    I think you being an E2 might be part of it. Your natural tendency to try to 'support' other people might be why you adjust your behavior to mirror them.

    Ohh... Wait...what are psychic boundaries?

    Hm that could be it...

    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference."

    Oh you know, not being completely in everyone's heads and having their thoughts and feelings be in yours. Controlling your empathic tendencies if you have them, which I expect you do.

    Unless you forgot to mention that you just murdered someone and you're now bathing in their blood, I'm going to vote "no" on the insanity ballot. I use to mirror others actions but that was because I was an insecure teenager who didn't know how to act or respond to people.

    As for the prophetic stuff, I've been there as well. It's been said before but I really believe it's an intuitive function. You're not alone and you're probably not crazy.

    Sanity is the lowest common denominator. Any person deviating too far from the lowest common denominator is considered insane.

    And we have lots of "insane" in this world, does that make those people sane?

    Unless you go too far from this lowest common denominator with the people you frequent with, the answer is no.
