I'm just going to warn you now that this post is likely to get away from me, so sit back and enjoy the ride.
As an avid Pokémon player I recently got the Pokémon Bank app for my 3DS. This basically lets you store the creatures online, ready to deposit and withdraw whenever you need them. There's just one tiny problem with this; my completionist attitudes kicked in. See, I kind of want to store one of every single Pokémon, which means evolving them once or twice to fill in all the gaps. This also likely means owning every game in order to get all of the unique Pokémon. I wonder how long it will take me to give up on this idea. Probably not very long.
See I'm not really much of a completionist. If anything, I'm not a major fan of completing things. Especially when I write stories. My writing input drastically goes down the closer I get to the end of a story because I just want it to keep going for a little bit longer. I tend to be the same with books and other games. There will often come a point where I just get tired of something and will rush to complete it, which is a shame because it takes away from the sense of completion. Rather than being satisfied that I've finished something, I tend to just be glad that it's over.
I can have a bit of an obsessive personality, so when I do get the desire to really complete something and go all out; I really do go all out. I've spent plenty of time "grinding" as they call it, which is when you do the same thing over and over in a video game; often for experience or items. So who knows? Maybe I really am a completionist and I do a good job of suppressing my desires.
I knew this post would get away from me in the end, but I didn't know what else to write about today. How about yourself? Are you a completionist?
