    Autistics+aspies consciously “see” the sensory input but don’t get much automatic, filtered output. We have to analyze these things consciously. That’s why we’re so good at learning; we absorb it all, without the subconscious filtering out or summing up. That’s also why we can get sensory overload very easily. Some autistics draw very well because they don’t think about the big picture, they consciously notice the details.

    When you mentioned the brain issue with face reading, you triggered my neuroscience obsession. Now I’ll have to drone on and on about it. (:

    Autistics lack activity in the prefrontal cortex. This area is associated with “high-level” sensory processing stuff, like filtering out voices, summing up conversations, “understanding the big picture”, and reading faces. NTs can take in lots of sensory input and only see the cleaner, simpler output.

    Cat culture. :P Cats feel threatened by sustained eye contact. When they need to appear friendly to other cats they either blink, squint or look away quickly.

    That’s why cats are sometimes aspies’ best friends (:

    i sometimes wonder if we’re often scapegoated not just because of bullies, but because NT’s don’t read us well, don’t trust those who don’t make eye contact, etc. i find it a repeated pattern to be blamed for things i didn’t do, or when i do say something wrong, to have it blown way out of proportion. (i can say something slightly inappropriate, and suddenly i have this whole history of evil in some NT eyes.) it’s confusing sometimes. but i don’t think i’ll believe i’m “evil” anymore.

    This is really interesting. I like the use of the smileys example.

  16. ctfchris says:

    The Japanese and a lot of Native American cultures don’t make as much direct eye contact.
