3. Behavioral Symptoms

Behavioral symptoms are more extreme in males than in females and can include autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit disorder, and social anxiety. Males with this condition have a tendency to bite and flap their hands and to become aggressive. However, people often describe them as being kind and helpful and as having a good sense of humor.

Females sometimes share behavioral traits with males, but more commonly tend to express the syndrome through social anxiety, emotional disturbances, self-harm, and extreme shyness. Some females exhibit no behavioral symptoms.
