I am a natural researcher and that is what drives my love for genealogy. When I search online for a specific medical issue I can get bored quickly reading the medical jargon. If I have to open a new tab to find the definition of a word, I will quickly just give up on the info and look for something in a more simplified explanation. I prefer reading something that gets to the point and is easy to understand. If something goes on for too long, it loses my attention.

I love genealogy too, Bre! My attention span is short, though, and I find myself going down rabbit trails because I find a bit of historical information that fascinates me and the "genealogy" part of my research gets abandoned! I like for medical articles to be to-the-point and if there's too much medical terminology with no definition, I'm off to something else. What I love about Diabetic Connect is that most of the information members write about is pretty succinct.

I appreciate the pithy summary … but do enjoy getting into the weeds with the full scientific details

I used to be a extremely shy person and getting a word out of me was worse than pulling teeth. Not so much shy anymore. I finally found my voice and use it often. If a conversation drags on and on, my attention drifts. The same with long winded blogs or messages.

I am not very good at getting to the point, but I do try to make it understandable for sure. I get you. Unless I have a huge amount of time I can spend, looking up definitions of words can be a huge rabbit hole I don't care to venture into. There are some that I have to look up because it's the crux of the research, but I don't speak "legaleeze" or "mediceeze". Shoot, I don't speak English sometimes. LOL
