Profound yet dumb

I'm capable of doing the most complicated, 'profound' things yet I remain in essence a dumb person. I am a paradox; I'm capable of reading the most heavy-going philosophical novels yet am incapable of solving simple mathematical exercises which are designed for under-achieving twelve-year-olds or nor am I capable of doing the most blatant, obvious things which most people can do in their sleep.

I'm both ends of the spectrum. My personality is constituted by numerous sub-personalities, and these 'sub-personalities' surface in my clumsy/dumb actions or in my intelligent obervations. They also both surface in my dreaming life and waking life. In my dreams my profound and dumb entities clash and spiral against one another, but in waking life they are manifest solely on their own.

I can't seem to get onto your profile.

I know what you mean. I, too, seem to have qualities that are each other's opposites, which can be quite confusing. But I guess most people are like that, especially young people, since we haven't quite found ourselves.

Its nothing to do with not having "found yourself". I have a pretty good idea of who I am.

And my profile no longer exists, SK. At least for the time being.
