I know that every so often I'll find a topic (most recently antisocial personality disorder in the medical field, of all things), and start researching said topic intensely - day and night - for a certain period of time. Usually it lasts about three weeks or so, and by the end of it I'm usually very knowledgable about the topic (although usually it doesn't matter because the topics generally have no real application). Occasionally I'll compile the fruit of my research in a (as described by someone else) "term-paper-like" composition, that's generally 10 pages or so. In any case, I've been wondering if any other NTs have experienced similar phases. Other types are more than welcome to contribute as well, I'd just assumed that if anyone would relate, it'd be NTs.
