    Family told me that when I was a child I didn't speak for quite a long time so they thought I was a mute. I would just nod or stare blankly when spoken to and would not cry when I was feeling ill. So they would take me to the doctor but they would always say there was nothing wrong with me. Then I just spoke one day. Turns out I just didn't want to speak but that time I had to because I was asking for something. I'd say I have always been a silent person ever since.

    I also did the same thing when it comes to walking. They said they didn't teach me how to walk, I just jumped from my crib and started teaching myself how to walk. I would always just observe people around me and keep to myself.

    Sounds like ILI.
    One psychologist told that I started off as pretty weird. My questions were filled with abstract concepts and I did not explore world around me using senses.

    Hi Fay, I know this is old but I started looking at this thread where i left off pages back. I was going to ask just where, when you first mentioned it was "near NY", but here you tell us Tarrytown [that is the spelling]. My husband grew up quite near there, and his best friend from childhood is a lawyer there now. When they were school age they both had working parents, but in those days kids could run free after school while their parents were at work; it was safe. And I take the bridge over the Hudson in Tarrytown often when traveling; I take it to avoid my GPS's directive to take me into New York City and over the terribly congested George Washington Bridge, instead. Anyway, it's a very beautiful area and it would have been quite a beautiful bucolic country town, nicely situated 25 miles from Manhattan, when your great-great-great-grandparents were there [I am calculating that is the right amount of greats to add to your grandparents if they arrived there in 1900]. It is an area made particularly famous by Washington Irving. My husband lived just off Sleepy Hollow Rd. Its still beautiful there. I wonder if you have old correspondence with a Tarrytown address? Because if so it would be interesting for you to Google and see it. I have addresses from my parents' old correspondence, and it has been interesting to see where they lived, by googling the addresses.

    Your great-great-great-grandparents probably arrived in Tarrytown just about the very time my great-great-great-grandfather and his family emigrated to Toronto from London! His brother was a well known artist/sculptor. I have two beautiful drawings of his (he was not an artist by profession, but they are beautiful). This is his artist brother:

    I lived in a foreign country as a teen, my mothers country. It's a shithole, hated it and will never return.

    I'm entirely self taught in all subjects that I know as I had to drop out of elementary school due to rough childhood and my parents didn't help me with learning at all. I initially started my self learning by devouring a 1997 Oxford Encyclopedia religiously, as it was my only entertainment. Got high school equivalency as an adult and my knowledge of all subjects minus math surpass most people I meet, including college grads. My math is raw ass however and I forget how to do it often which requires me to brush up on it very frequently to retain it.

    I met Ryan Reynolds when I worked at Starbucks a long time ago. He ordered a black coffee, give a tip, and left.

    I was a hair away from becoming an LDS missionary, in the middle of the process and everything, but bailed last second to move across the country to work for Scientology instead as at that point my faith was nonexistent and was only still LDS due to wanting to maintain my friendships. I strongly miss the social life of the LDS church, nothing compares.

The sooner you set yourself to your spiritual program, the happier you will be. The longer you wait, the more you’ll be vulnerable to mediocrity and feel filled with shame and regret, because you know you are capable of better. From this instant on, vow to stop disappointing yourself. Separate yourself from the mob. Decide to be extraordinary and do what you need to do – now." - Epictetus

    when i was a small child i would collect worms in the backyard after every rain, but my dad forbid me from doing it after he saw that i kept them as pets and kissed them.

    i had a speech impediment that caused me to drop the first letter from every word, ie. "mouse" would be "ouse" and for that reason i went to special ed learning as a toddler where i was prompted to look at words and pictures and pronounce them. and in that way i learned to read when i was 3. in a kind of hardcore way because the doctor walked in to see a 3 year old reading something he had laying out about medicine he referred my parents to an iq test. it makes me wonder about hyperlexia after hearing that another indicator is weirdly early memories and i always KNEW that my memory of being 6 months old in my mother's arms was real.

    less flattering neuro quirks i possess are maladaptive daydreaming (just a tiny bit now. but like talking to myself in public when i was a teenager)
    and wolfbiting/finger skin gnawing (i stopped after i was in coma. started up again on purpose because i was yearning so badly to be my 'old self' again hehe. it's a much milder habit now, though.)

    i've only seen the gulf of mexico and no other portion of the ocean. i swam in it and my primary takeaway was the ridiculousness of swimming in water so salty.

    i keep editing this post and i realized i'm not enjoying myself anymore but i'd like to say more, so maybe i'll make another one.

I'll be an executive in Europe next year, after I finish 6 or so months of hardcore daily training in Clearwater first, which will be a scary experience but one I look forward to. I'll be a director overseeing all matters regarding ethics, statistics, rudiments, and most of all inspections for the entire country.

    All I can say is if you want a significantly higher degree of responsibility than you'd realistically find in any job in the real world, wog world as we say, you'd love working here. If you hate ever increasing responsibilities and just wanna keep your head down, not the job for you.

    Yeah I've found the LDS to be the opposite of the Catholic church where the theology is bad but the community is amazing whereas my experience in Catholicism is worst community of all churches (except Eastern Orthodox, way too ethnically insulated) but best theology, really love how philosophical and scholarly it all is.

    I could kill a man with my masculine and pronounced forehead and cheekbones.

    I was at the beach at Sand Key Park's beach a week ago. I do shopping in the area, occasionally. I just know Clearwater is packed more than usual because of Spring Break.

    Yeah, I've lived in the area most of my life and have been all over Pinellas. I don't go out as much because of COVID. I used to go to the kava bars in the area, but again, because of COVID, I'd rather stay home until things get better with the pandemic.

    Another fact about me I guess - I don't have an opinion about the posts above but they reminded me of a cultish group I shortly joined when I was still 17-18. They offered good food so I figured I'd say yes to the invites even though I couldn't care less (they're quite persistent though). I was living away from home at that time and it's kind of boring to just go back after class (which would end at around 5:30/6:00 pm anyway so it would be time for early dinner). It was just shallow bible study where afterwards they ask you what you are thankful for. It was kind of scary knowing these people after some time because you realize a lot of them have really troubled lives which made them seek the group for comfort
    E.g. got pregnant and got into abortion many times at a very young age, alcoholic, raped by family member, addicted to drugs, sometimes the combination of all, the works
    . I guess the most difficult for me was to be vocally thankful for something so I'd just say I'm thankful that I'm still alive and that I'm doing well etc, but internally it was troubling to hear them say that they are thankful because they heard God whisper to them and give them an advice about something about their life. I was raised Christian, I haven't heard a priest say that God will literally talk to you and I don't think that's realistic but to each their own I guess. But one person told me casually that God told her to quit school which made me think she's getting crazy. She became my classmate actually and sat with her sometimes. I got into a group of 4 mostly in my major subjects, then we slowly became just two sometimes because the other 2 got put off by her. At the end of that semester she acted weird at a small gathering we had with our professor and left the room. Started acting nervous and whispering something. Professor approached me and asked me if I know something about her because she's been acting really weird recently. I told him I really had no idea.

    Now if you talk to these people their eyes get glassy sometimes, like they're going to a trance. The worst time that happened was when I asked about their God itself. They're like reciting a script, it was fascinating and scary at the same time, given that at that time the girl walked me to the dorm and it was already around 9 pm that time. And the way to the dorm was really dim it felt like I was in a horror movie to be honest. She said a lot of things but the only thing I could remember due to fear was that everyone who leaves them won't be able to really leave anyway and would always come back. I can't really make this shit up.

    That really didn't stop me because scary things draw you in. After a few months they would invite you to the main event. When you ask them what that is about, they would say it's better if you experience it on your own. I joined. Lots of people there, I thought, I wonder if they even have a slightest doubt about this whole thing. But it seems like they were really happy. It was a 3-day event which always ends at around 9 pm except iirc for the last day which according to them would end indefinitely. So as expected the first two days were normal, and the third day was when the weird shit happened. You know about the Midsommar crying ladies? Something like that happened. Fucking weird when you experience that in real life. It was like a hostage situation because we were led to a smallish room where there were a lot of doors and the leaders were just hanging around (some were even outside). But then when they announced the big reveal all the leaders looked at us and started closing the door while smiling. Then they tried to make people experience 'holy spirit' by chants which make participants fall into the ground and they were shouting so it was deafening. Then the people who fell started acting like them too. If you aren't yet succumbing to the spirit they would circle on you. I was actually one of the few who were left standing, but I thought if I don't act like them they might gang up on me and I might get into trouble. So I tried being an actor and it worked. It was so nauseating actually but I just grounded myself with realistic thoughts so it didn't affect me. I don't know why the people around me started acting like them actually. So that was when I realized further that it's important to think twice and don't just follow blindly or else I'll act like an idiot.

    And then it was a grueling few hours before the whole thing stopped and they all clapped. It was over. It was actually already morning when it ended. They opened the doors and there were tables full of nice food. Everyone was welcoming and hugging us. I looked at the big statue of God at the center. Didn't look like Jesus which terrified me even more. I dined with everyone and they all have glassy eyes even the participants (Or maybe my perception was already fucked at that point because the whole thing was a big WTF moment). They would also talk about hearing God and how marvelous he was. That's the only thing they talked about actually. So anyway after that I said I would be busy with the exams so I might not be able to attend the next event. It was the event for morning group praying. Seriously I thought I've seen it all so no thanks. Not my group of people, not my type of belief either.

    I'm in two projects (bands). The way I joined the second one was funny, I saw them looking for a "crazy" vocalist and I told them to meet up, they were like "ok, we're at the bar." I went to the shithole they were at and they had me sing for them and we bonded fast. They were like "You're exactly what we were looking for. You sing real well, different styles, AND you're completely insane."

    My father has it and my mother is a carrier; paternal grandpa has it. Maternal grandma is colorblind, which means my uncle must be too. I have wondered what the world looks like to the non-colorblind.
    Have you ever tried on those colorblind glasses? (I like to watch those videos where people try them on for the first time).

    I was the only sensing type in my immediate family when I was growing up. My mom and sister are ILI. My brother is ILE. My dad is ILE.

    I was born in the same hospital as Barack Obama.

    I’m a Scorpio.

    I used to love looking at dead bodies as a child. So much that I wanted to be a mortician or forensic pathologist. Even now, I like to watch movies where people get tortured to death.

    I’ve always thoughts reds and greens are generally so dull while blue can be this rich, brilliant hue. I have no idea if that has to do with my colorblindness though lol.

    My father has it and my mother is a carrier; maternal grandpa has it. Paternal grandma is colorblind, which means my uncle must be too. I have wondered what the world looks like to the non-colorblind.
    As a non-colorblind person, I think most people would not consider red to be a particularly unexciting color. It can be dull as it approaches the color of purple, but IIRC studies have shown that seeing it helps provoke sexual thoughts -- maybe other kinds of excitement too; I'm not sure, but it . And as for green, I think even what most people would consider dark green is fairly vibrant; a "dull" green I think would be described as green diluted with brown, rather than a type of greenness itself. When I think of the word "lurid," the image that comes to mind is of a scene filtered through a harsh, surreal yellowish-green light.

    I don't think I'd like being around a dead body now (well more so if the death was violent). I've developed certain fears that I didn't have as a child.

    In archaic Russian language "red" and "beautiful" were also used as synonyms.
    "красна девица" ("red girl") - beautiful or decent girl
    "красный угол" ("red corner") - best cared and decent place in a house, where were kept religious symbols
    "Red Square" near Cremlin should be named with the meaning as beautiful or important square
    Also "багряный" is close to red or same color. "Багрянородный" ("redborn") - a term used for Eastern Roman Emperor descendants.
    Red is associated with a blood and ripe fruits, - the color of alive and healthy body, good meal, fire important for a life. Mainly positive.

    I also did the same thing when it comes to walking. They said they didn't teach me how to walk, I just jumped from my crib and started teaching myself how to walk. I would always just observe people around me and keep to myself.
    Interesting. I have a similar experience that my parents told me that they were once very anxiety that I didn't speak.

    Si edition:

    I have some difficulty swallowing, I need to drink some water with many dry foods that others seem to eat easily without any drink. I was also afraid of swallowing pills as a child, my mother had to crush even tiny ones, got courage to end this habit later but sometimes they get stuck somewhere in my throat.

    As a child I had a habit of picking between my teeth, sometimes to blood, it felt itchy in a good way and was quite addicting, I only stopped because I worried I may damage something.

    Sometimes strong stress causes interesting physical sensations, I remember that I felt like something was burning inside my head when I've done something bad in elementary school, some time ago some very important event made my hands go numb, later it repeated in some less stressing situations, like that first occurrence activated this reaction for some time.

    Since maybe 3 years I have this thing that I recall some smells out of nowhere, like a deja vu but only about smell.

    I can't stand any bitter food. Grapefruits, coffee etc., just

    Sometimes when I'm sleepy or bored I read with only one eye, the non-dominant one is just unfocused and ignored, feels like less effort than the usual way.

    My only health problems are myopia, headache around once a month, some dull pain above my ankle and pain I think in my esophagus that radiates to the back and jaw with similar frequency, also some weird pulsating under my skin in random places. It's been happening for years and doesn't get worse so rather nothing to worry about.

    Sometimes touching some parts of my body gives me some weird stingy sensation in my throat, happens rarely and randomly without reason.

    Once when I was a child I was eating dinner and I felt my elbow got unusually wet, I looked at it and saw a lot of blood, it was a bit shocking as I have no idea how it happened, I didn't feel any pain.

    My mind is very creative when I'm falling asleep, I often get some great ideas then but I want to sleep and don't feel like getting up to write them up, so much potential gets wasted

    When I'm alone and I think about something exciting I'm running and jumping a lot, it feels natural to express emotions this way.

    When I have to wake up early I always skip breakfast, I just don't feel hungry in the morning, sometimes even nauseous if I slept too short. It doesn't affect my performance in any way, in fact I usually feel more hungry and tired later in the day if I ate breakfast, maybe I'm genetically made for fasting or something.

    Same!! I think it's just some muscles twitching, it's called fasciculation.
    I rarely feel alone. I rarely talk to anyone, yet in my head i have the most amazing, the most fantastic discussions with the people in my life. In real life, what most people talk about is several orders of magnitude lesser than their inner experiences. Most people never reveal the singularity of their subjective experience.
    Maybe I should learn to explore other people's consciousness. Maybe I should aim for a real space between me and others. Instead of cultivating monologues and fantasies. It's hard, but the alternative to this seems to be madness. ~ lkdhf qkb

    I used to get migraines only a couple times a year, but each time I got one I would throw up (/often dry heave) multiple times because it was so painful. They happen a bit less often now due to anti-migraine medication, and I can sometimes force myself not to throw up, but the experience is terrible either way.

    I chose My Youtube username as RaptorWizard (later adding the Ultimate Aeon of Will as a 2nd at the same time name) in 2011 8 years before the Raptors won the NBA title, but 6 years after the 81 point Kobe Raptors game in 2006.

    So I'm kind of, half authentic in the destiny credential, but hey, nobody else after those things used RaptorWizard, so I am the prodigy!!*

    One of reasons I was without a pair since 22 to 29 yo age is my vow to have no other woman until 30 years.
    I tried to explain my emotional state to the one I had feelings to.
    As I've not seen serious interest to me, which thought should be obligate to appear soon when your "real love" pair is met, I stoped communications with her. Despite I had significant feeling for next several years.
    It took 17 years from the moment I've got significant feeling to one woman to the time when I got significant feeling to other woman.

    My Ni views the world as like kind of a puzzle, sometimes a maze and even could be an infuriating one. It doesn't help that I literally have to learn social skills by myself rather than like... naturally imitate them from adults growing up. So yeah. As for my ennea 1 side I kind of discriminate evil and even the striving for power too, but I know for a fact that I'm not perfect myself, that I have a lot of selfish impulses and even weaknesses, that its impossible for me to be perfect because I'm human. Humanity can be transcended only through acceptance... discrimination, God knows how many awful things came from that throughout history.
