the Internet is perfect for ppl like us. Mine’s 3rd grade. I was lucky in that I fought back mentally and decided to deal with people as individuals rather than groups. I don’t trust groups of 3 or more, and rarely groups of 2 even.
I also try not to join groups. If I find more than a few people agreeing with me, I often flip to contrary mode because I don’t want to be a majority opinion most of the time, especially if it requires belittling others, either who are there or not there.
Keeps me spry… and annoying to deal with at times smile emoticon I’m agreeable one-on-one and in agreeable groups, but when there’s disagreement, I side with the ‘other guy’, always.
I could’ve been a defense attorney in another life, if there’s such a thing. I call them “alternate timelines”. Different parents, different life circumstances, I’d be up there defending the worst person, not to necessarily get them off – if they’re wrong their wrong – but so that at LEAST they get their day in court and a decent hearing rather than a pitchfork and torch lynching.
