I'm looking for a list of symptoms/traits that are more or less exclusive to adult males with an ASD, separate from the general list of symptoms for anyone with an ASD. If possible, can only the male members reply with symptoms to add to the list please, as I would prefer first hand accounts, and not observations. These can possibly be true for some females on the spectrum but I'm more looking for things that would differ from an NT male, where an NT female may reasonably experience these. This list is symptoms my brother has that I don't, that I cross referenced online and found other males to list as symptoms also. trouble having positive feelings about self assumes they aren't good looking so don't care about personal appearance not good at accepting or believing praise or positive comments about self difficulty remembering ever feeling carefree prone to mood swings verbally aggressive at times, if not prompted about mood and tone difficulties with intimacy @Ben @Asgardian @StarlessEclipse @StormCrow @Max000 @Peridot @Harrow - if any of you would be willing to help? Additional list from research so far: tend to lead fairly solitary lives reluctant to seek support Poor short term memory and recall Easily upset and discouraged by rejections from the opposite sex (or the gender of romantic preference) Easily manipulated by the opposite sex (or the gender of romantic preference) Noticeable differences in interests compared to similarly aged same sex counterparts Struggles to accept lack of talent in an area of interest
