Autism and learning process

Is this a symptom of autism...It's pretty complicated to google

I feel like I'm constantly learning or realizing common sense things that people my age around me have learned a long time ago. I can't think of any good examples but almost everytime I decide to engage in conversation I hear "You didn't know that!?"

Also, not being able to make connections. For example, it takes me a loooong time go get phrases such as
"Page is to book as blank is to blank"
cant think of any cause...well im terrible at them

I hope this isn't like..stupidity I have alot of other symptoms of aspergers just wondering if this was another piece to my puzzle
thanks

Re: Autism and learning process

Your post does not sound stupid at all. It may be Aspergers' but it could also be a verbally mediated learning disability. Did you experience problems in school with reading and learning? That may provide a clue.

Re: Autism and learning process

You're not stupid. It's just that aspies see things differently and make connections that others didn't see. also, the "moo is to cow as bark is to dog" type of questions often utilize fairly advanced vocabulary so not understanding the meaning of words in those questions might be hindering aspies to do as well on those sort of questions.
