Flat Affect

You scare me“, by Cynthia Kim (Musings of an Aspie blog). Describes “flat affect”/blank facial expressions, and shares some photos to illustrate it. “From my reading about Asperger’s I was aware of the difficulty aspies have in reading facial expressions, but it hadn’t occurred to me that I don’t project appropriate facial expressions–or sometimes any expression at all. The technical term for this is flat affect, which means that a person displays reduced emotional expressiveness.”
