For here in Phabricator, maybe the most useful thing to mention is that I'm dyslexic. (I was told, in my thirties, by a learning support tutor at University. Not my tutor – she was a fellow employee. I was doubtful, at first, because I'm OK with spelling … after I read some books on the subject, various things from my past began to make sense.)
I don't think of the dyslexia as a disability, however it does shape the ways in which I learn. Critically:
- if learning goes wrong, then it might be endlessly difficult (or impossible) to correct the thinking.
For my sanity: I'll sometimes mentally block documentation, if there's that risk of wrongness, which might be not what you want to hear from a doc committer, but there it is :-)
I rarely mention the dyslexia, so that's a bit of weird introduction, if you never met me in person. Better to think of me as a cat man, and …
… a nano man. Truth: I nearly wept when I found myself presented with vi in mutt on freefall.
