Like many here, I often found it awkward to socialize for decades. But, I discovered when I changed my gender presentation from male to female, I could do things automatically and the other person would respond without confusion. Could I have been learning the wrong gender clues? Maybe my appearance...

I posit there is a hard wired friend or foe routine hard wired into humans. It is very useful to know whether someone you meet is a friend or foe without thinking about it. IFF Indentification Friend or Foe was developed during WW2 for aircraft. You don't want to shoot down your own airplanes. There...

An issue is having the proper print driver for your printer. I've recall having a Canon printer that didn't work for a while until they finally provided a driver for my semi-old operating system. Similarly, I have an old Nikon D70 camera. They have RAW software, but only for Win 10 and 11, so I boug...

I think dating sites only work for a few. They may be more useful if you are looking for something specific and are willing to start a long distance relationship and move to someplace new. Or live in a big city with a huge dating pool like Phiilly, Boston, or NYC. But not a smaller city like Hartfor...

Have you considered rooming with an elderly guy that could use come assistance keeping the place up?
Or maybe someone who is lonely and just needs someone to listen to him?

That's the message of the ad. But the OP is asking about intonation. Or am I being too literal?

Yes, I was curious if people with autism are aware of speaking patterns used here.
Are they too obvious?
Just right?
What is intonation?

We just gave the agent who was representing us copies of some financial documents he han no trouble finding a lender on our behalf. It was like Oh, Wow, plenty of money. You know you can buy a bigger house. Just saying. Later on he said that if we wanted, we could park a boat in the driveway. No nas...

We do have hard wired social responses. Or at least most humans do. I've discovered that when I interact with other people, say in a store, I'll receive and respond social clues faster than I can realize that I have done that. It is over by the time I realize what I have done. I can process things q...

I knows someone who celebrated his 25th wedding anniversary after having a really weird failed first marriage.
2nd time worked out much better for him even though he was in his 30s. Everyone is his family is really short.

Are social cues the same as body language Anyone? I would say that social cues include body language, but they can also be verbal. It is more common for females to use long complicated sentences with deliberate intonation when a guy might answer with a short "yes" or "no." This ...

Maybe you are doing too much work. I was so good at answering the phone at work that I basically did all the work for a group of four people! And other departments would send tough customers my way. Maybe you need to pay more attention to the long time workers, if there are any, to better gauge the ...

Where I live there are no accomodations for autistic adults. When you turn 18 your are "cured" and many services just go away! I got this info first hand from a lady who has mental health issues about services going away. For twenty years there was a privately run jobs training organizatio...
