Information Hub

This page contains links to online information and articles in relation to both latent inhibition and low latent inhibition and will be updated gradually as more articles are found or as new articles are published. Please note that the full articles will not be published on this website and in order to view them you will need to take the relevant links included.

Although not all of the articles are dedicated specifically to low latent inhibition, many of them mention it as a factor in the research involved and are very useful as they cover a very broad area, which low latent inhibition itself also seems to do in terms of the characteristics and traits involved with it.

    I’d like to know if the diagnostic took to long to be confirmed. I always tried to understand what causes me being different and now seems like everything is explained. I hope I have LLI, its such a cool thing, haha!! Thank you for the page, its helping me a lot.

  3. Lewis says:

    It’s is not cool, yeah there may be a couple perks but there are also a lot of downsides to it.

  4. C. Y. AU says:

    Sorry, Samuel, but it’s really not cool. When others always don’t understand or misunderstand you, call you “strange“ and only few people can communicate with you (or don’t afraid of you). It’s very lonely… I used to believe all people have the almost same abilities (except the one who physically can’t), if they can spend more time on thinking, they can understand what I am talking about but not give up by saying “ok, you are smart (I am gifed student in school), so go ahead, we don’t understand what you are saying, you think we are fool right?”
    I never thinking they are fool, just used to ask “why, why, why, why, why”, I feel myself foolish because I always don’t understand their logic and work.
    Now, I am 24, and my psycho doctor defined me as a personal disorder with lli, he encourage me using art to express myself (he knows that I love art and creative, sadly, my fiamly don’t want me to learn art).
    I still learning how to accept myself and understanding others views. LLI is not a symptom for us to feel “smarter than others”, but for us to learn “there are different views and angles on the Earth.”

    English is not my mother language, hope you can understand what I am saying though my poor English. Thank you.

      Well said. Sorry for your struggle. I wish more research and understanding can be gained on this topic to help make life easier.

    • jess says:

      Poor guy! I think it gets better because you learn to put on the costume when needed and how to exist when you are being yourself. There are others… just find them. <3 I think LLI can be cool if you don't mind suffering all the time… jk its not that funny.

    I agree in saying that it is not cool. I am constantly living in that “WHY?” world and dontt understand people’s inability to understand the obvious. I am doing an MBA at the moment. It takes me twice as long to prepare for something (it feels) as I ask the why why why, constantly and I go into things so deep. Despite the fact that I will probably complete the degree Cum Laude, I am exhausted. I want to be like the other students who can study for an exam in two days whilst it takes me 5 days – but then I know it all almost. At the end of a days classes (during study school, which is ever 7 weeks) I am exhausted. It feels like my head is spinning. When I study, I get to a point where I feel like the info is streaming in and I sometimes approach overload….. writing about this feels tiring.
    Is anyone aware of therapy or something for LLI, which could assist one with filtering or being more efficient?

    • Ann says:

      Dear Rudolph,

      What I have found helps me is alone time where I can meditate. Not the sitting Budha like meditation but your own kind. For me: I like to meditate on concepts that I am thinking, “Why”‘so badly I get stuck like a record. I visualise 4D theories and imagine music and colours. I find then that the backlog of every why present in my brain flows freely and I can answer them. Sometimes I feel we “know” the answers to our whys but there are so many of them, so much processing of all around us going on, that we get stuck.

      I have found friends that understand and so I stick with them.

      I hope you find some peace.

      Hey Rudolph, I think there are just life skills LLI skills – I’m 37 and still learning them. BUT I think there should be a tool kit made. Maybe our web host will make a page on coping mechanisms. 😉
      – 1. Literally filter your environment, practice daily discipline on what you pay attention to
      – 2. Structure your life to focus on fewer things since you are basically unable to not deep dive on things. This is compulsive I know I’m working on it too.
      – 3. Learn to meditate and practice. I reccommend Vedic Meditation, also read Mastery which will help you be content with the simple process of becoming great at something, which is the shortcut to the end actually. In this way you will learn to focus.
      – 4. Somehow, you must “fire” non-essential stimuli, jobs, people, tasks, and especially thoughts. In One Bird at a Time, Anne Lamot describes envisioning all those little thoughts and voices (especially the mean ones) as mice running around. Visualize a jar. Pick up each mouse by the tail and put it in the jar. First, imagine there is a volume buttton on the jar and turn it up really loud – supper annoying so they are all yelling at you. NOw, turn them all down to silent. Look at the mice trying to claw out and smile at them. Now, get back to wha you were doing in the nice peace and quiet.
      – 5. Nature. Nature is incredibly healing to me and restorative.
      – 6. Find humans that understand.

      Some others:

      good luck
