Eric G. Donahue Mars 2009, Le Panoptique http://www.lepanoptique.com/dev/page-article.php? id=142&theme=sciences&PHPSESSID=a4a95af0376599f177f36d72 20433622 http://www.flickr.com/photos/76195812@N00/777675231/ Tuesday, March 24, 2009
  • Obsessive Passion Those individuals feel like they cannot help but to engage in the activity they love due to the internal forces that control them. Eventually, the passionate activity takes disproportionate importance and interferes with other aspects and activities of the person’s life. As a consequence, obsessive passion has been related to negative emotions (e.g., anxiety, shame) and feelings of guilt, poor concentration, rumination (i.e., difficulty stopping thinking about the activity), and rigid task engagement.
