Some people will like the emoji that says “think,” while others may prefer the “crazy” emoji, the report said.
But while many people like the “thinking” emoji and those who like the crazy emoji would prefer the former, people with autistic traits like autism spectrum disorder and autism spectrum disorders (ASD) would prefer “crazy,” the report found.
It also found that while some people have no preference at all for the two, people who are autistic tend to like “crazy.”
Some people have different preferences, however.
Some people have preferences for the “talking” emoji (a “talk”) and “talking crazy” (a speech).
Some people prefer “talking stupid” and “thinking stupid.”
Some other factors can influence people’s preferences, the study found, including whether they have a language disorder, have autism, have multiple languages or have special needs.
People with ASD are more likely to use language or read more than people without autism, the researchers said.
Some of the research suggested that the language and reading ability may help people with autism find jobs or help them interact with others, the AP news service reported.
More to come.
