    Usually if something captures my imagination it will be a large part of what occupies my mind for the (usually fairly short) while that I'm obsessed with it. For example I'll often get a bit obsessed with a certain video game and whenever I'm daydreaming (which is a lot) my thoughts are all linked to that, imagining being in that world, or imagining being a character from that world, or imagining what it would be like if real life turned into that, or imagining different trailers for that game that I could make. And then all of a sudden I'll start seeing the video game in a different light (without realizing), and that's when I know that soon I'm going to be bored of it, because that's what always happens. I think it's like me subconsciously becoming bored and trying to make it seem new or something. And then, as always, I get bored, and stop playing the game/obsessing over it.

    But maybe I'm just a nerd haha.

    I'd say I can become obsessive, yes, depending on the subject.

    A degree of obsession is inherent to being interested in something.

    Sometimes extremely so, usually tied in with how mentally/emotionally healthy I am at the time. More anxiety/depression = more and longer lasting obsessive preoccupations. I hate it at times. If I can bring my sensing abilities into the picture, I can usually regulate my focus a little better.

    But even when I'm healthy, I love researching my passions and interests to death. Usually revolving around psychology and human relationships. (Duh... look at my types)

    No. I think crossing into obsession, about anything, is generally not healthy. I like focus.
    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.

    Holy jesus god. I am definitely obsessive. Anytime I'm not obsessing over an interest or passion it usually means I'm depressed. Then I'm obsessively thinking about what is wrong with me and how I can 'fix' it... so the obsessive thinking never really ends.
