I hate neurotypical because it's so often used on this forum to describe "Not autistic" as if no other mental disorders exist :roll: Allistic is superior in every way, as a term.

The ideal word to replace neurotypical would be pack animal or pack hunters for those who follow an "alpha" and "alpha" for those who have followers.

These names describe the neurotypicals for what they are. The neurotypicals are social pack animals and alphas who require social interaction.


Confusing.

If you say "pack animal" when youre thinking "wolves", the listener who hears "pack animal" may imagine "burro", "donkey", or "mule". LOL! Not the same kind of "pack animal".

What "ways" are there?

In which of those ways is "allistic" a better term?

What is the meaning of allistic? I know it describes someone who's not autistic, but where does the word come from?

The word "NT" was first used by autistics but then people with other mental disorders started using it too. I think we can continue using it though to describe non-autistic people as I'm sure its original purpose was. And everybody on this forum knows what's meant anyway. (:

I would suggest the word doxist. Since one of the key noticeable features of their mental condition is their mental tendency toward conformity.

I think that J. K. Rowling might object to copyright infringement.

There's no reason to confuse the general public with a new word. Instead we should focus on autism acceptance.

Alternative for "NT" -- still thinking about it, compromising, living vicariously, dropping hints, (passive) aggressive, procrastinating.

You say that you want acceptance. They engage in dialogue, for the sake of negative attention. It's called dialectics.

We think of it, in terms of time management. What is a nameable goal, to be accomplished, by a date, in the short term.

They will be asking what really happened, 200yrs from now.

imo, NT's can't fixate on anything specific. Most interaction is meant to lead you on, or be an ongoing process. It's like the hypnotic induction, where there is a train, balloon, elevator, or cloud, and they are forever chasing some white rabbit, into a state of limbo. All you have to figure out, is how to keep the ball rolling.

They are always getting confused by some new word. You can remember what they said, 20 yrs ago, and already know what they will still be saying, 20 yrs into the future.

Probably the safest and truest term you can use is "non-autistic". It couldn't possibly offend anyone. And J K Rowling can't sue you for saying it.

For many on WP they would be more comfortable with "non-diagnosed autistic"

:?: Being undiagnosed doesn't mean you're not autistic. You're not autistic just from the moment a professional says you are. Or am I misunderstanding what you mean?
