Hi, Lunachan! I have a question for you -- how much tollerance do you have for logical disorder in your cognitive shema?

I have been diagnosed with autism, and I've been trying to grow in my understanding of how my mind is different than that of those without autism. I think the primary difference is that I have a high sensitivity to disorder in my cognitive models for the world. I feel others are much less effected by this problem and as a result they have a higher tollerance for disordered thought patterns.

How do you respond to cognitive disorder, lunachan?

I generally don't 'respond' to most things. If someone's really, really dense and jumps the gun, puts words in my mouth and then completely misinterprets me, I usually get rather upset.
But otherwise, I'm full of apathy regarding most things. As there's usually really no 'wrong' way of thinking.
I have some difficulty putting it into words, but what I'm trying to say is that there's many different ways you could take only to arrive at the same conclusion.

Long time no see.

Explain "cognitive disorder" for derps?

That is one impressive tripcode. Only on a chan would someone manage pretty much the equivalent of winning the national lottery (a 10 character generated trip in the correct upper and lower case) surrounding the word penis. I tip my hat (or is it my helmet) to you.

Thanks, Cloud.

It's not my tripcode, though.
I just found it and decided to use it myself.

I see. Yes, often one can think about things from a lot of perspectives. :)

Hi, Steve! Great to see you again! How have you been?

>>95947
Cognitive disorder. Well, it's like believing both "all lawyers are crooks who try to take advantage of people" and "Mr. Johnson down the street is a good lawyer who tries to help people." It's believing two things that can't both be true at once.

>It's believing two things that can't both be true at once.
OK, technically you also have to believe that you can't be both trying to help and trying to take advantage. So usually cognitivie dissonance is a triangle of beliefs. Hmm....perhaps sometimes I lack sensitivie for a difference in what someone's third belief might be...
No. 95952
>>95951
I guess I do believe you can do something that helps both yourself and other people at the same time. OK, so perhaps a bad example... :/

And because of that, a lot of people may end up contradicting themselves without even realizing it.
>How have you been?
It's good to see you aswell.
The Fluttershys you sent me are still with me, if you were wondering.
As for how I'm doing, I think I'm doing alright.
I've been having some money issues, but other than that, I'm alright.
I've got about 4-5 weeks to study and finish 4 to 5 different subjects in school before summer break starts. So studying is on high priority right now, and it's got me a bit stressed out.
Studying on a constantly empty stomach is straining, you see.

True. :)

Oh, thanks for mentioning it, sweetie. :)

That's good to hear!

>4-5 weeks to study and finish 4 to 5 different subjects in school before summer break starts.
Good luck, Steven!

>Studying on a constantly empty stomach is straining, you see.
I'm sorry food's a problem. I hope you find some option for getting enough food.

I'm glad to hear things seem to be improving, even if money is still an issue. Good luck on your tests, sweetie!

About six months ago. As an adult, obviously. Still kinda trying to process what it means and dosen't mean.

I have no idea what you just asked.

Do you want to know how much disorder I can stand kinda?

Well, nice find :P

Ah I see. I get that all the time, thinking about it.
Can't say it bothers me too much - if something can't be properly proven (like the lawyer thing can't be, but the Earth not being flat can be) then to be honest I'll tend to gravitate towards what feels good for my personality and who I want to be and what I want to believe, balanced out by the other side if need be.

For example the lawyers. In day to day life I'd usually want to get to know a lawyer before judging him to be a bad person - but if I'm looking for a lawyer for myself then I'd put on a more cynical "hat" and assume that most of them are out to rip me off.

There's general open-mindedness too like not necessarily believing both things to be absolutes, but accepting both as possibilities (I'm not religious and never would be as, with the greatest respect to my good friend, to me it's restrictive. It's deciding "this thing is true and this thing is not". But it works both ways - I can't and won't outright deny the existence of a god either)

Oh, it's OK. I'm not sure what I'm asking either.

>>95967
Yes, you're right. In the end, knowing stuff and thinking is complicated. Sometimes I just wish the world were simpler. :/
