Anyone who knows me would probably describe me as being very talkative. So much so, that when I'm being quiet, it is just naturally assumed that something is wrong with me. I've also had several people comment to me that sometimes when I talk, I will suddenly and unexpectedly just switch topics in the middle of a sentance.

Example: "Wow...That is one REALLY long name that person has. What is that, like six middle names? Where are they man it REALLY pisses me off that they went out to dinner without me and didn't think to invite me. Especially when they KNOW I was there and that I hadn't eaten all day. Thats just rude."

Rollin, my fiance always gripes at me for staying awake so late at night, and I admit, I had a hard time getting to sleep most nights because its hard to shut my brain off. I've always described it before as a buzzing. Or kinda like if you leave your TV on late at night and when the programming stops for the wee night hours, all the TV does is hiss with that constant static. Thats what my brain is like. But recently I have found a better way to describe the inner workings and high energy levels of my brain in a way that I think just about everyone and their mother will understand. (Rollin seems like he has an especially hard time understanding the way my brain works.) So this is it...It's perfect.

If you've ever seen the movie Harry Potter & The Scorcerer's Stone, The scene where Harry Potter plays his forst Wuiddich match has the best reference to how my brain works, that I've ever seen. Picture my brain as the snitch. Thats it. Its perfect. There is my brain just zooming around like a bat out of hell, 24 hours a day, and I am poor little Harry, just whizzing along behind it as fast as I can, trying to keep up with its activity and energy level. Sometimes I can catch up with it and grab on to it, keeping it under control, and others time I just can't quite make it.

This comes from being a 6 with a 7 wing, and being a 6 by itself already kinda makes it hard on you anyway because you are stuck smack dab in the middle of the thinking personalities, so no matter which way you lean, you're always gonna be taking on this extra mental energy, and it can be quite burdensome sometimes, though I truely do like being in the thinking triad and I don't think I'd ever wanna be any other number but my own.

Anyways, I don't know what any of this really had to do with anything, but I just wanted to put it out there because it felt nice to actually have such a concrete way for me to describe something so abstract and maybe that will make it easier for others to understand me a little better. I know my high mental energy is annoying to people at times, and I know that intellectually, I'm often difficult to keep up with. Yeah so people just often times don't get me and are often annoyed by me, and I've been thinking about it for a while, and I'm thinking that this has something to do with it.

Just some more observations...
