Your para you quote is talking about object oriented style of programming which is pretty hard. Why don't you start off with a simpler language and after mastering a simple language , go on to learn more complex ones? I don't know what your goal is or why you're learning but for most current rapid ...

And I agree with robdemanc, practise and learning by examples will help quite a bit, along with some trial and error :P I'll keep that in mind. Any tips on how to maintain my interest? I know if I get deep enough into it it might turn into an obsession (which is what I want), but I'm struggling in ...

Programming. Pictures and diagrams are pretty limited in this field. My sympathies for a number of reasons. Most online resources for programming I've found are messy and lack precision, context, and background. It might help to work on small projects over studying sometimes so you can see what you...

Computer programming? Look for the Head First technical book series. They have a lot of pictures. I don't know if they have it in your language, but it would be called something like Head First Java. And their website is: http://www.headfirstlabs.com/readme.php Also, I found The Visual Guide to Vis...

Is the problem with processing written words, or with processing words in general? Words in general. In order for me to understand something, I have to produce a mental image of it, and if a sentence is too complex, my mind would get stuck on it, and I experience anxiety. It just feels inefficient ...

Does anyone else find it difficult to learn something new (especially if it's technical) by reading about it? I don't mean simple information, like the news and such, I mean like a textbook. I do well with visual representation of information, but reading is too exhausting. The problem is that every...

I'm trying to learn a programming language (Objective-C) but my progress is very slow. Whenever I try to read a guide, the language is just too complex for me to read through easily, which exhausts my brain. For example: The NSDictionary class declares the programmatic interface to objects that mana...

Well, that's why I said that it's not necessarily "better", just further in the direction humans are headed. It seems to me that we're living in a world where instincts are becoming less and less relevant to survival. Maybe a few hundred years from now everyone will be somewhere on the spectrum.

...a more advanced form of humans? Though I don't mean "superior" by that, but more like having characteristics that increase the gap between humans and animals. Let me explain. Us humans seem to have sacrificed instinct for mind. By default, we know less than animals do. We need to learn basic surv...

Something most of us do to maintain our focus is to maintain some routines and rituals, but I wonder how many of you do something unusual and creative to help you focus. The typical focus tips you find everywhere just don't do anything for me. For instance, I have to do more than one thing at the sa...

Make sure your memory loss is actual memory loss, because sometimes it's just that you don't pay attention to certain things as you used to, so you tend to forget about them. For example, if you have some form of OCD or anxiety, you may pay too much attention to, or think too much about certain thin...

I know what you mean, but I wouldn't call it over-thinking. I'd say that it's merely a particularly inquisitive nature. To be honest, I actually never had to study for anything until I started my grad classes. However, I've always been the type of person who, if asked what I'm thinking, tends to re...

Anyone have this problem where you just can't stop overthinking things? In my case, I cannot bring myself to actually do anything without thinking about it, and hence it becomes too stressful to actually do anything. I think it's kinda like OCD, but broader. I just have to understand everything befo...

People always tell me that I HAVE to be able to organize my time, but I've never ever in my life have been able to follow specific schedules I've made out for myself. It's like I have to focus on one thing at a time and not be stressed by any time restrictions. I know autistic people -- myself inclu...

I keep saying to my self, "Focus, little Grasshooper", one of the things that kills me is interruptions, I often have to literally stop moving and purposefully remember what I am supposed to be doing and it's actually draining. If I don't force myself to focus on the task at hand, it doesn't get do...

Is it normal for autistic people to simply not care about things that are important? Like for example, I really want to get good grades in college, but at the same time, I just am not interested enough to be able to concentrate on studying, because I simply can't visualize or feel how it would be to...
