    I ALWAYS picture this picture


    in my mind when I think of 'time'. Which does nothing for me because it's space time, and well, it doesn't really go beyond that. I just imagine some kind of planet in this little ditch.

    Time confuses the heck out of me. I feel like I can never really grasp the concept of time. I feel like time is everywhere, it's like a substance in the air and it doesn't have a direction. I mean, I know we live in linear time, but I never really think about it like that. But I guess as the article says, I never seem to have a problem linguisitically with concepts of time. I get it. I don't get how you mix 'up' and back' to be honest. But I mix up 'early' or 'late' when speaking of time differences between different clocks quite often, and I'm terrible when it's Daylight Savings Time. I'm never sure if I'm gaining or losing until someone tells me.

    The future is above me. If I reach my hands up high I touch it with the tips of my fingers. It spreads out vast up in the air.

    The present is all around me. It takes a kind of egg shape flowing around me.

    The past is under me. It starts at the bottom of my shoes and goes straight down. Two long thin straight beams.

    I was a little suprised because I have some things on visualization and they always have the future as being in front of you.

    Past is left and rising, present is level, future is right and gradually elevated.

    Days are clockwise, weeks are linear, years are counterclockwise and millenia are linear but more monolithic than weeks.

    All of it is paradoxicaly connected and runs within a model of itself, but the model isn't "it." Can't explain it in words!

    NJs tend to indicate the future in front of them, the present right where they are standing, and the past right behind them.

    NPs tend to indicate the future off to the right, the past off to the left, and the present a few feet in front of them.

    When questioned, NPs generally say that they observe time flow past them, whereas NJs generally say they are right in the middle of the flow.
    I've never thought of time from the NP view, that seems weird. I'm definitely in the middle of the flow.

    I'm also on the NJ side when it comes to the other article.

    this is like something I'd say, even though I would regret the redundancy, because I think about time as consecutive instances, not placement of objects relative to other objects.

    Hmm. Perhaps, booyalab, you should start a blog titled "You might be an INTJ if..."

    In order to make the spatial images work, they try to associate them with concrete landmarks from their own experience -- like associating yearly intervals with school semesters, so that other events can be associated with specific experiences rather than the intervals themselves.
    This is me. I associate time with jobs, school, relationships, and even sports. For anything that happened in 1987, that's when the Cardinals lost to the Twins in the World Series.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I did this and even though I am positively an INFJ, I "acted out" time in the same way that NPs do. I picture time from left (past) to right (future) and it is in weekly segments that are connected to eachother and fold up along saturday night. Monday is always the most to the left and saturday is the most to the right. Sunday floats around and is usually next to monday but on the other side, so that the weekly segment is in between sunday and I.

    I think of time as segments, filled with certain events, feelings, nuances, etc.

    That's some interesting stuff, though I think I seem to be more in the middle between NJ and NP, based on the descriptions. My vision of time began in front of me, with light blue/white/silvery, warbling tendrils that extended on to infinity. Only the time stream and myself were in this vast space of white, too, if that matters.

    Funnily enough, though, my past, present, and future (in that order, coming from the start of the time) were all close together and next to me, despite the other places where I could have put it.

    I guess that works with the fact that I tend to work on a smaller scale of things-- everything's under a close-by, compact scope.
