Natural buzz when listening to people explain things

Sometimes when people are explaining things to me or when they are teaching me I get a slight tingling sensation in my entire head. I'd definitely compare it to a mild buzz from a drug of some kind. It feels so good yet so mild and unobtrusive that if you could easily and regularly reproduce it from taking a drug without any negative side effects it would surely be a very popular drug.

The first time I noticed it I was in kindergarten. It was a Montesorri preschool in Durham, NC where I was born. A female classmate of mine was demonstrating how to assemble or use some sort of toy. I believe it was puzzle like. She was speaking about it while she did it and explaining very well the steps you take, in what order and how to complete each step. I remember getting the tingling feeling and noticing it and suddenly becoming less interested in what she was showing me in the foreground and more interested in the buzz that started in the back of my head and slowly consumed my entire head.

Today I most often notice the buzz at work. I work in tech support and often have to listen to customers explain their computer network/servers/internet services and environment in detail. Sometimes when they explain it the right way I will get the buzz. I love it but it never lasts more than a minute or so. The fact that it never lasts more than a minute I think makes it more enjoyable too. Knowing that I only will get to enjoy it for a minute or so makes me concentrate on it more and makes it more special.

Sometimes I try to explain it to friends but no one I've ever explained it to has ever been familiar with anything like it. I think it's really odd that it is a specific feeling that I only get during really specific interactions with other people. I wonder if I've learned to expect it or create the feeling around those specific interactions because I first felt it under that type of interaction. Who knows?

holy shit, i feel the same

holy shit, i feel the same way, i even listen to like obscure tutorials on youtube and stuff just to listen to someone like explain how to best utilize microsoft anayltics or something, and whenever i listen to bob ross the joy of painting i get the same feeling, but its only when a person knows the subject well, and has like a monotone voice sort of, idk. its hard to explain, but i completely understand what you are saying. is there a word for that sensation?

its just when someone is

its just when someone is expliaining in detailed steps, in a low voice, not low but quiet and purposeful, gentle almost, and they are very thorough, i get lost in the feeling. so glad to find someone else like that

"but its only when a person

"but its only when a person knows the subject well, and has like a monotone voice sort of, idk."

oh good point. That's true with me too! if they have a very monotone voice, a very calm or well thought out voice it makes a big difference. I get it more in those situations. NUTS! we are not alone ;-) How did you find this post? google? I just put this site up recently lol

I get that all the time. Sometimes I call those support numbers and fake a problem just to listen to them. Or I have them repeat things. I love the feeling. Kind of addicted.

Wow, I get this feeling also and I'm surprised I found this. I've been searching for videos online that will produce this feeling.
