Would you be surprised to discover that your sense of adventure affects the way you work?  According to this write-up at Forbes, psychologist Marvin Zuckerman has studied what he termed “stimulation levels” since the 1960s with a particular interest in subjects drawn to new experiences and risk-taking behaviors.  This may explain why some people are more productive in quiet environments while others thrive in noisy cafes, or how some of us embrace newer technologies while others prefer to stick with what they know.
