You Might Be Autistic If... by woohooligan You Might Be Autistic If... by woohooligan
An actual conversation with my oldest daughter ~angelamyrose. ;P

Though I did take some license... I didn't end that conversation with sarcasm, although she can make her nose disappear when she makes a deliberate facial expression. ;P

I think she's got most of the big stuff down... some of the nuance seems lost on her though... (As I'm sure is often the case for myself as well.)

EDIT: Wow, I totally did not expect this one to be so popular! Thanks guys! :la:

EDIT 2: For my friends on the autistic spectrum (yes, I'm using the term "friend" very loosely), you may also enjoy this tutorial I did on the subject of facial expressions. The information in the tutorial is from a book called Emotions Revealed by a cognitive science researcher named Paul Eckman who consults for the TV series Lie To Me.

what's interesting for me is that conversations on the internet are easier for me...mainly cause i don't have to interpret nuances and gestures and stuff...stuff that makes conversations in real life difficult

Yeah, a lot of us on the spectrum have that experience of finding it easier to talk to people online than in person. I would also recommend reading the book Emotions Revealed by Paul Eckman. It's really helped me to understand how other people are thinking / feeling during conversations and in fact I actually get a lot more out of watching TV and movies now after reading it. A lot of in-person conversations are still challenging, but I have a better handle on them now. :D
