 Forum: General Autism Discussion   Topic: Do you like getting your hair washed at the hairdresser?

I always wash my hair before I visit the hairdresser to avoid any suggestions about that. What I want is the hairdresser to cut my hair and shut up. Especially if the hairdresser is male I try to keep the balance between appearing silent in a rude way and at the same time not encourage a lot of smal...

I'm not actually sure if Steve Jobs was Autistic. He clearly had some traits but I don't think he's been diagnosed or anything.

Of course it's not a proven fact.

^It seems to be various versions of these "findings". I didn't read the linked article, but read an behind-paywall article in The Guardian recently about some scientists taking stool sample from autistic people an injecting it to mice. They claim the mice then started to show "autism-...

I find it very hard to believe that the difference between autistic people and allistic people is caused by different gut bacteria. To be honest I doubt the spectrum of symptoms we lump together and call "autism" is one condition, but several different conditions that share some of the sym...

There's nothing wrong with venting as long as it's not presented as a request for advice. Speaking only for myself, I'm autistic and most of the time I can't tell whether it's presented as a request for advice or not. I am not sure I can tell that either. But I don't usually vent myself, so when so...

Also don't see how I can be autistic in a nice way. Isn't autism a bad thing. I think there are famous people that are suspected to be autistic and part of the reason for that is that they are head and shoulders above the competion in their field of work. Like Einstein, Bob Dylan, Messi, Darwin, Mo...

In my experience autistics have as much fashion sense as people in general. There are autistics that wear ridiculus outfits while some have an exellent taste in clothes and look great, and the same goes for allistic people.

I scored 15. That is like the average woman and below the average man. Does that make me an imposter? :?
No, I think there is something wrong with the test.

There's this incredibly incompetent dude in my life who has a crush on me. He just seems useless in all aspects of life, not just social skills. I look at him and think "incompetent". It makes me curious about why he thinks you would be a good match for him. Do you think of yourself as co...

Maybe everytime this happens you could say: "Sorry! I didn't mean to sound grumpy but I lose focus when I'm interrupted." Hopefully this will sink in and after some time people will stop interrupting you.

It depends on the situation, how it's done and various details, but generally speaking when a woman is touching your arm it is more likely she has positive feelings towards you than the opposite.
