I'm just reminded that there is a weird connection between some guy wanting to get a gf to make fun of all the people in his life who bullied him for having pimples in his youth and "get back at them." In the book, Shame & Guilt by Jane Middelton-Moz, she begins the book with a story ...

The cognitive testing (IQ testing), especially, was very stressful for me, and I was practically shaking during parts of it. I think that my self-perception of intelligence has been the ONE cornerstone of my identity that I have firmly grasped onto for my entire adult life, through the many “trials...

As far as masking, NTs mask/assimulate/present. Is the issue the number of times it occurs or with the "lie or faking it" moral issue? I'm not sure who you were asking, but I'd like to answer. I have no issue with the latter. I'm trying to tell the truth; that's enough for me right now. I...

I was "against" mandatory seat belts, until I worked in an emergency room. The accident victims coming in who had been wearing seat belts were treated and went home. The ones who weren't wearing seat belts either went upstairs for emergency surgery or downstairs to the morgue. It was very...

Well said. At this moment, I am wearing a t-shirt. The caption around a picture of a pair of dog tags says, "Not all wounds are physical; not all scars are visible"

Keep in mind that you are still not able to put on a seatbelt on a lot of buses and especially when travelling on a rail vehicle such as a train or a light rail vehicle. Right. My grandkids are on a school bus every day without seatbelts, ostensibly because kids bounce off windshields better than a...

I didn't see the seat belt law as an illogical chance. I reckoned the logic was that the insurance companies, run by rich people, wanted to reduce the claims so they'd get more profit, so they got the government to change the law for them, and the government complied because they're mostly there to...

I thought of two salient points, since I last posted in this thread, that I'd like to add. I am an amazing storyteller. I can make a story about taking a dump sound fascinating. One of the most fascinating takeaways I've had from my interaction with NT's, is that the crazy things that leap out at me...

I have written what I would refer to as a spiritual fantasy for young adults. To be clear - it is not religious. It is a typical length for a YA novel at ~100K words and is broken up into forty-eight short chapters. I'm going to go ahead and post chapter one here. If anyone reads it and wants me to ...

Hi! I'm new to this forum, and new to the whole Austism/Asperger's topic, as I only was diagnosed 5 days ago (Asperger's). Since I was 10 or so, I've been writing stories, not so much because I enjoy writing or using language (I do not), but because it helped me process things and find solutions fo...

Kraftie is correct, the forum is mostly about things that are not related to sex. Certainly, if we take the forum as a whole. I am not re-entering this discussion in an effort to be right; that has no appeal for me. My only purpose is to ensure that I've communicated where I was coming from properl...

A question I have for you all is do you think that someone with Asperger's Syndrome can become a successful author even with his difficulties in social interaction, which may be reflected in his writing, especially in the dialogue? Another question: Does anyone know of any successful writers who ha...

Not sure about people on the spectrum, but I’m guessing there are none in my area, not even NTs, because it’s Texas and people think any sexual act not resulting in procreation is evil. Having lived in about forty of the United States, I can assure you that the more conservative the state, the less...

Oh I've spent way, way more than nine months in a metaphorical cage. :) No, that was nine months in a literal, physical cage. Think of a large dog kennel with thicker bars.

I tend to use intuition more than breaking people down into psychological parts, when I talk to them. As do I - today. That's actually why I drew from the poker book even though we aren't taking about poker. In order to take what I now do subconsciously and/or via a highly developed intuition and b...
