No, I do not remember this trait. As a very, very young child, many infants are wrapped at night. This is because they tend to move their arms while dream sleeping. This is where the term "Wrapped in Swaddling Clothes" in the bible comes from. According to the Internet: Swaddling is the an...

There are several different types of Autism. Some people with autism have asperger's syndrome. They develop very high I.Q.s and live productive independent lives. I will make the following suggestion. There are many on line tests to determine if you have autism. They may not be totally accurate but ...

Yes, I think you are right that you would perform better in a back room working stock. But I think you are taking the wrong approach. Using your spectrum as a deficit to change how you think people should treat you, in my humble opinion, is the wrong approach. You have a skill set and they are diffe...

Well you toughed upon a lot of subjects. So let me provide some answers (maybe). Let's start by talking a little bit about ME. I am 74 years old. I suffered a major stroke about a year and a half ago. This was the type of stroke that is normally a life ender experience. But I survived and am doing m...

Group think is a major problem. It leads people astray. Much of the problems in the world, many of the wars are produced by a mass of group think.

Yes. It occurred from a brain injury when I was around 3 years old. Normally the left side of the brain is dominant and the right side of the brain lives in our REM and NREM sleep state. But because my left side was damaged and died at around 3, the two sides of my brain switched places so that my b...

I dont have any of these symptoms though. Someone else posted and said that brains of dead aspies were examined and found to be child-like in structure. Many of the symptoms that you wrote describe what I experienced immediately after my stroke. I lost my ability to read (bur I retained my ability ...

People tend to think like a herd of animals. One animal goes off in one direction and they all join the group. Aspies are a different type of people. One of our skills (if we develop it possible) is to make decisions on our own. We spend more time analyzing information and this can make our decision...

Many people are very different than Aspies. Rather than look at someone speaking honestly, they feel they can lie, tell half truths and many things in between. Sometimes it is done because they feel you do not have a need to know. Generally I would say that if she is going through hard times at the ...

About 50 years ago, I was working in a warehouse and one of the people I met was in a game show. It had 3 men and one woman. She asked questions and then picked one of them for a date. He was a nice guy but had one defect. He was blind in one eye. After several rounds of running through preliminary ...

One of the problems many Aspies have is that they avoid EYE TO EYE CONTACT. I do not know why I do this but I do. As a result most NTs automatically consider that I am false, Keep away from him, He is evil. This is an automatic judgement on their part. But this is true. I do not make eye to eye cont...

Driving can be difficult but there are some steps that can help. To begin with, I have driven most of my life. I probably have driven over 1 million miles thus far. I am a fairly safe driver. That was not the case when I first started out. When I was young one time I received a speeding ticket. Rath...
