Superior Person's Tuesday!

Hyperhedonia, n. A condition in which abnormally heightened pleasure is derived from participation in activities which are intrinsically tedious and uninteresting.

Of course, it helps if you're really good at said activities.

For a case study near you, see any golfer.

Each Tuesday, we’ll offer up a Superior Word for the edification of our Superior Readers, via the volumes of the inimitable Peter Bowler. You can purchase all or any of the four Superior Person’s Books of Words from the Godine website.  Hyperhedonia appears in the Second.
