    Default Ever have one of those weird personal realizations suddenly dawn on you?

    I just realized that I can't yell. It's either a physical defect, or an extremely internalized psychological restraint. I'm thinking the latter is more plausible.

    I was just thinking about these things me and my brothers would do. We use to record these sound clips, that were kind of like comedy routines (and I think some were pretty funny, if I do say so myself). Sometimes we'd also just break into character and start having dialogues with each other (even when other people were around ). both of these sorts of "acting" sometimes required yelling... But I always did this sort of fake, breathy, low volume non-yell, which I didn't consider much until my INTJ brother specifically referred to it, and identified it as something purely my own. He wondered why I wouldn't do the real thing.

    Ruminating on that, it occured to me that I cannot project my voice when singing. Whenever I sing a part of a song that requires vocal chords to be clenched up like when yelling, I do something breathy and low volume again...

    And finally, it occured to me that I cannot recall yelling in a fight! I maintain my composure pretty well, so I don't get that emotive very often anyhow. But when I do express anger, I don't yell my words, rather I do something kind of hard to describe. I spit out my words. I throw them. They're like knives or darts or something. But it's always a quiet or normal volume, and I don't even tighten my throat like when (trying) to yell.

    So... With no one in the house to disturb, I thought I could try yelling. But I can't get myself to do it! I'm seriously convinced that if someone offered me $500 dollars to yell, I'd miss 500 bucks.

    I guess this probably seems really random... But I just thought it was so freaking weird that I can't yell that I would tell everyone about it. Especially since I didn't even think about it until now. How did I miss that?

    okay...just scanned it sorry...but...yeah...i do...i have.
    i have profound self realizations pretty often, i think.

    and that's kind of an odd one for you right...how interesting.

    Most likely. I might be the same way if it wasn't for my 6th grade drama teacher.

    That's really random Magic!!

    It dawned on my recently (within the past year.) that I hardly ever have a night where I'm not dreaming. It's just so normal for me, that I don't notice it. and only talk about dreams that seem more realistic, or outside of the normal ones.

    I want more dreams. If I had your dreams, would I enjoy it?

    Are your dreams anything like mine?

    LOL, Magic!! You non-yelling mutant. :-p

    I don't know when my hair is standing on end or the last time I brushed it. That's the best I can do. lol Your non-yelling stole the show (quietly).

    That sounds like something of an epiphany, but unfortunately not at all like a catharsis.

    Must have been an interesting experience.

    it hit me like a ton of bricks, actually. i try to be nice when i like someone, and to find out that they didn't know i was actively being nice, effected me. so much so that ever since it happened, i've become much more aware of how someone that i care about could take what i'm saying.
