Thanks for pointing that out Steven, it's a good point and interesting to think about. I guess what we meant to say is the majority of people are born with this capacity. For those people I know on the spectrum, they explain that they don't instinctively internalise these social norms, but some of them, sometimes out of necessity and sometimes out of choice, teach themselves how to follow these. We'll have a think about it and perhaps amend the article.
