What you wrote was interesting--the idea of "hyperthymic" temperament. It makes me think about what our world would be like without people of different temperaments. The question, of course, is where is the line between variation on a temperament continuum and what we might consider to be an illness--probably a question impossible to answer.

I think on a personal level, staying mindful of a balance is what is important, monitoring how functional the temperament is for you, and having a way to cope with it if it crosses that line.

I hope you find an outlet for the energy you have. I'm sure there is one for you where you can feel like you are making a positive contribution.
