I have noticed some things about writers that set us apart, or rather can serve to mark us out from the general population. There are some personality traits and habits that seem more common, more prevalent, for example. It seems to me that writers tend to be at least slightly more intelligent than average. They also tend to be more reflective and have a stronger tendency to introspect. I think writers often tend to overanalyze things as well, and hesitate and doubt and rethink before taking action. I was curious to see what observations and insights that other writers may have picked up on as well, regarding ourselves. In addition, I have noticed there are some similarities with other types, such as scientists, but some quirky differences too, like in mindset and personality types and such. This is speaking in general terms of course, not that a writer must be more self-involved mentally, but traits like that do seem to be more common amongst us.
