I've been told by people that sitting on the floor is an autistic thing? like during my therapy appointments, I prefer to sit on her carpeted floors and talk than in a chair or somethjng and roommate said it might be an autism thing. Is it that true? could it be? cause I've never heard that before?

      Haven't heard of this before, but I LOVE sitting on the floor, and actually even more than that, like laying on the floor flat on my back.

      My environmental science teacher noticed that and mentioned it. It does cause less pain though so might be that too

      I prefer the floor but I think it has more to do with my spine. Chairs are just uncomfortable

        @Atheris I also prefer floor

      A lot of neurodiverse people sit “weirdly” or prefer to be on the floor, but there are some who don’t, just like some NT people like to sit differently/be on the floor. I have definitely seen it joked about amongst the ND community, though, because of how many of us highly prefer that.

      I think it's a neurodiverse thing to not be comfortable sitting normally. I heavily prefer to sit with one or both legs crossed/folded on my seat or couch.

        @goronkiss I can never sit comfortably in chairs or anything "normally," My roommate and I joke about how its because im LGBTQ+ LOL

        @goronkiss I can agree with this. There seems to be an ND issue with sitting "appropriately," whether it's moving around due to ADHD, not getting comfortable in a position, the texture of what you're sitting on, etc. I always sit on the arms and back of couches for no real reason other than it feels right. (Side note: suspected but not diagnosed autistic, but I do have ADHD and other disorders)

      It can be something autistic people do but it’s not at all a reason to diagnose autism, neurotypical people can do it if they like too you can’t look at singular things you do or feel and put it down to a disability or illness, autism takes a lot of traits for a long time before it’s autism

      • Vengefulgayunicorns

        449d

        @Igglepiggle I understand and I definitely wasn't using it to diagnose or anything. I just thought that if it was true, it was interesting

          @Vengefulgayunicorns you’ll find there’s a lot of autistic traits that will be interesting :) loads of relatable stuff for both neurodiverse and neurotypical that makes sense widely for autism, I’m diagnosed autistic and adhd

      Yes it can be however Just because u like sitting on the floor don't make u autistic, take me for example I'm autistic and I don't like sitting on the floor at all

        @lightningstorm I know that, but i was just wondering if what my roommate said was actually true or not

It could be related to autism, as one user mentioned that laying on the floor in their room helps them feel grounded and provides the sensory input they need. However, this is not a definitive indicator of autism, as preferences for sitting or laying on the floor can vary among individuals.
