I Am a Deep Thinker

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 21,966 People

SEND TO A FRIEND:

    I spend most of my day in deep thought.

    I think about a lot of things. Like the meaning of life, death, human behavior, God and other things similar to this. I honestly wish I didn't, but I can't help it.

    It really is the journey

    that counts and not the destination. It's the journey that teaches you about yourself. It's the journey that makes you empathetic to others. It's the journey that gives you wisdom and insight. It's the journey that helps you grow. It's the journey that teaches you what's really...

    I really like to analyze how people behave &

    why they're like that! That's why I'm really glad I took a psychology class in high school! I also learned about personality traits too & whether they're genetic or environmental!

    Do you ever just look around

    Does anybody have moments were they sit there

    and think about the meaning of life? Like I will literally sit for hours thinking about what is life. What will i do when I get older? Am I gonna just lead a typical boring life or will I leave a mark on the world? I can't be the only one thinking these things right? Right?

    what were we before we were born?

    i've always wondered this question for a very long time. i'm a very deep thinker really, and so, what were we before we were born? where did we really come from? were we a different shape (true form even maybe?!)? and what happens to us when we die? do we end up in the infinite...

    In recent weeks, I made a web scraper to grab a

    few million arbitrary comments from reddit. I used the text from these comments to train a model for an algorithm called word2vec. In a nutshell, what it does is look at words and contexts and assign a vector to each unique word such that vectors for words with a similar usage...

    I've always been able to read people like a

    humans are always feeling empty.

    I dont think humans are capable of feeling peace or fulfillment. We are always searching for the "missing piece" or "that something" that we believe will bring happiness and peace.

    Do you think that science is born from

    philosophy? Sometimes I think that philosophy is like science's crazy friend who is always coming up with crazy ideas.. But once in a while, science says "... You know what? That's interesting, that worth looking into..? 🤔

    I always think what's past the universe

    and religions. Though I'm not religious. I'll always try to see what's beyond what we know of and haven't explored or have access to. Like what's in the ocean, realms of the dead, death itself, Gods and who made them, etc.

    This can't be all there is.

    Wake up, eat, school/job, get home, eat, sleep. Throw in a wife/husband and kids just adds to the routine. God damn it. I hate this. There is so much to do in this world but I have so little interest. I loath (I actually love them you will see what I mean) these books and...

    my biggest flaw is how deeply i think.

    it isolates me from everyone around myself because no one seems to understand me, they can't relate at all. so, i as a result am just left feeling very alone in this world. my brain thinks the worst, it always assumes the worst possible scenario and i hate that about myself. i...

    Individuality. There are times

    as a human when we feel the need to separate ourselves, to gain a better understanding to our daily habits and actions. Instead of putting people in groups of stereotypes, which is very vague in terms of defining people, I look at others like they are their own category. As a...

    and how much I love you. All I can say is I love you more. More every time I hear your voice. More than my next breath, and the sun that greets me daily; even if I don't see it, I know it's there. Even though we're not together, at the moment, I hope that you know, every day, I...

    So this may seem really obvious to a lot of

    why some people love being dared... I don't. I don't want someone to tell me to do stupid stuff. Is it because they love being challenged or they are just an attention seeker?

    I don't think global warming is completely our

    fault. What if global warming is a natural occurrence due to the real ending of the ice age... Maybe the north and the south poles are melting BECAUSE it's just the end of the ice age.. Maybe all of this is a natural reaction just like the ice age was in the first place.

    How is darkness the absence of light

    but black is a color? What color is space? Space is emptiness and emptiness is clear (just like water) that's why we can see though it right? So why is outer space dark/black if emptiness is clear? What if at the edge of the universe (which is always expanding) there is...

    True Love vs Fake Love True love is open

    and honest. Fake love plays games, hides their feelings and tries to manipulate the emotions of others to get the upper hand. True love is self-sacrificing. Fake love is ego-centric. True love gives from the heart. Fake love gives for something in return. True love forgives...

    Everything is relative in this world.

    Each idea of right and wrong, black and white, god and devil. and many more. They are just the perception of each person followed by mass crowd. one must be free from all the pre conceptions of life and focus on what's the actual demand of any thing that exists.
