Chamberlain (!): Goethe dagegen bekennt von sich selber, er sei „von Natur nachdenklich“, ihm habe die Vorsehung „eine konversierende Gabe nicht verliehen“, und in Gesellschaft wisse er „nur didaktisch und dogmatisch“ zu verfahren; ja, es sei ihm „eine böse Manier“ eigen, durch welche „er sich manche Person entfremdet, andere zu Feinden gemacht habe“.

Hannah Arendt interview, "the best conversation I have ever had" (Günter Gaus). - Min 25:30: about intellectual giftedness, "a certain kind of alienation among human beings"; her shame of realizing her alienness so late. Min 30:00: Arendt about the only shock she had in 1933: that volontary "Gleichschaltung" was "the rule among intellectuals, and among the others not". - The latter phenomena might be explained by the phenotype concept of ASD.
"Intuitions" is what NTs argue with, Gaus wants them to adapt to the flawed methods of their opponents and win those with the conventional morality.
