    Default Leaky Sensory Filters!

    This is seriously my problem. Dh has gotten used to it! I keep ear plugs on each floor, so I know I can protect my peace when the need arises. And I HATE fluorescent lights. Hate them.

    Now I have a wonderful excuse. I could be a genius!

    I am a creative thinker, no doubt, and this goes with that, anyway.

    Who else has this issue?

    I have photosensitive epilepsy, so light has always been a problem with me. Even though I supposedly have PSE, unwelcome sounds, temperature, ...pressure etc. seems to have an effect also (my doctor didn't seem to consider this important when I pointed it out to him): it's bad because I've had other condition/s for most of life that I had assumed were to do with the epilepsy, but later turned out not to be.

    Unwelcome sounds from distant motorways & main roads, and from computers, and from neighbours and/or lager louts is certainly an issue to me. By it's nature, it's generally constant background noise, and makes my inner state feel cheapened and polluted. So yes, not nice.

    Flourescent lights don't bother me but certain random sounds can drive me off the wall. People coughing, sniffling, clearing their throat, even tapping their pencil. With certain bodily things like coughing, I know they can't help it, it's an involuntary body reaction but I still find it distracting and breaking my concentration. I wear earplugs every night when I go to bed. I'm not married but if I was, my husband and I would probably need to sleep in separate rooms because if someone else is snoring, I can't sleep.

    This thread reminds me of the HSP thread.

    I have always been a night person. I won't comment on the rest.

    Correlation does not imply causation. This does not mean that staying up late, doing drugs, and experimenting with sex toys makes you more intelligent. But it seems to be the case that people who naturally have a higher degree of intelligence partake in these activities naturally because they are drawn to them. Maybe it is because of their openmindedness, their desire to expand their mind and their experience, or a biological urge to experiment with something novel.

    Chances are, a lot of people reading this tend to stay up late and indulge in life’s pleasures. This is not necessarily a bad thing, and it may even be a natural consequence of having an above average IQ. These three studies completely shatter everything we would expect to be true about people of high intelligence. It seems to be the intellectuals that are having the most fun. I think it’s time we let go of old stereotypes

    i definitely relate to this. noise and interruptions are the bane of my existence. i don't know if fluorescent lights bother me... it can get annoying when they strobe. what's more annoying though is ten people in a row commenting on the blinking light. it's like fuck i know i'm sitting right here, please just go away.

    i'm thinking of work for most of this. but the persistent noisy thing that can happen when i'm alone at home without all the interruptions is the leaf blower. gradually i'll become aware that it's hard to think, which i usually just respond to by intensifying my thinking/focus. but then i start becoming aware of how not only is there some sort of outside interference but i'm feeling increasingly irritated. that's usually when i register that a) there's an awful noise and b) it's once again a fucking leaf blower (or other annoying landscaping machinery - i call them all leaf blowers), at which point i may yell "ugh, do you fucking mind?!" in the general direction of the window to vent some of my annoyance. head phones solve it after that.

    there are a lot of traffic noises outside and when I first moved in it was like a roaring ocean sometimes, but i don't really notice it much anymore. i just have this feeling instead that this place has "bad energy" as there's just this mentally muddled feel in the very back of my mind when i'm here. or it feels somehow like something is muddled. it doesn't facilitate clarity.

    i don't think the traffic noise is the sole contributor to the "bad energy" vibe. there really is just something wrong with this place. i don't feel like it's impacting me directly though?

    I used to take silent retreats at an Trappist Abbey. You would like it. You might want to try one some time.

    These are some:
    http://www.caldey-island.co.uk/
    http://www.mountsaintbernard.org/9.html
    www.nunraw.org.uk/

    (The other name is Cistercian). Its very peaceful, and you don't have to be Catholic, or even Christian. No one will try to convert you. Because sometimes, you just need peace, and these re wonderful places for peaceful retreats.

    I have not heard of the term photosensitive epilepsy, however, I met a Mom who told me her son's epilepsy was brought on by her turning on the light in his room while he was sleeping. She felt very bad about that, and seemed a little traumatized just telling me. I had never heard of such a happening.

    That looks like a good idea for the future. It would at the very least get me out into the country, and possibly at some building of historical interest.

    PSE is probably what most people imagine epilepsy being like (being caused by flashing lights): I certainly don't think I realised when I was diagnosed that it makes up a minority of epilepsy cases. it typically seems to be attributed to historical religious figures, e.g. Paul, Muhammad, Joan of Arc (basically anyone who had 'visions', and often in conjunction with diagnoses of some mental illness or other).

    Perhaps...such appropriations are highly contentious, and I'd rather choose to be in a group of interesting people rather than be associated by some form of deficiency

    I wonder if the software (which is free!) mentioned in this article would be of use/interest to you (in regards the OP)?: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-34744859
