Why do people like collecting?

I understand the reward system of the brain but I'm talking about why this activity is rewarding

I collected stamps in my teens. In wanted to be in all of those wonderful places. I had no internet and rarely saw them on TV.

[@542305,Darkcosmos] I didn't know you were a philatelist, someone on here has recently been posting stamps of Egypt

It gives me reason to say "I sure collected a lot of seashells" 😂
Also I like showing my collection off.
Jackaloftheazuresand · 26-30, M
[@647049,Seashell] So a status among others is what you think is behind it

It gives people something to do, I guess.
Jackaloftheazuresand · 26-30, M
[@689734,maryannspring] That seems like contentment but what about the rush?
hertoy · 61-69, M
Some collections can appreciate nicely
Jackaloftheazuresand · 26-30, M
[@402576,hertoy] That is certainly one aspect of it but that is more about the money than the collection

[@1149,MrBrownstone] No joy in easy collections then?
MrBrownstone · 41-45, M
[@383281,Jackaloftheazuresand] Thr hunt in getting all of the items you collect.
