I recently finished Create Your Own Economy by Tyler Cowen and loved it. I found it to be an insightful treatise on the Autistic Spectrum and it raised many thoughts which are still bouncing around my head.
As a self-diagnosed Aspie – I was particularly fascinated by the part about degrees of difference, mainly that some people can appreciate/perceive some things, music, food, books, etc, to a far higher degree than others. I thought I would create some lists for future reference.
High degree of perception list
- Music written in pentatonic scales
- Word choice
- Written History
- Driving pattens (I can predict what people in front of me will do)
- Speeches and internal messaging
- Verbal tone
Low degree of perception list
- Classical music
- Body language
What does all this have to do with Stronico? I’m not sure, but I was inspired to make several changes to the app after reading the book, though I find the reasons to do so unclear.
