It depends on how you want to look at it. There's nothing wrong with being humble, or showing humility. It you're not knowledgeable on something just say, "I don't know anything about this subject." Or something similar. Know your limits and accept them.

No. Research suggests that putting yourself down has a negative impact on your well-being, will demotivate you and cause you to think yourself of not any better than that. The repeated thought processes that will eventually wear you down and make you really believe that.

Also, this is the full definition of idiot:
1 usually offensive : a person affected with extreme mental retardation
2 a foolish or stupid person

Why would you want to call yourself such words?

If you love everyone else, why would you hate yourself? You have done no wrong to others.

Probably just a phase. I'm thinking you've done something stupid recently and it's weighing on you more-so then other stupid things you've done before (we all do stupid things, I'm not trying to sound callous).

There's a couple of things you could do to help remedy this. Think of your actions and words before you say/do them, first. This is also the most important part. For instance, think about the consequences (good or bad) and if it's worth it. "Is the juice worth the squeeze?"

Second, whatever thing it is you've done try to rectify it. Whether it's apologizing, fixing something you broke, etc. It clears the conscious and makes you feel better afterwards.

How can you be sure what others think? You can't read minds, therefore you're just basing that on assumptions. Assumptions are not accurate at all.

Also, everyone messes up once in a while, nobody's perfect.

Probe people to find out common interests. This is the easiest place to start and build rapport on. "You play video games?", "What movies do you watch?", "You enjoy comics or superheroes?" - These are the ones I've had the most success with to find some kind of common ground. I have interests in all of these and can build discussions off them. The hardest part of a conversation, or build rapport, is starting it. Once you start it, it's smooth sailing.

I am unsociable.

I can't relate to others and
am convinced i think in a completely
different method than others.

Even the people who come the closest still
don't like talking to me.

Yes, people can think whatever they want. It really doesn't matter what people think since a great deal of this is subjective. The only thing you can do about it is to improve what you do. Do what you can to learn and prove them they're wrong.

Of course it is. Everyone thinks like that from time to time. Sometimes you make mistakes, and lots of them, but that's just being human. As long as you aren't beating yourself up to bad and constantly calling yourself an idiot it's good to be honest with yourself, acknowledge the stupid, and improve.

It doesn't hurt to know your limitations either, as long as that doesn't stop you from achieving what you want in life. I'm no rocket scientist, but I still achieve whatever I set out to do eventually. I realize I might have to do things differently then boy genius who can take the direct route, but I can still do anything he can, just a little slower, so I know I need to account for that.

Same could be said physically. If you acknowledge that you aren't Brutus the warrior and you need to move a refrigerator you can realize that.

A) You need to work out
B) You can use other things to compensate like tools, your brain, your social skills etc...

Technically, it does matter what people think. You would lower your standards if you were to stop caring what others thought of you.

You don't know some of the utter stupidity that has gone on. And i don't want to revive this old thread, i just thought it would be funny to call someone an idiot in an ethical way. Since he doesn't care it doesn't matter.
