    Hi Zarya,
    I guess the first question is – do you feel her answers are true? She says saying please and thank you are “annoying and stupid” as well as “fake.” She says she doesn’t answer people’s questions because “I hate answering stupid questions that don’t matter.”

    Those aren’t the responses of someone whose behaviors are driven by social anxiety or selective mutism. So either there is something more underneath or it is more of a true annoyance to her and is less about anxiety?
