Said Gavin. ‘Ouch means I’m in pain,’ I explained. ‘Well, I like pain; if you say ouch, I think that you’re enjoying it. ’ 5. Travelling to Australia: The White Board After our first argument things settled down again and finally we were ready to fly overseas. Everything seemed fine until we arrived in Jakarta. I had no idea that Gavin’s thinking must have switched from ‘Tape B’ to ‘Tape A’. Switzerland had been a blank tape, he had no set rules for life there, but now that we were approaching Australia he reached for ‘Tape A’.

When am I meant to be understanding and when can I be entertaining? If we think about emotions in a logical way we soon realize how complicated it would be if we couldn’t use intuition to help us along. People with AS don’t have this privilege, they have to deal with emotions in a logical way. This makes interaction with others very challenging.
