Confidence vs shyness. http://bit.ly/IFD2W5 This is one of the most important and inspirational things I’ve read this year. I get caught up in the too much thinking thing.
Confidence means being in the moment and acting with intention, not distracted by second thoughts or in your head.

A conversation with savant Daniel Tammet. http://bit.ly/IduQe6 The way his mind works is so fascinating.
Synesthesia, something Tammet mentions, is something I actually experience. Mainly with numbers, particularly numbers 2-6, have a personality. Even numbers are feminine and odd are male. 2 and 3 are in love, 4 loves 3 and is always trying to find ways to get rid of 2. 5 loves 4, but for whatever reason follows 4 around and helps in her crazy schemes to get rid of 2. 6 defies the rule and is male, and is a neutral party, trying to get 4 to abandon her quest. Numbers above this have some personality, but it’s not as distinct to me as those. 1 is a male child with no distinctive personality.
I feel like I’m crazy confessing this. Numbers are just abstract representation. I recall doing math in grade 3 and see these dynamics play out on the page. I knew that it wasn’t normal so I never told anyone.
People with autism often also have synthesia, as well people with synthesia are often involved in creative work. (from the Wikipedia article).
