Aspies tend to be blunt. Many of us will learn to make sure we don't hurt people's feelings but we prefer when it's all laid out, instead of hemming and hawing and guessing. How often have I had to tell people "I am not a psychic!". I know I break so many neurotypical conversation rules it's not funny. I ignore things like status when conversing with people, and too much of my life had to learn to "filter" so I would get along with people but I have to admit outside of a few close neurotypical friends I am at most at ease in conversation with Aspies, because I don't have to censor every other little thing. I do see the neurotypicals communicating a lot via body language and inferred meanings. These things are far harder for an Aspie.
