I also agree that looking at things from all different angles is more what autistic people do, but sometimes that paralyses us into not doing anything. Well it does that with me anyway. I'm so busy thinking about the different angles that I don't do something quickly enough for the neurotypical world. And they move on quickly and often take advantage :x


There lies in a major difference between verbal and written communications. In written communications I can take much more time in getting my points across.

Yes, I also come across much better in writing than talking because of that. Conversation moves too quickly doesn't it.
