Do people have problems understanding how you communicate? These are just a few of the questions that you should probably ask yourself.
    Perhaps my expectations of others are too high.

    I was sheltered during my formative years of schooling in that I was surrounded by, and immersed within, a group of predominantly gifted students. Having been raised in this environment, I somewhat naively thought that this subset of the population was at least slightly representative of the norm.

    Long story short, I do not fit in at my current university. I constantly filter what I say and still my peers often ask me to define words and meet my comments with wide-eyed puzzlement. My profs more often than not view me as some kind of threat, and this just gives me the willies, and makes me feel super sad.

    And no, my opinion of myself is not too high, in fact it is probably a tad-bit more on the lower side, if anything. Only recently have I become a bit more confident in my intellectual abilities, (yeah, my dad made it a point to tell me I was of average intelligence from a very young age).


    I dunno, perhaps I should transfer.

    Two curses:

    I feel disconnected from most of my peers.

    And because of this I feel alienated and lonely, lonely, lonely.

    Gah!!!

    :sad:



    :steam:

    :sad:

    Any thoughts, opinions and, or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    I sympathize with you. I wouldn't say that I am different in a special way, I just don't seem to get how things are supposed to work around here.

    My only workaround so far was to blatantly indulge things I find stupid and drink alot of alcohol to numb the senses.

    I feel the alcohol thing starting to work, I am constantly loosing my mind's capacity.

    • I'm seen as crazy and stupid (in a bad way).
    • I lose jobs because I have no interest in being like the rest of the flock.
    • I'm a victim of bullying, which leads me to fear leaving home.

    WHAT THE FUCK?!?!?!

    DUDE, I AM AN ENFP, REMEMBER???

    WHAT KIND OF ASSHOLE MONSTER DO YOU TAKE ME FOR?!!?!?

    THAT IS *NOT* HOW I DO!!!

    Be happy in the fact that you are gifted, not angry.
    I am not angry, just frustrated, that's all.

    Be available to people, not judgmental. Be open to people, not closed. Then you shall surely find the love and camaraderie that you seek.
    Once again, I am an ENFP!!!

    I started this thread out of desperation.

    I am available, and nonjudgmental, I am open to people and not closed.

    Yet I am still unable to find the love and camaraderie that I seek.

    Hence my sadness and frustration!!!

    Deep breath, dear.

    You do realize you are coming off not as frustrated but as lashing out at people whose advice you asked for?

    I wouldn't mention it, but it's a pretty typical posting pattern; and your OP is saying that you feel alienated and lonely and disconnected from your peers all the time; and you're asking for advice.

    And you really DON'T portray yourself as someone with low self-esteem, but high self-esteem; maybe that's just a defense mechanism?

    In any case, when you respond this way and wear this sort of public persona (the devil-may-care, hell-on-wheels chick), people are disinclined to communicate. Hence, you become alienated --> feel alienated because you are.

    (Maybe other things are involved too in your feelings of alienation, and can be discussed, but this is part of it.)

    Oh, I missed all this.

    And probably all your friends are as nice as you - as like attracts like.
    You are the kinda dame I could take home to my mother.
    I had someone tell me I had the quintessential "girl next door" image.

    I'm not sure yet whether this was a compliment or a poke.

    What could I do with you that wouldn't make me feel guilty? - Not bloody much.
    Bwa ha ha, but you'd be allowing me to fulfill my lifelong ambitions to create guilt in whomever I meet.

    A real mother-******.
    A dame who would allow me to breathe easily with a clear conscience.

    "But if you give off a vibe that we are all miserable peons, we will of course cast you aside. People want folks that lift them up, not tear them down."

    I apologize, but I found this comment to be both accusatory and unsubstantiated.

    WTF!??!?!

    I am not putting down anyone nor am I glorifying myself, rather I am expressing frustration with my current situation.

    This isn't a, "woo-hoo I am smert and you are dum" thread!

    Gah!!!

    *frustrated*

    We can try to build an UFO with a huge umbrella and some fire distinguishers. Then we fly over the MBTIc and flash green, red and blue lights.

    Gonna see, who feels alienated then
