Elementary, my dear.

Supposedly Watson the IBM super computer can analyze your writing to come up with a description of your personality. In response to this post it responded thusly.

You are guarded and somewhat indirect.
You are self-conscious: you are sensitive about what others might be thinking about you. You are independent: you have a strong desire to have time to yourself. And you are intermittent: you have a hard time sticking with difficult tasks for a long period of time.
Your choices are driven by a desire for efficiency.
You consider both helping others and achieving success to guide a large part of what you do. You think it is important to take care of the people around you. And you seek out opportunities to improve yourself and demonstrate that you are a capable person.

At least as good as my horoscope

Left sided birthing

The pain on my right side has been becoming somewhat more manageable. I haven't used as much advil or tylenol. I thought when I started playing with the left sublingual musculature/tongue I thought I would rapidly gain control of it however the process is much larger. It feels like I  am almost 'birthing' a new use of the left side of my head, face, neck sublingual musculature and tongue. It was not what I expected. I have not seen any particular value in what I am doing. It has been quite painful at times. I don't think the process is nearly over (where there would be a somewhat more equitable arrangement in the left and right side dominant control). What is becoming more clear to me that I had previously a false understanding of my right side dominance left side subordinance. There does not seem to be any new dichotomy in my personality. For an analogy it feels more like I had a hand that I never used and it's connections to the arm, shoulder and rest of the body are quite painful and sore to the new adaptation of use. I know I used the left tongue/ jaw/ etc previously but in subordinate pattern to the right. Using the left as the initiator of the movement is something I am finding to be very different.
