I am the same but now since I have retired I have more time to pursue my intellectual curiosity.

I think so.
I forgot yesterday and figure that yesterday wasn't worth remembering so today I can learn more.

My intellectual curiosity is the same as it's always been, very high. Love to read, love to learn.

I hate reading on my iPad. Make my eyes worse. But I'm too lazy for the movement. Either that I'm working up to it. But these books I got are not free. I doubt they have from the library.

No. I have always been an avid reader, writer, and information hound. I just have more time and a mind free of stress and fatigue now. Life has always been about the joys of learning for me.

I never had time for intellectual curiosity before I retired - family, demanding job, etc.etc. Now I have the energy to do things. I took up new avocations after retirement and always, wherever we lived, took adult education courses of one sort or another. I feel I am much more intellectually interested - and interesting - since I retired.

I don't think I'm more intellectual since I retired. I am a tad less active because I was on my feet a good 7 hours out of the day. I'm more concerned with your lack of physical activity by just sitting and reading for that many hours every day. Yes keeping your mind stimulated is important, but so is being active. I'm going to keep my mind stimulated by concentrating on not falling on my cheeky monkeys while I teach myself how to ice skate backwards today. I think I'll go visit the political forum before I go. It's a zoo over there and very stimulating.

More intellectual? That's kind of like asking if George Clooney could become more handsome.
