I found that a few sentences described me, but others did not. Well, actually, I found that a few sentences were true of me, not necessarily a great description.

NTs will be considered as having ADD/ADHD (because, comparativle, they will difficulty in concentrating in a topic). However, they will not have social problems, because NTs adapt to society. That's contrary to how they actually act in autistic-dominant situations even today, though. They do freque...

Sounds interesting. Asking if people are interested before continuing is a good idea in face-to-face interactions and on the phone or when using IM, but in forum posts it should be dropped.

Those are interesting. I might try them.

Not (or mildly) prone to burnout or ability fluctuations. Senses are normal except hyper/hypo issues and probably synesthesia. Conceptual thinking. That's how I fit on yours. I suggest logical/hard/cold/robotic vs. emotional/artistic/intuitive. (I think I described that badly.) Some people seem to n...

I don't understand what it is you're saying you want to do.

You do sound like you have some traits. Partly seconding what Sirunus says, but I don't think it HAS to be this way. If you really want to help us, when you see a "weirdo" or a "space case" or a "retard," don't mock them or judge them. When someone else mocks them and you're there, point out that th...

Not how good they are. Just how stable. If you say they don't change, that's because they don't change; doesn't matter if you can always do calculus or never know what a number is. I'm not asking for how good you are, but for how much it varies. Mine are pretty stable. My executive function predicta...

That's interesting that you're able to read in a dream...a lot of times people have difficulty with that, because apparently the sections of the brain that are responsible for that are still asleep. (I find that sometimes I can read things, but then they shift and it's very irritating--and sometime...

Um, if autistic people have our own culture, why haven't I heard about it?

Some Aspies find that grocery stores are hell on earth. I derive such an incredible enjoyment from a certain one... I'm really hoping it can stay in business... funny how intense a love that can be. But it does have a dark side: a cafe I went to a few times changed hands. I was so incredibly disapp...

Some autism has been proven to be non-genetic. Also, have you ever heard of a de novo mutation? It means instead of just getting half your mother's genes and half your father's, you just kind of make up part of the sequence. OMG what?! where can i learn these?! no i havent heard of that.. i'm a mut...

I find talking on the phone difficult. If the results are promising I might do another poll asking about cell phones versus landlines-- what do you think? (For me, I often find myself listening to a cell phone conversation on speakerphone where I can't get away. This is really, really painful. Incre...

Are you sure you aren't an Aspie? There's no point in getting a diagnosis if you're functioning, but since you want to understand yourself, there's clearly a point to you looking into the matter. Callista, not being able to make phone calls IS autism. Can you call someone on the phone? (Technically,...

How do you learn? I learn very well from reading books or articles on subjects I'm trying to learn about. I also benefit when said texts include pictures. Although more neurologically typical people have failed to teach me to knit, an autistic (whose body language I read instantly and easily-- paren...
