 Forum: General Autism Discussion   Topic: Are NTs illogical? Or do they use different logic to us?

Horses return to a burning barn. Some dogs mourn their owners until they die, as do some humans. Sage grouse completely ignore predators during the mating dance. Beaver looking for a new pond are oblivious to everything else, more or less in a state of shock when not near water. However, they can ma...

I have often had my ideas stolen e.g. at work meetings when I quietly state a solution to a problem, then someone (usually a man I'd sad to say) overhears my idea and loudly presents the idea as their own. Then he is celebrated and cheered for 'having such a brilliant idea.' When it was mine all al...

Let's consider the animal's needs too. Perhaps the mother has noticed that the cat is not really happy there. Many animals are treated like brainless automatons, and develop "behaviour problems." Only a small minority of pet owners appreciate them for their own intelligence and unique abil...

Dear_one thank you I am guessing that if you found yourself as the only expert in a group that really needed to know about your topic and was clearly willing to listen, you would feel no difficulty being relaxed and "more yourself", amIright? Good guess. I have taught a few classes and do...

You've got about ten years. Why not make friends with your local wildlife that the cat can't get to?

Sometimes I get lucky in a social situation, and all it needs is what I have, usually through imitation. I think that I normally walk around with a lot more clarity than average regarding quite a few technical subjects.

^^ There are also thousands of charities that support people in need without regard to Autism, and more thousands of causes to improve the general welfare, help animals, reduce pollution, etc. Publishing to benefit one of those would help them, and not waste your work. That's a double win in my books.

If I do so well that in my 60's I'm taking selfies in an expensive white suite, white hat, white hair, white beard, horn-rimmed glasses (looking like a skinny Colonel Sanders does a Dos Equis commercial or an globe-trotting James Randi or random people asking me for Connor McGregor's autograph), ha...

I often was unsettled by lessons seeming to begin in the middle. I didn't feel like I understood materials until I had learned just what happens at the tip of a crack that may or may not extend. Without basic understanding, people can go badly wrong going by what "looks right." For many ye...

My head is stuck in the past. These days, I won't even approach the US border. I have a tendency to make jokes when stressed, and the TSA people are the kind who hate all humour, having been made fun of in school for not getting jokes. On the bright side, I once drove a friend to the airport and we ...

These days, with the PTSD, I can seldom sleep enough to enjoy travel even the first day. However, I had travelled with others before, and done a solo flight at 14 with many stopovers and re-bookings to dodge weather on the way home within the country. So, it did not seem strange to fly with a bicycl...

The first typed manuscript was "Huckleberry Finn" which probably required Mark Twain to transcribe at least the first section before the riverboat collision. He was worried that the rural ambiance needed a more formal presentation, and he was also heavily investing in a typewriter company....

I wrote a book and I am also a content creator Wrote a book? Wow! Was it published? I haven't published it. I wanted to. I even had Dr. Tony Attwood review the manuscript for me. He and I are friends. He loved it and told me to use his words as a review and he sent me the information to his publish...

If the conversation is stimulating, at least I gain some ideas. More often I have to endure rambling, repetitious, half-baked presentations that are just frustrating. In one group, an old lady was planning to buy a camera, so I asked what she wanted to photograph. She went on for over five minutes b...

I have learned to ration my human interaction to an average of an hour per day, and avoid high doses. I have been known to use an egg timer or other device to remind people of how much they are dominating the conversation. Sometimes, I'm tempted to sum up many paragraphs with a short sentence, rathe...
