Compulsion to Correct and Criticise

Posted on February 29, 2016 at 6:29 PM
A common thread in most of my conversations with partners seems to be the Aspie’s capacity for criticism and negativity and the impact on us as we live with this day in and day out.

At our workshop with Tony Attwood in March 2015 someone in the audience asked Tony if people on the Spectrum are normally pessimistic or is it from childhood trauma and issues.  Tony’s answer was that pessimism, negativity, “glass half empty”, etc seem to “come with the territory” of being AS.

It seems that many adults on the spectrum compulsively focus on what’s not complete or correct and compulsively need to correct it.

Rather soul destroying when the object of constant criticism and correction is us.
