    You could use a darker color text for your sig cuz it's kinda hard to read. Hows that?

    Okay. Niffer. This isn't exactly a criticism of you in specific. But I've known a lot of young people who, like you, were unusually bright and perceptive. Many of them had a rough time as they grew into adulthood. When you're very bright, I think sometimes you figure some important stuff out sooner than others-- but before you've got the benefit of being fully developed. That can sometimes make your later life seem somewhat empty, because the things people who developed at the usual rate are experiencing as adults, you experienced as a teen when you didn't have the freedom to enjoy them fully. It can sometimes feel like you peaked early, and that feeling really sucks. (I've felt it myself.)

    I hope that makes sense and doesn't seem too condescending. I really enjoy having you here.

    You're not serious enough. Then again, I think that about everyone.

    You're sensitive internally, but don't communicate this well.

    That made me think of two things:

    "Twenty years of groping to prove the things I'd done before were not accidents... seminars and lectures to rows of fools who couldn't begin to understand my systems... colleagues, laughing behind my back at the 'Boy Wonder' and becoming famous, building on my work -- building on my work!" -- Dr. Richard Daystrom, "The Ultimate Computer"

    Nah, everyone knows the stuff I know. They just don't think about it. I have actually wondered though about what I would be like in the future. Are you saying I'm going to have to sit it out for a while till I get the goodies? xD

    I know! Tell me how I can!! It's a horrible issue of mine, but I'd have to alter my entire image, wouldn't I? Btw, for your later post, I don't see how the second quote relates to it.

    Thanks for all the...compliments, rofl. And @ htb.

    That was related to Ivy's post, actually. She was talking about people who peak early in life, and spend the rest of their lives trying to surpass their earlier achievements, and never being able to do so. It wasn't really about you in particular.

    I felt like I matured earlier than my friends and was always looking to hang out with an older crowd. I finally now at 23 feel like I've caught up with my age.

    Maybe it's an enfp thing?

    I am also starting to think that as much as we don't like negative feedback, we crave it as well to better ourselves. I find I do this alot on message boards where people know me really well and with close friends.
