We like things. They fixate on objects.
We try to make friends. They display attention-seeking behaviors.
We take a break. They display off-task behavior.
We stand up for ourselves. They are non-compliant.
We have hobbies. They self-stim.

We persevere. They perseverate.
We love people. They have dependencies on people.
We go for walks. They run away.
We insist. They tantrum.
We change our minds. They are disoriented and have short attention spans.
We are talented. They have splinter skills.
We are human. They are…….?
