How do you see the world as someone with autism?

The difficulty of answering this type of question is that you cannot make a comparison with someone else’s vision.It is difficult to name what is different or special about my worldview, for example, I can describe it, of course, and then hope that I have mentioned the relevant things. For example, I sometimes notice some signals-like the feeling that your field of view is deforming-that I have a greater sensitivity to sensory information. That it may seem that I am stepping out of my body when I stand still in a place (stiff). That there are a lot of quick flashes of light, tones, patches of information coming to you when you are on a highway or in a city (and also at home over-stimulation there may be some kind of light flashes-almost like a depiction of a shock-especially if I’m in a dark Bathroom stand, which then resembles a form of short circuit). That you are actually resetting your gaze all the time, that if I look over a heather area for example, I am always zooming in and out. And when tired or dehydration or something like that a line of dots before my eyes (what people sometimes called ‘ eyelash hairs ‘ when I talked about it, but I doubt it is-it seems more flies, but in the form of transparent dots ). That it is from one moment when I am completely turning to the next moment when I (Hyper active) can go running. That is when I myself have one-also for me-special sensory experience and notice this and wonder if others are experiencing it (usually afterwards, at the moment you are often the realization of reality or the outside world lost-literally disoriented * ) and especially whether to see this to me at the moment that happens to me such a thing (do my eyes roll? Am I getting bleacher? Is there anything else on my face? Or, for example, to my hands?). The other side is an in-depth experience of nature, you see every plant in the roadside or can see in a field all flower buds in bloom from a certain distance and want to sit in the grass for example. I used to be in a playground on the ground in the grass or lying in the sand to look at everything from there: screws of the construction of the slide or stealing of plants or the moss or crevices between tiles or pits/pollen and other small Height differences between the grass. When I was with a friend in a playground, I also sometimes did and was (almost) all my attention when studying the things on the ground or on and in the constructions of the playground (carousel, swing, Slide, a cottage). Then comes the moment that the other one is saying something to you or by Will and that you stand up and you have to restore your balance again (I have stumbled on that, and have regularly hoped sand at school and in my residential area and other similar experiences with slipping Jders).

There are times when you want to communicate something but cannot come out of your words or even cast a word (articulation/speaking with the mouth is mentally and/or physically blocked) and you sometimes try out all sorts of gestures and signs to make things To make it clear, which also does not always arrive at others, just like that when I say something to someone at times in between by a too soft or too mombling voice, that this is not understood whether there is even a total failure to react.I’ve figured out some fixed depictions/gestures/signs for these situations and also use a scripture or paper and a pen to express thoughts that are in my head, but that I am not or very painfully pronounced, can be printed out. In addition, I speak-partly due to lack of contact-every day several hours between activities and on the go with a whisper voice/soft voice or in my head against myself, sometimes also with the illusion that the information in people in my area arrives at that time -or could come if they would catch sound and I could try to distract reactions or other voices from any unfiltered sound. For example, I tell myself a story or a new (scientific) theory of myself and other acquired knowledge or a new found link or statement based on an association of words or images or observations of the moment.

In addition, events appear, especially the social, (often) disjointed self-contained facts.I do not see the relationship between the details of the situations at the moment (afterwards and with extra reflection often better) or with other situations or events, I regularly do not follow the references that people make and sometimes not by what is said in substance As I can understand the words and phrases perfectly-but that may also be partly because I am drowsy and tired, because at some other times I am hyper aware of what is happening and what is being said.

* You have lost all the time and place awareness and could no longer say where ‘ The East is ‘, disoriented = ‘ ‘ The East is lost ‘ ‘.


If I naga it to myself, I am doing information, including individual information units (incentives) much more consciously than automatic (also known as ‘ ‘ intuitive ‘ ‘).I think about it and need to be able to do this, especially focusing on the most factual information available there, to explain the world around me and the situation I’m in. In most cases, this leads to a focus on certain (factual) details, more than on the global process. There seems to be some difficulty in processing new information, this is then solved with the aforementioned focus/strategy; Motor processes do (usually) go automatically. This is an inner process and is immutable *, it is in fact my cognitive style.

* In the process of overstimulation, access to the processing of new information is completely disabled, at most older information can still be processed.

(This specifically focuses on the role of the declarative and procedural (long-term) memory in the language capacity, but also explains the underlying theoretical model of declarative-procedural, remarkable finding: in people with ‘ ‘ specific Language disorder ‘ ‘ is the declarative memory better developed than the procedural memory)

(The declarative memory would be relatively well developed compared to the procedural memory in autism, which would lead to autistic use of knowledge more often than others when-processing-information and processes, which others have previously Be processed automatically and/or unconsciously, the latter are algorithms, which can be quickly invoked, these unconscious algorithms are often called ‘ ‘ Intuition ‘ ‘)

Theory of Mind Deficit versus Faulty Procedural Memory in Autism Spectrum Disorders (Processing of repetitive processes/procedural memory is more difficult than conscious processing of factual and other information, research also deals with the question ‘ ‘ How good is the Theory of Mind in autism? ‘ ‘, this is less relevant to my comment on My cognitive style.It is interesting to note that in autists there is more focus on the lower part of the face (around the mouth), for which mainly the declarative memory is used than on the upper part of the face (around the eyes), for which mainly the procedural Memory is used, the ability to ‘ ‘ Read Eyes ‘ ‘ would be a-through early experience-automated process (in procedural memory), but due to the focus on the declarative and not on the procedural memory-and thus less Development of perceptual categorization-decreased presence in Autisten)
