Jordan cannot transfer the same action from one situation to the same situation the next time. For example we eat in this same pizza place for the past 9 years. We have to clean up after we eat. It's the same routine every time (something I though he thrived on). After we are done eating, he asks the same question, "What do I do with my dirty stuff?". When I say to him "What do you think you should do with your dirty stuff?", he says "If I knew, I wouldn't have asked you." He's dead serious. Mind you we've never had anyone clear off our table when we were done eating, it's always us. It's like each experience is a complete picture, not a continous movie, so he doesn't build on his experiences and carry forward.
Does anyone know what this is called, if there is a name for it? It drives me crazy. I know he's not pulling my leg because he's really confused. He's done it to my parents (with equally shocked reactions from them), so I know it's just not me.
