    When this happens to me, nine times out of ten, I can recall the dream and the events that took place prior to and after the déjà vu scenario - maybe this has to do with my ability to recall my dreams. So as I suspected, maybe this is an Ni thing in that maybe different types experience different types of déjà vu and for different reasons.
    Well, there are lots of different sorts of déjà vu. The traditional one is brain-misfiring. There's the sort when I remember things from dreams, too, but I don't think this is actual déjà vu, even though it seems like it.

    Hmm. . . that's what I'm trying to discuss.

    In other words, I have a dream about a future event taking place, but that event is forgotten when I wake. Then, usually during the same day, that event takes place, I feel an odd sensation of being in the same event prior (déjà vu), then I recall the dream where it took place before.

    But yeah, I imagine there are different sorts. But now I understand how it occurs, which has bothered me for a very long time.

    I get deja vu for a few "events" repeatedly (i.e. when it happens, it's happened with the same "moment" before, if that makes any sense... there are only a handful of "moments" that I "re-live" in deja vu-ness.)

    Is it just not properly myelinated brain links? The electrical message jumps ship and follows a different path?

    I also repeatedly have a collection of words that I find on the tip of my tongue but often just can't find in my brain.

    déjà vu is the connection of pre consious thought that exists in non traceable fragments of our minds. Or it is psychic phenomena. Or possibly remenants of a past life.

    I assume you saw my "untrustworthy memory" post, but just in case...

    Because we are in the present, post-dream and post-deja-vu, and you're recalling both: the dream you remember probably never happened. It was a construction in your mind to "make sense" (read: confuse you) of the double-memory. The only alternatives are that a: You're having hallucinations based on your dreams, or b: You are clairvoyant, and must be kidnapped by the government.

    I see what you are saying, honestly. However, in my case, I don't believe it.

    I know the dreams took place because the series of events before and after - within the dream - become very clear to me. Again, through a lot of practice and a really good memory, I'm able to remember a large portion of my dreams if I take the time to review them - I used to wake up every morning, sit up in bed, search my minds eye, and write down my dreams many years ago.

    With that said, I still believe that this is simply Ni making connections during the dream that, on occasion, come true, in detail, during the following day or two. Additionally, I think this same thing is what makes some people think they are psychic.
