I agree with @AlwaysConfused that this sounds very like someone with Asperger's. However, if you want a more "neutral" term, would Introvert help? Such a person - an Ixxx on the Myers-Briggs scale - typically finds their "energy levels" drain when in groups of people, and recharge when they are on their own.

There is serious work on this, despite it being a political minefield. You're probably looking for Lewandowsky, et al. (2015). If you want to get some distance from the issues of the day (and associated name calling) and into the mechanisms that drive this sort of phenomenon in general you might get more joy out of something like Cook & Lewandowsky (...

The description strongly matches with Autism, Autism spectrum disorder and Asperger syndrome. See also: Asperger syndrome Autism spectrum condition Autism Classically, Asperger syndrome was characterised by no obvious delay in language development, and in some cases Aspergers tend to have a very vast vocabulary.

The relationship between implicit bias and individual behaviour is not direct and does not satisfactorily explain biased behaviour on an individual basis. There are two studies that looked at cardiovascular disease, which does propose some interesting hypotheses. These studies add to the growing evidence that bias whether implicit or explicit is ...

Questionnaires and measurement scales typically take a lot of revision and validation. Otherwise, it is very common that you measure things you don't intend to measure, are missing relevant options, or omit critical factors entirely. I'd recommend some piloting and to use existing and validated measures whenever possible. Some of your items sound ...

This is a good question which cannot really be provided with scientifically proven reasons, so we can only look at possibilities. From personal experience as a therapist, anecdotally I can say that with some people, the meme would not be complete. With these people the situation would be I didn't think I would get this far so quickly and that could be ...

I don't know about Gupta & Mishra as I cannot find the paper you are referring to, but Allport & Ross (1967) on page 436 (page 5 of the pdf) points out that the full Religious Orientation scale has been deposited with the American Documentation Institute. You need to: Order Document No. 9268 from ADI Auxiliary Publications Project, ...

What you seem to be talking about here are cultural influences affecting your judgement on what is right and wrong to say and do in certain situations. Ecologies shape cultures, and cultures influence the development of personalities (Triandis & Suh, 2002). The conceptualization of culture is by no means a simple matter. One possible way to think ...
