I'll try to make a less flippant response than I did before.

Like most people I know who do what I do, whether in my day job(s) or in photography or other creative pursuits, I do wonder if certain tendencies are gifts or curses. I don't know when I started having to worry about that but probably ever since I was forced to sit still in kindergarten If your goal in life as one of "our" kind of people is just to fit in, then you'll drive yourself mad. Embrace your differences of perspective, try not to freak people out, and be happy that artistic pursuits are a good outlet for you! Some people don't need that like bread and water... pity them and not yourself
