Re: SCT and intelligence

My therapist brought up SCT with me and it fits me perfectly. I've been told I'm intelligent and I have a challenging job that requires brain power. But, the amount of effort it takes for me to put together a sentence, to think of the right words, to recall facts and concepts takes SO much effort. My memory retrieval is terrible. The memories are there, it just takes time to pull them up. Because of this, people often finish sentences for me. And I have to think of alternate words because I can't think of the ones I want to use. And I have to replay what someone has said in my head, a few times, in order to understand it. It ends up making me feel dumb, often. It doesn't help that I am surrounded by fairly intelligent, quick thinking people in my life.
