I fluctuate between "more of a tomboy" and "extreme tomboy". I love wearing men's clothes and recently became obsessed with men's haircuts. I find most women's style-related stuff impractical and redundant. I used to be more girly but really can't see the value in things like mak...

I fully quit social media cold turkey for several reasons. I am still on Meetup to organize and attend in-person stuff. I still post here occasionally, but not often - see reasons below for why. 1) Yes, it is designed to be as addictive as slot machines, as a poster above said. You don't expect thin...

Re: the Cambridge Face Perception Test - Interesting. I scored higher than average and I thought I was horrible at faces, but come to think about it, have not noticed it being a problem lately. I used to not recognize people if they cut their hair or were in a different location all the time. I have...

I had a friend when I was a teenager who did not let me talk about my obsession at all, not even one word about it. If I did mention them, she gave me the silent treatment for a few minutes, which was very awkward when I was alone with her, like at her house. I do think that's overreacting a bit. O...

There are different degrees of prosopagnosia/face blindness, too. So you might be able to remember someone's face if you see them very regularly for years, but be unable to recognize a bunch of new people you just met. I agree with the hyperfocus point. Generally, talking to oneself is a common trai...

Committed mystics tend so be strongly self-absorbed. If suggest from this that it may harm your sense of connection to others. New Age types are generally just in it as a feel-good, fast-food kind of spirituality for the weekend, and not really indicative of the real temperamental features of the m...

As someone who has always struggled to create an emotional connection with people, I have become intrigued with the idea of using spiritual practices to enhance this ability. I am wondering if anyone else has explored this for themselves and what type(s) of practice you have found to be the most he...

Do you have diagnosis of NVLD, pervasive developmental disorder (such as Asperger's) or both? You have higher VIQ than I and minimally lower PIQ. I consider NVLD as a pervasive developmental disorder separate from classic autism described by Leo Kanner. Both NVLD and ASD are serious and complex dev...

I do have the odd period where I see no-one for a week or two at a time and, more rarely, much longer periods where my only interactions would be with shopkeepers, bus drivers, etc. But it can only take a few days on my own for my conversation skills to just go dormant; or just a few hours around p...

I recently posted a thread about unlearning social skills quickly and am realizing hyperfocus has a lot to do with it. When I am working on a project that is taking days/weeks, I cannot stop thinking about it as it is unfinished. As a result, I lose my ability to tune back into "social mode&quo...

I quite often go to leave the house and stop just as I'm opening the front door to wonder how long it's been since I spoke to someone and whether I'll be able to remember how to do it. Wow, that's fascinating. I rarely go for that long without interacting. I think my own social standard for myself ...
