I've sort of been wondering about this but can't quite reach a conclusion. Do people on the autistic spectrum, so including Asbergers and autistic traits, not understand humour and then sometimes feel upset as a consequence?
My younger niece was diagnosed as having autistic traits and she doesn't understand most jokes. She can get upset about it rather quickly.
But then an older man I know who also has autistic traits is very funny when he wants to be and does understand others' humour.
So what's the deal in your experience or opinion?
