Like the healthy controls, they also focused more intently on the triangles engaged in a complex social interaction. But when asked to describe what the triangles were doing, people with autism tended to over-interpret, attributing intention to the triangles that were simply floating or moving in a straight line like billiard or tennis balls. I found these results particularly poignant — and not so Snake Eyes And Sissies - Marilyn Manson - Manson Massacre from the efforts of game but rhythmically-impaired celebrities to dance the tango.
