comment Is the mathematician's activity psychologically healthy?
Your answer is about what I call the concentration of "local type", there is also an equivalent for the "global type". Anyway, the mathematician's activity seems more perverse that we believe : in general, without an hyper-commitment of our mental and our life, it seems not possible to be creative and productive.

If this behavior is characteristic of a slight neurosis, it may not be a good idea to develop it into a serious one, isn't it ?

But my point is also that mathematics promote and develop particularly this behavior, without limit, because contrarily to others domains, the mathematicians access easily to infinite areas !

Thank you for your answer. I'm agree with you on the point that mathematics attract people predisposed to this behavior.
