    I don't think I was very easy to decipher. I was very good at sports, but also extremely nerdy in the way I expressed myself and in most of my interests (with the exception, of course, of sports themselves). I used to do math and physics competitions and the like, things that didn't exactly garner you the respect of your peers. I liked to dance at parties, but I was extremely shitty at the typical "small-talk" that composes the greatest majority of interactions there.
    This attitude changed progressively as I became older and I understood better the typical rules of social conduit, however my image was already screwed by that point in time ahaha
    The weirdest part, for me, was dating. I've never been rejected when I asked a girl to go out on a date; however, usually, after just 30 minutes I was classified as "too weird" or something lol

    I felt like this most of the time.

    But, looking back, I realized I tried a lot of stuff--wasn't particular great at any of it.

    Was on the track team, football team, math team, programming team, and JETS for a while, and even did Future Problem Solvers and Student Government for a couple of weeks each.

    I was just a nerdy high school kid. Now, I am a nerdy adult.

    Actually, before high school, there were many kids who thought I was a deaf-mute.

    In high school:

    -Quiet
    -Smart, but underachieving.
    -Quietly mischievous. Girl + Smart + Quiet = never get caught/in trouble/punished even if you are caught. I was the continuous exception to the rules.
    -Late to school and to every class.
    -Hung out with weirdos. Two lesbians, one gay dude, many strange-looking grunge and neo-hippy sorts. Also got along well with nerds, though I refused to be identified with that group. Alienated all my friends after graduation.
    -Smart-ass and obstinate. Liked to argue with the teacher if needed.
    -Was that student who argued with the teacher after class about the inherent subjectivity of participation grades, and why they should therefore not be included.
    -Hated math after 11th grade. Was adored by my art teacher and photography teacher. Oh, and physics teacher (the only science I ever liked).
    -Slightly rebellious, though not to the extreme extent of many that I knew.
    -Took college courses in 11th and 12th grade at local college. Was much better than being physically in high school. I got like two hours off as a result.
    -Continuous parking tickets for parking on the street and not in the student lot.
    -Thought many of my teachers were less intelligent than myself (which is to say that I had an inflated little ego).

    Edit: I didn't even notice this was in the SP section. Sorry for colonizing your area (though I'm not the first NT here, heh).

    I was very quiet and kept to myself most of the time. I had one best friend. Most of the teachers loved me. I hated science and math, though I usually did fairly decent, at least in science. Algebra and Geometry are so not my thing. I wasn't really in any group in particular. ^^; I didn't do well enough in class to be a nerd. I wasn't athletic or pretty enough to be popular. <.< Zummm... I was too quiet and 'normal' to really be a goth, although most of the girls accepted me. I was accepted by a lot of people, though mostly the girls. There were some who tried to make my life a living hell though. And they left me alone when they ended up meeting the wall in one way or another. I'll say nothing more.
    I have no idea who I am. All I can say is let's rock hard.

    'Colonizing' our area? LOL. Is that what you feel when other types post in the general NT section?

    EDIT: I meant 'think', not 'feel'.

    No. I just wanted a semi-humorous way to say that I didn't notice that this was the SP section.

    But actually, there are substantially more NT's than SP's, so there is the chance that threads in the SP section could be taken over totally by NT's...and that wouldn't be good .

    Default What were/are you like in school?

    Grade school: In class, quiet, well-behaved, good grades; but on the playground a scrapper, fighting with boys who resented the fact that my athletic prowess exceeded theirs and also getting into it with the school bullies. Lost a couple of teeth, broke a nose or two.

    By high school the bipolar had kicked in and much depended on my mood, so most of the time quiet and withdrawn. But when I was hypomamic, I was popular, and active--school plays, editor of school newspaper, etc. Continued into college with fall semester grades being a full grade point above spring semesters when I was often manic. Finally dropped out after 3 years. Returned to school in my 30s and did relatively well, though going to school full time, working full time and pregnant with my first child. Graduated with honors. Didn't hit my stride until law school, which I did without medication (unless you count self-medicating with booze as "meds") Read: I went through law school drunk and crazy but still managed to graduate in the top ten of my class of 300.
    It's a blessing...and a curse.

    I couldn't say, I'm horrible at making patterns on purpose

    Well I guess I'm the weird one. Not an outcast since I hung out with the mid-popular kids' table and had at least 5 friends over every weekend for Dungeons and Dragons and video games (Halo and Super Smash Brothers. I dominated in the latter )

    I kind of float through my classes. I like the days where I didn't really have to -do- anything and could pace around with my thoughts.

    I also befriended the weirdos/outcasts to some extent and am somehow popular with the 7th/8th graders (Our school has two parts, the 7th/8th graders in one group and the Highschoolers in the other. The latter generally did not like the former at all since they were annoying)

    I could never associate with the popular people and never really worked on the dating scene since there isnt much to choose from in this school and I dont have transport/funds ( "Moooom, can you take me and my GF to the movies?" )

    (Not to mention being unable to 'move forward' with a weird sense of 'who/what the heck am I?' pervading 90% of my thoughts )

    I was serious, and quiet and a good student in elementary and middle school. I started to kind of slack off in high school. I was quiet a lot of the time but became a class clown and made jokes. I would annoy my teachers by saying something potentially "meaningful and deep" and then the next moment say something completely moronic that would make the discussion go downhill from there.

    I was serious, extremely quiet, didn´t cause any problems, and got straight A´s. I was also very much into music - oboe and piano.

    I was a total misfit socially. I had virtually no confidence, and was teased. I didn´t feel I fit into any of the social groups, so my ´role´was simply observer. Silent watcher. Always on the outside. I was sweet, however, when people did notice me or say hi to me....just way too fragile and sensitive, and didn´t have social skills/confidence so couldn´t figure out how to relate to my peers and connect with people. I had a handful of ´surface´friends, but since I was so quiet and scared, I wouldn´t call them true friendships. I don´t think I allowed anyone to really get to know me (except perhaps one girl, who I´d say was my only real friend), because after a series of rejections while younger, I internalized all of it and stopped trusting people, and was scared of my peers, basically.

    Thankfully I´ve grown out of most of that by now!
