I know lots of people and they hate me, even though I'm always nice. A second reason exists. The first reason is what people already said: Hate of difference. The second reason is something I had to learn the hard way: Many people interpret nice behavior as submission. They think in terms of rankin...

I hope I make it with all my marbles intact. Researchers say currently the best-known treatment for keeping the marbles intact for longer is frequent physical exercise, but apparently it only works if it's to the point of huffing and puffing, not only walking comfortably. Companies are stupid. They...

It’s taken 3 months, but I’m getting warm after interviews with 3 companies. Tomorrow I hear about my favorite. Hoping. oops, I totally forgot to say "Good luck" in a superficial and insincere manner. If this was a workplace and I was a new employee, I'd now be 1% closer to being chosen a...

But what if the bully then goes and complains to your boss? The answer to your question is the same as the answer to: What if the victim of bullying then goes and complains to the boss of the bully? The answer is that the bully usually does the bullying only verbally, and avoids creating any writte...

Qualified ND personnel are more difficult to find and manage than qualified NT personnel. Aha. In that case, instead of trying to employ and manage ND's, I guess a more realistic idea would be an organization that supports self-employed ND's to be successful at self-employment. One of the difficult...

And since they just do not answer me, i don't know the reason why it happens. If you want to know the reason, then people here in WP need to see a copy of your exact message (the exact wording you used), and then people here can tell you why it was rejected or ignored. For example, if we could read...

For example, at the bottom of this WP page: https://wrongplanet.net/look-work-four-things-absolutely-know/ It says: Autism Advantage operates in partnership with Expandability , a non-profit initially established in Silicon Valley to aid disabled programmers. Autism Advantage was developed out of Ex...

some of the worst advice in my life was the onslaught telling me to forget about web design. Good point. Does the OP want to go more in the direction of web design, or more in the direction of javascript and programming? The OP mentioned javascript, which overlaps both web and programming careers. ...

I disagree with the standard cliche advice of "You have to stand up for yourself". In my opinion, this usually fails, except if the bullying is only a very light case. What really works in reality is something awful that some people don't like to talk about: You have to bully the bully. Yo...

What's that? Is it the coping technique of trying to avoid NT's? This is my number 1 technique nowadays, but it's difficult. It has advantages and disadvantages. I don't recommend it, but I can't recommend any other solution either. I believe no ideal solution exists, and neurodiverse people are usu...

Programming is a really well paid job Programming CAN be a well-paid job, but I've also heard horror stories. For example, earlier this year, I overheard a manager saying: "Programmers aren't important. There are tons of programmers in India who need work, and they do it for a really cheap pri...

How many hours? It's debatable, but possibly ZERO hours per day. Think about whether or not you really want to choose this career. Sadly, programming or coding is a career that NT's place near the bottom of their bizarre social hierarchy. Are you sure that you want to choose a career that might caus...

Hello! I was wondering about something recently: Especially considering the many difficulties that neurodivergents have in getting or keeping jobs, is it realistically feasible to start up a new company or organization that is run by neurodivergents, and that ONLY employs neurodivergents, no neuroty...
