Welcome back to the Trenchant Edges, a newsletter about weird ideas and people I keep insisting that I’m going to change the name of. The pace of things has been unusually high in my life juggling clients, my new job preparing taxes, and researching and writing this newsletter.
Thanks for this!
The quote "Disregard for social hierarchy, masking, love of novelty, dislike of routine, intolerance of uncertainty, creativity, quirky sense of humour, and (not always) a drive to rename people, animals and things.” hit a little to close to home. And although I am somewhat hesitant to pathologize parts of my perceived personality, having the PDA-term as a starting point to find more information on this particular issue is helpful.
Well this makes me wonder... While your short summary of PDA I feel isn't a total match for me, it's certainly close enough raise my eyebrows. Thanks for the links, something to dig into and mull over.
Well this was timely for me, thank you. This has been coming up a lot and feels very relevant.
