It sounds like you are in the right place, so welcome to the site. It took me a long time to understand why I am different. Realize I am now 74 years old and suffered a massive stroke that fried my brain about a year and a half ago. But why I am different than most NTs now makes a lot of sense. Humans are so much more complex than anyone ever realized. It is because we have multiple brains. One on the left side of our skull which is the dominant brain. It is our daytime brain. And the other brain is on the right side of the skull which is our supporting brain. It is online during our REM and NREM sleep states. One of the major characteristics that make humans unique is that when we die, we can come back to life. When our left side is smashed and dies, our right side of our brain can step in and decide to carry on. (It correlates with the description of a near death experience. I remember my near death experience after being attacked by a large bull when I was around 3 years old.) Eventually our left side comes back online but takes the place formally occupied by our sleep state brain. IT IS A BRAIN FLIP.

But these two sides of our brain are very, very, very different. The right brain is so huge, so utterly huge, that we can spend a lifetime learning and growing deep down inside us.
