Is the Asperger troll back?

Yes he is r1. And he’s wrong. They are.

Does it even exist? Where was it in the 50's?

by Anonymousreply 3Last Saturday at 8:13 AM

R2 They emphatically are not. They have emotions and feel empathy, almost to a fault. They have trouble understanding other peoples' feelings and often their own feelings. They need to be told how someone feels point blank to understand because they are blind to non-verbal communication. They have trouble inferring how other people feel, which is not the same as being a empty, ruthless psycho.

Uh huh r4

OP do you know so much about sociopaths because you are one? You don't seem to have much empathy.

by Anonymousreply 6Last Saturday at 2:19 PM

Not understanding feelings is basically sociopathy.

Sorry. This is based on experience.

R7 You sound stupid. Do you have a degree in psychology? Of course you don't.

I think most people know this. Also autistic people who are high-functioning can pass for neuro-typical and live independently though they may feel alienated and frustrated by not fitting it. Autistic people have empathy and feel emotion, they just have difficulty reading emotional cues and expressing their emotions.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
