    Profound words

    This isn't really a game (except in my mind) but sometimes I like to seek out new and obscure words with profound meaning, so really this is just for me, but...

    Malu:
    - noun

    The sudden experience of feeling constricted, inferior and awkward around people of higher status.



    So yh, that was fun for me. If anybody else enjoys these kinds of things then feel free to post any words that carry a lot of meaning for you. And if not, I'll keep putting random words on here anyway.

    Pâro
    *noun
    The feeling that no matter what you do is always somehow wrong—that any attempt to make your way comfortably through the world will only end up crossing some invisible taboo—as if there’s some obvious way forward that everybody else can see but you, each of them leaning back in their chair and calling out helpfully, "colder, colder, colder".

    Kairosclerosis

    *noun
    The moment you realize that you’re currently happy—consciously trying to savor the feeling—which prompts your intellect to identify it, pick it apart and put it in context, where it will slowly dissolve until it’s little more than an aftertaste.
