  1. aMean and 95% bootstrap bias-corrected and accelerated confidence intervals (in parentheses) are given for the control and ASC groups. AG’s performance is given in the third column. On each measure except for SFA, AG’s performance was more extreme than the 95% confidence intervals for both control and ASC groups. ASC, Autism Spectrum Conditions; PSCS, Private Self-Consciousness Scale; SFA, implicit index of self-focused attention based on the percentage of first-person pronouns used in the Self-Focus Sentence Completion task; TAS, Toronto Alexithymia Scale; DIF, Difficulty Identifying Feelings subscale of TAS-20; DDF, Difficulty Describing Feelings subscale of the TAS-20; EOT, Externally Oriented Thinking subscale from the TAS-20.
