Can’t we all be intelligent and fun to be around?

It was brought to my attention the other day by self-reflection that I have a high need for cognition. (I got that from Persusasion haha) Anyway, it means that I am constantly asking questions, analyzing the structure of things, ideas, and beliefs, and examining assumptions. Sounds like a philosophy major doesn’t it?! Critical consciousness is sort of like a switch that once you turn on, the floodgates go open and they never close again. It sucks of course and at times I have to try extra hard to be normal in social situations. Since Philosophy is a relatively small community at CSS, you’ll see these guys and gals sitting in the back of classes, hidden away in the library, or walking aimlessly in the halls considering a theory they may have recently learned. We’re not socially awkward by all means but we do bring a lot of headnoise to any occasion. It pays to have a philosophical friend though…. well until they take a logic course. Then we just become annoying haha.
