    Default Are INFJ's vulnerable to car crashes?

    I get the feeling I'll run someone over one of these days. Whenever I'm driving, I just stare in front of the road and see nothing half the time. Driving is nice and therapeutic because I can do a lot of good, relaxed thinking behind the wheel, but I always have my head in the clouds. I get the feeling it'll cost me soon... is this something that happens to INFJ's or am I just an idiot?

    Is the question's disjunction meant in the inclusive or exclusive sense? In any case, I think it is an INFJ thing.
    A criticism that can be brought against everything ought not to be brought against anything.

    My mother is INFJ and she did get couple of cars totalled in her days. I've avoided couple of crashed because of my slow reaction time. I never panic, I am like, "what?" and the situation in already in the rear view mirror.

    i'm a great driver. i've probably only been honked at 2-3 times (in 5 years). i'm a very spacy person, but when my body is on the line i can pay lots of attention. Se gets much more active.

    my other INFJ male friend is also a great driver. he's the only one i really trust to drive my car, and vice versa, oddly enough.

    Yeah, I am quite like that as well. Driving is pretty relaxing, except when I have my mom complaining at me for every slight error I make. She says I come up to things too fast (eg. stop signs, tracks, stop lights, etc) but I think I am doing fine, and she annoys me. Don't have my license yet, should be able to get it in a few weeks, granted I practice a bit more.

    I am like that as well. My mom will go and panic all of the time and I'm always like, "Huh?"

    Same here. When I do drive, I'm very careful. Though I have to admit that when I start to space out, I talk to myself to stay focused.

    I've had more than my share of fender benders.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I'm quite the opposite. Driving is NOT relaxing to me at all. Mostly because I'm afraid of relaxing and then getting distracted, because I'm always ovecautious and second guessing myself. Also because when I'm in cars (driving or not) I tend to have this fascination with playing car crashes I could be in over and over in slow motion in my head.

    I avoid driving when possible.

    I'm not an INFJ, but I get this feeling quite frequently. I love to drive for recreation, especially on long, winding roads where I can keep a constant speed and the scenery is pleasant. I get lost in my thoughts and my mind sometimes drifts and abstracts to the point that I literally forget what I'm doing. So I vote for neither...it is neither because you're an INFJ nor because you're an idiot.
