One thing I don't get is how people, be they of very low,average, or very high intelligence, can be cognitively consistent. I've never been like that from as far back as I can remember. What is 'cognitively consistent'? There's very little,if any, fluctuation in their ability to think . I have days...

To use a football analogy: I'm like the person who could've had a good career as a premier league footballer if he hadn't been viciously fouled during a youth game. With the injury then being inadequately treated. That person can talk a good game but can't display it on the pitch.That's me and my mi...

I was probably the most disliked boy ever at my then 506-511 year old public school. I was very shy and introverted, physically and socially awkward, crap at sports etc. I.e very different from the standard brash and supremely self confident public school boy. I've never been able to get over the ef...

I don't get why people expect everyone else to have perfect coordination and do everything at lightning speed the moment they become an adult. It's like adults with motor skill delays don't exist. :?
