1. now that I'm more aware of what autism is, I'm pretty sure my friend has a noteworthy form of it but I suppose I'll never be able to ask

    1. @tiffany People can fake it quite well too, it's hard to prove unfortunately but there's been a few cases of using it for advantages

      1. @mrdragon There's honestly no way my friend is doing that, either way. Until last year, when he came to sixth form, he didn't really interact with people, but higher education has been good for him. He loves the sciences--it's all he really talks about--and he's extremely good at them too. So... I dunno. I hardly know anything about the condition or anything, but he ticks the few boxes I'm aware of.

        1. @tiffany He could just have a general social issues, anxiety and such. Best place to find out is to see a psychologist.

          1. @mrdragon Very true. It's certainly not my place to look much more into it; I feel like it's worth consideration just for the sake of awareness but it doesn't make any difference to our friendship no matter what.
