    My ISFP friend is a bit like this. Her facebook profile pictures demonstrate this completely. They include pictures of:

    - a brightly coloured, fruit-laden tree
    - a sculpture shaped like a giant flower but covered with tiny mirrors like a disco ball
    - cutely painted faces on bus wing mirrors
    - someone in a spongebob squarepants costume completing the New York marathon
    - 2 pairs of shoes side by side (her's and her husband's I assume)
    - a white Greek house with a blue door, and a bright, clear sky above
    - a peacock
    - a picture of herself standing in front of a giant garden gnome
    - a swimming turtle

    She's also does the same with words. She's always writing things of interest down in a notebook: words of wisdom, sayings, books or movies to read/watch etc. Sometimes, it's like she's trying to mentally collect the world and everything in it.

    I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas;
    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

    Seems logical that ISFPs would do this: strong personal impressions (Fi-dom) based on sensory things (Se).
    INFPs... I guess Fi coupled with Ne would instead give random bursts of outrage such as: "Oh my god, I just realized how people totally slaughter those poor baby seals! This just feels SO wrong!"

    (INTPs on the other hand will randomly give some very smart ideas that are either completely useless or unrelated to the subject)

    I don't do what the OP says, I'm more like saying random stuff, like @Saturned.

    But I have an ISFP friend who likes to comment about everything she sees, usually about people in the street, or about the way I do things. I'm never paying attention to anything, including the way I'm doing things, so it's kinda useless for her to comment them with me. I'm more an ideas person, lost in my mind and away from the world. It's nice to see her with her boyfriend, they notice everything and comment about what they see with each other. ^^

    So thus far, not a single person actually DOES this, ISFP or otherwise. Of course, we don't actually have many ISFPs on the board ... but hmm. Doesn't seem to be an INFP thing at all.

    Anyway, keep the responses coming, folks, and thanks!

    I point out things to people, mostly to people that I know will appreciate them. Definitely don't recount anything to people who are not there at the moment, they need to see what I'm pointing out. I remember going hiking with friends through a park some time back, we saw a bushbuck, warthogs, a giraffe, mongoose, squirrels and various troops of baboons. Guess who noticed them first and pointed them out? Every single time.

    I do this all the time without even noticing.

    Yeah, the "without noticing" part is definitely true. It's pretty much just stream-of-consciousness rambling, I guess. I live too much in my head to live in the moment though ... I guess it might be overt introversion rather than lack of sensing though?

    This is such an awesome idea. I think I'm going to post a video of me one day wandering around campus pretending I'm in a video game first though, 'cause I do that pretty often.
