Would you say you have a type of sensitivity (physical or otherwise) that other people often fail to understand?

Here's a short article about cold hypersensitivity. Researchers analyzed 1,111 Japanese women to discover, ostensibly, a genetic predisposition to it. It's not something I experience, but I think I'll be more sympathetic to it from now on. (Instead of only sharing my advice to wear fewer clothes before the weather gets colder!)

    I have no idea whatsoever what other people, think, believe, feel, understand, or don't about me.  All I know for sure are my own beliefs, feelings and understanding about others.

    My better half does - gluten. Gluten is antagonistic towards thyroxine and she has Hashimoto's.

      I have an overactive sensory gene-to-brain connecter that gives me the ability pick up on poor grammar like Spider-Man’s Spidey Sense warns him of danger. Grrrrrrrr.

    I think you mean that you lack the control to keep from pointing out grammatical errors or perhaps lack the empathy to know how it makes people feel.

      “Feel”? What does that mean? I’m completely unfamiliar with it. Grrrrrrrrr.

    As far as other people with whom I share and talk - - no.

    I either share well and others understand, or I have a good sense of with whom I choose to share.
    Or both.

    Either way, most of the time if I share something, others understand.

    I have to wear sunglasses no matter how cloudy it is.  I can't deal with loud noise anymore ears hurt.  So, I'm never without a spare pair of sunglasses and a package of ear plugs.  My family used to make fun of me, but I didn't care.  I don't remember ever feeling like someone was bothered truly bothered.

    Your straightforward frankness to arrive at a conclusion with dawdling. Oops. Freudian slip.
    Certainly, I aim to provide direct and honest responses without unnecessary delay. Here!
    The gist of Shinko's argument is to strive for a transformation of violent enemy relations within conflict, away from relationships characterised by antagonism, which is understood as inherently destructive and unconducive of peaceful relations. Instead, these malfunctioning relations could be subsumed and channelled into agonistic encounters between adversaries, which supposedly paves the way for more constructive relations between former enemies (Mouffe 2013;Shinko 2008). Agonistic peace has indeed developed into its own strand of peace research This post was edited by CosmicWunderkind at April 19, 2024 4:31 PM MDT
