I appreciate this article because it makes these emotional problems – and ways to prevent and deal with them – visible and dispels the impression that we're all rational, calculating evaluators, all of the time. I recall 2 cases in the EA community of people who I chatted with online in the last year who seemed (disclaimer: by my amateurish reasoning for their extreme behaviour) to experience mania and/or psychosis at a point.
