    People who are alone on this world. People are not evil without a motive. They are in need of a tasty source of food to bring them out of the awfulness that is reality. I do it too. We eat fir comfort, maybe i went a bit too far when i ate a tub of ice cream and a wjole pound bag if chips in one sitting. I don't know how i am still skinmy

    Part of what you described sounds a bit like mirroring. (The part where you said you tend to act like the person with whom you're talking.) I think we all do this, in some form, whether we're aware of it or not. When we're talking to someone, we sometimes unconsciously mirror that person's body language, mannerisms, or speech. The idea is that doing so will help us build a rapport with the other person.

    I think some people are more disposed to mirroring than others. Maybe you're one of the people who is more disposed to it?

    Anyway, it doesn't mean you're insane. Just don't lose sight of the person you are when no one else is around.

    @Mychemicalkilljoy

    If you wonder if you're insane, it's a pretty reliable sign that you're not. I think everyone has wondered this at some point in their life.

    Acting different with each person and like the person you're talking with is actually a good thing to some degree. Everyone does it, just in differing amounts. There are studies by social psychologists about this and how it affects communication and perception of each other, as well as liking and persuasion. Observe with interest rather than fear.

    Your prophecies which come true are probably just intuition, mostly Ni as someone already pointed out. I've had very extreme ones too even though I'm mainly an Ne-Ti type.

    You're noticing things about yourself that you don't fully understand, and when we don't understand something affecting us directly, the natural response is fear. It will take time to understand the things you notice. Practice accepting the things you notice, and smile about them because they keep you from being exactly like everyone else. That would be boring.

    Yes, I think you are simply engaging in mirroring using a Feeling function (probably Fe) and intuition (probably Ni). Nothing to be concerned about as long as you keep in mind and develop a good sense of self. And psychic boundaries.

    Just to help out with this mirroring thing. Someone might be insane for example if someone asked them how work was and then the person responded with extreme anger and started screaming for help.

    When our mirroring is messed up we think that dangerous people are nice and good people bad.

    This is also why drugs are bad.

    Of course, mirroring is also the primary mechanism by which a psychopath can hack into our psyche or fall in by way of Trojan horse.

    Mirroring is a thing that can be learned and is not necessarily as genetic as much as environment for most people.


    But to be entirely fair, most psychopaths are actually quite naive because no one knows for sure how mirroring works both from the inside and outside.

    We can only really approach this thing as if it were a novely for the idea of mirroring as a neurological phenomena is relatively new and from the outside it's a matter of intuition and experience.

    But mirroring is deep and someone witha deep intuition will know when someone is messing with them, or mimicking them...but go ahead and experiment.

    Try sitting, looking, and doing the same things the other person is but inverted like a mirror and please do let us know how it goes.
