    I'm not diagnosing you. I'm just saying that Mal doesn't have any idea what he is talking about, and doesn't actually know anything about diagnosing illnesses. Nothing you said seemed that weird to me, though. I wouldn't say that it necessarily means anything at all.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    I didn't realize it was the discussion about you. I just figured that any asocial person would be more likely ADD than with the "H" in it. Now that I realize it, there wouldn't be a reason to talk about that in the abstract here.

    Meh, I just assume you already figured it out. In any case, my experience is why I get so annoyed with this kind of thing, because I see a lot of people flap their gums about without actually knowing anything. But, it's not entirely about me, because I thought it was relevant to the entire issue of why you can't give causal diagnoses just because someone said something you thought sounded weird.

    I didn't diagnose anything.

    Ok. Case closed.

    I used to be *really* shy. But I'm reserved, too, so people did not read it as shyness, but aloofness. This was causing me problems because people would decide they did not like me when they had no idea what I was actually like. So when I was around twenty-eight, I started to observe, actively, how 'normal' people did things.

    That was when I decided conventional wisdom (Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.) was not working for me. I decided to just start talking my fool head off. Just stream of consciousness mouth diarrhea at anybody I needed to talk to.

    Now at the very least, people can make a more informed decision about whether or not they like me and, really, in this society, it's better to be thought a fool than to be thought unfriendly. So it's worked out pretty well and it has had the side effect of eliminating most of my shyness. Not all of it, but I can talk to just about anybody now without it being a big deal.

    I'm still mostly a hermit, but when I have to go do stuff and talk to people it doesn't freak me out so much or make me feel awkward.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Not a female, but as it happens, I turned 28 recently, and have been playing around with this a lot within the past year or so. I like what happens when I do this.

    True. Very true.
