Just as the title says.

And I don't mean in a violent against you sort of thing, but... more like, always believing someone is trying to undermine you all the time and discriminate against you. Feeling as if you're always being persecuted against and no one is doing work, except for yourself.

Another word I'm trying to remember is a word for being told to do what you already know. Such as: "Don't put your hand on a hot stove."

I remember in my linguistics class there were words for these sort of things. Hopefully you can all help me out. Thanks! And I'm glad to be a new member here Emotion: smile

Hi, kessel, thanks for joining us. Welcome to English Forums.

Are you thinking of "paranoid"? (Just because you're not paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you.)

I can't put my finger on the other one OUCH!

Best wishes, - A.

Don't touch the hot stove: Perhpas obviating the obvious, or "duh" (actually spelled d'oh" in the animated TV series.

You don't want "self-evident" for the hot stove thing, do you?

Hi,

Another word I'm trying to remember is a word for being told to do what you already know. Such as: "Don't put your hand on a hot stove."

If someone irritates me by saying this to me, I might say 'Don't state the obvious!'
