I was folding laundry just now (and am still supposed to be,) and had sort of an epiphany about what might cause so much possibility anxiety in myself and perhaps other brains.
I think that NT people will most often think in statements, from what peers say. IE: “Ann looks kinda upset, it’s possible she doesn’t want me to be here. Ann wouldn’t have invited me over if she didn’t want me to be here, though.”
My brain thinks predominately in questions. “Does Ann look upset? Maybe she doesn’t want me to be here? But she invited me, so why wouldn’t she want me to be here?”
Obviously the first example leaves very little room for the brain to ask itself a bunch of questions. It’s straight, logical, and probably true. But the way my mind goes through the information leaves so much room to question outcomes, that it’s very easy to ask just the wrong question to make myself anxious. Do other brains feels this way? What do the NT people in your guy’s lives have to say about whether they think in statements or questions?
