I am aggressively anti superstitious. I have reasons for this that I may go into when and if this gets a few responses, but my question is this. Is it possible that being as aggressively anti superstitious as I am be a neurodivergent trait? I feel like so many people around me are into astrology, they all have favorite numbers, they believe in jinxes, I could go on and on but I think you get the drift. I have two thoughts on this 1) my deep antipathy towards superstition is in itself a neurodivergent trait, or 2) this is a trait that I just never developed for whatever reason.

I am totally anti- superstitious.....just not aggressively. I will not, however allow it to be anywhere around me & it has no place in my life. I know exactly where my beliefs on this issue come from.

Whether your "aggressivly" response is neurodivergent would depend on if you respond to other things in a similar way.
Usually a neurodivergent response isn't limited to only one is usually a total way of perceiving everything in your life & how you respond to it
