Posts Tagged ‘Nerds’

Because of our mutant powers of obsession, it’s my guess that a lot of nerds suffer from addiction.  Nerds get caught up in minutiae, because there is a tremendous and fulfilling sense of control in understanding every single detail of a thing more than any other living creature.  But we also tend to have a very active internal monologue (in some cases, dialog).  These are some delightful ingredients — mixed with a bit of genetic predisposition — for overdoing things that make us feel good in the moment.
