I analyze everything. I am told so often that I over analyze things. That might be true, it might not. By analyzing everyone’s behaviors, especially other aspies and those on the autistic spectrum you gain an invaluable insight. You will notice that they do a lot of the same things you do, but you can analyze it from the outside and see how it actually looks and why people react the way they do. It’s like an out of body experience watching others with aspergers and social interaction. It Helps me change my own behavior to be more socially appropriate. Encourage your child with aspergers to observe others and see how people react & then have them try to explain what they saw that seemed odd. They may say nothing or that normal people are the weird ones. I do have to agree with the fact that some of the “norm” behaviors are quite bizarre. Anyways, please comment and tell me if you used this social experiment and what the outcome was.
