    OH I SO DO AND IT CAN BE A CURSE!!!

    I have a serious problem with what boarders on hoarding, now and again when I have a massive clear out I'll be able to look at and precisely label "phases" or "fads" I've gone through and clear the material from that time, ie martial arts, the seventies, strategy games (both board games and computer games), different schools of thought in psychology, philosophy, anthology, genre fiction, music, even sort of or known topic.

    The terrible thing is that in some ways I do this with people too, if someone appears to be way more knowledgeable about a given topic than me I'll befriend them and really want to spend lots and lots of time with them but then when I feel nothing really new is to be gleaned from them I'll lose interest.

    I do this but my husband does it even more. Then again, he is more NT than NF in a lot of ways and this is one of them. Because of this, I use him for a lot of my research. Not knowledge, more of comparison shopping and reviews. Who wouldn't want a spread sheet of vacuum comparisons when the old one is a goner?
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I do this all the time. Life isn't fun without an obsession to research.
    I really like cats and food.

    Did you watch the Jim Fallon interviews?
    I found the Martha Stout book lacking in depth and VERY biased (weak F).

    I usually don't compile the knowledge. I keep it in my head.
