Greetings and welcome to my user page! Until recently I thought I couldn't tell you about myself because of WP:CHILD, but apparently the Wikimedia Foundation considers a minor to be anyone younger than 16, not 18. That pleases me, as there are some things that I couldn't tell you before that you will find useful.
First off, my brain is strange, though I suppose I am fond of it despite that. Or maybe because of it. Either way, my IQ is around 137, which has its perks, but those are offset somewhat by mental deficiencies: Asperger's Syndrome, Attention-Deficit Disorder and probably Major Depressive Disorder, although the latter is not diagnosed because there would be no advantage in doing so. I am medicated for the second, and otherwise somehow cope with all three, but I am not without my occasional lapses. In particular, any edits I make at night are more likely to be of questionable intelligence or downright foolish. This is because my ADHD medications serve as both cognitive and social inhibitors. Conversely, their wearing off results in substantial disinhibition. Essentially, when I'm not on them, I'm more likely to pay attention to irrelevant details, which prevents me from focusing on relevant ones, as well as make decisions impulsively when they should have been thought through more carefully. This is not to say that most edits I make while off my medications are stupid, or I'd entirely refrain from editing at night. And I don't try to do stupid things, because that just creates messes for me to deal with later, but when one's thought process is altered, it can be really hard to tell at the time. So if I've done something stupid, particularly something uncharacteristically so, check to see if the edit was made after 19:00 EST (23:00 UTC). If so, that's probably part of the reason.
My greatest aptitudes are in public policy and history, but I'm generally not skilled at content creation and therefore stay away from it. (Anyone wanting to laugh at my pathetic encyclopedic ability is invited to look at Civil Defense Patrols (Guatemala), whose writing is significantly worse than that of this user page.) Instead I created my Wikipedia account to make minor spelling, grammar and cohesion changes to articles while at school (as I could not edit anonymously due to an IP block), and not surprisingly made my home in the WikiGnome-suited new pages patrol. I'm sure I was terrible at it, as someone with no knowledge of Wikipedia's policies cannot possibly decide effectively whether or not articles meet those policies. Nevertheless, I wasn't yelled at that much, all things considered, so… I guess I learned quickly enough? Nowadays, you cannot patrol new articles without first obtaining the relevant userright, which was a wise decision.
Although I don't do much writing, I have access to almost 300 databases and tens of thousands of journals through my college. If you ever need access to anything, please don't hesitate to ask me!
