The optimist says the glass is half full, the pessimist says the glass is half-empty, and the person with Asperger’s says the glass is made of silicon melted and formed into a shape to hold liquids for humans to drink.
The analytical brain of someone with Asperger’s often has a very black-and-white way of seeing things. They tend to see only what is in front of them and take things literally. They lack the experience of living through the “ups and downs” that their neurotypical peers have had.
