I have had several obsessions, but some of them I have obsessed over more than others.

For example...My previous obsession with serial killers was a more stronger obsession that my previous bird obsession.

What has been your most obsessive obsession?

The periodic table. When I was in grade school and other kids were reading adorable little books about puppies and kittens, I was checking out from the library books on Cobalt and Zinc.

Serial killers for me too (what's wrong with us?). And cannibalism, with some overlap to the serial killer obsession. Also Aleister Crowley, and esoterica in general.

I was obsessed with serial killers after reading the book "Mind Hunter", but it only lasted a few days, to my great relief.

Dmitri Shostakovich From age 13 or 14 through 20 or 21. Far enough that I was able to use it for a University dissertation, before finally burning out. :D

Criminals and crime (not just serial killers)
Ham radio & SWL
Firearms
Books
Woodworking
Pirates


When I get interested in anything, I read EVERYTHING I can find, print off page after page from the internet, buy books & etc. For instance, I saw a very young girl on PBS playing a dulcimer and she was very good. She said it was simple to play, so I decided I wanted one. I researched them, checked out ALL the books the library had that mentioned them, bought every book I could find and went to every website I could find about them, and decided I would build one. I had to buy and make a lot of special tools and jigs to do it. I built one, in fact the first one I ever held in my hands was the one I made. After all that, the reading and money and work, I played around with it for a few weeks, learned a few songs and hung it up over my chair where it is today. Then I found something else to be obsessed with...

Most obsessive, uh maybe Tim Burton because I managed to annoy my parents with that one. I'm very obsessive with the internet too.

The ones I consider most obsessive are the ones that keep cropping back up since childhood....

reading
rocks
learning stuff(changes topic but same thrill of learning)
witchs(became an obsession with learning about herbilism not "magic"
furry stuff(animals and tactile fur lust...no,I'm not a "furry")
nature(being in it and learning about it)
