Re: [IP] highs and lows - how do you feel?
I have *somewhat* seen the same, though I think it's
more a matter of noticing distinct stages now where I
didn't before (In My Case).
For example, I program for a living and I've noticed
the following trends to my mental acumen:
0-40 : Turnip Brain
40-60 : Distracted, but active... wild tangential
thought processes firing off at light speed.
60-90 : THE ZONE. (a.k.a. Overclock Mode) I can
learn a new programming language I've never seen
anything like, and use it to write a module to speak
cantonesse to a dishwasher and get it to dance a waltz
in under 10 minutes.
90-150 : Standard Opperating Frequency. I can crack
out code with the best of 'em, but nothing suprisingly
150-190 : Disinterrested. Gimme some cartoons.
190+ : Depending how long I've been here, anywhere
between the previous stage, and "JUST SHUT UP AND LEAVE
