The studies indicate that some children have difficulty picking up on non-verbal or social cues. ... A second major factor is that some children may pick up on non-verbal or social cues, but lack the ability to attach meaning to them. The third factor is the ability to reason about social problems.

Fascinating. I probably manifest all 3 problems to some degree:

  1. I sometimes don't pick up on non-verbal or social cues.
  2. If I pick up a potential cue, I have a large margin for epistemological doubt, as in "I can't know for sure".
  3. As far as reasoning about social problems, many times the response is "leave them be because they're figuring it out".

It's not that those of us with social problems and introversion are anti-social, but socially handicapped. It's like being stuck in a wheelchair while other people are running around. Exploring this topic should be a high priority for me.
