Bleszynski’s human-to-primate social regression

Stan Bleszynski has a series of posts on human-to-primate social regression. I like the gist mostly because I pull from the same hat. Stan asked are autistics more human? I wondered the same thing when I was thinking about Göbekli Tepe and ketones. I think autistics are more human. I think that at one point those characteristics were more prevalent. A few quotes (not in any particular order), the other points should be fairly obvious to social retards:

No it is not the society and the social skills that made us human, it was the lack of it! Those who spend their time partying and socializing create no wealth and no value. Those who tinker, build, experiment and learn science – do! It was the “nerddom” that drove us forward while social skills held us backwards towards social competition, stress, warfare and death. (Bleszynski, 2010)

Comments? We should draw our own conclusions, but I could not help noticing that the attributes of the corporate culture that the Specialisterne Aspergers’ people found unbearable are the same that _I_ find unbearable! They are the same attributes and habits that most of my fellow engineers find unbearable! (Bleszynski, 2011a)

The Individualists’ worth is in “doing”. Often stigmatized as social outcasts, they work, often unrecognized, un-applauded and underpaid, to follow their ideals, to produce the dies for tools, designs for goods, products, services. They spend lonely years creating sculptures, music, or canvasses or proving a new scientific theory. Their worth is in “doing”. (Bleszynski, 2011b)

    I think there might be some rationalization behind the Bleszynski argument. The reality he is talking about does exist, but perhaps not for the reasons he thinks it does. I would say testosterone probably plays a role moreso than autism.

    Those low in T but high in intelligence will be more likely to be socially withdrawn. T seems to cultivate an intrinsic sense of self worth, but low T individuals will probably be more likely to feel that their worth needs to be earned. So the low T give freely, and the high T take freely, and that seems to be how it has always been.

    Accordingly, the only mental respite granted to the low T individual is the idealization of their position on moralistic grounds. I think both the outgoing, boisterous, inconsiderate personality and the withdrawn, “autistic”, nerdy personality are necessary for societal progression.

    I think the two personality types work together in the sense that, the individualist works for the intrinsic reward of working, and creating. However, I think individualists may get so mired in the minutiae of creation that they have little concern for practical implementation, or the drive to push their creation into a prominent place within a competitive marketplace, meaning their great idea or invention that might have changed the world ultimately falls by the wayside. This is where the extroverted personality comes into play. Their goals are less idea-centered, more power/domination centered, and they can use these drives to actualize the brilliant ideas and inventions of the individualist. Sometimes you see both traits manifesting in one individual, sometimes you see duos, like Jobs/Wozniak.
