Like I knew this retarded guy at my old job and if you knocked a box of screws off the bench he would be like "OMG U KNOCKED OVEr 47 SCREWS AND 23 BOLTS" but if you asked him to a do a bunch of complicated things he gets flustered and confused and people expected less of him even though he could process numbers and shit faster than a computer
makes you think how different peoples brains work and process information. I know i have my weaknesses in some areas but I am good in others, everyone is different. You can get a lot done with lots of varied skillsets and brain functions but the way society is set up they want everyone to think and act the same and it makes me sad that a lot of these potentially very talented people get shelved because they don't "meet criteria" and they just spend their lives on disability because there is no place for them in the professional world.
Maybe it's just the way things are supposed to be and my brain is just not up to the standards to see how everything is perfect and getting better every day. I basically fall into the same category except I have learned over the years to force myself to not think for myself around people because it just gets me into trouble. Just smile, wave, put on the mask and be fake as fuck and treat people like robots it seems to get you the furthest in life.

Your job title isn’t the only thing that determines how influential you are. Every word you use at work expresses your personal brand, from your confidence and authority to your depth of knowledge. And it’s verbs–those action words that should be the engine of a sentence–that most often trip us up.
Overusing certain weak verbs can make you sound weaker, too. They can undercut your ability to inspire others and suggest to listeners–from top executives and colleagues to your direct reports–that you aren’t really sure of yourself. So while there’s certainly room for uncertainty in any workplace, you might want to trim these verbs from your vocabulary.
