Maybe I’m just strange, or shall I say idiosyncratic?
I consider 50 as good a 1. Kind of a 0=infinity thing. Not that I ever give one and have given 50.
It is as easy to give 50 as it is 1 so I play a bit with numbers. I like odd numbers (don’t know why) and 49 is one of my favorites. I give 49 if I really like something and 50 if I just want to get done and it was good.
I never consciously look for how many claps I get. I rely more on comments and highlights to tell me how I am doing. But I clap if I get to the end of a post, and fail to comment often, and highlight less than I should. OOPS!
I clap all over the spectrum and it often just depends on my mood.

I have no desire to be a nonconformist or antisocial (I love people on my own terms), but my psychology is what it is.
