Confused by the lack of noticing expressions etc yet having a kind of sixth sense.

I've done some research online but unable to find anything concrete to show you. All I can think of is we notice things that other people notice and can put the clues together to reach a conclusion. This can be done in a scripted way so we can appear less affected by our autism than we actually are. We have adapted in a way and this is considered a positive coping strategy. Also family members are easier to 'read' socially than complete strangers. I am more likely to laugh at a joke that someone i know makes than someone i dont know even if they make the same joke. This is presuming it's my sense of humour as well. Hope I am making sense here?
