what area now covers the ground where an adult X is (MUCH more than the norm) so locked into her own perspective in a wide range of social situations that she
- deeply believes that her perspective defines the truth
- does not recognise that other people have quite different perspectives on the 'same situation'Some examples - from lots and frequently recurring - could be as diverse as
- X repeatedly asking a companion to put on warm clothes (because X is cold) even though the companion repeatedly explains that they are warm
- X becoming angry about a situation (where X does not have first hand knowledge) based on X's misunderstanding. Then X being so locked into that perspective that X totally disrespectfully ***** ***** attempts of a person with first hand knowledge of the situation to provide additional clarifying info
- X berating a speaker in public, having decided that some aspect of the speaker's conduct violated some internal 'should' of X, without taking into account the likely embarrassment for the speaker or audience
- X telling others how they will have experienced and event, rather than asking (eg 'You will have had a wonderful day with your mum yesterday.' And not e.g. 'How did
you get on with your mum yesterday?'
