 Forum: General Autism Discussion   Topic: Is adherence to rules a sign of ASD?

I don't think it's necessarily a sign of an ASD. It could be the result of strong rigid morals. I've known some aspies that were quite rebellious. I haven't known too many NTs that follow rules rigidly though. Being a stickler for rules or having strong rigid (inflexible) morals is definitely an AS...

Yes.. it's called "the internet." We're allowed to shop anywhere everyone else is. As for finding pants that you like, it's best done in person in a store so you can feel the fabric and try them on. Once you find exactly what you like, it's pretty easy to go online and buy more of the same for typic...

Hypersensitivity to chemical smells is an ADD/ADHD trait, fyi.

I'm merely thinking out loud, as I know approximately jack s**t about any of this, but: (Well, ok, that's not entirely true - the following is based on knowing a little bit about some of this from reading books that included sections on visualization and reprogramming your own thoughts/mind etc - I'...

My hypersensitivity to chemical smells isn't as strong as yours, so it's not nearly as problematic. About the worst smell I can think of is walking passed/down the soap & detergent aisle of Costco - the smells of laundry soaps and whatever else is there just becomes sooo strong and overbearing t...

Sounds very OCD to me, but could also be stimming or both.

Try CBT again?

Earliest memory of it would be at 5 years old in Kindergarten.

What if you just told them the truth as you've posted it here? Tell 'em you can't handle being there for the weekend and so you'd really rather not & won't be attending. Let them know you don't mean anything rude by it, but that you haven't been feeling well and you know that if you attend you'r...

I, too, listen to the radio on headphones. It works wonders. I tend to keep the volume very low so that I can still hear people around me for safety reasons. If I listened loud (I never do.) then I'd likely be worried about not hearing someone I might want to avoid. Sometimes I switch to a guided me...

lol I was banned numerous times from a forum I used to post on years ago.. in hindsight, I deserved to be banned for my behaviour. Thing was, at the time, in the moment, for the most part I had no clue what it was about me and what I'd post that would trigger such fury from others. Now that I've fig...

I can relate. I've definitely been taken advantage of in the past due to these same AS traits. But now that I'm more aware of them and how to manage myself, I'm not nearly as easy a target. Also, for those who tend to always ask for favours and never reciprocate by offering help with something - eve...

It could be the lack of eye contact, if you tend to do that. Might help to try making eye contact more often. It could be an "expressionless," face if you tend to do that. Might help to smile or look interested/curious - practice these things in front of a mirror so you don't come across as looking ...

Yeah, I have these, too. They change every so often to something new. Could be movie/pop culture quotes, could be song lyrics, might have picked up a word or phrase at total random.. but recently I've been using a few phrases & words I've picked up from one of my closest friends. Mostly "awesome...

Most of my interests have dramatically changed over the years.. but some have just evolved. ie w/ reading, I've read a lot, then not so much, then read a lot of texts for school, then not so much.. then read a lot again - but completely different subject matter due to different interests more recent...

I haven't had anything I'd really call a relationship. I guess you could say I haven't been able to form one, but on the flipside, I've yet to really try, either. There are a few other life goals I want/need to accomplish before I bother. Work/career/financial stability & complete independence, ...

Sounds like he's behind the times. The things he said don't mean you're not on the spectrum. Have you done any reading to confirm that you are? I highly recommend "The complete guide to asperger's syndrome," by Dr. Tony Attwood. I'd do some reading and research if you haven't, then get a second opin...
