    Default Which function is responsible for coincidences ?

    I have an inordinate amount of coincidences in my life and it often makes me feel like I'm crazy. Is this just picking up patterns? Which function is responsible for the recognizing them as obscenely frequently as I do ?

    I know they mean nothing. But it happens to me way more often than most anyone I've ever met!


    I have irl friends that can attest to this.

    So which function is responsible for recognizing them so often ?

    Really? Then why? I was thinking it might be my propensity to connect dots that most would find inconsequential and then place meaning on it which is why I always have to stop myself from over thinking. It's like imagination gone awry but when I point them out, other people see them, so it's not my imagination. It's a bit confusing and I guess I was hoping for a logical explanation. :/

    As per Jung, intuition is the crest of whence and where to an object comes and goes.

    So.....

    co·in·ci·dence
    noun
    1. a remarkable concurrence of events or circumstances without apparent causal connection.

    That is not the definition of a function.

    I assure you - a Mango Mocha Caffe is not a function, either.

    It just happens a lot .. As in way more than typical not to notice. When I was little I thought it was more about god loving me, lol. Then, I have to admit I was more agnostic and it was the universe that loved me :p (it's just lots of serendipitous moments not to take notice). And I don't know. I think it's sorta creepy sometimes and I want it to stop. But, at the same time, it's all good in the end and I have to learn to trust it and relax. But that's hard because the world is scary and what if .. What if ... What if ...


    Bla bla bla bla bla I'm going bla bla because your response made me feel like you're one of those people who just chalks me up as crazy to make life easier which is totally cool if that's the case. It's easier than always feeling like I have to justify and explain myself
