To start of with, I'd say that we all as starcraft players have a need of getting mentally stimulated and that quite a lot. More so I'd guess than most other kinds of people which is why I think this is a good place to post this topic.
I have a hard time writing about this and formulating it into a problem and what solutions might be had. There has always been a thought that I need this kind of stimulation much of the time but I only thought of it as something good and just recently I've started thinking that it actually might be a problem and especially might become one in maybe 10 years.
Having lead a life of often being in front of the computer always thinking, considering, gathering information of issues around the world. Trying to solve starcraft problems, poker problems, watching a series or a movie and just having to play a flash game or browsing the web in the meantime or looking at 3 streams on TL constantly while browsing around because if not there is just not enough to make you feel content. I think many people feel like this these days, the human mind is made to make you satisfy it with information.
I feel that I have a big need to always get mental stimulation, it is difficult to go out just to take a walk to just relax in a manner I need music or a podcast to keep me busy and stimulated. Without this there is I would not call it stress but you just feel you are being unproductive with your time. A reason why starcraft is so good is that it just keeps you from thinking about anything else you just cannot do anything else at the same time.
Just to add the life I lead is a very happy one, have many friends a gf and all I could wish for but the thought of needing to so to say know everything at all times is quite bothersome.
Felt that I had to get this out and I've been considering whether to write and post it or not for quite a few days, sorry if it's not for this forums.
Anyone else here with the issue of needing this stimulus all the time and find starcraft to be one of the things which is good at it?
Any tips how to possibly decrease the need for this?
Or just any general thoughts on the topic at hand, I'd really love to hear your opinions and I'm sorry the post is as long as it is. I'm certain there are some aspects I forgot about that I meant to write too might add them later if I can remember them.
Thank you all for reading!
