But when you have social anxiety like me you typically dwell on this sort of thing for weeks. Any NT with social anxiety will tell you that.

Trust me, I know. I tend to dwell far longer than a couple of weeks over these kind of things.

In German class in High School, I wrote everything in upper case. Took the teacher a year to figure out what I was doing :-) Also, in the same class, I figured out a way to not get questioned - I'd look the teacher straight into her eyes while she was speaking and exactly when she finished and looke...

I had never heard of the Sally-Anne test, so I looked it up and took it.

My guess is that either it was gossip or a dirty joke or something else not to do with you.
Or something like "See that woman? Doesn't she look exactly like the nut who worked here last year".

I supposedly once said in my defence "It doesn't hurt on HIM", so for me it didn't help to know that the same action would hurt me

I guess it depends on how little you were... I know I pulled my brothers (5 years younger) hair quite a lot, my mother told me she found us with me sitting with big chunks of his hair in my hands, and i once stabbed him with a pencil in his back, I believe he still has a dark spot from that. Kids do...

Just guessing, but I suppose there are different ways of telling those storys, as for the fish, eg - Just telling what happens, without emotions, judgements etc - Telling it with empathy for the man, but also acknowledging that it's in a cats nature to steal the fish, but hating the bird - Telling i...

I don't usually find it neither formal nor personal, just weird using names in texts or emails. Again, my boss does that. "Hi Mats, what's your opinion on ...", "Thanks Mats". If it was sent to a group of people, sure, maybe, but when sent to only me? I just don't understand... /...

I'm still trying to understand my feelings and how to express them. A couple of things When I'm aware of being sad, upset or just down, I'm at the bottom. Talking about it then makes me cry, which seems to scare people. I often smile when I hear something sad or bad, I reckon it's me trying to show ...

I also mostly collect ideas and information, not things. That said, I have 5 sewing machines and a pretty decent collection of comic books. But it's for using/reading, not collecting just for the sake of collecting. With a few exceptions. And I've almost always been able to wait for a decent price t...

I always postpone doing things like cleaning, doing the dishes etc until it's this massive task that makes it even harder to deal with. I'm also not good at throwing things away, not because I get attached, but one never knows when a bottle of expired wood glue or a dull saw blade may be of some use...

Yep, or rather I used to have problems with them, or rather with FB. I used Twitter as a corporate platform when I ran my own business, but I don't see the use now. I used to spend waay too much time on FB trying to keep up. I guess my problem was similar to my reading problems, ie not beeing able t...

When walking in a crowded area, like the subway, I am almost like dancing around. I think this is due to my habit of walking quite fast, and my ability to look ahead and make plans on the spot. So I tend to notice gaps in the crowd, or trolleys or other obstacles up to 10 m away. So I turn and pass ...

My humor is a mix of word play, dark, and borderline evil.
I like to think that I'm pretty good at judging when and where and to whom to make certain jokes, so in most cases I've not got in any trouble.
