Reading up on “central coherence theory”, the idea that neurotypical people can see “the big picture” while people on the autistic spectrum get “lost in the details”. This article is from a different perspective, instead seeing people on the autistic spectrum as systemitizing (noticing and creating systems), which flies in the face of the notion of autistic people having “weak coherence” – as noticing systems is certainly a big picture ability. Rather, the writer suggests, there is a standard cognitive BIAS among neurotypicals to lean towards empathizing, so much so that it can blind neurotypicals to common scams and scam artists repeatedly. http://alyric.blogspot.com/2005/10/a-muse-part-1-drive-for-central.html
