    Sense of futility would certainly be strongly dependent on subjective perspective. I don't think it's uncommon for talented and able people to feel overwhelmed, even when dealing with situations well within their abilities. Possibly part exposure and desensitisation . Also part genetics. On my dad's side of the family, we're typically more limbic than calm, so it didn't surprise me when those siblings or my dad have done rash things when they felt pressured. I'm aware of it though, (having grown up and seen that my behaviour was at times similar to theirs) so I try to keep my temper/impulsiveness in check. I usually succeed.

    Thanks! Hopefully it doesn't die a shameful unremarked death.

    Well, basically I was summing it up as follows; stressors cause a person to internalise futility. The more futile a situation seems, the more people begin to act desperately and with less concern for consequences. Or in other words, they feel they have less to lose. When you have less to lose, you feel safer in exhibiting low impulse control, relative to if you had more to lose. Writing that out just now, I think a "fuck it" mentality might be a safeguard against other mental illness

    Apparently reading comprehension is ridiculous.

    There was a Ni-tingling moment of synchronicity recently where, immediately after finishing reading The Stranger for the first time, you sent a friend request. I now pretty much assume that you've either cameras rolling throughout my house or a rootkit installed on my iPad. I can't rule out the possibility that you've both, though.

    I couldn't narrow down all of my amazing qualities to just one. Humanity should just be grateful for all of them.

    People relating my username to garbage is one thing, but referencing some stupid detail of my history is another.
