I think we're attacked more cruely than NTs because they know one thing we mostly don't during childhood--conformity. I was cruely attacked during my childhood, and most of the kids now need my help to pass the graduate. Knowing conformity doesn't help an NT child who is being bullied. Bullies atta...

One thing my friends have told me is that everyone deals with being tortured by other kids and whatnot in their childhoods; while I won't argue with that, I honestly don't believe other NTs who are picked on are attacked as badly as we are. Thought I'd get some of your perspectives. How terribly an...

""Other-worldly" looking? I'm not sure what that means exactly so you tell me." To be perfectly honest, my first thought when looking at your photo was "that guy could be the son of British character actor Patrick Murray", which is actually a good thing, IMO.

You don't need to be a robot to think logically and not all emotionally driven people are illogical. No o...

Some do and some don't. Given that there are close to 6 billion NTs, it's only...logical...that there would be a great diversity of logic skills among such a huge pool of people.

My daughter is beautiful but I'm biased. I do think there's something to the "otherworldliness" theory though. And then there was the TV show "America's Next Top Model" which had an Aspie contestant. Yeah for her!

I had to delurk to post on this. I've been lurking about a week after finding this through googling. I have excellent recall of my childhood, both of good times and bad times and of how things felt, back to about age 5. I think this strength of recall is genetic. My own mom has it and remembers her ...
