The Beanster More Personal Questions (78* d) RE: More Personal Questions 16 Sep 00


I always keep in mind that these nutty people who ask way-too-personal questions (or touch a pregnant woman's tummy!) probably have some sizeable degree of personality uh...deficits, for lack of a better word. No boundaries, low social intelligence--that kind of thing.

I see a lot of undiagnosed mental illness and various psychopathology in my job (part of which is custody/visitation cases, speaking of kids in difficult situations...) and some of these people have asked things that just automatically make me chuckle: What religion are you? Has a man ever hit you? Are those your real nails? Have you ever had an abortion?

It's interesting because I usually don't even get that from active psychotics or mentally retarded people--it's these messed up parents who come through the door who think they're "normal" who are the ones, 9 times out of 10, who always floor me with these inappropriate questions. Never ceases to amaze me. Speaking of kids
