    How does it feel ? Explain me. I'd really like to understand your complicated nature.

    so the question is, how does it feel to have low serotonin levels, especially in a social context?

    Socially, it feels like I hang back, observing because I don't have the energy or exuberance to approach people unless there's something specific I deem worthy to discuss or throw myself into. Eating & drinking help some, especially caffeine and alcohol. Substances such as those really make a difference to me, socially. I'm way more interesting and fun in a social context after some caffeine or alcohol. It's sometimes even like I'm a different person. Otherwise, my default is to be quiet and wait for others to approach me. Then if they don't, I leave.

    I dunno if that's necessarily related to S- but it might be.

    No. This is related to D-.

    Are you moody ? Do you think you're a "sad" or "dark-minded" person ? Do you often feel like confronting the external world ?

    I can be moody, but I try to project a positive image when I'm with other people no matter what I'm feeling. But it requires a lot of energy for me to do so when I'm not feeling great, so I usually avoid people when I'm like that.

    What do you mean by 'confronting the external world'?

    I mean acting as if you disagree with most of the external world.

    I don't really act like I do - I feel like I do though.

    You know, I call them "autistic", because of their thinking style, and their behaviours who look like showing lack of empathy.

    I don't think my behaviour looks like that. Well, Idk. Maybe it does, but I don't have a problem with feeling empathy.

    You know, most celebrities people considered "evil" were autistic. For example :

    Stalin was autistic
    Milosevic was autistic
    Hitler was autistic
    Mussolini was autistic
    Lenin was autistic
    Saddam was autistic
    Zhirinovsky is autistic
    and so on.


    Why S- people ? Why not S0 people ? OK, S- people are known to be pushy, confrontational, truthful, which don't look like "autistic" traits. But actually, they behave like that because they don't feel like accomodating, because they can't really think of how other people are undergoing them. Hence "autistic".

    But if you were also D-, it seems to me that you wouldn't really be a confrontational person, because you would lack the energy, if nothing else. I certainly don't go out of my way to disagree with people and I'm not a 'pushy' person. I just don't like conforming for the sake of it. But I'm very aware of people's feelings, and back down immediately if I feel I'm hurting someone. That's not autistic behaviour! :-)

    Please don't conflate your personal re-definition of "autistic" with the actual (serious) condition of autism.

    Yeah, like killing millions of people for bureaucratic reasons isn't the result of autism.

    It's an obvious conspiracy, of course.
