Darkness is supposed to trigger an increase in melatonin and GABA (neurotransmitter inhibitors). Prayer or meditation in a dark room, may give enough time for these chemicals to build in the brain. However, Aspergers may be the result of a neurological variation that results in a neurological config...

I would like to make connections with other Christians who also may have difficulty in church environments. I have not found much value in the sermon / lecture format of most churches and see a questioning / discussion approach better suited to growth. As Christianity seems to be a diminishing pract...

I am not sure a label would be that helpful. Rather a parent can identify any quality their child has for instructional or even corrective purposes. For example, a child that has explosive anger issues will have to learn more how to control them regardless of if they are melt-downs or not. A child t...

People have designed mechanical systems and electrical systems. However, when one designs human systems (collectivism), one exposes intrinsic human flaws. These are often attempted to control with force which gives collectives such a bad reputation.

I tend to dump a lot of information at once. I only slowly realized that while I would appreciate such an efficient transmission of information, many others do not. It can be difficult to take a lot of information in, particularly if there is emotional content to it. The person who has the informati...

Are Aspies less likely to conform than NTs? What does everyone else think? We may be less likely to conform as a means to achieve acceptance. However, as the years pass and society becomes more "trigger happy". One learns to check reflexive comments so as to avoid drawing fire. This can a...

Sometime in communication with someone we have a relationship with, we can get caught off guard. However, it can sometimes be useful to inquire further to clarify. In the situation you cite with your husband, you might have asked if he thinks you are as unrestrained as you once were and if he sees n...

One thing that may help is to provide a consequence for bad behavior. For example, if you have him sit on a chair for 10 minutes (which can seem a long time to him) for breaking something. You can also ask him if he knows why he is sitting on the chair. This verbal inquiry can reinforce the impressi...

Forty years ago I had an employee complain to me about a guy from another department that would stand too close when he talked to her. I asked the guy to stop by my office and I asked him if he had ever heard of the subject of personal body space. He had not. It is always difficult to bring up a sub...

Harry, I am not sure the people sitting around the table have as their primary motive wanting to be useful. There may be elements of ego and a desire to control others that factor in. However, one cannot rule out the financial aspect. A broader category that sounds more threatening would certainly b...
