Someone who enjoys doing things on their own away from groups. Hermits are always busy with so many things they want to do on their own that they rarely make time for social gatherings.
Many have high IQ's and are bored and unchallenged in social settings. They want to do what they want to do. Uninterrupted and unbothered. Often driven and very successful in knowledge and achievements in science & arts & philosophy (think Einstein)
~ For instance hermits prefer reading a book on the beach then chugging beer at a beach party.
~ They would prefer Riding a horse in the mountains to going to a camp sing-a-long.
~ Internet classes instead of a campus.
~ Cooking a gourmet dinner for a romantic date instead of Going to a Restaurant.
~ Internet surfing instead of myspace/twitter.
