Nice letter. Both simple and intimate.

Usually, when someone gets angry at you and brings up a past event, they're likely angry because of an accumulation of events, not just one. That being said, I really don't understand why your friend would be so angry. It's not directly just an NT/Aspie thing because we all try to show concern for t...

Ladies and gentlemen, I have the solution. Blink. I remember a study they did on the "uncanny valley", the displeasure felt upon recognition of a robot's inhuman traits, and it had something to do with the facial expressions. I attribute this largely to the unauthentic look of the eyes in the robot....

Yeah, I've been trying to say this for awhile now; not just about math but about our education system. It's too bad our culture looks at it differently. As a result, our education system suffers drastically because the arts suffer drastically. There is no creativity or imagination in the way we appr...

Shoot, that sucks. I feel your pain. I, too, come from a low-income family with bad credit history. Luckily, I might get hired next week. It'll be a manual labor job but it'll help pay rent and food. Try to look around for some part time jobs. Do you guys have a career/job center? Try looking around...

Yeah, I can especially relate to how people view me. I picked up a little bit of Marlon Brando in my persona after watching some old movies and people think I'm NT when I'm only acting the part. Being polite. Method acting.

I still like COD. I never did like Black Ops or World at War but I am a fan of the Modern Warfare series and the original. That being said, Activision signed it's own death warrant when it came up with the brilliant idea to release a COD game every single year. I don't think Bobby Kotick knows what ...

I haven't officially been tested but I would assume I'm slightly above average (100-110 range, possibly 120 at most). Not enough to get into MENSA but better than normal, if that counts for anything.

Yeah. While I have unknowingly done/said things people consider rude, I try to be polite around places.

In public, people always think I'm a nice guy, but I'm just polite.

This might've been posted already, but it's good to watch. It may help better understand the dynamics of intercommunication between NTs.

The brain tends to crave less novelty as you get older.

Though, we live in very stimulating times, therefore, I suggest you try out different genres and/or games.

Also, the idea is to psychologically develop a persona. So, think of a Navy Seal. Think about becoming one. Then, become one. Now, I don't mean ACTUALLY going out to become one. Rather, you take that role and adopt the traits of a Navy Seal. Thus, you push yourself harder everytime you work. You'll ...

Don't tell me that. Tell it to yourself man.

"You're going to get fit." Tell that to yourself but don't tell anyone that you're going to do it. Ignore people when it comes to anything fitness related. It'll keep you motivated because you aren't doing it for their expectations but for yourself. Trust me, keep it to yourself and keep fit. You wo...

Yes, the idea is to get protein after a work out and during your meals. So, try to get 20+ grams of protein per meal and after working out. Lean meats (chicken and fish) are great. Soy is also a good alternative, especially if you dislike meat. For whey protein, nothing fancy is needed. Just go buy ...
