There are some glaring flaws with the methodology, but has enough merit to at least be interesting and somewhat valuable.

I got 28 out of 36.

Which really surprised me, since I am rather socially inapt.

But totally fine in a random group of strangers in Amsterdam :p

I've met some new people lately and after trying to explain my social ineptness to them (which I'm certain of because there's a long long history etc etc) they just kind of shook their heads and laughed. Apparently that's just one of the funny things I say. Nobody believes me.

Only explanation I can find is You learn, martian! Things change! You're not who you were 10 years ago. Or even 5 Smile

So basically what you're saying I should be confident in my ineptitude because I'll misunderstood to the point of being socially acceptable?Smile

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

If that works for you then sure! But what I tried to say is don't rely on your old feelings of who you are too much. At certain ages being a giant nerd and all doesn't mean you're socially awkward anymore. Even if you think so, other people might surprise you

Allow me to be a bore, and I agree with you.
I think I actually read about that in book called 'strangers to ourselves' (a pretty good psychology book)

People retain their childhood/adolescence images of themselves for too long and despite the fact they have changed.

A font designed to help dyslexics. I didn't know there was such a thing.
Any dyslexics want to give a verdict?

The Humbe eBook Bundle 2!


Quote:
Six sweet literary works. Humble eBook Bundle 2 features six novel works of prose from respected authors. Name your price for Little Brother by Cory Doctorow, Boneshaker by Cherie Priest, Spin by Robert Charles Wilson, and Shards of Honor by Lois McMaster Bujold. Pay more than the average and you’ll also receive The Last Unicorn: Deluxe Edition by Peter Beagle and Just a Geek by Wil Wheaton!

Pay what you want. Separately, this anthology of literary greatness would typically cost around $70. But we’re letting you set the price!

Compatible with computers and mobile devices. These books are available in multiple formats including PDF, MOBI, and ePub, so they work great on your computer, eBook readers, and a wide array of mobile devices! Please note that this is the digital debut for some of these great titles, and if you’re having any viewing or usability issues, please let us know!

Support charities and authors. Choose how your purchase is divided: between the authors, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the Child’s Play Charity, or the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America. And if you like this promotion, a tip to Humble Bundle would be greatly appreciated!

DRM-free too!
