I was taught not to do this in social skills group but I don't remember why you're not supposed to do it if I was ever told. Also, I think it was on a list of social skills or social mistakes autistic people make on the internet too. I laugh at my jokes but I've also seen plenty of NTs who are soci...

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.

I'm interested in this topic. I'm a researcher studying the sociology of autism, specifically the concept of identity in people on the autism spectrum. Oh and I'm NT with many aspie friends and family. Okay so my question is, does this being alone with no significant relationships feel "bad"? Is th...

You will do that again if you don't understand what you did wrong.

He did nothing wrong. You are all normal.

It's probably a mechanism we developed to mold other people's behavior into some sort of social standard, and I'll probably always be laughed at. From the replies, the best course looks like just taking note of what I was doing and simply don't do that again. It still makes me angry and very frustr...

It happens to me. I get embarrassed by it. I try to learn from the situation. I also try not to take it personally. People expect you to act normal. I can't act normal sometimes. Some people are going to laugh at me. I try to learn what is socially acceptable in each situation and do that so that I...

No, it's not you, it's them. For some reason, society encourages self indulgence and self pity in vast majority, but those who are the leaders are suspiciously lacking in these attributes. I suspect the society is rigged so that few can easily rule the many. Our free will is not something we are at...

Don't talk to a girl if you feel awkward to. It feels awkward for a reason.

I think it's good that someone points out the difference between psychopathy and antisocial PD what usually is getting ignored. Because there is a difference and many just have one of them and just few really have both and that's a very dangerous combination. But every one can develope antisocial t...

Hi, I'm diagnosed ADHD and I've finally self-diagnosed myself as Aspie. I'm trying to figure out how both conditions would affect each other. I know this combo is not uncommon but there doesn't seem to be some section/sticky for ADHD and Aspie together on wrongplanet. The ADHD meds don't do too muc...

It's generally normal. However, if it's uncontrollable, it's being induced by someone.

It took me a while to admit this to myself, but I think it's true. Perhaps not full-blown narcissistic personality disorder but it's certainly not good, and I'd like to see if I can make it go away. Or maybe it's just insecurity...? I definitely feel empathy (but then there are times where people/f...

I feel like a phobia magnet.
