With your eye for beauty, and your ability to capture, replicate and express it, I believe you could have a personality trait called “Low latency inhabition” Has anyone suggested this to you before? And if you did have said trait, would you care? As to sa

No one’s ever suggested it in what I perceive as a non-derogatory way to me before haha. In all honesty, particularly after looking it up in detail, I know it may be considered a vice by some but it’s a quality that fascinates me when I’m confronted with it in others, and I think it’s important to have this ‘vice’ somewhere in the world, or nothing new, innovative or uselessly beautiful would ever be created. We’d have no abstract art, or extended metaphors; I also think it allows for a more acute level of emotional intelligence and intuition. The world would be a very narrow horizon without the myriad of perception levels.
I love seeing the obscure; I think it’s the best bit of almost everything. It makes every life experience that margin more personal, and secretly memorable. That’s an elating thought. Of course there are downsides, logistically in society and probably on a personal level too, but I’m pretty sure you’re right about me, and the thought of that makes me very happy! :)

On another note, however, society’s need to label every extreme personality and mentality trait with an ‘X’ deficiency, or an ‘over-active Y’ can be very hurtful. Can’t we just appreciate- or at least accept- every extreme and middle-of-the-road part of someone without giving them a potentially hurtful or stifling label to go with it? This is something that affected me a lot as a child.

I’m dying to know how you were going to finish before you were silenced by a character count?

Are you looking to take English to degree level? It’s just that you use such an overabundance of vocabulary for Facebook and Formspring that it appears you long to express yourself.

If I decide to do a degree, it will almost definitely be in English, probably teamed with anthropology or philosophy. I do use a lot of unnecessary language (as I explained previously) - though if you know me well you’d know I definitely don’t need any more help expressing myself..it doesn’t just come out in language, I’m generally both creative and often excessive.

I would love to have the writing skills you have! Although I would settle for understanding what you say. (sounds silly I know but you have a very beautiful and complicated vocabulary) hopefully I will one day. :)

That’s so lovely…honestly though, a lot of professional writers would see the way I write as far too verbose, I tend to use a lot of words to say what doesn’t require a lot of words. It’s a choice, because I do love language, but I can sometimes end up not being particularly concise and the language becomes disjointed and inaccessible =/

5 things you want the most right now (possible or impossible)

I thought long and hard about this, but decided it was too personal to be specific on Formspring- to the point where no one would have understood it anyway!

I thought about putting ‘to wish and want for nothing’, but in honesty, I enjoy the raw humanity of yearning, and I appreciate the perspective and context emotions such as envy bring to the bigger picture of life. The things that came to mind are incredibly specific, and to do with the past more than things I’d wish for the future.

What would you say to someone who suspected you might be a very naive girl who struggles with perspective but covers it up with a beautiful vocabulary?

I’d say, your opinion is valid, and doesn’t bother me.
I do though, have a response: You have reasons, be they internal or external for your opinion. However, I know who and what I am- as do those close to me. For that reason, I can tell you don’t know me well, and that leads me to conclude that in my opinion, you are arrogant-minded as it takes a particularly acute level of audacity to make those assumptions about an acquaintance.

Vocabulary could never hide a struggle with perspective, and moreover, if there is a human on this earth who is adamant they are not naive to any degree, then more fool them. I think you are probably substituting the word ‘unintelligent’ for the word ‘naive’. I can’t think of many other reasons why you would assume I would have an uncomfortable relationship with perspective and that be related to the way I structure sentences at all.

Conceptually, perspective is arguably one of the most subjective things on this planet. Perhaps I struggle with your perspective. But I am content and well-rounded in mine.

On a more personal level, Kevin (as I am 99.8% sure this is you), It’s interesting, because in my opinion, your perspective is all wrong. Largely because I see your ability for open-mindedness as defunct. No one knows all the answers, but least of all the person who is convinced they have it all worked out! :)


In conclusion;
I know a lot of words, I sometimes make mistakes; other times I don’t and I have a set of beliefs on the vast subject of life that are, to a degree, fluid by default.
If by your own set of beliefs that makes me naive and in costume, then that is the character I am on your stage.

I know what’s backstage. So it’s fine by me :)
