But the previous username sucked (teenage me was terrible at picking usernames), and there was no way to change it.

So, hello (again).

Hello and welcome.

Welcome to Wrong Planet again.

Monotropism - A tendency to focus attention on one thing at a time, with difficulty shifting attention and processing multiple stimuli which might support understanding.

I would say that I have that trait also. The reason why it takes a bit longer to understand things is because
Most NTs look at things from only one direction, whereas many Aspies will evaluate something from several different directions. As a result it just takes us a little longer to reach a position.

In a normal conversation with NT, they begin a topic and talk about it for a few seconds and then move onto another topic and then another. Meanwhile I am exploring the topic and I finally provide my thoughts and inputs. But by that time they have gone through several topics and are far away from the original topic. As a result I am out of place. So it doesn't make any sense to them because they are no longer in that topic area anymore.
