We can either try to "fit in" with the rest of society, or we can be so egocentric that we can't be bothered.
I choose the actor. I observe NT's. I listen to their socializing. I practice it, so in social situations I can just emulate/mimic what is expected.
It isn't natural for me, but it enables me to "fit in".
It is VERY tiring and draining, but at least we can appear like them even though it is an act. Like being on the stage.
They can't see it is emulation, and so we are accepted.

When I saw the title I thought it might have been about Vermeer and the method he is believed to have employed for his works. I have to admit I was a little disappointed when it wasn't, but I do love Mr. Bean, always enjoyable. :)
