First you should define 'smart' and afterwards you can ask that. Are you smart enough to survive on your own in wilderness without tools? Or for hunting and fishing? For repairing cars? Or programming the electronic control units of them? To build an air-craft or a rocket or a gun or a 3D TV? Smart...

I also quit my energy drinks for good and back to drinking only water again. That should help my skin since lack of water ages your skin faster making you look older. Drinking water is OK. Drinking to much isn't good. The body needs to keep a level of salt in it's fluids. Drinking to much causes th...

A little update but I switched to a different city in The Phillipines and I got 115 matches! That's crazy! Be aware of lots of fake accounts and scammers who want you to pay only for whatever (e.g. 'investments'). It's also pretty common for women on dating sites to use very old pics for looking yo...

An NT person can be selfish, ignorant, mean, bullying, narcissistic, heartless, etc, etc, etc, but still be considered to have empathy. Because she or he knows and cares the feelings of the others despite of that. The other NTs can relate to his or her feelings and for this to his or her behavior a...

Right, so if that isn't emotional empathy then what is? I'm sick of being denied empathy here on this forum. Nobody can't tell without knowing you and watching you what's up with you regarding that. Everybody may have feelings regarding the way that others may feel or suffer but not feeling empathy...

I think most Aspies have trouble with cognitive empathy, which is recognising body language and other social cues. Emotional empathy is what most Aspies have, even if they don't show it it doesn't mean they lack it. I have emotional empathy, meaning I can imagine other people's emotions in situatio...

I couldn't resist reposting this... So, what is the definition of empathy? Good question! Empathy means kind, caring and understanding. Oh, right, well I'm generally a kind, caring and understanding person, and when someone is telling me their feelings I am a good listener, so I think I have empath...

I'm thinking abstract and in words but not in pictures nor emotions even that those can be part of an abstract thinking. That's not as rare for Asperger's but less common for other forms of autism as far as I know. Thinking in words is just what it says. Words are just names for abstract things, hap...

I guess all I'm basically saying is that always living around every upcoming technology amounts to a really slow, boring panic attack for me emotionally. I'm not good at keeping up with people, mostly I just think about code & try to imagine how things can change when I get a vaccine. Truthfull...

Don't know what you are talking about but anything honest seems OK for trying to improve your situation. You won't ever forgive yourself for not having tried anything. :wink:
