Well, I've had people think that of me because I am very shy in person. It is only if I know a person very well, or in my writing that I let all of me come out.
I used to worry about stuff like this. So I can't talk worth sh*t in public and scramble my words all up. At least I have venues of communication.
I suspect it is not shyness so much as a form of 'sensory overload'. When I view what I'm saying in print, I can see it, order it and perfect it to the way I see fit. What comes out of my mouth is sometimes scrambled and it's frustrating, but I keep working with it.
Autism is really something else. It's not 'daydreaming', etc, etc. Maybe we're the thing between 'normals' and 'autistics'. I dunno.

Thinking things out beforehand is just one mode of doing things. Not that it is any better or worse than the more common mode of just doing it and reacting to the results, whatever they may be. Whereas others play it by ear and make quick decisions based more on gut feelings rather than logical reasoning, others are handicapped in a fast-paced society by having to balance out all of the possible scenarios before even attempting to take the first daring step into the unknown. Does that make sense?

Yes, that makes sense...
