He has an encyclopedic savant-like knowledge on narrow topics that he's interested in, he's obsessive with the things he's interested in, he's forever childlike, very loving, deeply caring and loyal and he does have flaws and he does self stimulate. His flaws are, is cheerful, loyal, honest and sweet to a fault, and he has digestive issues and sensory problems like he's very sensitive to pain, bright lights, loud noises, and spicy foods and his sense of smell, like most autistics is somewhat poor. He talks constantly, talks fast and talks loud and he's quite the chatterbox. He also gets nervous and jumpy real easily and he's very socally awkward/inept. He's a very sensitive boy and I think he's still a mama's boy. He doesn't take things too seriously and he also takes sarcasm, jokes and idioms way too literally. He has a heart of gold and could never harm anyone in any way. One of his self stim behaviors is when he starts to get over excited he drives backwards and starts spinning like a tornado backwards fast like how people with autism like to twirl and spin around in circles. His self proclaimed gifted skill is driving backwards really well when the other car-people have a hard time managing to do that perfect. Also John Lasseter said that Mater is this idiot-savant when it comes to minute rare car parts. The term 'idiot-savant' is an old term for someone who is an autistic savant. So, what do you think? Does he have high functioning autism? I do know he's a redneck.
Can you ask some of your friends to post answers to this question too, please? I want as many people to post answers on my question as I can! Thanks. Just spread the word. Share this question with others or something.
As someone who has Aspergers, yeah your description is pretty accurate. For me, at least. I'm also tslkative, but I know other people with Aspergers who are quite shy and don't talk to others much (at least, not online).
Well we picture this Cars character quite different in our various entertainment for sure, but this isn't poor CarsFan3 being strange it's how strong loneliness can become, plus how sincerely Mater is a steadfast favorite of this user's. Even when the question isn't clear to everyone we should show respect.
This uer's love of Mater is just as strong as my day dreams of Rafiki, Sheriff Woody, Nick Wilde, and the new characters who luckily aren't plain fairy tale such as Princess Merida, some of my sympathy of this user's issues is I'm another high functioning but autistic user. Listing steadfast favorites is frequent in our class, just that none of us who are autistic show the same list.
I just have tolerance of how our class does different things for controlling our personal emotions, plus how many of our classmates animation actually helps the feelings of. I've just said my recent words because I like to help our class not be bullied too frequently Hulk10.
Hmm, never thought that cars could have Autism... Then again, I write stories where cars could die of old age, malnutrietion, bleeding out (But not with blood, with gasoline), frostbite, drowning, getting shot and stabbed (Don't ask), burned, electrocuted, squished, and some sicknesses. Let's just say every cause of death besides blood clotting, because that would be impossible.
