I am different than most NTs. I have figured the cause to be a brain injury when I was around 3 years old. I was attacked by a large bull. It weighted over 1,000 pounds and I weighed less than 20 pounds. It was like being attacked by a dinosaur. I died. At least the dominant left side of my brain died that day. But my non-dominant right side survived and did a brain flip to survive. The qualities of the right side of the brain are dramatically different than the left side.

After the brain flip, life was good. It was only after the age where a child becomes an adult, around age 12 or 13, that my world came to an end and I suffered physical attacks and mental attacks daily at school. This lasted for 3 years between the 5th through 8th grade. In my first year of high school, they figured out that I was a little weird and they sent me to a special class called SPEED READING. Most people learn to read from the start of a paragraph word by word to the end. But in speed reading you read differently from the inside out. The class taught me how to read, even the most difficult subjects. And I went off to college and earned a degree in Physics at UCLA.

The point is that my right side brain was extremely fast at reading and then deleting the words. I just couldn't stay on subject long enough to absorb the information. It taught me how to stay on subject long enough to learn how to read. At the end of eight grade the students voted me the LEAST LIKELY TO SUCCEED. At the end of high school, four year later, they thought I was the CLASS GENIUS. Learning how to read differently gave me that skill.

One of the skills that most NTs learn early in life is to judge people by eye contact. I do not look people directly in their eyes. The average NT can spot this trait within a half a second in a conversation. They use it to just me as evil. They are dead wrong, but that is the way of NTs. I began wearing a special type of one way sunglasses a few years ago to prevent NTs from seeing my eyes. It was profound that strangers would come up to me in the public and begin casual conversations, to me a total stranger. So in my case, since I do not give eye to eye contact, they misjudge me. That is the ways of life.


Whoa have you shared your story more in depth? That sounds interesting.

What a thing for a teacher to ask an autistic student. That was rather callous of her.

"And you would take my word for it if I said 'no'?"

I was never accused of planning a shooting by a teacher, but I did have a teacher use that as the reason why some kids shouldn't bully me in 9th grade. Some older kids were bullying me in the hallway durring lunch. A teacher saw what was happening and stopped them from bullying me, but the only justification she gave for why what they were doing was wrong and why they shouldn't do it was to bring up Columbine and talk about how that is the sort of thing that causes school shootings.

I was homeschooled with Columbine happened but had I been in a public school, I would have been suspected of planning a school shooting. If I had stayed in public school and the bullying problem just continued to fester, I probably would have. Bullying situation was never resolved, my parents just pulled me out to homeschool me. We lived in the middle of nowhere and were kinda poor. Another public school the same thing would have happened all over again and the only way to send me to a private school would be to move (which my parents were against) or send me to a boarding school out of state (which my parents were also against). So I was homeschooled. One of my friends was also homeschooled and soon another boy in the neighborhood was being homeschooled. Our mothers and grandmother (the first boy was raised by his grandparents) kinda formed a co-opp for us for field trips. We would play jokes on each other now and then but there was no real bullying. But if I had stayed in public school, I might have planned a school shooting.

Shooting? That's so last decade. I'm planning a tactical nuclear strike. :twisted:

The appropriate way to respond back when OP was asked and edgy jokes on the topic were still acceptable.


I am anonymously tipping off the FBI regarding this tactical nuclear strike of yours. :lol:

Teachers are human beings and he/she might have been traumatised enough to be paranoid

I know an Indian man who was asked by his best friend whether he was an Arab the day after 9-11 and whether he owned guns. I asked this man whether he punched the guy in the face, He said he understood his friend was in a reactive mood as he was badly effected from watching the twin towers collapse,
