Different profiles Aspie/Autie profiles example My Gramp who has AS has Social-Emotional Agnosia (body language blindness) to higher degree this means this emotions are internal (not seen) but are very much present within him, he just doesn’t use the same body language to convey his emotions, he has Alexithymia so is not experience this emotions in “real-time”. He feels an internal in intensity. He does like to help others and is very empathic.
I have Autism I have Visual agnosias but focus on the voice of the person because of visual fragmentation do use my body language differently as a result, I try my best to give that person advice, comfort and need (just like my Gramp) in a more animated manner. I have Alexithymia and emotions are external to “me and my body” that means it is the other way round emotions come into my consciousness sometimes with such intensity that I would self-harm (head hitting, knuckling my cheeks, tensing my face). I have learned to deal with emotions as I have got older though.
