The way I feel people looks a little bit like this photo. I sense them rather than look at them. Some people don´t show up at all, others explode straight in my face. It is not easy to explain, probably impossible to understand. With autistic people what I sense corresponds with what I see, but the better they are at functioning the more this changes. It is then very close to neurotypical people. Their initial emotional response is very quickly and constantly softened and corrected by logical thinking. That is how they arrive at a behaviour that is almost always adequate. If they can do this, so can autistic people. It is neither difficult nor does it have to be expensive.
