Wow, this is quite interesting. I wouldn't have expected that NTs' emotion recognition would worsen at a crucial point in their identity development (through forming a group identity in cliques).

Interesting article. What happens if they don't 'grow out of it' though?

I found it interesting too.

Adversarial, I was a bit upset by the light hearted tone they used for that comment. "luckily for parents it passes" I understand its an article for the general populations but it still seems inapproprate, especially as the second part of the article is about autism where *it will not pass*.

I might write a letter to the editor about it.

The article was very interesting. I wonder tho if this would even make a person worse when they have AS.

Maybe thats right.

The article say though even NT's get worse after the brain reorganizes itself after puberty.

Strange article. I think that many NT adolescents either become almost aspie or they become really strong NTs. Or that is what I have observed with people I know. :?

Thinking... Could I be having a second pubity at my age?


Ok, am joking... But it makes me think.... It could be that some who were assessed as teenagers may have been wrongly diagnosed?

I can't find anything about it on that link, it's just articles about technology.

But anyway, this could prove rather interesting. I'm not an NT, but I still felt like I was more autistic when I was aged 12-14 than any other time in my life. What I mean by this is I done things that were typical for a more severe autistic teen but were out of character for me as an individual. They were things I knew better not to do as a child and know better not to do as an adult.

I might not have answered the thread properly because I couldn't find the information on the link.

You can't find anything about it on the link because it was posted 14 years ago.

Oops, I didn't look at the date. I just assumed it was a recent thread.

This is why I dislike old threads being bumped.
