Hear mom on the other end. "Really, I don't know... that's a really good point!"

    I don't do this. It seems rather silly.

    You do something very similar actually.

    On Vent, I do tend to excessively verbalize what should be internal dialogue if that is what you mean. However, I do not think that I do this in person, and I'd probably find doing so via any other medium to be completely awkward and at least slightly disturbing.

    Ah, in that case, no I do not do that.

    It amounts to the same thing. We just happen to share our internal monologues with different groups of people. You don't do it in person and I do. It still doesn't mean that what you do on the internet is in no way representative of your personality.

    The fact is that your way of contributing to conversations often focuses on activities, things you saw or heard, stuff that's high on concrete sensory detail. It's usually completely unconnected to the topic at hand but ir's very much a matter of present reality to you.

    Sometimes, but only with personal friends of mine. I like sharing what I do and what I'm like with my friends. But, I think this also has to do with my Enneatype and instinctual variant, too.

    Yes, this is true for me as well. I only share my inner voice with people who know me well and are willing to deal with my prattling, even find it endearing. Otherwise, I'm a "speak when you're spoken to" kind of person for the most part ... or, if I'm relating to the outside world, I'm more likely to use baby Te than auxiliary Pe. I think.

    And someone on Vent (a Te-dom!!) said so too, so it's not just me, boo yah!

    I don't do what the OP describes often. I internalise it mostly.

    I do the bolded. My eyes act as a camera and i snap shot a beautiful moment which i never want to forget. It's like just before you die and (if it actually happens) important moments flash before your eyes, my snap shots are what i want to remember so at least i can leave content.

    My ISFP friend is coming to visit me for a week starting this Wednesday. Today I have received 23 texts. Their content can fall into these categories:

    1- Talking about how she should probably start packing.
    2- Mentioning that she needs to do laundry and may need to do it at my house.
    3- Sending me photos of nearly naked "hot" men that she likes from TV shows.
    4- Talking about how she is sitting at home doing nothing right now.
    5- Talking more about how she needs to pack.
    6- More photos of hot men from TV shows that I don't watch but should solely based on the pectoral merits of its cast.

    Kill me. Please. Anyone.
