    How to Murder Your Intellectualism

    There’s this vivacity and aggressiveness that I had when I was younger, in my teens. Perhaps it was stupidity. The world has since kicked most of it out of me. I’m pretty sure that I sentenced it to death when I convinced myself that I was an intellectual, capable of being a tenured academic, or a scientific researcher. Neuroscience is what I had in mind but, after many years of incompetence and failure, I gave up. Now I can only hope that what I had before will come back to me, like a dog that you drop off on a dirt road 30 miles from your home who comes swaggering back one day, tongue out and oblivious to what you had in mind.

    The problem I perceive is that this "intellectual" bent has severely stilted my self-expression. Now I find myself in a position and on a path where my youthful, unfiltered brashness is not only not shat upon, but actually encouraged. It would only benefit me to regain it. How the fuck do I kill that stupid little voice in my head that's like..

    ..you're an NTeee. yu are a rational. logics.. that you don't understand. math. feign being scientifically minded. avoid uncertaintee.. smart. IVORTTYWOER. iq means something. statistics
    Alcohol? I've never had a drinking problem. Maybe if I just flirt with one to get myself back on the right path?

    Where is flurps..

    Maybe just stop hanging around here? I'm not an INTP.

    Start smoking weed. Try to find the Ballmer Peak, but for weed, that makes you super creative and uninhibited.

    Eh, no. Weed gives me anxiety. Now amphetamines..

    Amphetamines just make you think harder. "I've never had an alcohol problem," he said, as if checking out a new brand of cereal.

    Marry someone that demands a rational explanation for everything. That will get you pretty sick of it.

    Find something you mildly disdain or think of as not yourself and actively learn the appeal of the experience. Try a different way of being on for size for the sake of learning without redefining yourself.

    It's like playing devil's advocate with yourself but with being and doing instead of thinking.
    Don't remember changing this.
