    For example, was there any book or conversation that really sparked your imagination like no other?

    Or was there a defining moment that caused you to be interested in science, philosophy, journalism ect...?

    If so could you share what the event was and the effect it had on you?

    I am interested in defining moments in people's lives and I was curious what that would look like for an NT.
    I'm having one now, but I can't talk about it just yet.

    My guess.
    I actually corrected my gifted and talented teacher about his spelling on the chalk board in front of the whole class.

    My defining T moment was in Kindergarten. I went to check out Jules Verne books from the library. The librarian told me I couldn't possibly be capable of reading books that level yet. I didn't say anything to her because she was the adult, but I distinctly remember thinking she was ignorant because I had been reading similar level material for a year and a half.

    Edit: I'm not a brain or anything. My parents pushed my education earlier than normal.

    I was nine, at the wedding of my mother's cousin. I was going through my first animal taxanomy phase, and my mom's cousin worked with primates. She had a lot of other friends that did stuff concerning animals.

    I approached four zoologists at a table, told them about monotremes and the giant pangolin. They thought I was making it all up. If I had the damn book where I got it from with me, I would have shown it to them.

    Oddly, the situation didn't make me angry. I was at a loss, though.

    Ditto. I'll add that there was little discretion used in getting into these logical debates. I had little respect for authority derived from position, which meant that I visited principals' offices from kindergarten through the last year of high school. "But why?", "but that doesn't make sense", and "wouldn't it work better if..." were my anthems. I remember myself as a good kid, but not everybody would agree I also was inseparable from things like encyclopedias, dictionaries, etc. and had no interest in dolls, etc. I had homemade labs before I got into classes where I could play with the real stuff

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    Eh, my more daring experiments were during a time when I placed little value on life. I was a very bored and depressed grade schooler.

    I invented two languages by the time I was 15. And by languages I mean they were developed to the point of decent communicability. I even developed individual grammatics for each, including writing patterns and explanations for dipthong use.
