From the first moment you hid your test paper from a nosy fellow student, left the gossiping lunch hall to go and do something more productive, or accidentally offended that kid who wanted help with their homework (could they really be that slow on the uptake?!), you knew you needed a challenge.
Some people might turn to group activities or sports to relax and have fun, but you don’t see the point in an activity unless it is focused on a goal. Many a friendly get-together has turned into a fast-paced, regimented competition thanks to you.
The conversations you have at work are more rewarding to you than the chit chat you suffer through on weekends, and you are happier when your mind is on fire.
There was a brief episode when you had to take a few days away from the workplace, and were forced to ‘take it easy’, that you hope never to repeat.
