What Is NT?

Neurotypical syndrome is a neurobiological disorder characterized by
preoccupation with social concerns, delusions of superiority, and obsession
with conformity.

Neurotypical individuals often assume that their experience of the world is
either the only one, or the only correct one. NTs find it difficult to be
alone. NTs are often intolerant of seemingly minor differences in others.
When in groups NTs are socially and behaviorally rigid, and frequently
insist upon the performance of dysfunctional, destructive, and even
impossible rituals as a way of maintaining group identity. NTs find it
difficult to communicate directly, and have a much higher incidence of lying
as compared to persons on the autistic spectrum.

NT is believed to be genetic in origin. Autopsies have shown the brain of
the neurotypical is typically smaller than that of an autistic individual
and may have overdeveloped areas related to social behavior.

with autistic persons.
