You have task-oriented and object-oriented hobbies or interests. You are so passionate about your work or your hobbies that you could talk about them for hours on end, never seeming to lose interest.
There are many people on this great planet of our's. Each person has a very different personality from the next person. Our differences allow us each to contribute in our own way to society and its purpose. We all specialize in different areas, and the world wouldn't be what it is without each person making their useful contributions.
Many people used to naturally segregate from the rest of the population. People who were socially inept tended to keep to themselves. They farmed or operated family-run businesses for survival. They handed down their trade to the next offspring who took over the family business once their parents were too old to operate it any longer. People who were disabled or mentally ill or who had learning disabilities were institutionalized or put into special schools or special jobs.
