I have pretty diverse tastes. I listen to classical while driving or whenever I feel like it at home. Otherwise I like bands like Breaking Benjamin, Skillet, Killswitch Engaged, or even harder stuff like Give Zombies The Vote. My friend showed me Nightwish awhile back, but it's not really my thing. I don't really like female voices unless they're really talented. Maybe we can be friends, though I do listen to rap sometimes.

(1/2) aswell

I've got all options open. I can go to the university after I finish this mess of a highschool.

I'm very pleased about the way you talk about it, gives me something to look forward to. I'll provide you with some more of my personal experiences too.

Well as I mentioned earlier I am 18 years old. Never had sex, been close though(this also really bothers me actually, I feel kinda inferior as male due to it. Even though I know it's but a naive/primitive feeling it does bother me). Not at all sociable, though I was in my earlier years. I was as the teachers called me 'clumsily friendly' which kinda brought painful situations upon me. Such as always being the 'second pick' for everything.

Like, he's nice, but he's not as nice as that guy right there. I had aggresion problems. Tended to hit people of their tricycles when it felt injust to me they had one and I didn't. They were toys provided on the playground by the way.

I also got bullied(when i was 6). It did not even really bother me, they called me a 'cry baby' because I tended to cry quickly in unusual situations. Usually when punished by the teacher, not by pain(pain never really bothered me, it was fear of failure that was the problem). I also tried crying alot to grab the teacher's attention that they were bullying me. But as you might know lower school teachers aren't thát clever on avarage.

I've failed my first higschool, which added latin and greek to the usual subjects. It was a school with a magnificent exam-pass-ratio(not sure how to transelate it more eloquently). At first I got absolutely stunning grades and my parents were quite satisfied, even though they expected me to get those grades anyway. For it wasn't hard to notice i was special in a way.

Very shortly after my notes dropped. Teachers usually saw me as stupid, they didn't really mind hinting me that either(which was usually subtile, so it was only for me to notice).
User avatar #104 - atomicman (01/17/2014) [-]
(2/2)

That was until I got to do an IQ test on that school. We had one national test earlier on the lower school, which didn't prove me thát clever. I had a 87/100 score there. Which in fact, was lower than the teachers and my parents expected from me by quite a bit.

Though the IQ test caused alot of confusion. For I got a score of 148. As you might know 100 is avarage in all cases. 148 suggests that you're borderline autistic intelligent. And at first the teachers wouldn't really believe it and thought I cheated somehow. I didn't get the results of this test up and until later in my life, because the school was very sure of me having cheated on the test.

Then I joined another, more casual school where my old friends were at. I managed to become super distant from them within like a month. They were talking behind my back, but I really never cared for that. I felt fairly happy alone, I could now pass school without the slightest effort.

Never had many friends. The ones that I did have are fully aware of the fact that they aren't talking to the real me. They even mentioned that I sound so stupid, while it's so damn clear I am not.

Furthermore I've got a sort of messed up attitude. I've got discipline at certain moments, I've got not a tiny spark within me on others. I do train(yes i do lift fgt, as you will) every single day. But I always wear clothes covering my rather muscular body(upper body only actually). I'm not even sure why I do that. I think I just don't want to make myself look like one of those meatballs who lack any form of intelligence.

If I once get my dreams to come true I want to change everyone's attitude. I really want to reunite people and make them think they're 'humans', and not 'germans' or 'turks'. I know it sounds naive, but I think about it every day.

So know you know more about me than 99% of the people I see every single day. But I glad I told you all this. For you sound very different from me on parts, but so samelike on others.
User avatar #107 - Deeticky (01/17/2014) [-]
2/2.

You're worried about not having lost your virginity. I get that. I didn't lose mine until i was 19. It's really not as great as you may picture, but you're right that it's nice to not have to worry about losing it anymore. Here's the thing though: It's normal to be worried about losing your virginity at your age. I would bet money that there are more virgins at your school than you think. But here's the good thing about that worry. You're displaying a normal teenage worry. You might be thinking "yeah, so?" but here's the thing. The most difficult students that I worked with at the hospital were the ones who had deep and delusional psychosis. Losing their virginity was the last thing on their mind. Their worries were all over the place. One was scared that their mother would poison them and thus avoided food, some were highly afraid that they were breathing in chemicals released by the government. The people with huge and delusional paranoia were very hard to help because you just couldn't reason with them. Strong medication was really all we could do in the short term. Those kids are probably looking at therapy for the rest of their lives. You on the other hand, have some issues, and they will take hard work to fix, but you have a lot of potential. I think if you try and address whatever your root problem is. (I really don't think it's psychosis) You'll be able to go far. If I had to recommend anything, I would just say see a few psychiatrists. See what they think you might have. I know psychiatrists and psychologists have been a lot of help to me.

You've got what it takes man. Just make a plan and do it.
User avatar #109 - atomicman (01/17/2014) [-]
It's once again great advice. I might take the psychiatrists recommendation in consideration. I always refused to do so, for I really felt like I had to fix myself. If I'm not capable of doing so I would be weak(I always wanted to be strong on every ground, but aswell keep all those strenghts to myself and only the ones deserving in my eyes).
User avatar #110 - Deeticky (01/17/2014) [-]
The fact that you've identified your own faults makes you strong. Stronger than most people who just make excuses and blame others. There's nothing wrong with accepting help. I was actually in "special ed' in highschool. I had an IEP and all that meant was that the school needed to make reasonable accommodations to help me learn the way I learned. It worked out well. I was able to get an exception that allowed me to be exempt from homework as long as I got at least a B on tests. There were others too. There's like, a million different possible accommodations. Feel free to do some research on the subject if you'd like.

Again, I can't speak for a doctor, but I can say with good certainty that you're not a psychopath. Psychopaths are very self centered and lack empathy for others. They're usually good at faking it when they have something to gain, though. You have a strong sense of loyalty, man. You want to help the world. You're obviously not a psychopath.

It is possible, however that you may have been diagnosed with an illness that involves the term "psychosis". There are a few mental illnesses that use the term psychosis, but don't make you a psychopath. And people with Asperger's can be very loyal, they're just not always good at making it obvious. It would just be something to bring up with a psychiatrist. I know i did. I ended up being diagnosed with ADHD instead, but it was an important question to ask.

You're a nice guy, and you're smart. I really appreciate that you're able to see the value of talking to a professional. Trust me, they won't be able to do much for you unless you work hard, so there's nothing shameful about seeking them out.
User avatar #111 - atomicman (01/17/2014) [-]
I guess you're very right. But then again, the asperges part. I mentioned in last message(it was right? I've written so many to you in so little time lol) I was capable of saving a friend from cutting himself letally by talking to him(it were the longest 4 hours in my life, but they were also incredibly beautiful).

I'm a very convincing person actually. It's something that doesn't really fit the rest of my charachter and sometimes confuses myself.

For the expection-part when it comes to school. My school is absolutely not willing to help me in such way. And I really dont want to turn down these guys for they've tried to help me so much. I'll probably just finish this school with borderline grades(like they're expecting from me at this point).

I do think I'll be having to talk to proffesionals indeed. Even though it'll be incredibly hard, for it's against some of my principes. And my principes saved me myself from committing suicide(I've been unhappy for a very long time) and also my friend.

For the unhappy part. My first girlfriend was kinda messed up like I was. Every boy in our class had their eyes on her. She was absolutely stunningly beautiful. Now I, as half beta/half alpha was exremely suprises when she told me she liked me.

When she went abroad for reasons still uknown to me I was broken. She really was something at least very near my soulmate. I've from then on sworn to some principes. Including not to masturbate for my entire life long(which worked, 4 years ago now) and not to be manipulated by others. Last part is for the other kids in class trying to make her fall in love with them instead of me by trying to 'prove' how inferior I am. I even beat one up really bad at one point.

*exception part I meant at the school thingy.
User avatar #106 - Deeticky (01/17/2014) [-]
(1/2) Very first thing I'd like to say: Don't lost that Idealism. Please. (You said it sounds naive, but I don't think so.)

I'm idealistic too, and sometimes people look down on me for it. But think of it this way. You and me have idealistic goals. We both want to change the world for the better. It will be hard, and we will probably fail at one point or another. Here's the thing though: If we can accomplish even a fraction of our goals, we will have done more for the world than most people ever will. Even if no one remembers our names, people will have benefited from our existence.

There's been a theme in your story. People for some reason think you're stupid even though you're obviously intelligent. It also seems like the staff at your school were not well versed in mental health. I am in no place to give you a diagnosis, but a lot of what you're telling me mirrors what I've heard from other teens who have Asperger's. It seems to me like you probably already know what that is (In short it's Autism with a very high IQ), but I'm just going to tell you why your story sounds familiar to me. My father has Asperger's. Some parts of your story sound much like his. For instance. You posses a genius level IQ and yet people think you're stupid. My father was diagnosed retarded as a toddler. He later went on to get his medical degree and has written sections of textbooks for college and medical students. His articles have been published in USA today as well. He's a mensa member, so definitely has a high IQ. And yet, he has an incredibly difficult time relating to people. He's nearly unable to connect emotionally with us and focuses extremely hard on a select few subjects that he's very passionate about (weather and running). He often embarrasses himself in public because he misses a lot of social cues, but usually is never sure what he did wrong.

Again, I'm not trying to diagnose, I just thought I would share the story and let you decide if it sounded familiar.
User avatar #108 - atomicman (01/17/2014) [-]
Well they've done some research on me. I usually disliked that for it's real purpose wasn't revealed to me(obviously they couldn't because they wouldn't want manipulated awnsers from me). I thought it had to do with me being a failure and everyone around me thinking I had to be helped, which I couldn't accept. I wanted to fix myself if neccecary.

They've never told me the real purpose of it. But they did diagnose me with a form of psychopathy(linked that to the fact that I had twice gone in an uncontrollable rage losing litteraly all my empathy for my surroundings I think) or indeed, as you say here, a form of asperges.

Though, for both there was but weak evidence. They knew I had once saved a friend from suicide aswell, for I am very loyal to those I think deserve it. Which kind of proved the asperges theory wrong(I'm speculating now).

And for the psychopathy part, same story. But also the fact that I was capable of controlling anger very well apart from those 2 times.

My current school has a very very hard time at handling me. I tend to now show up at promised appointments for I don't see what purpose it serves(including classes. I've once even proved classes don't increase my grades by the slightest). And they actually seem to understand me, but they can't change the rules just for me. For it's a generic and transparent system. Other kids would get angry and annoyed if I was granted privileges like not having to go to certain lessons.

I don't know whether I have any autistic features. People usually tend to keep my at bay, for I can look quite menacing when angry(also when dissapointed, that's excactly the same face in my case. And i'm often dissapointed). They see me as 'the guy who doesn't care'. But also the guy who is more than they just see from me(I really don't take most of them as stupid). I'm generally respected but also ignored, even though I provoce that myself.

You sound like the wise old man who lives on the top of a mountain.

You're very right at many things you said. I've never truly learned humility for I've never been beaten badly at something I really wanted to be better at than others-- that's something you made me realise and somewhat scares me.

From nature I'm not a very social person. I live by my own sort of code(which some other guy on here made me realise), which summarized would say 'Admitting to your weaknesses is the first step to greatness', but also emphasizes the fact how easily people are manipulated. Last one I'm very desperate about trying to solve and keep myself away from, but it's somehow in contradiction with the first rule.

Which is something I've always done. I always, litteraly ALWAYS try to improve on things I think I'm bad at and need fixing.

Puts me in dilemmas too. I've always gotten bad grades on school. My father told me it's because I once hit a depression which made me feel bad about school(like I created a sort of relation between depression and school). But even though I see his point I also disgust the way school(talking about highschool here, I'm 18 years old) works too. So what should I do? Use my time to get proper grades or just 'make it'-grades like I do now ?

I make it real though for myself. But I like that in some way. Only thing I'm truly afraid of is being so different will make me end up without anyone to truly love.

Thanks for the wise words man!
User avatar #94 - Deeticky (01/17/2014) [-]
Sorry for how long that took. The character limits are frustrating sometimes. My point with all of this is to tell you that life changes and gets better. It's so easy to lose hope in high school (Because it sucks so much), but things really do get better as long as you're willing to work for them. I'm sure you've heard that a lot from older people, but I guess I figured you'd be a little more inclined to believe it coming from someone who's only two years older than you and has been through some of the same struggles as you have and gets how hard it is.

Just to give you some quick background, I'm 20 years old and I'm currently studying Political science and pre-law at the University of Minnesota. I'm a freshman there. (I spent 8 months after I graduated High School recovering from a major spinal fusion surgery.) I had a kyphotic spine (curved hunchback) and the surgery straightened that for me.

I had some problems in highschool. Mainly attendance. (I almost got assigned to a truant officer) I didn't like being around many of the people there. So many of them were just so damn stupid. I swear to god a hated some of them so much. My grades ended up being decent because I chose classes that revolved around my strengths (test taking) and I did well on my ACT. That helped me get into the university.

Here's why i'm telling you this:Going to a university is SO DAMN DIFFERENT than going to high school. The average student at the university is actually smart, and they care about their education. The school also treats you like an adult. they don't sit there and cater to people who fall behind. Those people are on their own. There is so much more freedom too! There are hundreds of clubs, which makes it so easy to join something you're interested in and to try new things. I actually feel good while I'm there. I never felt that way in highschool. You can also create your own schedule at universities. I never had a class earlier than 11:00 o' clock. The extra sleep did me wonders.

I know what it's like to feel different and ostracized. Before my surgery people sometimes called me a "monster". I always thought to myself "no one could ever love a monster". I actually had my first girlfriend before my surgery though. People can surprise you sometimes. I don't know what your college options look like, but I would say do whatever you can to go to a university. From what I know, community colleges tend to be more like high school, but if you can't get into a university, they're a good way to boost your GPA until you can.

I guess you're very right. But then again, the asperges part. I mentioned in last message(it was right? I've written so many to you in so little time lol) I was capable of saving a friend from cutting himself letally by talking to him(it were the longest 4 hours in my life, but they were also incredibly beautiful).

I'm a very convincing person actually. It's something that doesn't really fit the rest of my charachter and sometimes confuses myself.

For the expection-part when it comes to school. My school is absolutely not willing to help me in such way. And I really dont want to turn down these guys for they've tried to help me so much. I'll probably just finish this school with borderline grades(like they're expecting from me at this point).

I do think I'll be having to talk to proffesionals indeed. Even though it'll be incredibly hard, for it's against some of my principes. And my principes saved me myself from committing suicide(I've been unhappy for a very long time) and also my friend.

For the unhappy part. My first girlfriend was kinda messed up like I was. Every boy in our class had their eyes on her. She was absolutely stunningly beautiful. Now I, as half beta/half alpha was exremely suprises when she told me she liked me.

When she went abroad for reasons still uknown to me I was broken. She really was something at least very near my soulmate. I've from then on sworn to some principes. Including not to masturbate for my entire life long(which worked, 4 years ago now) and not to be manipulated by others. Last part is for the other kids in class trying to make her fall in love with them instead of me by trying to 'prove' how inferior I am. I even beat one up really bad at one point.

(1/2) Very first thing I'd like to say: Don't lost that Idealism. Please. (You said it sounds naive, but I don't think so.)

I'm idealistic too, and sometimes people look down on me for it. But think of it this way. You and me have idealistic goals. We both want to change the world for the better. It will be hard, and we will probably fail at one point or another. Here's the thing though: If we can accomplish even a fraction of our goals, we will have done more for the world than most people ever will. Even if no one remembers our names, people will have benefited from our existence.

There's been a theme in your story. People for some reason think you're stupid even though you're obviously intelligent. It also seems like the staff at your school were not well versed in mental health. I am in no place to give you a diagnosis, but a lot of what you're telling me mirrors what I've heard from other teens who have Asperger's. It seems to me like you probably already know what that is (In short it's Autism with a very high IQ), but I'm just going to tell you why your story sounds familiar to me. My father has Asperger's. Some parts of your story sound much like his. For instance. You posses a genius level IQ and yet people think you're stupid. My father was diagnosed retarded as a toddler. He later went on to get his medical degree and has written sections of textbooks for college and medical students. His articles have been published in USA today as well. He's a mensa member, so definitely has a high IQ. And yet, he has an incredibly difficult time relating to people. He's nearly unable to connect emotionally with us and focuses extremely hard on a select few subjects that he's very passionate about (weather and running). He often embarrasses himself in public because he misses a lot of social cues, but usually is never sure what he did wrong.

Again, I'm not trying to diagnose, I just thought I would share the story and let you decide if it sounded familiar.
User avatar #108 - atomicman (01/17/2014) [-]
Well they've done some research on me. I usually disliked that for it's real purpose wasn't revealed to me(obviously they couldn't because they wouldn't want manipulated awnsers from me). I thought it had to do with me being a failure and everyone around me thinking I had to be helped, which I couldn't accept. I wanted to fix myself if neccecary.

They've never told me the real purpose of it. But they did diagnose me with a form of psychopathy(linked that to the fact that I had twice gone in an uncontrollable rage losing litteraly all my empathy for my surroundings I think) or indeed, as you say here, a form of asperges.

Though, for both there was but weak evidence. They knew I had once saved a friend from suicide aswell, for I am very loyal to those I think deserve it. Which kind of proved the asperges theory wrong(I'm speculating now).

And for the psychopathy part, same story. But also the fact that I was capable of controlling anger very well apart from those 2 times.

My current school has a very very hard time at handling me. I tend to now show up at promised appointments for I don't see what purpose it serves(including classes. I've once even proved classes don't increase my grades by the slightest). And they actually seem to understand me, but they can't change the rules just for me. For it's a generic and transparent system. Other kids would get angry and annoyed if I was granted privileges like not having to go to certain lessons.

I don't know whether I have any autistic features. People usually tend to keep my at bay, for I can look quite menacing when angry(also when dissapointed, that's excactly the same face in my case. And i'm often dissapointed). They see me as 'the guy who doesn't care'. But also the guy who is more than they just see from me(I really don't take most of them as stupid). I'm generally respected but also ignored, even though I provoce that myself.

Haha, I don't know about wise old man, but during highschool (after I had worked on my own mental issues) I volunteered working with other teens who had mental issues, ranging from depression to anxiety disorders to defiance disorders, you name it. I learned a lot working there. I saw a lot of successes, and a lot of failures.

I'm not a medical professional, but the fact that you want someone to love, rather than someone to "use", says to me that you're not a full blown psychopath. The fact that you have a code to live by actually puts you ahead of most other teens. A lot of people your age tend to just make rash decisions in the moment and it has led to a lot of problems for them. Having a code allows young people like us to not have to worry as much about making rash decisions, since our codes tend to prepare us to make the right choice. Choosing to always strive to improve yourself is one of the best codes you can possibly have. Once you feel confident in that, perhaps you could focus on improving not just your life, but the lives of others too. I know that many studies have shown that helping other people and seeing the results pay off is the most often successful road to happiness.

Ok friend, I'm going to be honest with you. I'm both surprised and not surprised that your grades have been less than exemplary. The reason I say this is because you seem intelligent, so you should be getting good grades, right? But I've actually seen a lot of brilliant students fail classes. Reasons for this tend to range from depression, to anxiety, to insomnia, or even just frustration at the way public high school tends to focus more on the idiots than on the intelligent students.

I'm running out of characters here, so i'm going to continue this in another reply.

Thanks for the reply man.

I'm not a very 'nice' guy though, not saying this because I desperately want to look though- I even have a form of psychopathy.

If I get into conversations with people I don't like I usually start feeling frustrated and might even ignore them during the chat. Pretty much sums up why I can't just join any sport club. I once joined a boxing team, which I was fairly talented at, but I got suspended and highly recommended to stop after I broke one of my opponents nose(just to give you an idea of how bad it is lol).

Finding girls with samelike interests is very hard for me aswell. Hell even talking to other people is hard for me. I'm pretty much the definition of a loner.

Nevethless I'm glad with the reply. Just happy to have someone to talk to for a bit :>
User avatar #78 - Deeticky (01/17/2014) [-]
Not a problem.

You're very articulate. You seem to be aware of your own problems too. Keep working on them, I guess. I know it's not easy. I used to have anger problems. I started doing martial arts and was suddenly surrounded by people who could wreck me even though I was bigger and stronger than them. I even got beat by a girl once. It taught me humility, and after years of training I very rarely feel angry anymore. It's increased my quality of life by quite a bit.

Anyway, it looks to me like you don't want to be a loner. You've just ended up that way. That's why i think you can do well. True loners hate people and don't want to be around anyone. Mental illness is very difficult to turn around, but the first step is having the will. It looks to me like you've got that. Just ask yourself what you want next, and make a plan to make it happen. Things don't usually get better super fast, but by making a bunch of incremental gains over a few years time can really result in some great changes.

I guess my point is that you seem to be frustrated with how "stuck" you are, but you're obviously intelligent, and it pains me to see someone so intelligent not realize their potential.

If I'm wrong with some of the assumptions I made, I'm sorry. I just know that I was in a very similar situation before.

You sound like the wise old man who lives on the top of a mountain.

You're very right at many things you said. I've never truly learned humility for I've never been beaten badly at something I really wanted to be better at than others-- that's something you made me realise and somewhat scares me.

From nature I'm not a very social person. I live by my own sort of code(which some other guy on here made me realise), which summarized would say 'Admitting to your weaknesses is the first step to greatness', but also emphasizes the fact how easily people are manipulated. Last one I'm very desperate about trying to solve and keep myself away from, but it's somehow in contradiction with the first rule.

Which is something I've always done. I always, litteraly ALWAYS try to improve on things I think I'm bad at and need fixing.

Puts me in dilemmas too. I've always gotten bad grades on school. My father told me it's because I once hit a depression which made me feel bad about school(like I created a sort of relation between depression and school). But even though I see his point I also disgust the way school(talking about highschool here, I'm 18 years old) works too. So what should I do? Use my time to get proper grades or just 'make it'-grades like I do now ?

I make it real though for myself. But I like that in some way. Only thing I'm truly afraid of is being so different will make me end up without anyone to truly love.

Thanks for the wise words man!
User avatar #94 - Deeticky (01/17/2014) [-]
Sorry for how long that took. The character limits are frustrating sometimes. My point with all of this is to tell you that life changes and gets better. It's so easy to lose hope in high school (Because it sucks so much), but things really do get better as long as you're willing to work for them. I'm sure you've heard that a lot from older people, but I guess I figured you'd be a little more inclined to believe it coming from someone who's only two years older than you and has been through some of the same struggles as you have and gets how hard it is.

Just to give you some quick background, I'm 20 years old and I'm currently studying Political science and pre-law at the University of Minnesota. I'm a freshman there. (I spent 8 months after I graduated High School recovering from a major spinal fusion surgery.) I had a kyphotic spine (curved hunchback) and the surgery straightened that for me.

I had some problems in highschool. Mainly attendance. (I almost got assigned to a truant officer) I didn't like being around many of the people there. So many of them were just so damn stupid. I swear to god a hated some of them so much. My grades ended up being decent because I chose classes that revolved around my strengths (test taking) and I did well on my ACT. That helped me get into the university.

Here's why i'm telling you this:Going to a university is SO DAMN DIFFERENT than going to high school. The average student at the university is actually smart, and they care about their education. The school also treats you like an adult. they don't sit there and cater to people who fall behind. Those people are on their own. There is so much more freedom too! There are hundreds of clubs, which makes it so easy to join something you're interested in and to try new things. I actually feel good while I'm there. I never felt that way in highschool. You can also create your own schedule at universities. I never had a class earlier than 11:00 o' clock. The extra sleep did me wonders.

I know what it's like to feel different and ostracized. Before my surgery people sometimes called me a "monster". I always thought to myself "no one could ever love a monster". I actually had my first girlfriend before my surgery though. People can surprise you sometimes. I don't know what your college options look like, but I would say do whatever you can to go to a university. From what I know, community colleges tend to be more like high school, but if you can't get into a university, they're a good way to boost your GPA until you can.
User avatar #101 - atomicman (01/17/2014) [-]
(1/2) aswell

I've got all options open. I can go to the university after I finish this mess of a highschool.

I'm very pleased about the way you talk about it, gives me something to look forward to. I'll provide you with some more of my personal experiences too.

Well as I mentioned earlier I am 18 years old. Never had sex, been close though(this also really bothers me actually, I feel kinda inferior as male due to it. Even though I know it's but a naive/primitive feeling it does bother me). Not at all sociable, though I was in my earlier years. I was as the teachers called me 'clumsily friendly' which kinda brought painful situations upon me. Such as always being the 'second pick' for everything.

Like, he's nice, but he's not as nice as that guy right there. I had aggresion problems. Tended to hit people of their tricycles when it felt injust to me they had one and I didn't. They were toys provided on the playground by the way.

I also got bullied(when i was 6). It did not even really bother me, they called me a 'cry baby' because I tended to cry quickly in unusual situations. Usually when punished by the teacher, not by pain(pain never really bothered me, it was fear of failure that was the problem). I also tried crying alot to grab the teacher's attention that they were bullying me. But as you might know lower school teachers aren't thát clever on avarage.

I've failed my first higschool, which added latin and greek to the usual subjects. It was a school with a magnificent exam-pass-ratio(not sure how to transelate it more eloquently). At first I got absolutely stunning grades and my parents were quite satisfied, even though they expected me to get those grades anyway. For it wasn't hard to notice i was special in a way.

Very shortly after my notes dropped. Teachers usually saw me as stupid, they didn't really mind hinting me that either(which was usually subtile, so it was only for me to notice).
User avatar #104 - atomicman (01/17/2014) [-]
(2/2)

That was until I got to do an IQ test on that school. We had one national test earlier on the lower school, which didn't prove me thát clever. I had a 87/100 score there. Which in fact, was lower than the teachers and my parents expected from me by quite a bit.

Though the IQ test caused alot of confusion. For I got a score of 148. As you might know 100 is avarage in all cases. 148 suggests that you're borderline autistic intelligent. And at first the teachers wouldn't really believe it and thought I cheated somehow. I didn't get the results of this test up and until later in my life, because the school was very sure of me having cheated on the test.

Then I joined another, more casual school where my old friends were at. I managed to become super distant from them within like a month. They were talking behind my back, but I really never cared for that. I felt fairly happy alone, I could now pass school without the slightest effort.

Never had many friends. The ones that I did have are fully aware of the fact that they aren't talking to the real me. They even mentioned that I sound so stupid, while it's so damn clear I am not.

Furthermore I've got a sort of messed up attitude. I've got discipline at certain moments, I've got not a tiny spark within me on others. I do train(yes i do lift fgt, as you will) every single day. But I always wear clothes covering my rather muscular body(upper body only actually). I'm not even sure why I do that. I think I just don't want to make myself look like one of those meatballs who lack any form of intelligence.

If I once get my dreams to come true I want to change everyone's attitude. I really want to reunite people and make them think they're 'humans', and not 'germans' or 'turks'. I know it sounds naive, but I think about it every day.

So know you know more about me than 99% of the people I see every single day. But I glad I told you all this. For you sound very different from me on parts, but so samelike on others.
User avatar #107 - Deeticky (01/17/2014) [-]
2/2.

You're worried about not having lost your virginity. I get that. I didn't lose mine until i was 19. It's really not as great as you may picture, but you're right that it's nice to not have to worry about losing it anymore. Here's the thing though: It's normal to be worried about losing your virginity at your age. I would bet money that there are more virgins at your school than you think. But here's the good thing about that worry. You're displaying a normal teenage worry. You might be thinking "yeah, so?" but here's the thing. The most difficult students that I worked with at the hospital were the ones who had deep and delusional psychosis. Losing their virginity was the last thing on their mind. Their worries were all over the place. One was scared that their mother would poison them and thus avoided food, some were highly afraid that they were breathing in chemicals released by the government. The people with huge and delusional paranoia were very hard to help because you just couldn't reason with them. Strong medication was really all we could do in the short term. Those kids are probably looking at therapy for the rest of their lives. You on the other hand, have some issues, and they will take hard work to fix, but you have a lot of potential. I think if you try and address whatever your root problem is. (I really don't think it's psychosis) You'll be able to go far. If I had to recommend anything, I would just say see a few psychiatrists. See what they think you might have. I know psychiatrists and psychologists have been a lot of help to me.

You've got what it takes man. Just make a plan and do it.
User avatar #109 - atomicman (01/17/2014) [-]
It's once again great advice. I might take the psychiatrists recommendation in consideration. I always refused to do so, for I really felt like I had to fix myself. If I'm not capable of doing so I would be weak(I always wanted to be strong on every ground, but aswell keep all those strenghts to myself and only the ones deserving in my eyes).
User avatar #110 - Deeticky (01/17/2014) [-]
The fact that you've identified your own faults makes you strong. Stronger than most people who just make excuses and blame others. There's nothing wrong with accepting help. I was actually in "special ed' in highschool. I had an IEP and all that meant was that the school needed to make reasonable accommodations to help me learn the way I learned. It worked out well. I was able to get an exception that allowed me to be exempt from homework as long as I got at least a B on tests. There were others too. There's like, a million different possible accommodations. Feel free to do some research on the subject if you'd like.

Again, I can't speak for a doctor, but I can say with good certainty that you're not a psychopath. Psychopaths are very self centered and lack empathy for others. They're usually good at faking it when they have something to gain, though. You have a strong sense of loyalty, man. You want to help the world. You're obviously not a psychopath.

It is possible, however that you may have been diagnosed with an illness that involves the term "psychosis". There are a few mental illnesses that use the term psychosis, but don't make you a psychopath. And people with Asperger's can be very loyal, they're just not always good at making it obvious. It would just be something to bring up with a psychiatrist. I know i did. I ended up being diagnosed with ADHD instead, but it was an important question to ask.

You're a nice guy, and you're smart. I really appreciate that you're able to see the value of talking to a professional. Trust me, they won't be able to do much for you unless you work hard, so there's nothing shameful about seeking them out.

And i'm often dissapointed). They see me as 'the guy who doesn't care'. But also the guy who is more than they just see from me(I really don't take most of them as stupid). I'm generally respected but also ignored, even though I provoce that myself.

(1/2)

Haha, I don't know about wise old man, but during highschool (after I had worked on my own mental issues) I volunteered working with other teens who had mental issues, ranging from depression to anxiety disorders to defiance disorders, you name it. I learned a lot working there. I saw a lot of successes, and a lot of failures.

I'm not a medical professional, but the fact that you want someone to love, rather than someone to "use", says to me that you're not a full blown psychopath. The fact that you have a code to live by actually puts you ahead of most other teens. A lot of people your age tend to just make rash decisions in the moment and it has led to a lot of problems for them. Having a code allows young people like us to not have to worry as much about making rash decisions, since our codes tend to prepare us to make the right choice. Choosing to always strive to improve yourself is one of the best codes you can possibly have. Once you feel confident in that, perhaps you could focus on improving not just your life, but the lives of others too. I know that many studies have shown that helping other people and seeing the results pay off is the most often successful road to happiness.

Ok friend, I'm going to be honest with you. I'm both surprised and not surprised that your grades have been less than exemplary. The reason I say this is because you seem intelligent, so you should be getting good grades, right? But I've actually seen a lot of brilliant students fail classes. Reasons for this tend to range from depression, to anxiety, to insomnia, or even just frustration at the way public high school tends to focus more on the idiots than on the intelligent students.

I'm running out of characters here, so i'm going to continue this in another reply.

That's why I need theory before I can practice.
User avatar #145 - agrofenlas (01/17/2014) [-]
Theory: smug smile, pretend to look at something distant, turn back, say something relevant but semi obscure to the conversation.

Coffee shops, buses, museums, colleges are the best...

Sounds to me like you need to flirt more so she knows what you want honestly.

Trade secret: Take small steps, compliment -> tip -> Flirt, make your move, disregard their first advance, move in for the kill. Thats worked for me so far, I've got a date today because of it.
User avatar #135 - Deeticky (01/17/2014) [-]
Can't tell if you knew I was being sarcastic with my fedora neckbeard stuff or not. Congrats on your date today though.

I tend to use a similar strategy, but I don't do the "disregard advances" part.

People tell me I'd have more success with women if I played a little harder to get.

Can't seem to do that though. Just feels way too dishonest. I don't act desperate or anything, but I am really just unable to play hard to get without convincing the girl that I'm not interested at all, it seems.

I also don't try for as many girls as I used to. I dated a bipolar/crazy girl for a year. That was a nightmare.

Sorry for the life story.

Ince a week I go out on jogs for close to 12 miles there, to places like tea houses, downtown, some of my favorite waterfront spots.

Ok. That decision is yours to make. I'm still confused as to what you were asking me to source, though. ("void for all religious identification origins")

I can tell you that people are more likely than not to take their parents' religion. That's what the sources I cited said as well. And if you think about it, religious parents tend to take their children to Church/Mosque/Synagogue, so it would definitely look like more than just simple correlation.

I guess they chose a good candidate then. Are they going to be using you to try and test methods to prevent muscle degradation, bed sores, or...?
