the genius of me

April 19, 2016 6:08am CST
I am a self-confessed introvert. Other things that characterise me? Well, let's see. I like to stay up late, although I can't as I have to get up at silly o'clock for work {1}; I'm very sarcastic. Amazingly sarcastic, even though I find it difficult to recognise it when I hear it from other folk {2}; I overthink anything and everything, and other stuff which some people would never think of. And then more stuff. This leads to worries. An awful lot of worries {3}; I get anxious in social situations, even when I know the people I'm with {4}; I have a tendency to occasionally talk to myself, especially when I'm frustrated {5}; I LOVE cats! {6}; I'm stupidly scatterbrained, with everything going in and staying there, mulling around, being added to, resulting in a lack of focus {7}. Apparently these seven aspects of Me make me a genius. I know it must be true because I read it on the Internet. It's no surprise really, but some of you may be shocked to discover that you are a genius too.

I'm definitely with you on 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6. In the software development community I'm regarded as an extrovert. That's because I stare at someone else's shoes when I'm talking!!!

You come across online as an extrovert. Although, I probably come across as quite different online. I like to think that the real me is my online persona; more confident, more willing to speak up, more able to talk about my emotions and whatnot. All the stuff I want to be in the physical form, but can't. :)

@Poppylicious I'm probably a lot more considered with my views when I'm online. I think a little more about what I'm going to say. I tend to shoot from the hip more in person. That's probably the only difference.

I am an introvert too and often get shy in social situations. I open up when I get to know people I am with more, but still don't fully open up. I hope that makes me genius too :D

Yeah, about #1; I watched Penn-&-Teller's SHOWTIME-program about 'sleep' (insomnia, mattress quality, etc.), and they found out that 8-hours-a-night might actually be bad for you---people who sleep 5-or-6 hours a night actually live longer!
