when i was a teenager i had panic attacks a few times - always in highly populated areas. i could usually get myself to "safety", however it was common that psychosomaticism would end up crippling my hamstrings by the time i got there. meltdowns however are much more of a: "HOW HARD IS IT TO JUST f*...

if someone bullies, cheats or manipulates you because they think you're weak, it's up to you to balance it out and make them regret ever giving you justification for retribution. you can take the moral highground and ignore them too ofcourse, but people that feed on the vulnerable don't usually stop...

Lots of us have social problems, so what? And alcohol is never an excuse. Is it a reasonable excuse when someone beats their wife? How about when they kill a child when drink driving? I said it was easy to lose sight of perspective when you're trolling the internet, off your tits. you can't just tu...

I feel abit bad for the guy, true he was being a dickhead but according to the papers he's also an alcoholic recluse because of his social problems. it's easy to chastise someone, but i'm sure more than most of the people on this forum know what it's like to be victimized and it's easy to lose persp...

Ah, but you're comparing a neurological manifestation in one group/person to a behavioural manifestation in another group/person. Whether activity of mirror neurons is increased or decreased doesn't automatically decide upon the general social success or failure and personal preferences of an indiv...

I have a feeling that the highest levels of business and government are packed with successful sociopaths. dick cheney is a good example xD? He makes everything sound so smooth and collected, even if he's suggesting the systematic murder of all first born puppy-dogs. machiavellianism is an essentia...

Could someone *not* list the differential criteria for Autism vs. Sociopathy, and instead steer us toward the criteria that render the two MUTUALLY-EXCLUSIVE? I am not sure what you mean :| if you mean "neurologically speaking, what makes it impossible for someone to be both a textbook psychopath a...

The difference between a lack of empathy and the appearance of a lack of empathy doesn't render Autism and Sociopathy mutually-exclusive. One individual can very well meet the criteria for both, although someone who's baldly-proclaiming to have both online for no apparent reason in all honesty I wo...

Compulsive lying has nothing to do with either conditions. Many autistic children are compulsive liars and many high-functioning sociopaths never have to lie at all, they just tenderly nitpick what they say and how they say it. Lying is not synonymous with psychological or social manipulation. In sc...

AS and psychopathy are practically mutually exclusive, from a neuro-science point of view - despite similar reasoning systems. Unless you're lying about everything you just typed, the chances of ASPD being applicable are practically nil, though ASPD/sociopathy and psychopathy are not synonyms, so it...

Your body can learn to do anything if you practice, s'long as it's not physically or psychosomatically impaired - not to mention that poor motor skills are not inherent to everyone on the autistic spectrum. Couple that with abstract, visual thought patterns and alot of time to study, and you've got ...

randomized controlled trials involving treatments - smoking X number of joints - levels 1 2 3 and control (no ganja) - results of RCTs prove cognitive impairment during period when THC is in the system. I should have specified. What I mean is that while cognitive functioning may slow down, one's ab...
