I've always found atheism to be the simplest option. No need to keep track of deities, or semi-deities, or rituals, or things you're supposed to do (or not do) for religious reasons. After all, what was the saying? "Out of 3000 religions, everyone's an atheist about 2,999 of them. What's one mo...

I'd give them a goal. Something they were either trying to strive towards, or a lifestyle they were trying to live. Something which seems, at least on the surface, to be harmless. Perhaps even laudable. Or at the very least, not uncommon. Then I'd have autistic hyperfocus bloat and exaggerate it, wi...

People who want to spend their free time look at computer or phone screens and talking about their jobs are more likely, at least traditionally, to have white-collar jobs. (And not ones where the focus is on interacting with other people.) It's becoming a little blurrier more recently with the rise ...

Always a relevant question. I'll admit that while I've talked to a lot of other autistic people, in-depth discussions of work haven't always come up. There have been some things mentioned, though. In my own case I spend many years being solidly good at physical paperwork, and spectacularly better at...

Survivor bias. You're comparing yourself against the cherry-picked tiny selection of people who did very well, either because they started out with significantly more resources, simply got lucky, or were in a position where they were able to work very hard without being held back (or a combination o...

I have felt bad every single time. I think it has to do with me wanting to be a good person, whatever that means, and disappointing my boss or letting down co-workers was upsetting for me. I have grown past this recently with counseling and making myself a priority over others. It's been said that ...

I've talked to a lot of people who read/assess resumes for their employer (and sometimes being the employer themselves), and there's one overriding issue which stands out above all others: There. Are. No. Standards. Every single person who reads a bunch of resumes is looking for something different....

It bugs me because there's often no way to determine what pronouns someone might prefer before contacting them, and it also means that even if writing to someone later, if you have a hundred or a thousand people to contact, you can't auto-fill pronouns from their name (in the majority of cases), you...

These days I consider whether the questions - or even the tests - are something that an employer actually needs to know in order to hire someone, or information I want them to have. If not, I'm perfectly happy to lie my ass off. 200% if the questions are fluffy indeterminate s**t that couldn't ever ...

I don't think I've ever felt bad about quitting a job. With some of them, it was "Well, that was not the worst experience I've ever had." With others, it was "f**k everything and everyone here and I hope you all fall down a well." But there's never been a job I wanted to do more ...

100% agreed. So much modern tech is just inherently polluted.
