A Competitive Nature
Metal spinning top enthusiasts can be competitive, especially since they like to compare spinning top toys and make predictions on how long they will spin before losing control.
They often compete with themselves as well, trying to better their results and beat records. They might not be interested in tournaments or other big competitions, but prefer beating their personal bests and posting their results.
They love sharing videos of their spins with a timer next to them, posting images of their times, or creating content giving their advice on creating the best tops.
A Need to Seek New Challenges
One of the most interesting traits that spinning top enthusiasts share is their need to seek out new challenges. They always want to try something new and face difficulties head-on, without hesitation.
They often don't shy away from difficult-to-find materials or difficult-to-master techniques as they become more comfortable with their favorite spin toy. They are so curious about what they can achieve that it pushes them to try new things and this is, in essence, the core of their personality.
If you look at the wide variety of spinning top challenges that are on YouTube, these types of people love to make waves and have fun! From spinning the longest to trying to get them to spin on near-impossible surfaces, challenges are what make them happy!
One of the most critical traits for spinning top enthusiasts to have is patience! It takes time to learn how to make the best top and getting it to spin for a long time is no easy feat. A person who enjoys metal spinning tops must be patient in order to learn how the top works, what materials will make it spin longer, and other details that allow them to achieve their goals.
They also need patience when learning and mastering new techniques and try not to invest a lot of money into a single top that might not work the way they want it to. This is important because it means that they won't give up after just one try and will strive to put in the time needed to achieve their goals.
Highest Levels of Concentration
Spinning top enthusiasts have a high level of mental focus that allows them to fully concentrate on what they are doing. Whether it's mastering a new technique with a favorite spinning top toy or making their spinning tops as perfect as possible, they need all their attention to detail and this commitment is something we can see in almost every enthusiast we know or meet.
These people live and breathe their enthusiasm to such a degree that it's hard not to see them as perfect examples of concentration and attention. If you want to fully understand spinning toys and how they work, you must know where to look for information, who will have the most accurate information, and how you can get it.
