    go nonlinear on me

    Hi,

    1) The sentence is "My mentor has a tendency to go nonlinear on me when I'm deliberately picturing myself as weak and limited by who I am".

    what does "to go nonlinear on me" mean?

    2) what does "to take a walk on the wild side" mean? not be on the right track?

    3) pls explain this sentence: "it is not intellectual justifications of my own authority".

    thank you!

    Re: go nonlinear on me

    "To take a walk on the wild side" means to do something completely out of character. For example, if you're usually a non-drinker, your friend might invite you to "take a walk on the wild side" and go to the bar (or pub) with him and have a beer or two.
