Bottom line: the literal mind uses language to exchange information honestly, and I would even say, with a benevolent desire to inform. That's where the factual communication hits a snag: when the other person's use of language is disingenuous. That's what has tripped me up throughout my life. I us...

Excellent questions and it's what I've been wondering since I arrived on this forum. Why should NT behavior be the model others should pattern themselves after? "Normal" can be mean 2 different things. It can refer to whatever the norm is, whatever is typical or average, or it can be a reference to ...

I don't really want to take revenge on people...sometimes I feel that way but I wouldn't do it. More so I want people to see things from my perspective. Punishing or hurting someone just to pay them doesn't accomplish that, because they still don't understand. I can let a lot of things go but someti...

Well I don't even know if I have AS or autism so I can't really give my opinion on the article. But I related to a lot of it, especially this: An important corollary to this is that just because the autistic person just said “but they shouldn’t feel that way”, doesn’t mean that they themselves won’t...

Those pseudo-psychologists who claim that bullies tend to be insecure and are masking their insecurity through aggression - that's just feel-good rhetoric, nothing more. That was exactly the kind of philosophy that had me deluding myself for years, that there were no truly mean people in the world,...

I do. I don't mimic as much as I used to but I still find myself doing it to some extent. I've realized I mimic the style of the way other people express themselves, but not the content of what they are expressing. So what comes through is still "me" but it's just coming through a filter, mirroring ...

I highly suggest you google search the results for Indigo / Crystal children and or " bundle charts astrology" and you will be interested in what this has to say. For quite some time now, I pondered whether there was a link between specific looking birth charts and having a disorder. Well it seems ...

Do you have trouble going places (especially new places) alone? Do you prefer to go somewhere on your own, or with someone? I have trouble figuring out the logistics of places. I am pretty good at finding my way road-wise. But figuring out things like where to park, where to get in line, or where to...

I can hear TVs, lamps or most any electrical device. I thought that was normal.

I notice things like pictures hanging slightly crooked or building construction being out of square. I have a hard time accepting that things on this planet do not line up at precise angles.

I don't want to treat all NT's like one big category but yeah the majority of people I encounter seem to have their own issues. It is not like they are all paragons of normalcy and virtue. I see a lot of NT behavior I would not want to emulate. Even the most well-intentioned people can be invasive, ...

I am new here and never heard this term before: neuro-typical. I am baffled by the all the talk about NTs...NTs this, NTs that. Being typical in any sense, neurologically or otherwise, does not make someone a model human being. It only means they are in the majority, the lowest common denominator of...

I've come to realize alot of people are in fact mean. It did take a long time but I understand now.

It took me a long time to understand this too. I never wanted to believe that people could be deliberately mean. I would just tell myself it was a misunderstanding.
