    Diagnose me

    I have no desire to fit into any society, I consider having to change myself to fit in to be a concession to who I really am. I have no desire for marriage or a family. I dont want to live past 55. I have a handful of friends and that has been dwindling over the years. I hate my job but I guess most people do. I enjoy throwing myself into projects every now and then. I have a strong desire not to subscribe to modes of thinking that are not my own. I do not let society dictate my moral compass. I have no desire to fit in. I like authentic people but those are hard to come by. I make people uncomfortable and I dont mind that. I think most people are idiots. I have a keen understanding of human nature and find most people predictable. I struggle to sleep at night. I enjoy philosophy and psychology and lately mathematics. I have no desire for a normal life. I have a stoic approach to life. I don't want to be too involved in things as they would stick to me and drag me down. I consider myself to be a very free spirit. I understand freedom at a level most people do not or cannot. I am working towards being financially independent and hence free.

    How old are you? (The lack of a desire to live past 55 needs this context to be meaningful.) At 50, I'd say you were depressed. At 30, I'd say you can't discount the possibility that you are overdriving the headlights when you say this. If you are 54, maybe I'd diagnose you as suicidal.

    The rest of this seems like a normal reaction to an overexposure to pop culture and/or social media, and to drowning in a Kafkaesque society.

    Edit: I use the term "normal" as a way to say this is how I think people ought to react, not in the sense that this is how most people react.

    prescription: sink yourself into alternate points of view as an exercise, keeping in mind the second of my signature quotes as you do.
    Insults are effective only where emotion is present. -- Spock, "Who Mourns for Adonais?" Stardate 3468.1.

    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. -- Aristotle

    This SEP field is glorious!

    You are too systematic.

    Why a prescription? Why do you assume something is wrong.

    The answer is implicit. It follows from your own word choice in the thread title, both definitively and thematically.

    You didn't say how old you are.

    Seeking diagnosis implies something's wrong. But it seems like you just want to argue with somebody who tells you there is something wrong with you. You've come to the right place. I diagnose you with excited delirium.

    This blurb of text reeks of illusion of asymmetric insight, trait ascription bias, and illusory superiority.

    DaDaMan, people will surprise you. Give them another chance.

    Is this bait to get someone to ask what you mean by this? I'll take it.

    What are you, a nudist or something?
