Neurotypical is a word used to describe a person who has a typical brain. This not only includes non-autistic people, but also people without mental illnesses, intellectual disabilities or any other neurological illness or disorder such as epilepsy or brain tumours. It is the opposite of neurodivergent.

A term popularly used by people who have been diagnosed or believe to fit the criterias for Asperger's Syndrom or Autism. The term refers to societ's ideal that some people are considered "normal" and some people are not.

A person whoam some Autistic or Aspie considers "normal" is a Neurotypical. The plural form Neurotypicals refers to
two or more groups of people who are considered to be "normal."
Life would be better for everyone if Neurotypicals were honest with one another instead of droping hints and beating around the bush.

Neuro-Typical: Individuals whose neurological pathology renders their sensory functioning, social skills and cognitive skills typical.

Neurotypical is a term used by autistic individuals to reference the unique subset of differences that define life on the autism spectrum.

The fact that people born onto the autism spectrum refer to non-autistic individuals as neurotypicals is not an attempt to stand apart from neurologically typical society. Autistic people coined the tern Neurotypical to help us make sense of and find peace within this Neurotypical community that we do not and can not always make sense of any other way.

People suggest that autistic individuals want to be different while claiming to want to be treated as normal. This is wrong. An autistic individual can no more be normal than a black person can pretend to be white. An autistic person demands RESPECT and nothing more from this, neurotypical world. The autistic demand of respect from this worlds neurotypical majority is no more than is demanded any other minority on Earth!
Bob and Jane are Kewl because while they are both Neurotypical they understand my many autism caused life challenges.

A term used my by people who fall within the Autism Spectrum. Often mistaken by idiots with an IQ below 50 (i.e. the person above, Enemy of Hypocrisy) as a term to belittle those who don't have Autism.
It's difficult for Aspies and Neurotypicals to understand each other; especially when some green carnation wearing assholes, like Enemy of Hypocrisy, are constantly splitting the gap between the two groups

A blanket term used by people who fall (whether by physician diagnosis or the all to common self diagnosis) within the autism spectrum to describe the non-autistic. An incredibly hypocritical term considering their pleas to be "treated equally" yet they insist on creating a term to designate all who are different. Irony is apparently lost to the autistic.
The Neurotypicals need to acknowledge the obvious superiority of the Autistic!

A term used to refer to individuals who possess "normal" or typical intelligence, generally within an IQ range of 80-110. Sometimes used by self-actualized individuals to refer those who are not yet self-actualized. Can be used as a pejorative, in place of "stupid" or "lacking high functioning neurological processes".
"I don't understand why neurotypicals blindly follow government propaganda!"

"That guy is so neurotypical, he can't even do basic algebra."

"Physics and other pure and applied sciences are generally very difficult subjects for neurotypicals to understand."

A bullshit buzzword used by self-diagonosed autistics to imply that anyone who doesn't suffer from their condition has had an easy life and thus has no right to complain about anything. Often shortened to "NT".
Your posts shows a complete lack of empathy, you're obviously a Neurotypical trolling us.
