Do you geek out a lot or do you keep it under control ?

So I am good about keeping it under the wraps until someone starts to talk about something I like, then I can't help but geek out

I had a nerdgasm when I saw the Fallout 4 trailer for the first time. I also get hyped for most games I am looking forward too, obviously.

I never really do those things in public though, that is when I actually do go out.

I had to spend of number of years trying very hard to not geek out. I did it so successfully that I worry that I lost the ability...

I did manage to pick up "being a critic" in that time though, and I reckon I have a lot more fun critiquing stuff than I did geeking out about it. Although, I may have a different understanding of geeking out than my contemporaries. Would critiquing be considered as geeking out?

Depends what it is really. I generally don't get hyped for upcoming anime or most films but there are a few things close to my heart. For instance, right now I'm so unbelievably hyped for Fallout 4 (favourite game series ever) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

I keep mine under control.


Until someone with the same interest starts talking to me, then it's party time for my geekiness.

That would depend on whether you do it to be contrarian or out of genuine interest. I'll talk at length about technical systems to anybody who'll listen, ...and many people that won't... like my poor boss. It's not always positive. I'll pick things to pieces, but it's still basically the same thing as "geeking out."

On the topic more broadly, if it's of trivial import I see little reason to "keep it under control." If you expend all your willpower on repressing trivial things, how do you find the willpower to make decisions that really matter?

I, personally, critique out of genuine interest, and mostly about positive things. "I really like the cinematography in that scene because _____" "I found that character really interesting because _____" "If they had done ____ like so, I would have enjoyed it more". I always get more enjoyment out of media by looking deeper into it.

When I put it like that, I can see the similarities between geeking out and critiquing now... Shiny.

I always found the willpower is something to be trained: Using it more frequently, "training it" so to speak, should make it easier to use in more difficult situations. That may just be a personal thing, however.
