I agree.
I think this is part of the reason why people think you can "get over it" with time. People only see children and teens with it, but hardly ever adults, so they think that autism is something you completely grow out of once you're an adult.

do you often feel that people are so unpredictable to the point where you have a natural fear of others?

nope, because I am more unpredictable than any of them

do you find yourself being submissive because of this fear.

nope, I'm always very dominant

I hate school but I don't think it has affected me much (except for the bullying in middle school and the fact that the elementary school teachers made me develop ODD) because I didn't follow orders nor I listened.

I am fairly good at getting people's thoughts; but I can't get their emotions at all.
Thoughts and emotions don't always coincide.
A person might think "I hate them" and act like they hated someone; but they may actually love that person.

I don't get offended easily and when I get angry at people it usually doesn't last more than a few hours. But this doesn't mean I forgive them. It just means their offense is not great enough for me to hold a grudge. On the other hand when I get offended or really angry (that doesn't happen often) i...

Prehistory: no one would have noticed nor cared (skipping a lot of centuries) Under the Roman empire: forcibly closed in a house Middle ages: burned alive as a witch or exorcised From after the middle ages to early 20th century: closed in an asylum being studied by "experts" who were crazier than me

I started doing dishes this summer because my mother gives me money when I do the dishes. I've never heard her complain about how I do dishes. It's actually another way for me to do something instead of my homework. Almost everything is better than doing homework.

I used to forget to do it a lot in the past but ever since I was 13/14 I've been doing that every day and even more than once a day sometimes. That's because I became paranoid about germs and dirty and I couldn't stand anymore people's bad breath. Bad breath is disgusting and I'll refuse to talk to ...

I wear band t-shirts. I have one of AC/DC, one of Linkin Park and one of Slipknot. I plan on buying one of Bullet For My Valentine soon.
I also like spiky bracelets and black leather jackets.
Except these clothes, I don't really care about the rest.

I don't think there is any correlation between anime and autism and I don't think that autistics are more likely to be otakus. Almost all my friends are obsessed with anime. None of them has AS traits. One is dyslexic. Two of them have depression. Three of them are NTs (maybe weird or introverted bu...

Well, in my case is partly true. I am very good at algebra, astronomy and geology.
... But I suck at geometry, physics and chemistry.
I am mediocre at biology.

My father was really good at math. More than I am. He still has papers full of numbers and counts in his room :lol:

Once I got into an argument about rape online. The person I was discussing with said that I still went to high school so I couldn't really know anything about rape. Yeah, because high school students or younger people can't be raped and don't risk to be raped, do they? :lol:

They make me kinda paranoid. Once I received one at 1 am.

To be honest, I need no alone time. Whether I am with people or not makes no difference for me unless they are interesting people. But most people are boring, so when I am around them I just put on my earphones and start daydreaming. Social interaction is not and has never been exhausting to me, I j...
