1.7 CATCH 22 OF THE STUCKY BRAIN
How to permit constructive attachments while
avoiding the ones that aren't good for us? That
may be the ultimate Catch-22 for bouncing
brains who are fueled by intensity.

1.6  DANCING ON THE EDGES
Is a nose for the new wired into our genes? If so,
what happens when edge-seekers live in a world
where almost everything new has been tried?

1.5 SALIENCE SEEKERS
HUNT ATTENTIONAL PREY

Having a mind that scans like a high speed
searchlight can be handy at times -- but it
can also be a bit scary.

1.4 DOERS AND BLOWERS:
This pull between your personal poles can
be the most crazy- making part of owning
a bouncing brain.

1.3 FINDING YOUR PERSONAL PRIMES
If you can keep the balancing point in mind,
you might do a better job of juggling.

1.2 WHEN YOUR FILES ARE PILES
You know you are out of control when your
piles get so bad they're spilling on to your
mouse pad.

obsession in having so little to do with logic.
