I like how you describe it. One thing I love about interacting with you is that your ability to express your experience of ADHD affords me the ability to see myself in it and it’s refreshing as it usually feels lonely as I’m not always able to express what it’s like despite usually being pretty ok with wordsmithing and wordplay. Some aspects of experience are difficult to put into words. I love finding “perfect words” – that is, good word combinations that are solid enough descriptions of something that I consider important. Skeptical Generalist as a way to describe myself has been useful and I was proud at finding that combination of words and putting them together. Back in the mid 1990s, Rational Mystic was another combination of words for self-description that worked very well for that period of time — and I could use it again as it’s still self-descriptive just not a focal facet at the moment.
