  1. General Psychology
    I ask this question because I noticed that a lot of people with autism would have ADHD symptoms, while it is pretty common for autistic person to have ADHD and ADHD people to have autism. That said, I would be interested to know what would happen if someone had both autism and ADHD. Would it...
  2. General Psychology
    Hi, I ask this question because we commonly associate ASD with strict adherence to routines and cognitive rigidity, but what I noticed it's that despite having autism, I'm not someone who is particularly fond of routines and changing political and personal views is something which often occurs...
  3. ENFJ Forum - The Givers
    I just recently got an autism diagnosis and I feel like its very abnormal to be an ENFJ with autism due to the stereotypes. I should also say, I am a girl and my special interests are humans and animals. So that might clarify any possible confusion😂 Is there anyone else here who identify as an...
  4. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    My mum is an ESTJ and I am having a hard time deal with her. I get on with my nan better and she's ISFJ. Anyways mum is bossy, demanding, shows little to none emotional support, underestimates me and doesnt appreciate me with words. She expresses like no emotions mostly. I am autistic and so is...
  5. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    This may be just me because of my autism, but I go through phases of being obsessed with one thing and then I forget about it and pick up a new obsession. A few years ago I was a full-one sweaboo and obsessed with all things Swedish. As that died down I became deeply interested in religion, but...
  6. The Art Museum
    I want to warn you that my posting may be melancholic to some, but sometimes this is how I feel. I am what I don't want to be, which is an artist, I used to work but tired out quickly, faltering in the normal lines of work. I became a painter shortly after developing my unique skill of painting...
  7. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I have a tumblr about being autistic, cuz I'm autistic, and I'm not really shy to throw shade at Autism Speaks, Autism Warrior Parents, anti-vaxxers (*cough, cough* Jenny McCarthy *cough, cough*). I mean, they've spoken over us for years, infantilized us, demonized us, etc,. So turnabout is fair...
  8. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    So I came across this unofficial list written by a woman who has been around a lot of female aspies.* What's the difference between the things on this list and your average INTP bear? I'm seeing a lot of similarities, but I think the motivating reasons might be different. I also see a lot of...
  9. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Do you ever have the tendency to not know that you're feeling deep feelings for someone until you've inadvertently hurt them by saying there wasn't a connection (when there was. we talked every day and had been physical after a revelation of feelings), there was an emotional ending to your...
  10. What's my personality type?
    So I filled out this questionnaire: 1) What aspect of your personality made you unsure of your type? I guess, even though I often fit the stereotypes, I can also be vey loud, sometimes too open, and I love some attention. It’s one reason I love theatre/performing and why I’m majoring in it. I'm...
  11. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    It doesn't seem to be a common type around autistics, so I feel kinda out of place. Is anyone else here an autistic INFP? How can those two work together?

  14. General Psychology
    From the Independent: There's more in the article itself, but...This was something I had long suspected would be the case. I remember a quote from Dostoevsky's "Notes From Underground", "I am convinced that to be acutely conscious is a disease. A real, honest-to-goodness disease." so it seems...
  15. What's my personality type?
    Hey everybody, I'm a Russian Asperger's teenager, age 18. I'm unsure with my personality type (I have both E and I parts, S and N, T and F, but probably I am more of a P than a J), but it's hard for me to remember and list all of my personality parts in a single topic, so let's just start...
  16. INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi everyone! I'm going to be a freshman in college in a few months and I feel deeply connected to becoming an ABA therapist. ABA, or applied behavior analysis, is a sort of therapy used commonly for individuals with autism. I read Mark Haddon's "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time"...
  17. General Psychology
    In my association with an autistic boy, it appears he was always using peripheral vision when observing me and others. This is the case that when he stares at one thing, in reality he is looking at something else in his vision. The over-dependence on peripheral vision makes him appear like he is...
