This means, I’m strong and precocious with words, but I treat them like numbers and patterns. I apply them in contexts based on the patterns I see, using my working memory, and from the answers and clues that I find. I have a strong working memory script, because as a child I incessantly observed the way people spoke. It often was from movies and TV.
This can really drain my energy, sometimes. I only have a certain amount of "forks" before I need to shut down, and recharge. I am referring to “forks” as that is what my friend and I measure autistic mental energy to "translate."
