aspd is developmental, you are born with it, it is not caused by anything after you enter this world. Then what personality disorders can explain antisocial behaviors from learning from the media? If ASPD is developmental, why can't it he diagnosed in children? I don't understand. Personalities are...

If the army mainly consists of conscripted unemployed or poor people I think the politicians are more likely to view the soldiers as expendable. It's important the thought "It could be my son or daughter" is hanging over the people with power as a sword to keep them back a little bit. Pro...

I hate to correct you but not all Japanese war criminals were held accountable after WWII. Those with information on Unit 731 (trigger warning: do not search for it unless you can stomach gore) were let go by the Americans for that information. The same can be said of the Nazis (rocket program info...

Alexithymia and dissociation or Alexithymia without dissociation could be potentially very interesting.

Do you really need Oppsitosal Defiant Disorder or Conduct Disorder to develop Antisocial Personality Disorder? All you have to do to develop ASPD without a history of childhood disorderly conduct, you can just develop antisocial traits by watching dark psychology on YouTube. The question is, am I c...

Is it harder for autistic people to know they are getting traumatized? Why? Everything is traumatizing, so I'm not sure why one sort of being traumatized is going to stick out more than another. OK, not everything, but it's frequently a pretty long list. A bunch of us wind up dissociated pretty har...

There are plenty of feminists that do think people who are born with male genitals who identify as women are women and lobby for them. It is called Transfeminism . There are other feminists that think it is the most misogynistic idea possible. A similar fundamental disagreement to is autism a disab...

^ I'm probably the most unpopular student to have gone to my public school in the 460 years of its existence. I was treated like I was an ugly freak. I had no idea how to socialise well. That situation hasn't changed much over the years. I've periodically tried to socialise more, as it's regarded a...

Not trolling, I really feel this way about myself. I just like fitting in and don’t like being different. Being able to have nice things makes me feel more “normal”. I think we all, to an extent, want nice things and social status, we just don’t openly admit it. Maslow’s hierarchy of needs places s...

I've read so many posts about people doing well until they reach college/uni. Then pure brain power isn't enough , and the bad habits they got away with come home to roost. I have no great achievements , not in the way that such things are usually judged. I do my best to be a good dad,granddad, and...

I didn't mean it quite like that.. I apologise for misconstruing what you said. Don't worry about it, it was a valid interpretation. I've not come across many overachievers in the high IQ community. I've come across more than a few underachievers. It took me ages to find a good explanation for the ...

Its been building up for a while. Its really really stressful.

and a false sense of how smart you are. Well that certainly put me in my place. If I had a strong sense of self it wouldn't matter, but because I don't the wide ranging views of how intelligent/smart I am aren't easy to cope with. Some see me as no more than a fool. Others see me as a person with '...

That's very much how it happened to me. The seemingly inconsistent control over focus then made me used to be so confused about it that it frustrated me to no end. Because I've been working with autism only , not autism plus something else. Now I don't have the 'plus something else' and only the au...
