    When i get a notification, i feel the need to look at it immediately. This is especially if it makes noise on my phone or it's a facebook notification or primary email. I don't feel like i need more, i just need to know what it is as soon as possible.

    I can't relate a lot to it but I remember one time I had 23 notifications during when I joined

    It can be fun to see who posted but then other times I'm like " OK let's see " at times.

    Absolutely normal, they’re designed to give you a micro-dopamine hit and be addictive. All social media is deliberately designed to keep people on it as much as possible and notifications are a great way of pulling in their attention.
