Do I think I'm random? Never. Do other people perceive me as random because they can't follow my zigzagged associative thinking? Almost all the time. Like anytime I talk without having a planned out speech with notes to follow.

I would say that I am completely random in both how I act and what I say. Completely and totally unpredictable in fact. Perhaps this is a characteristic of Autism and related somehow to ADHD - attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

There seem to be several maladies that go hand-in-hand with Autism like OCD and ADHD etc etc. Perhaps it is simply the childlike characteristic that we all have in common. This randomness appears to be another fundamental aspect of ASD and worth further study.


Aye, Cap'm! You are right. I am very childish, I have childish humor that works only half the time, I spout out random crap that makes a lot of people probably think I'm a total weirdo. I also do this mostly just to humor myself because I'm bored out of my skull and like to see what their reactions are to it just to entertain myself because I still feel like a little kid inside.

Another funny thing...I've been told I have good handwriting (I write in print, not cursive), but I feel like I have craptastic handwriting even though a lot of other people's writing really sucks worse than mine. I also have a hard time actually reading people's handwriting when they write in cursive.

Besides being able to connect 2 seemingly unrelated things, I would say that I’m not that random.

Not usually. Normally really routine. Almost everything is the same way, same time, every day.
But I do work on going outside of my routines pretty often. Just a little bit every day. Or going with my gut when I feel like "do this weird thing".
I also kind of force spontaneity. I regularly flip coins to make decisions. Sometimes major decisions.
When I got an insurance settlement a few years ago, I decided I needed to do something interesting. Hadn't ever left the country yet. Went on the internet and found a random City name generator. Calcutta was the city that came up. So I went to see if I could get a visa, got one. Jumped on a plane and went to India. Didn't go to Calcutta. Went to Goa. Bought a motorcycle, cruised around Goa , ended up riding to Himachal Pradesh.
Even there, though. Pretty routine. Found a restaurant I liked and ate there three times a day. Got to the point where it was a joke with them because I'd order basically the same thing every time. Spent a lot of time in India in my room reading. On the trip across country I basically didn't stop anywhere. Eight days of riding and I think I got three hotel rooms. Rode a number of eighteen hour days.

Anyway. Actions, pretty routine. Thoughts, pretty random.

I guess me being random depends on my energy lvls. I can stick to topic as long as my energy is not depleted. If so(tired and no energy) then even having a significant conversation takes energy that I don't have at that point.

i know this a social symptom of autism.

are u random often?


I'm sometimes like that. When there's people around, I'm always afraid that this could happen so I take a lot of care and try to pay attention to whatever I say. Most of all I try not to talk to myself when I am not alone. Anyway there were many times when such things happened. It just takes one minute of distraction and then there it is, I just said aloud something that I shouldn't.

When I'm home I speak and do random things all the time. I feel absolutely free to do whatever I want when no one is looking. I can stop on my tracks halfway to the kitchen, pause and think "why am I going there right now? It's pointless... turning around, going back".

If I were at work though, I would just keep going. "Well... I don't want people to see me standing on the hallway and thinking what I should do next so I better just keep walking, pretend I just went for a glass of water, then I'll go back".
