    Default ISFPs and INFPs - do you do this?

    I laughed out loud when I saw this post and repped Saturned immediately because my ISFP best friend from high school does this compulsively ... and then, this afternoon, I called someone while walking to CVS because I was bored ... and I rambled on and on about trees and clouds and this yellow fire hydrant (OMG why isn't it red???) the whole way.

    So obviously, I came back home and immediately changed my type to reflect this revelation.

    But anyway, INFPs, do you also do this? Or is this sort of "MY FOOD PORN, LOOK AT IT" behaviour more of an ISFP quirk? Poll responses and qualitative responses alike would be appreciated.

    I don't beleive I do this I mean I usually show off silly pictures I found online to my family members (despite their annoyance ) and I tend to retale people funny things in an obtrusive manner for shits and giggles. However if I had a decent working camera I suppose I might be more inclined to take pictures of beautiful nature things and show them off to others. Would that count?

    Also, whether this is Fi, Se, or Ne related, I do not know.

    No, that's not it, precisely. What I'm describing is more of a "Oh, I'm walking somewhere and I just saw a puppy, I have to tell someone RIGHT NOW" thing. It's pretty in-the-moment and I'll totally have forgotten about it five minutes later, but if I see a pretty pink cloud and want to rip out a piece and make it into a puffy skirt for myself, I want to share it!

    Hahaha my INFP friend and I do that all the time sometimes. There are times when you just have to tell someone about that thing. Unlimited texting ftw!

    Then again, my INTP friend and I do that too. The only difference would be the nature of the fluff.

    I think it might be the nature of the things involved. I'm usually pretty happy to share tangible things I see and like but I usually like to mull over more abstract ideas before tossing them out there. I guess that might have more to do with levels of intellectual confidence than with functions though.

    Yesh indeed. We don't do the tangible things as much as the random thoughts. If we do happen to notice things in the environment, it's highly possible that that thing has been there for a long time but we never saw it due to general obliviousness. O.O

    Well, I've walked down this path twice a week for the eight months. I still get lost on it and am likely noticing things that have been there long before I was (that yellow fire hydrant didn't look new) ... so I dunno?

    I think the difference can be if there is a choice, which is preferred? (Being random about the world around you or being random about whatever weird crap lives inside your head baking cookies.)

    Going out with my ISFP friend is like asking to have a free running commentary on life as we live it. This past summer she came to visit me for 2 weeks. Driving became the 6th circle of hell for me.

    "oooh! Look! a hill! I bet you could go sledding down it! OMG There is a TREE AT THE TOP! Ohh and there is a bird flying to the tree. Hey now you're turning right onto that other road. Ooh, there are FLOWERS by this road!!!! OMG HOT GUY MOTORCYLE OTHER LANE!! Hey I love this song! *R E S P E C T I KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO ME* Ooooooh another hill!"

    Whereas my randomness may occasional flutter to the world around me but soon it takes off into worlds unseen by man.

    "ooh! Look! a hill! I wonder if under the hill there is a hobbit. Which reminds me that my friend Mike used to live in New Zealand. I wanted to go visit him but I couldn't take time off of work. However in 2014 I am planning on going to Antarctica."

    Senza nestles somewhere in between those two extremes! Exact location as yet unspecified. Either way, I think my Pe function is rather subdued, which makes this rather more difficult to decide on.

    *checks map*

    You are HERE*. Between the second star on the right and straight on until morning.

    *the non-creepy version, if available. Not the Michael Jackson version.
