Okay I’m making an experiment my hypothesis is that autistic people seem more hyperflexible than non autistic people so I’m gonna list a set of skills and if you’re autistic then say what skills you can do and if you’re not autistic then say what skills you can do from this list:
1: lick your nose
2: bend your thumb to touch your forearm
3: turn your tongue on its side (not rolled up like a tube literally turned on one side)
4: raise one eyebrow
5: raise one side of your upper lip
6: put your palms together and separate your fourth finger without separating your palms or other fingers
7: wiggle your ears
8: bend your arms further than the normal range
So I can do 1, 3, 5, 6, 7 (just) and 8 and I’m autistic (self dx with help from friends etc)
Also when people do it can you state whether you’re autistic or not please?
To clarify number 8 means your arm bends further back than most people’s and instead of being straight horizontally it bends from the elbow hang on I’ll link a pic
A trick of tether dynamics: If you drop a metal ring down a straight chain loop, rather than falling straight off it’ll catch itself into a loop, because a travelling wave moves down the chain. The whiplash of the wave kicks the end of the chain upwards. The ring falls into the hole and gets stuck. Try it yourself!
