Rule of thumb in social interactions:

- Never say something obvious (people won't respect you if you do this)

- Never say what is not necessary

- Make sure you say what actually is necessary (that includes small-talking to avoid awkward silences, what you are doing etc.)

The result is: not talking too much, but not being too quiet either.

This is obviously easier said than done when it doesn't come naturally.

I noticed that under autistics -especially HFA and AS- that when they started to tell something that they HAVE TO finish. I get this too in certain situations and get mad when someone interrupts me then. :oops:

I have this problem.

I think it's because NTs talk to connect while aspies talk to share ideas.
