I can't imagine it being any different for anybody else..... And this is exactly where the problem lies. Most people assume that the way they think is the way everyone else thinks because they understand how it is possible to think any differently. I think completely without words and I can't reall...

Of the four species you mentioned, only earwigs are insects. Anyhow, I don't really like roaches. I like stick insects, ladybugs, beetles, bees, and a lot of other insects. Non-insect arthropods I like include spiders and crustaceans. I like all the crustaceans too. The only arachnids I don't like ...

Some people are repulsed by some insects but not others. List (provide a picture too) the insects that repulse you and the ones that you like. I'm always inspired when I see Bear Grylls eating every single edible insect he comes across and I aspire to be able to do that too but I cringe just thinkin...

Is for me. I hate the sticky feeling though. Sticky hands and dry hands I hate but dirty doesn't bother me at all. Filthy clothes I dont mind either. I think its a matter of seeing things differently to people who are repulsed by this kinda thing. Dead bodies and maggots don't bother me at all but c...

I know what you mean. I hate people hugging me but I never say anything about it cuz I dont wanna make a big deal about it. I wonder if everyone hates this and if so why do people hug other people?

The disabilities are only in social areas Not true. High functioning autistic people I'm talking about. When I say social areas I mean areas that require socializing so that often includes work and a wide range of other things too. Still not true. When autistic people have trouble with work or othe...

Erm... wow. Actually social impairment is a side-effect, not a central aspect, of autistic differences in perception and cognition. Those differences cause other impairments too not just social ones. For instance: I should talk for myself then. My disabilities are only in social areas. When I say s...

The disabilities are only in social areas which does cause problems since there aren't many alternatives to living in society but I'm fairly certain it is a blessing in disguise. Take a good look at the state of the world today. If the majority of humans could think freely and deeply would the world...

Seeing someone else suffering and not really getting too broken up about it = lack of Sympathy . Having a close friend or loved one experiencing an emotional crisis and not really noticing or getting too concerned because you're wrapped up in your own interests, or just don't know what you ought to...

People who get labelled autistic may just have a neurochemical makeup that happens to make them outwardly different while people labelled neurotypical have only invisible differences. People still to this day ignorantly assume that apart from a few exceptions (i.e. downsyndrome, autism, schizophreni...

I think I lack what neurotypical people call empathy. When I see bad things happen to other people it bothers me but I usually resolve the issue in my mind by thinking about all the possible solutions to their problem and for this reason I don't feel bad about it. If I don't resolve the issue in my ...

I have a wide range of symptoms associated with autism but I have a lot of contradictory symptoms too. Autistic people are supposed to be good with the details but struggle with the big picture. I'm the other way around I can't learn anything unless I first setup the scaffolding so I can see the big...
