    i was chatting with my work mates about mental work and being tired, and i realised im the odd one out.
    they all said (and since then everyone i ask) that if they are doing something that is mentally draining, they feel physically tired. so if they are studying for test, or concentrating hard about something, they would feel physically tired, as though they had dome phyisical work. but just without the muscle soreness.

    i dont experience this at all. mental exertion doesnt make me tired at all, only physical exertion does. and at 42 i only just learnt that im the odd one out.

    is this weird? why am i like this?

    Read recently that grand chess masters burn up to 6000 calories a day while under the stress of competing while sitting down. Stress apparently burns calories. So don't worry about it, you’re just too laid back.


    All that belongs to human understanding, in this deep ignorance and obscurity, is to be skeptical, or at least cautious; and not to admit of any hypothesis, whatsoever; much less, of any which is supported by no appearance of probability...Hume
