Well… Thing is I am a middle class white male ahhaa. Or at least that was how I was brought up.
I don’t think I have dyslexia. I always received high scores in reading comp and writing, even at a young age.
I just feel like the IQ test just comfirms the anxieties I’ve had for years about not being good enough. Of course this is something better reserved for a therapist.
I work in sales and I actually really like it. It’s a great line of work for someone with ADHD. That said, I really don’t want to do it forever and have been trying to teach myself some data science skills online and have been frustrated with it.
I guess talking to a therapist about how to manage my disability would be helpful.
Self knowledge is really important and I’m glad I know all of this. It really just feels like a huge hit to my ego.
