Excellent post, Chuck! After all these years I thought I was going literally mad, until reading this blog post. I would be somewhat embarrassed to admit to a few of these character traits... daydream, observe, thrive in solitude, people watch, connect dots.... are you watching over my shoulder when I'm not looking? But maybe it is for my future self to harness these for solving more interesting problems, like how to ensure privacy and security for big data.

I can relate too many of the items you listed.
Some time my best idea's and solutions come out
of the blue at the strangest moments in time. Sometimes I will tell my boss let me reflect on the issue and the next day, I will have epiphany with a conclusion and a proposed solution to the issue.

I feel my wisdoms and creativity comes from my diversifications of many life experiences.
I play music, I have traveled, I have played many sports, I love people and culture, I love the social interaction between people and life stories,
And I love to experience nature.

    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
