Weight Of Memory, when I got my assesement I had a similar experience like you. That my diagnosis was based on what I told them about my own experience and not on how other people see me. Luckely, the quoted psychiatrist had nothing to do with me and my assesement.

Twiglet, I have a similar relationship to special interests. I have them for a period of time and then I focus on something else. After that I move on to something different until I go back to that first special interest again. I would say I have 3-4 strong interests that I alternate between. I find...

I read a post on instagram by a self-proclaimed narcissist saying that autistic people makes him very uncomfortable because he can't read them or know what they are thinking and that makes it hard to push the right buttons to get the response he as a naricissist wants. Before he found this out he di...

I can walk backwards while talking. I think most people can do it. If anything I would think some autistic people might have a problem with it.

I'm confused. :silent: Per MBTI I have a strong introversion preference.

I refered to the fact that new comers are supposed to make a post where they introduce themselves to the community. It was meant as a joke.

I live in the united states. The way your country has streamlined the process is really awesome. It's much different here. How do you feel now that you've been diagnosed? I have mixed feelings and do a lot of re-evaluating of my former life. Who I am etc. I struggle a bit with actually identify as ...

Welcome to WP! I can relate to your feelings about writing a "Hi! I'm new!" post. But, maybe it's for the greater good and a way to weed out any introverts? :wink:

I was formally diagnosed earlier this year. During the last 2-3 years I did several online tests, included the ones Double Retired provides links to in his post. None of them showed me to be autistic. On some of them I was not even close. I wouldn't write off being autistic from a "neurotypical...

I read a statement from a psychiatrist saying something along the line: "People think they will get an autism diagnosis based on their own perception of being different from other people. That's not how it works. You get a diagnosis if other people perceive you as different." That's an ext...
