131. Try to convince them that social rules are by and large arbitrary and most of the meaning they ascribe to those rules is actually meaningless.

Be stubbornly convinced that NTs are all shallow, stupid, mindless, ridiculous creatures [or that they're incapable of any and all mental activity not concerning facebook, fashion, or the overscrutinized lives of airheaded celebrities] and all have attitudes and minds similar to those you might see on freaking Jersey Shore or something.


I imagine that is pretty annoying.


Yep! I mean, I know that a lot of aspies and auties were treated badly by NTs in the past, but lots of NTs [me] were too. Really, we're not all that bad. Some of us, believe it or not, are decent human beings, with actual minds and personalities.

But then, of course, my guy [who happens to have Aspergers] is firmly convinced that I, too, have Aspergers - even though I keep telling him I don't, and giving plenty of specific examples of traits I DON'T HAVE. Maybe it's just because he thinks I'm worth the air I breathe, so I must not be an NT. :lol:

And above all, be hyper-literal.

Yeah, I have a tendency to do that too :D you can't be an NT, come on, you can hold a conversation! I guess it can be taken the wrong way :P

142. Point out their logical fallacies, in latin, without further explanation.
143. After they reply to you, say that what they said was stupid and call them socially inept, in the most convincing, condescending tone you can muster. Subtlety increases the effectiveness.

"God, you're stupid. Autistic people clearly have better social skills than you do."

(You get bonus points if the last sentence is clearly hypocritical to the other person. I.e., they know you're autistic. They'd probably just laugh, though.)

Describe what is happening in a piece of music using all kinds of technical terms to a non-musical person. I was really bad to do that as a teenager when I was first learning to play.

Talk about something you're obsessed with a lot.
You will soon get a preach or lecture regarding talking about your obsession. Once you have received this complaint from someone, you can never talk about your obsession again because even just bringing it up for 2 minutes a day will bore the NT to death. Yes, I have learnt that when they tell me to stop talking about my obsession, they literally mean STOP. Never bring it up again to them or else.

The cheeky trick: drop tiny hints about your obsession. :lol:

Luckily the people I'm close to only get annoyed if I keep going like a broken record.

This just happened to me. A few days after Denver lost in the NFL playoffs, I was in a situation at work where "small talk" was expected from me. As soon as I said "How 'bout those Broncos?" I realized that it was the wrong thing. Sometimes, if attempting small talk, it is best to stay with one topic, the weather.
