Off I trotted to the Freud Museum to listen to the talk. To my dismay the whole paper was read out, in full. When I run residencies I know which kid is likely to be super creative by the way they walk through a door, they bounce in, they are disruptive, they can't sit still, they are louder than the rest, they do a drawing, it's always fantastic, then they bounce off as if I never existed.
Many 'creatives' have an element of that and find it difficult to sit still, but we just have an amplified reaction to a problem that anyone would have. Listening to a flat delivery of a dense piece of research is uninteresting.
