I have been thinking about this lately. I have a preschool-aged child who I am told is very popular. Her teachers have described her as "the alpha", etc. I have another, older, child who is not popular, with kids or adults. He has a handful of friends who are very loyal. I would have considered mys...

I don't play popular sports or anything. Other males just like me a lot. The only reason I'm known to females is because the males won't let them forget. I don't really parttake in activities. I don't do anything. I train A LOT faster than regular mortals but they don't know that. I mean, what they ...

It's getting harder the older I get to stand to be around people. NTs have such exaggerated personalities and make so much of small things. They talk a lot without contributing anything meaningful and are too easily excited. They laugh at the stupidest stuff, too, like crude humor. It's freaking an...

I personally have had a lot of issues with body language. Those "hints" people give by trying to talk to us without using words and the fact that I can't really process them since there's just too much information/data I need to work on, drives me mad sometimes. Though I have some little tricks tha...

Sometimes it is better just to say "sorry I was wrong", no matter how right or wrong you are. No, it isn't. You NEVER say you're wrong when you know you're right. I'd feel insulted if someone did that to me. You know you are right? How can you be so sure? There is no absolute. Ok, let's say you are...

I mean, would you like to be able to dodge bullets? Dodging bullets does sound pretty awesome. I thought it was some metaphor for leadership or something. I'm not completely sure because I'm still new to this but I think you could be special. How right does it feel to be able to dodge bullets and f...

From the replies, the best course looks like just taking note of what I was doing and simply don't do that again. You will do that again if you don't understand what you did wrong. He did nothing wrong. You are all normal. Please define 'wrong' and 'normal'. Wrong - what we were made to be able to ...

Me and this girl know each other; we're not really friends but I really like her. So we were working on something together (an art thing) so here's the convo: Her: "so should I use the same color you used, or it doesn't matter?" Me: "i don't know, the color I used doesn't exactly match our template...

Autism is normal. Curing it...yeah no.

I wouldn't trust a psychologist who believes ADHD exists, having firgotten to research normal people. Seriously, you have to admit you can't know what's weird if you don't know what's normal. Do as you feel. It can never go wrong.

Making friends would seem to be a relatively simple activity which everyone I know manages with ease yet for me it proves to be, as stated in the subject, a truly Herculean task. Unlike many of the other people posting here, I've never really been overtly bullied. I often felt in school that people...

I definitely say that the original post describes why I tend to start feeling bad about myself in certain social situations, but especially when I am on WrongPlanet or around a person with ASD more than anywhere else, surprisingly enough. The part of me that feeds into my low self-esteem will alway...

No, Erwin, I'm not really a pack leader. More like a young prodigy, who shows potential but lacks experience. I also have no idea what you mean by "dodging bullets" Claradoon, thank you for asking whether they give as many compliments to others. In this particular example, I didn't feel this way, b...

I do believe this is where "You can have no other gods besides me" comes ibto play. Giving too much praise to a person will make others feel uncomfortable. Why do you think people hate Justin Bieber?

Tell me more about how the people who diagnosed you as abnormal don't know what normal social skills are.
