I respect nons who learn psionics, they usually do a hell of a lot better than the vast majority of whiny, lazy born-psis....*stops* lol

Why not respect nons who don't learn it? Their still people too, just not as energeticly developed. I get your point though haha, just making a pointless point.. :P
Wow.. that's a good point! Sorry... really bad joke...
But yeah I think that s psi summer camp would be a GREAT idea, I'd pay big bucks to go to that if it was real, and good quality. Or even full out psi school!

I think thats very rude way to look at nons, and shows wonders for how shallow people are.

I don't think 'shallowness' or 'depth' has much to do with it at all. I'm a geek. I have a narrow range of things which I am deeply interested in. I don't think there is anything rude about saying you find people who like to talk about things you are not interested in to be boring. They would probably find me boring, too--or, just weird. <lol>

I have trouble enough relating to people in general--relating to people who don't share a significant spectrum of my senses is nearly impossible for me. I fully accept that as a failing of mine, not theirs. This changes nothing. I still think they are boring. ;)

I can be much more inclusive than you give me credit for. I also think some psis are boring.

Everyone is different in my experince, different in how they see things, or how they learned them. They might not know as much as me sometimes, or they know more. Its the layers that make them up I look for.

People are all different, and some of them are boring. ;)

People in general do not interest me that much. I appreciate the fact that they are out there, and I am enough of a geek to hold to the IDIC philosophy, but I'm not fascinated by the majority of people. The guy who fixes my car has my full appreciation--I'm glad he's into cars, and I hope he likes his work. I have no desire to discuss cars with him, apart from him explaining what is wrong with mine, and how much it will be to fix it.

There's nothing more dishonest than pretending to be interested in someone who is droning on about a subject you despise or find utterly tedious. Why would I want to waste precious time in my life on something like that? I would rather watch a bee gather pollen than talk to a stranger with whom I have nothing in common. I'm just not into people.

I'm going to have to agree with Winged Wolf on this one - at least in some small way. I struggle to find individuals that actually 'interest' me beyond politeness.
I'll give anyone the chance to put themself across, to take the lead in conversation, and to even choose the line of conversation...but rarely am I rapt in what they have to say, and all too often I make it quite obvious too.
Usually, it's down to my own narrow range of personal interests, and my inability to branch out into new things that I have no initial interest in. And the way I see it, why should I? There are few that would actively take the time to research what I find enlightening so they could converse with me on a competant level. So, in truth, the failing is a case of 'six of one, half a dozen of the other'.

It doesnt make you a bad person to openly admit to yourself that you find people boring. It makes you honest, and honesty is something I prize more than an empty smile and a nod from someone who clearly hasnt heard a word of what I have been saying because their minds are on something else they find more stimulating.

I agree

Personally, I'm just plain anti-social. Being with people is okay, but I'd rather prefer to be with myself. Our society has way too many people who try to force their ideas upon others. *cough* Evangelists *cough*. There's nothing wrong with that. It's just my personal opinion though.
