I find it interesting that you're aware you're being perceived this way without being able to change it (or do you not want to?).

In any case, upvoted for candid self-awareness, two qualities that should intersect more often.

Unable; if I was in a counterfactual world where it was psychologically possible for me to put more effort into communicating clearly then I would probably do so. The intrapersonal motivational dynamics are complex but it basically comes down to: my dopaminergic system is fucked up and my mind is twisted around like sheet metal. Which has a lot of upsides and a few large downsides.

On the plus side I have wicked good procedural learning and am good at everything. On the minus side I cannot put forth any effort. I can't even make myself dinner or basic huma... (read more)

I wrote out some paragraphs about how these are very incomplete and unordered but useful and blabla bla disclaimers and trading quantum information between superintelligences that'd seemingly been lost to the environment and trading between quantum branches and bla bla and how cosmological natural selection is relevant but Less Wrong ate it and I can't convince myself to rewrite it. So, here. My not-passive-agressive apologies for being schizotypal. The marginal cost of my efforts is probably higher than your model suggests, but I realize that nonetheless I'm promoting suboptimal norms for what does or doesn't get to count as a well-intentioned effort at communication. I accept all downvotes as justified.
