    It seems like there should be an obvious solution to this.

    YES. Exactly. If I sit down to do a project that should take me 30 minutes, it'll probably take 3 hours, because I'll be procrastinating, daydreaming, checking message boards, playing an arcade game, etc, etc.

    For me it's like living in two worlds at once. My body does stuff in one world, while my mind thinks about things in the other (or sometimes my mind jumps from one world to the other and back). For example the other day a bunch of us actuaries were in a meeting discussing how to give thorough answers to test questions. All of these were technical insurance questions. Meanwhile my mind is thinking "What if a person had Tourette's syndrome, but it only affected them while they write?" Then I imagined myself answering the test questions while I had Tourette's of the hand, interspersing technical jargon with uncontrollable swearing. I tried my hardest not to sit there laughing to myself, because we were on conference call with about 30-40 people. After the meeting several people were commenting how boring the meeting was, while I was thinking how much I enjoyed myself.
    This cracked me up SO MUCH.

    I also don't really trust my view of reality. For example, friends put together my outfits and tell me what jewelry to buy. I actually make some jewelry, but my husband (ESTP) always knows just what will improve the designs--I get his input before finalizing anything. I have to call on coping skills like studying the ^^$*& maps when using rental cars out of town or it could dangerous fast. I've run laps around the same nature reserve trail for 23 years and can still come to my senses and think Where am I? I don't recognize this as my mind drifts back to whatever fantasy/problem/idea it's contemplating. And unless I count out loud, I cannot get the right number of cups of flour into the bread machine.

    I'm not sure that you are participating in this thread but I think that what you are alluding to is my thoughts on usage of the Ni at our teritiary level.

    The only time I feel like I'm living in the present is when I'm drawing and focused on the person/object I'm drawing.

    Yeah, I kinda get that. And as I got older, more often "Si" takes the place that "Ni" used to when I was a kid, because I fall back on memories of life experiences a lot more than daydreams about possibilities.

    When I took that processes test, the results went Fi-Se-Si-Fe, with Ni pushed back to 5th or 6th place.

    You're thinking too literally. We live in the here and now but we usually don't enjoy it, so we think or talk about things unrelated or only tangentially related to the task at hand. edit: I just realized that could apply to sensors too..So we think or talk about things that could never possibly be directly related to any task at hand. Because that wouldn't be enjoyable.
    I don't wanna!

    For at least half of my life I was always one step ahead of what I was doing at the moment. It used to be a real irritation to my husband who'd say things like, "Anja we just got home from shopping, a film, a meal out and now you want to go swimming. What is this?" But I finally decided that the one psychedelic catch-phrase the hippies got right was "Be here now" and started to practice mindfullness.

    But not without a few mis-steps. The first was pursuing vipasana meditation which nearly drove me to madness with the empty-mind concept always out of reach.

    As I age each moment does become less dispensible, more precious, so that has helped. Something I have difficulty with, though, is shifting gears. I don't know if that has an age component to it or whether it's a facet of mindfulness. But whatever I am doing absorbs my complete attention and it seems difficult for me to transition to a new activity. That had never been an issue before I started practicing living in the moment.
