...things like the DNA side of genealogy... This is a recurring cost for you? I'm confused. I bought genealogical DNA tests for my Dad and for my mother's sister (since my mother was deceased). I could've gotten just about the same info, except Dad's mtDNA, by testing myself--but I figured this way...

I've joined several high IQ societies. On the other hand my practical intelligence, re those daily activities that most people take in their stride, is low.

Whereas some narrow abilities, such as verbal comprehension, peak quite late in life, psychomotor speed appears to peak relatively early in adulthood, and steadily declines throughout most of the adult developmental period.

Neither were in academia. Father: Short spell as army officer, then switched to Foreign office. Mother: Worked at Foreign office till she married my father. After divorce she worked as an assistant library manager. Both very intelligent, but chose not to go to university . Father- lower middle class...

Ah. There is one element that has been happening in the western world, and that is that in recent years the middle classes of society have almost dissapeared and the gap between the rich and poor has also increased massively, to the point where there are less and less rich but more and more poorer ...

[ The genetic scientist in the video confirms autism rates have definitely gone up that isn’t just better diagnosis Yeah, but unfortunately from the video alone there's no way to check her data source, we'd just be taking her word for it. And I think she said she's not exactly a genetic scientist. ...

I definitely fit in #3. Though not dxed with them, dyspraxia and dysgraphia are at least 90% probable. Not sure where those would fit.

Pre depot AP , and regular meds, I could react very strongly when afraid/stressed. I'm sure it was seen as me 'acting up'. Other reactions were flu like symptoms/derealisation . Sometimes I'd drink a lot of alcohol to crash out.
