To my mind the signature preference among the MBTI relating to `flow' is the only one not attributable to Jung: the J/P preference, which David Keirsey has said has more to do with closure VS open-endedness than either `judging' or `perceiving' per se.
I'm inclined to believe that those who prefer P to J would be more inclined to experience flow, but I suspect that J types can if they feel well-bounded between supposed beginnings and supposed dead-lines for any of their paint-by-numbers regions of time on their calenders, itineraries, or daily schedules.
J-ness could still entail Fi though, right (even though I'm a P type)?
Because that's all I'm joking about (being emo). I don't get situated in actions/experiences so easily. I'm not an extrovert (or rather, so into the P function that I forget everything else).
but when i'm there, it's all good. i just.. usually don't care anymore.
That's what apathy is. it's opposite flow...but sometimes can be similar.
Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?
It's not apathy necessarily. I'm slightly tongue in cheek there with the emo thing. It can be apathy. Usually it's something more serious, something I find worth paying attention to more. In the same way perhaps an INTP might get real stuck in their thoughts/Ti-like.
right...like when you have something really hard to do and as a p you procrastinate...it's overwhelming...you don't know how to get started you don't want to do it...and then the moment strikes...it's got to be done and you do it...and you're fast and efficient...it just flows...like a writer who's blocked for days and sits down to write a novel.
