Krister Palo’s fighting spirit regarding the challenges of having Asperger’s syndrome. No matter how hard it gets – never give up!
*I agree apart from on the Nuclear issue.
Emotionally gullible people give 100 percent of their trust to their friends or to the people they like. However, this can and often does lead to being let down by the people we open up to and feel hopeful about developing relationships with.
In this video I discuss my coping strategies for dealing with my own emotional gullibility which involve having high standards regarding the people I invite into my life. Something I forgot to […]
How I speak in real life…
My real voice and speaking style is monotone and my face is lacking in expression as I speak. The reason that I do not naturally have an expressive voice or speaking style is due to my having Asperger’s Syndrome. I taught myself how to become more expressive via the process of making videos for this YouTube channel. If you look back at older videos you will see a […]
I’ve been writing a series of posts in which I categorise different kinds of people into being empty people, half people, full people, or hermit people. And recently I realised that this is not something that most people can identify with, because it’s not how they experience socialising. I experience the social world in a very different way to most people. And part of my realisation has to do with my Asperger’s […]

People with Asperger’s Syndrome have no empathy – is it true?
It is widely said that people with Asperger’s Syndrome are not capable of empathy. In this video I share my own personal perspective on empathy as a person with Asperger’s traits / right-brained Asperger’s Syndrome.
Empathy is the abilities to put oneself in the shoes of someone else to be able to feel their feelings. While I am able to put myself in the shoes […]
This post follows on from ‘The Empty Feeling of Normal Friendship’.
In my “outsider” understanding, there are three kinds of people in the world:
Most people in the world are hollow people, and it is not possible to develop any sense of connection with them. No matter how much time you spend with a hollow person, a feeling of real connection never develops. If you […]
For most of my life I blamed myself for the suffering in my heart. I kept trying to change myself so that I could achieve connection with more people. Now I don’t try to change myself I am happy to be me. I am proud that I am open to life, whether or not other people want to connect with me.
This video is to remind you that Asperger’s is awesome:
The first thing that comes to mind when thinking of what makes a panic attack is hyperventilation and the often repeated advice of breathing into a paper bag. However, not all panic attacks involve obvious breathing difficulties, which can make them hard to identify. In fact, if you get sneaky panic attacks, you may have been having them for your whole life without even realising. Watch 10 signs of hard to identify panic attacks in the video […]
This post describes the alienating feeling of ‘normal’ friendship from the perspective of someone (me) who scores highly in having traits of Asperger’s Syndrome. It seems to me that the empty feeling of normal friendship is something felt also by a small percentage of people who, unlike me, don’t have traits of Asperger’s Syndrome. I don’t know what to call this other group of people, but I think that we share something in common both in […]
A list of classic and more subtle traits of Asperger’s Syndrome in adults:
Talking about muteness in foreign language situations.
This email is my advice reply to a fan email. The issue is that after a year and a half of studying English abroad in a language school he can still barely speak a word. During this experience his whole personality has changed from confident to shy.
He writes in his email that he was originally shy as a child / young person but he got over it in […]
