Sounds about right. It is good you are seeking a formal evaluation rather than guessing.

I'm a slow thinker, too, but the quality of that thought is fairly high. It has served me well in my chosen profession (engineering). Not so good for real-time conversation, though.

We learn from our mistakes, so "doing too much" and making a lot of mistakes at least means you'll be learning a lot of good lessons, too. For me, even though I'm learning how to pass better every year, it seems to be taking more out of me than it used to. My social anxiety has amped up in...

Happy Slackware user here! I tried other distros but kept coming back to Slackware.

It's the only OS on my laptop and desktop. It's rock solid and does everything I need.

I fully agree with your post. Many of us on this side of the spectrum (can't speak for everyone, but certainly me and some people I know) combine an extremely rich internal life and diminished expressiveness. There is much, much more going on in our heads than what the outside world can observe. Tha...

Interesting! I knew my meds impaired memory, but didn't realize it was so much. According to that test, my memory score is more than thirty points lower than my verbal and spatial.

Thanks for the link, firemonkey :)

My bipolar disorder emerged in my teenage years, and depression was definitely the harder condition to beat. How does one do something about depression when depression robs you of the impetus to do anything about it? What questor said is very important. Sleep, exercise, good diet, B-complex vitamins...

Real-time chat, like IRC and Discord, provide me with enough social contact to sustain me indefinitely. Maybe they can help fill the void for you? They also provide a more level "playing field" for social interaction, since nobody can see anyone's facial expression or other body language (...

Left unchecked, my skepticism can run rampant. My guideline for myself is to not let my skepticism sabotage relationships I would like to nurture. Sometimes that means letting people have their misconceptions and delusions unchallenged.

In a step-parent situation, the parents will often work very hard to make sure the child feels equal to the step-parent's biologically-related children, so that the child does not feel alienated or "second best". These efforts extend to controlling the language used to refer to the child, ...

I am HFA. I work, buy the groceries, drive, got married, etc. Usually I can pass as NT, but when someone has been working with me long enough they figure out that my perspective is very much not like theirs. Some of my wife's friends have figured it out, too, and one who had worked with kids on the ...

I remember Calculus 1 being fairly easy compared to Calculus 2, but I had also opted to take a "Pre-Calculus" class, which was just algebra similar in complexity to what we would be using in Calculus 1. So maybe that contributed to making Calculus 1 seem easy? All of the mathematics course...

It has worked well for me, in conjunction with the mantra: "Every job is training for your next job." When I switched career tracks, my first job in the new track was very much a "fake it 'til you make it" situation. On one hand I didn't do very well, and it only lasted about a y...

I'm in the same situation. It's hard to know what to share and what not to. It helps to try to think of what the other person might find interesting or relevant, to keep it fairly superficial, to use stock phrases when possible so they can use a familiar response to a familiar expression, and to fol...

It's fantastic that you figured that out from the underlying theoretical system! Kudos :) Like someone already said, don't stop figuring out new things. Maybe the next one will be a new discovery extending humanity's understanding of the field! I have something more modest, a hash table algorithm wh...
