IF you commute during rush hour and can manage just fine with a book or the occasional device-burrowing, carry on.
IF you use headphones and you understand the need for an increased awareness of your surroundings, carry on.
IF you wear a hood at all times outdoors and understand that this need increases about twofold, carry on.
IF you feel the need to wear headphones AND a hood in public, you should reconsider leaving the house. You clearly have a stimuli issue. Sensory deprivation may be in order; think about switching to some kind of mobile isolation unit to get you to and from work, ideally painted brightly, with flags.
OR just move away to someplace where you’re not surrounded by eight million people.
