Welcome to ATS. I'm relatively new myself.
And I'm also what they call a "slider". They have done studies on people like us-- who make lights flicker or go out completely. I'll dig them
up and link to them. I can put out lights, etc., mostly when I'm upset. For example, the last presidential election. As the numbers were coming
in, I had a night class to attend, so I was already pretty upset by those numbers as I walked up to the campus building. Each light I passed under
flickered and blinked out. After about five, I began to feel self-conscious and looked around me to see if people were noticing.
Anyway, when extremely upset about something, I've also completely stopped my car-- electrical system. Fine later. Also, my computer. Also fine
later. You get the idea. I'll see what I can dig up. I've been interested in this phenomenon myself for some time, for obvious reasons.
Edit to add: I have also never been able to wear a watch, beginning when I was a child. Inside five minutes, they stop dead. How about you?
