I do kinda like people 1, but I adore silence. I’m not the type of person who enjoys background noise, I find it incredibly distracting. Other writers have “writing playlists,” I don’t understand the concept.
This becomes fun when I’m attempting to concentrate on something in a group setting, especially with people who process vocally. Every word, every question, every suggestion derails my thought process and sends me back to step one. There are time where I’ll literally reach out to a collaborator, place my hand on their shoulder, and say, “Just give me a minute, please be quiet 2.”
This comic depicts my ideal situation. Silence and fresh coffee. Pure joy.
