The Symptoms of Being Special
« on: July 25, 2011, 08:39:48 AM »

~Sudden flashes of anger.
~Euphoria.
~Counter social impulses.
~Feelings of superiority.

-Page 253 Specials.


Another symptom is the inability to cry.

Have you have had the symptoms of being Special?

2//5 or more of the symptoms for a yes, 1//5 or less for a no and had lasted for more than a week.

Yes, I have had the symptoms of being Special in the past.

And would someone tell me what the hell "counter social" is!? Because Google is being bogus!

I think it means anti-social. You don't like to deal with other people.

I only have that one.

3/5, I guess, because I don't know what Euphoria means...

I've had all of these at some point in my life, except the inability to cry, I can always cry. I've also had all their opposites at some point. I tend toward being the opposite of Special most days.

3 out of five...
Counter-social, anger, superiority. Always towards humanity.

4/5 Everything except the inability to cry I have had some time in my life. Inability to cry, is that even possible for the a normal human being?

It was possible for me, but only after my brain had been majorly screwed with.

4/5. Mind-wise, I almost am completely Special. I look somewhat Special as well.
Just not in the good way.
