or do they actually harm superconductivity?

It's not uncommon for aspies to work with some form of art. I'm trying to become a screenwriter for cinema. I've done an exhibition of paintings. Aspies can be much more creative than neurotypicals think. At times much more creative than neurotypicals in general. A majority of Aspies I know compare...

Same thing as Max1951 for me. Smaller and on the skinnier side, less muscle. I prefer being taller, or the same height.

Though I am flexible. Personality comes first.

I think enlightenment is real in some way, but superpowers like the ones you mentioned definitely not.

Definitely red. I prefer my own experiences and I have abilities in things I wouldn't like to lose. I feel like some degree of uniqueness is actually necessary to the health of a society.

I've felt the opposite effect, but it's mostly equal for me. I find that a few people of my sex are hostile or cold, while women are usually friendly and much easier to make conversation with.

Compared to today. For most of us, there was increasing pressure as we got older to adopt the same unusual or unnecessary social cues which restrict all kinds of things and permanently alter natural behavior for society's more artificial ones. Just a warning: The following isn't part of the question...

Diagnosed with SA even earlier than AS. Sometimes I wonder if I actually only have SA, just some very unusual variant of it. I occasionally have more in common with a socially anxious NT than I do with low functioning AS, but at some point they all merge anyway.

I dont understand it either. Ive never understood how people click and I cant. You shouldnt feel hurt. Just that it might be harder for you to click with people. People dont seem that interested in me. I hope that its because Im introverted and not because Im ugly. I think it's definitely introvers...
