    Lmao.

    In regards to purple: no I don't think that the two have to be mutually exclusive. I like things being literal many times simply because I can take the connections all over the universe. Being more literal allows me to focus for once.

    Having hyperactive Ti here, I prefer to get to the precise term or meaning that someone is communicating, and sometimes it may appear that I am interpreting what someone is saying literally. I've often filled in the meaning behind what is being said with my own thought process, and it's been inaccurate from time to time. It makes it less confusing and it either negates or supports what my intuition thinks.

    unconscious adaptation.. sometimes it's simply more efficient to streamline shades of meaning, versus drive ourselves mad[der] exploring EVERY potentiality, especially regarding everyday [sometimes time-sensitive] interpersonal situations.

    Holy Rollerskating Christ, huffing N, and at the end of the day I find I don't know anything other than the fact that I like to carry a bag full of conjectures and fail troll attempts.

    It's not that weird.When I was going to Speech therapy (aged four), I used to call butterflies, Flutterbys...there are a couple of other examples, but thats the one I remember, because I still do it.
    Or some times, when there is no frame of reference that fits the context.
    Happened a lot more in my teens and early 20's, when memory or general knowledged failed ( or I had no experience at all of the situation), and I had nothing to extropolate out with. Also when I was in South Korea. I was flying blind there, as again, no frame of reference. Is awkard, but I don't think Prp's NFP card should be revoked, for taking things literally.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.
    Real life awaits and she is a demanding mistress.
