Only 60 questions, took a ‘career interest profiler’ from here https://www.mynextmove.org/explore/ip and it got me a list of possible careers that would be compatible with my personality as they saw it. I didn’t answer the 60 questions carefully but figured it’d be “close enough” and it is.

I’m surprised I’d never heard of it. “A Labyrinth without center and periphery” I’d look for a synthesis of this with an “and-also” allowing for generative (such as tree modeling), or modular expressions. It’s an all-at-once kind of thing in describing. I don’t think I could adopt it exclusively but it’s very very likely that is my natural leaning.

I’m surprised I’d never

“I am fascinated that you interpret this phenomenon as of your mind instead of of meaning/truth itself. can you expand on the reasoning behind that choice?” yes. I’ve bumped into people not understanding me since I was a kid. “He beats to a different drummer”, “Oh there’s kenny again – just let him talk until he’s done – don’t try to make sense of it” – and so I suspect that a good amount of people likely don’t think the same way that I do. So, an honest or authentic approach I figured would be doing all of this and applying it only and solely to myself FIRST, understanding it as thoroughly as I possibly can, and ONLY THEN, start to universalize for all people and possibly for all things.

Oh very much. I’ve never had it confirmed fully that I’m ASD but any informal test I take puts me there, “Aspies” said “you’re one of us” – so I accept that I probably am. I never had a problem walking into situations. I’ve heard a virtual record needle scratch as I walk into some situations. Every turns and looks my way with at “what is HE doing here?!” – and at that point I know that maybe I shouldn’t have. But I don’t get a cartoon exaggerated response from a group, I know I won’t likely see the subtle glances and such. I mean I see them but they don’t register as all that important even though rationally I know they’re supposed to be. I remember one job I had at an oil refinery. First week of the job, I go to the lunchroom. Big giant place. Cheap food. I get on line, get my lunch and I find a free seat with a group and sit down. Everybody else turned their heads but the group at the table were fine and chit-chatted. I’m not for small talk but I can do it with friendlies that know basic manners. [I know those rules] I sat there for a few days and one day someone pulled me aside almost violently and said “what do you think you’re doing sitting over there? You don’t belong at that table”. I asked why. Apparently, it was the table where the BIG SHOTS sat at so as to be “one of the boys” – but it was all high level executives, like CEO/COO etc. Well, because the guy was violent about it to my body, I sat somewhere else after that. But I knew I could go over to that table and sit down. I felt no difference that I was a temp and they were millionaire big shots. We were all there to eat food.

Oh very much. I’ve
