Yes, thank you. This is one I haven't seen. It's irritating and frustrating when I can't find anything new.

And I wish more professionals would be aware of these things. Especially the whole empathy and self-insight and imagination stuff.

THANK you for posting these links -- I'm even thinking these might be the perfect thing to show someone I know whom I'm trying to break it to them about myself. Dr Gould explains things perfectly and could be describing me, and this could be helpful to say to this friend of mine exactly the things I can't seem to find a way to say.

On the other hand, friends will never need an explanation, and enemies bent on disliking me will never accept one.
