Same. And for me, the horrendous tends in the direction of chest-beating alpha-verbal, with heavy emphasis on looking down at others.
But, of course, it doesn't seem/feel that way in the cloud of relative self-righteousness. It seems more as though doing others a favor. Not a good place.

I'd have to leave this as well, because I can definitely get obsessive about it.
I mostly connect “normalcy” to much younger days, long before devices that increased contact with others. I really didn't need to know what others thought – or, worse yet, how what they called thought was, well... basically not more than a nanometre above parroting what they imagined improved their standing relative to being “with it”. Like with “memes”, these days. Or in times past, phrases from SNL. And so on.
