I was surfing the internet I saw something that said introverts and shy people prefer forests and I want to see if this is true for Autistics as well because a lot of us tend to be shy and introverted as well.

I love mountains and being in the forest. That's why I'm so happy I live in the Pacific Northwest now. I feel secure and at peace when walking in the woods.

Many people like the peace and quiet of wild places if they can find somewhere away from the incessant noise of the modern world. For me the coast away from towns and cities is my preferred place although I also enjoy being in the mountains and the woods. Despite living somewhere as crowded as the UK it is still possible to find quiet wild places. I don't think it is necessarily an autistic or introversion thing though.

Forests and mountains and such are good for people who want to take a break from people and man-made noise.

Which do you mean: that introverts prefer mountains (subject line) or forests (op)? I really prefer... neither. I'm not an outdoorsy/nature person. At all. Give me cities, not towns, large cities. Nature can be nice to look at or learn about, but that's the end of my interest.

Not dyspraxic ones like me, it always makes me feel like I'm going to fall down the mountain.

I like forests though.

When I was ill with social anxiety the only time I left the house was to walk my dog in the forest. This isn't healthy, though or typical autism, it's what I did when I was ill.

I like forest and mountains, that is why I choose to live there. I don't mind the cities, just so long as it is a short excursion. It breaks up the routine. I just chose not to live there.

Yes me too. I live in a built up area, but can take a short car drive out to the countryside at weekends and enjoy the wilderness.

I don't particularly enjoy climbing up mountains, I prefer a cable car if possible, but I do enjoy the view.

I live in the Pennines. Can't call them mountains, but I'm surrounded by hills here and not a lot else. Personally I prefer the sea, but hills and mountains are a close second. If you have mountains on one side and the sea on the other, then you've hit the jackpot. Parts of North Wales are like that.

I love forests that is why I love Northern New England states especially Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine as well as Northwestern states like Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming as well. New England and Northwestern states are my favorite. For Canada Quebec is my favorite province. I think mountains are cool as well.

Correction... when I mentioned the sea I wasn't even thinking about crowded beaches. I was thinking about rocks and crashing waves. But the beaches in Northumberland are quite amazing... miles and miles of empty beaches... and a few castles.
