My Mental Illness Is Better Than Yours

Oh no,I think I am suffering from LOW LATENT INHIBITION (LLI) !I checked out this term after watching tv series, Prison Break yesterday night that the main character,Michael Scofield is also sufferring from LLI.Many people are not familiar with LLI term,ok,according to Wikipedia,having LLI means-

  • Unable to subconciously ignore stimuli from the outside
  • Constantly thinking of ways to improve the world
  • In desperate need to help others and reduce suffering from the people surrounding you
  • Not a genius at school, but still full of creative ideas.

For example,normal people look at a tree and see a tree; people with LLI look at a tree and see the leaves turn brown on the edges, see the little cracks in the branches etc.Yeah,just like me!

Let say I saw a big building .Normally,normal people would see or simply scan through it as Just A Big Building,but I love to notice the small small oblivious things, it’s like zooming in, capture it and analyze them, such as the cracks on the building, how the architecture meet up and I am sure that there are much more to see rather than seeing it as Just A Big Building !

Well,it is pretty obvious that I am suffering from LLI,but guess what,that is fucking Cool,judging from above 4 decent conditions for having LLI !!! (Thanks to No One,not even gOd) Hell yeah...I am so glad and 'luckily' I got this kind of mental illness(LLI) rather than Anorexia nervosa,ADHD and all the freak mental illness,I guess LLI is kinda freak too (^_^)//

I think it's not always these symptoms. I mean not all people suffering under LLI have a desperate need to help others and not all are a genius in everything else but school.

hypocondry is a bad problem, you shouldn't just say that you have this illness, you'd better see a doctor before assuming this kind of stuff because it carries a great deal of problems. If you actually apyd attention to the episode of prison break the doctor says that this illness can be dangerous to you if you have low IQ, maybe you should get tested. Anyway it's just a heads up.

Do you check out the part when people who think that they have LLI usually do not have LLI?

Many find LLI cool, maybe that's just who you want to be. Its really not so cool to have that illness.

LLI is just a scientific term for a mental disorder. In other words, a mind that does not think conventionally.

I don't know if I have LLI or ADD, but when I enter a bus for example, I will time the amount of time it takes to get from spot A to B calculating the weight of the vehicle, the amount of trafic, the amount of people in the vehicle, the weather, the mood of the driver. Most of you peeps will think "WTF WOULD YOU DO THAT!?". But for me it's subconscious and is the most normal thing in the world. My sixth sense is also very strong, I'm impossible to surprise.

The good thing is that I'm very correct in my calculations, wether it's distance, persuasive ability, functional and political actions.

It's an asset of some kind, but it also causes me to have a severe lack of focus on one particular thing. Meaning I never got a highschool degree at school. I do however have a great and well payed job with good future prospects.

no, its just that you think youve got it. most of those has nothing to do with LLI anyways;

"You cannot self-diagnose LLI. If you think that you have the condition, then you probably do not have it.

It may sound 'cool' to say that you have LLI, but having a self-image is fruitless.."

i guess you can be happy to know that you DONT have LLI

LLI can be extremely frustrating. Especially if you have any negative emotions going on in your brain.

This might not be scientific, but basically LLI seems to be a right-brain dominant function. Most people don't interact with their subconscious too much. Those with LLI do.

I have self diagnosed myself, but know I have this. No doctor knows better than myself, because I am honest and know myself.

Essentially, I vew much more than most everyone else. Am a leftie. When driving, I see and process everything, not just the car in front of me. I see as far as my eye can perceive, from the fathest left to right, up and down.

CAPD, or central auditory processing disorder, is a part of it. I don't filter out sounds, whatsoever. They all mesh into one, sometimes my brain turns the concoction into a harmany, while other times it can be quite painstaking.

Intuition is a natural for those with LLI. At least, those with an intact left brain. The vast majority of my processing is so very beyond words. It's a lightning fast integration of sounds, images, feelings, smells, tastes, and touch.

If a person has LLI and has average, or lesser intelligence, there's a great chance the individual will suffer from schizophrenia or something just as devestating. Luckily my IQ puts me above average. No reason to specify exactly.

Interestingly, I do have all of the aboved mentioned traits. I would surely wither away if I didn't help people out in every which way possible. I am constantly thinking of ways to better humanity and the world.

The only thing that doesn't fit me, is that I was a bit of a genius at school when younger, although I became incredibly aware of the brainwashing in school and stopped going altogether. The wise would do well to unlearn most things taught in school. There's an agenda behind the agenda, and it's not in your best interest to follow.

Overall, I wouldn't change a thing with who I am, how I am. It can be hell at times, but the ecstasy experienced by the most simple of things more than makes up for that.

Want to truly know if you have LLI? Have you ever experienced the life of an inanimate object? Have you ever witnessed the eternal essence of everyone and everything? I experienced this since I can remember, though at times when at my worst it fades out.

LLI is high sensitivity. When combined with the strong desire to learn and know (with an undamaged brain) it brings about genius..

I felt the need to add a little more to emphasize the extremity of what LLI brings. This will probably do away with notion of having LLI, to most people.

Those with LLI MUST have solitude regularly. They MUST find a quiet place, where they can decompress.

When I was young, I used to literally be a closet case. I would climb into the highest shelf, close the door, and meditate for hours daily.

It was vital to my well-being. What manifested from those experiences, was an understanding of the cosmos.

If you're not overwhelmed by the vast volume of information constantly being perceived, you don't have LLI. I guess the exception might be the super-genius. The one who not only perceived a million miles an hour but can also process equally fast. That's not me. I perceive at 1,000,000, process at 10,000. Most people are 100-1000 both ways.

Correct and Incorrect on both accounts. LLI Patients see the world in a very unstable way to the point when they are making something it has to be 100% perfect . Abit like OCD. there emotional sences are also affected by making them a very calm and pleasant person (in most cases it is found).

there need to help others will go along with there emotions (thus when a person is happy they will be more open to help others). but saying about them worrying about others problems isnt due to the illness itself but your view from watching this tv series and nothing more.

another in correction is the way you describe the way these people see the world. they dont zoom into an object at all when they look at it. they simply analyse the object itself and the foundations of the object (just as if it was a house of cards. a person with LLI would recognise the foundations of the structure to a precise measurement )
