    I have 1000's of bookmarks, and an extensive bookmarking system. I wouldn't say I am obsessive, but I search everyday.

    INTPs usually have already read one article or two about pretty much every subject people may talk about. I think INTPs are the wikipedia rats of mbti. Sometimes it is easy to forget what we were trying to learn about in first place.
    Google...perhaps.

    I think that Ni or Ne dominant types would be the most obsessed. Ns come first, because we're not only obsessed with absorbing the information, we're also interested in seeing all the connections between what we're looking at and other subjects.

    There are certainly Se or Si dominant people who use Google heavily, but I don't think they use it in quite the same way, nor are they as consistent in being heavy users.

    ADHD and/or OCD
    Not a Myers Briggs thing at all, IMHO.

    I think INTPs would be the most compulsive Googlers. My INTP brother certainly is one.

    Most mornings I wake up and open my laptop and see that I've got like 30 tabs going, and I'm like . So I go through getting rid of all the wonders of the day before that I don't really care about anymore. Some things remain in tabs if I keep an interest in them and have had a chance to fully investigate. It's only 1:30 in the afternoon so I only have 9 tabs open. Guaranteed after work I'll be a swagbucking fool over everything.

    Wow, lol. I always wondered who actually needed to use the bookmarking tools to organize them in directories and sub-directories. SO IT'S BECAUSE OF PEOPLE LIKE YOU!
