    when i was 13, my mates all knew stuff, but i didn't grasp it. only last year i started to understand stuff that they understood years ago.

    my perception is backward. i know it is.

    What sort of stuff are you talking about?
    Are you sure it's really that important, I don't know if your talking about stuff like 'Gordon Brown is the prime minister' or just things regarding the people you have around you.

    Are you referring to visual perception? As in not being able to detect distances and relative sizes? Colours?

    If yes, then it's not common, but it doesn't mean you're mentally retarded. Depending on the degree to which your perception is flawed/different, you might be "normal" (there are quite some people who distinguish colours differently) or somewhat impaired... I can't say, you need a more specific diagnostic.

    Edit: Haha, sorry :laugh: When you said "retarted" I thought it must be something biological/psychological.

    If your issue is simply inexperienced at life, then don't worry. The best thing to do is interact with a lot of different people. You're not old, still have time.

    I think it takes certain bad experiences to learn those kind of things, if you're adamant that you'll never take things for granted again perhaps you're in a better state of mind than your friends - I for one keep forgetting this all the time, lol.

    So it's more sort of moral lessons. I think parents are mostly responsible for teaching their children those.

    Er ... read some of Christ's teachings
