    I daydream so much, I just call it regular thinking.

    I do, to the point that it effects my moods. It's like I slip into a complete alternate reality...it's amazing. Last night, I nearly ran over a guy with my cart in the grocery because of it, and my spouse grabbed the cart and started laughing. He knew I was off in the Alps somewhere.
    I think I think more than you think I think.

    Everybody daydreams. You can't be 100 percent in control of your thoughts at all times. You can call it something else if you want, but it's the same thing.

    By this do you mean getting lost in your thoughts or actually trying to create a concrete-dream reality?
    More the former. It's totally involuntary.

    It's not quite the phenomenon of trying to create a fantasy world, either; it's not a delusion per se.. more of a momentary lapse in attention.

    In what way? Are there daydream sequences in those shows?

    Hm.. both. Usually while writing a journal entry or when i want to use a metaphor or imagery to understand something/make others understand.
    Other times, i'll daydream about potential future situations to have a better grasp on my reaction to them. It's good when i need to better understand my own thoughts/feelings.

    Yeah, pretty much. There are words, too, but imagery is the main thing.

    It certainly varies in content - from more mundane stuff, like imagining a conversation I'm going to have soon, through a kind middle ground, where it's modifying reality (i.e. replacing the mundane with something more interesting), to outright stories in other worlds with made up people, unrelated to anything particularly real.

    You think everyone daydreams? In what way?
    NFs...the visionaries...etc. Not in a strictly only NF way...in a 'this thread will likely be dominated by NFs' way.

    yes I do Elaur. What jeffster said. I do the hypothetical simulation/pervert thing where I just jump clouds, which I'm positive is not limited to NFs or Ns at all. I equate daydreaming to diet-out-of-body intermissions between paying attention and looking like you're paying attention. What you think about during this time is up to the individual. Don't waste this time on boring stuff though, please. That's what paying attention is for.

    I don't daydream and I always thought that maybe it was just introverts that do. My mom (ESP) just told me that she day dreams all the time. I think about stuff all the time but I never actually day dream. I hardly even understand what it means to daydream.
    I dont know if I do, I think a lot, think all the time and sometimes only get to understandings of things which people otherwise know through the medium of thinking about them (that brings its own problems because its easy to over think and to wind up in unhealthy cerebration).

    I'm probably the same as the OP.

    As long as I can remember. I used to get told off all the time at school.

    Are there times you daydream more?
    When I have time to myself. Like traveling to and from work. In the weekends(just before getting up for the day). Before I go to sleep at night. While I'm having a cup of tea/coffee after getting home from work. When I'm sitting on the couch, not watching T.V. Actually if I'm not focused on a task or person (distraction), I'm day dreaming. In fact real life intrudes on my day dream time, LOL.

    What does it mean to you to daydream?
    It's like breathing. It's my private little space, that no-one can look in on and tell me to clean up. It's source of my inspiration, the place where I solve my problems (and create them). It's my little retreat from the cruel world. I can't imagine what my life would be like, if I didn't do it.




    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.
    Real life awaits and she is a demanding mistress.
