What personality types tend to "google" compulsively? Types that search nonstop.

I am an ENFP an i use Google & youtube alot...

I even use Google as a dictionary. By appending any word with "define:" prefix. For which i can use any other dictionary as well. But for some reason i don't.

May be its because of the convenience of working in the same window. i.e. multi tabs. It frees from searching for the dictionary on my hard disk, waiting for it to load and then type the word for knowing its meaning.

I'll say it's quite a convenient thing to be able to just look up something whenever I want to. I used to use an encyclopaedia set for that since I was a kid, but this net searches are much quicker :)

I use Google and Wikipedia a lot. Also thefreedictionary.com ( it has hangman! ;-) ) If I don't know something, I automatically search for it.

Is this just nonsense searching like music videos or celebrity gossip garbage? I use search engines to learn more about things for fun. I enjoy knowing the nutritional facts of random foods and even about the accuracy of some movies, etc that are "based on a true story". I'm just thinking of random examples.

I just enjoy learning, if that's what this is about, that's not type related.

I Google constantly, I think it's the most amazing thing on Earth next to YouTube.

I know an ISTJ who is really snarky about telling people they need to Google things instead of asking him, and he also really loves You Tube.

So let's just say any reasonably intelligent and curious person who hangs out on the Internet.

Maybe the difference lies in *what* they Google, not *if* they Google.

Oh god.

Yesterday I somehow managed to go from searching information on a dog shampoo for my Chow Chow to searching about bioterrorism threats.

In the span of 10 minutes.

o_o

How it went, according to my search history:

"Isle of Dogs Coarse Coat Shampoo"
"shampooing very fluffy dogs"
"why chows fluffy"
"fluffy dogs disease risks"
"ticks in dogs risk"
"dogs bubonic plague flies"
"bubonic plague still exist"
"where plague exists"
"eradicated diseases labs"
"disgruntled scientists release diseases"
"bioterrorism who"
"bioterrorism where"
"likelihood bioterrorism plague"
"latest bioterrorism"
"worst diseases most painful"
"which diseases most disfiguring"
"bubonic plague religion"
"god punish with diseases"
"god not actually merciful"
"jealous god"
"christian god selfish"

....well. It was worse than I thought. o_O

If you don't know something just google it :\. I usually add what I want to know and Wikipedia next to it.
