I wish it did. Everything would be so much simpler.
No, everything would be much more complex -- even chaotic -- as physical principles changed constantly.

Many of my features "correlate" with someone who would remain a virgin throughout life.

That I am not a virgin, and obtained loving experiences at close to the "normal" age----means that the "causation" didn't manifest itself.

That ratio is considered normal. It's taught in art school.

LOL.

Teasing: Which features? The glasses? (profile pic)
Seriously: Glad you had some good experiences. Age has definitely made me more grateful for past experiences, even those that were rough at the time.

Fondly,
Your fellow four eyes

Yup. I was taught it in 8th grade.
Fun fact is that when the proportions seem to differ from that norm, it is usually an illusion.
Hairstyle, facial hair, makeup, or just that the person tilts his/her head slightly up or down can make it seem like the eyes are more narrow, the forehead lower, and so on.

Yup.

Eyes are 1/5 the breadth of the face. The nose is the centre 5th. Then 1/5 on either side of the eyes.

It's all mathematics.

I believe Anime and Manga tend to use "exaggerated" features for dramatic effect.

My first intro to the genre was buying an autographed first edition of this:

The details are kinda lost as this resolution, but as you can see, "big eyes, small mouth" lives up to its name.

Nothing's that precise.

Unless you got a ruler and measured the face of every Aspie you know, there's no real evidence that it's that precisely accurate. Autism doesn't have distinct facial feaures like downs syndrome does. It's just your imagination.


I strongly disagree . If you can pick Austic people out and identify them as ASD , with enough examples you will see it is true . To me its as distinctive as Downs Syndrome .. so far I haven't come across contrary to this belief . If I had pictures of everybody's faces . I guarantee I would pick 98% Autistics out of 100 faces .

I'm open to other people's opinions , but genetics is something I have a close eye on

This. Thank you IsabellaLinton.
I suppose some Aspies love to believe that autism has different facial features but it DOESN'T. If the differences were as distinct as downs syndrome then autism would be diagnosed at birth.

It's a bit like saying ''only Aspies have two eyes''. Daft.

I can kind of see it in people's eyes, because of our lack of eye contact. There's a vacancy in our gaze. It's not that we look stupid but we tend to have a faraway look in our eyes. It's like we're living in our minds and not fully engaged with whatever we're looking at visually. In photos autistic people either seem to have their eyes downcast, not engaged, or else they're staring really hard and looking fake.

There's also a bit of reservation in our eyes / countenance, as if we want to retreat or vanish.

Then of course flat affect, awkward smiles, and awkward movement like we're built out of steel.

Hands tend to be held in tight fists, up close to the body.

This is totally speculative. Please no haters. I know that not everyone is like this, and everyone is different. I'm just saying if I had to identify people based on photos / real life, that's what I personally would look for. I don't think it's so much "facial features" as it's a way of carrying ourselves and seeming uncomfortable in our own skin.

I wonder, do I look autistic? (My profile pic is me, albeit a younger version.)
And if so, how come I only got diagnosed at age 52?
I call BS on the whole idea, especially when facts about the face that are true for 99% of the population is stated to be signs of autism. It's simply not true.

There is no "look" to autism.  It is diagnosed by behavior.

I used to believe that I look "retarded" or whatever. or "autistic." In retrospect, though, I don't believe that is true.

I used to think I had a "retarded" voice, too. In retrospect, I don't believe this is true, either.

I believe a person's bodily movements can "indicate" autism more than a person's face.

The exception would be if a person has some sort of chromosomal disorder, accompanying the autism, which renders the person's face "unusual" in some fashion. Some of these disorders bear distinctive "looks."

It should be noted that people with Angelman's Syndrome, a situation where a person is severely disabled, but very happy, do not have a distinctive face, per se. They look like "normal" people.
