    Now, that which is not infinite, but merely very extremely large: that's impressive.

    It's illogical I know, but true for me.

    Eternity makes me freak out. I don't think about it.

    ...and yet, as far as we can tell, eternity surrounds us in time, and infinity in space. We have never lived within the bounds of the finite, except in the sense that our perception is limited.

    Dimensional "created" space I can handle. That includes multiple branes and alternate universes. What I can't handle is "eternity", something without time limit. Our present universe, as old as it is, still had a genesis, and will have a terminus long after we're gone.

    When the wheels fall off of the concept of limitations, I can't handle it. I have to have parameters, even if those parameters are wide-ranging or relative to another position other than mine. Eternity is within the experience of no one and therefore undefinable. I like abstractions fine, but things that refuse all human conceptual definition make my nervous system hum like a high-tension power line. I hate it.

    Some stuff from when i was a kid.
    Early age-3-7
    -Used to suck at my bed lining, all night long, so every mornings the corners where all wet.
    -With the food I made small perfectly circular balls under my tongue that i hid under my plate, these i arranged in some way or the other, falling asleep while doing this at the table, sometimes hitting my head in the table in the process.
    -Always falling and hurting myself, cronically, according to my mother. I dont remember.

    Age 7-15
    -My brothers where scared of being alone and when it was dark, I was the opposite. Used to go to many of these 'hunted' houses where people had seen ghosts(at least claimed they had) alone in the night hoping to see them. But did not. Used to always imagine that there where all sorts of creatures and stuff watching me when i walked alone in the woods. Think I was more fascinated then scared.
    -Started reading fantasy books at about 13-14. When i started a big fantasy book, i usually don't let it down until it is finished. Sometimes went up to the mountains and stayed there.
    -In topics i was interested in I collected all i could find from the library's, and everywhere else. Still have have huge piles with magazines on those topics stored away that i dont know what to do with.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I feel the exact opposite. I always love concepts that completely go against all natural and instinctive human reasoning, including various paradoxes.

    Infinity itself is indeed very paradoxical. With the Hilbert Paradox in mind, a hotel with an infinite amount of rooms may be completely full, yet still have room for an infinite number of more guests. I truly love such things.

    My mother says I was always cleaning things when I was 3.
    And I used to love to pretend to talk on the phone. I still love talking on the phone.

    I am an INTJ/INFJ mix.

    Interesting on how the E/I, P/J characteristics can be seen much earlier - where could I find more information on that? I'm not sure myself that the I/E is clear. The P is though.

    - I was happiest when I could spend hours on the beach, picking, poking, and playing with all the denizens of the coast.
    - I hated crowds, meeting relatives, strangers. Now I still have to force myself out to socialise.
    - Was convinced of the monsters under the bed too - would do the same running leap as purple chicken, only the other way around - from the light switch to the bed at night. (don't the monsters disappear in daylight? )
    - I'd do my homework in the next lesson (like Jennifer) so I wouldn't have to do it at home though.
    - I thought Eternity was a concept meant to punish. But I craved space.
    - Some older relatives thought I was stuck up. This was primarily because of a refusal to speak in babytalk.
    - However, my twin and I would spend hours chatting with each other in our own language, and we apparently understood each other - there're still tapes of that around, and we've not been able to figure out what we were saying.

    Perhaps an anecdote that's probably ENTPish.

    Was about 2 and running around at a dinner party, apparently I saw something out the glass door while playing with the other kids. Went and made a dash for the shiny thing, straight into the glass door, and sent myself into a concussion for 10 whole minutes and became the star attraction of the evening, unwittingly. That's kind of ENTPish on hindsight, no.

    1st of all the light in my room was a lamp so all I had to do was reach over and turned it off and 2 I was scared of the dark so I left it on

    also I remember I use to have this reoccurring dream from 7-14 where my whole family is murdered but I'm not so I use to make one of my parents sleep with me or I would sleep in their bed cuz as long as things weren't like in the night mare. I think when I got to 12 my mom quit listening and told me too go to sleep then 14 maybe 13 it changed as my brother had just turned 16 that he was out with friends and he got killed in a car crash and my parents were still hacked up. Maybe I saw something on tv I wasn't suppose to when I was little, still this was the main reason why I never slept.

    and my grandma was scared that people would walk all over me when I got older, as I tended to be laid back, and go with the flow. Most of the time I would go with what everyone else wanted. I was easy to please, still am.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so
