I have so many stories. I'll try to distill--
- When one little detail in my plan is wrong, it totally ruins the whole thing for me. I start getting disproportionately depressed and impulsive about it; I've been known to call off entire life projects because one little thing doesn't align. Example, I called off an entire 3-day trip in some ancient ruins because I was supposed to start at 10 am, but my bike malfunctioned and it was more like 11:30 before I got started. Not good enough. I left for another, better, city. It's completely disproportionate.
- Being oblivious to details, including in my personal appearance. I was recently yelled at, at work, for having scruffy hair and chipped nail polish for instance, which I literally did not even notice. And I was trying to look my very best! It was extremely demoralizing to be told to always be polishing myself up, trying that, then being told that I overlooked a million things and I still wasn't good enough. My inferiority piqued, I very nearly up and quit and left the country. GIVE UP NOW, trying is the first step in the road to Failure. It feels like torture always having to be attuned to this stuff.
- When deadlines start getting tight, I can lose my sense of proportion, e.g., getting fussy with the punctuation on a written assignment. I like...start crying with frustration and desperation, one mistake means I need to start all over, it's the end of the world. People think I am horribly perfectionistic and idealistic because of this propensity. Have been considered for an enneagram 1.
- Having dark visions of the future because the best indicator of future behavior is past behavior. I've had a rough life in some ways and when I remember too many painful things I start getting depressed, dwelling in it, and become convinced that my future is doomed to suck because the past always has. (I was particularly like this in college, and I don't think it's a mistake I tested as Introverting-Sensing on the MBTI during this time.)
- ISTJs who spout off every fact known to man make me feel like an idiot. I lost a valuable relationship once, because my friend was so intent on telling me everything he knew about everything that I assumed I was a stupid airhead with nothing intelligent to say. I completely withdrew and refused to interact lest my incompetency show. I had no idea he'd feel the same about my Ne!
- The hypochondria thing is so true of me that this is what sealed Ne-dom for me. I tend to over-feel varying parts of my digestive tract and think I'm getting sick. Usually, there's some other physical need I'm repressing. I also get panicky in general--I've spent the last...oh, 20 years utterly convinced I'm developing cancer. Diseases scare me.
You asked how I get out of this? Basically, the only thing you can do is realize you're having an attack and try to wait till it blows over. Your sense of proportion will realign and, once again, all things will seem possible. At least that's how it is for me.
