Interesting. I don't analyze things based on 'how I feel.' Wow, how do I analyze things - what is it like?How does it feel?
Hmm, I'd say it's like a steamroller. It's like a tsunami (like the person above stated). It's like being naturally high. It's like having a waterfall inside of you. Sometimes it's like instant clarity. Sometimes it's like hopscotch. Sometimes it's like a flash of light that blinds you, like when you are looking out of the windshield and the sun is right in your line of sight. Sometimes it's like a bolt of lightning and the crash of thunder.
I have a stream of consciousness. It's like a commentator during a sports match, connecting things rather than observing them. It's analyzing what is beyond what I see, so that I don't see anymore. It's analytical and open at the same time. It's like a voice in the back of your mind, making...wow...this is really hard to describe.Fluid and lava lampy, or conscious and analytical?
Daydreaming: contemplative and aimless, floating like on a cloud, but hopping and jumping from one cloud to another, falling through one cloud and jumping onto another one, like a butterfly fluttering among the flowers, never really resting on one of them because they are all so great.Contemplative and aimless or determined and purposeful?
Brainstorming/thinking: determined. VERY determined. VERY purposeful. VERY analytical, almost critical. Thinking ahead. Looking for alternatives. Seeing how far they go. What is the best option?
Did I?How did you learn to trust it enough for it to become the hero?
I was conscious of my stream of consciousness all my life and thought this meant I was mentally ill because I mistook it for 'voices' I had read about. HAHAHA, until I talked to my aunt, who is a psychologist, and she explained the difference.Was it wholly naturally occurring or could you feel yourself experimenting throughout your life?
In addition, I was conscious of my tendency to hop. In fact, my hopping mechanism is the way I get to sleep. When I was a child, I had trouble falling asleep. Hopping was the way I soothed myself to sleep, if that makes sense.
I found if I thought about things consciously or daydreamed, either way would lull me to sleep.
However, I was pretty much always very keenly attune to my thought processes, even when I was young (though unsophisticated). However, I was never very attune to my feelings, which are an entirely different matter.
I think I would have been a lot brighter or smarter, much more capable or intelligent - at least better at perfect recall, which I truly envy. I think I would be better at concrete, practical matters, which would be lovely.Third, how differently do you think your life would have unfolded, the directions you would have taken, if your dominant and inferior were in switched roles. To what extent would it affect your current ideologies, values, principles? In other words, how vital is your dominant function to the person you are today.
Yet, I wouldn't want to change who I am. Maybe it would have changed my life in negative ways I cannot foresee right now.
The best would be to master the skill over time and incorporate the best parts of me and overcome my weaknesses. Then I would have the best of both worlds, so to speak.
