    Exactly the same thing happens with me but somehow, I can drive just fine while being in this "altered" state without music on. I also do the same thing - predicting what other drivers are going to do - it's like having a sixth sense - knowing when they are going to change lanes or do something before they do it. I think that's Ni.

    When I was a teenager I thought I was crazy because I was so imaginative and would imagine conversations in my head.

    That sucked. What a relief to know I'm just an intuitive.

    Other than that, many things suck IRL being an NF because the world isn't living up to my expectations...I've grown out of that some, though. I think I've become more balanced and matured a bit.

    I also don't like a lot of noise and action, unless I'm in the mood for it.

    Hey - that's actually not a good assessment on your part. I experience this A LOT with sensors...I regularly talk to an ISFJ who seems bewildered by the fact that I ALWAYS want to know "why" and he sees it as the hallmark of being an NF, and it annoys him.

    My ex - also a sensor - told me I was overly analytical and he got sick of me analyzing his behavior.

    My grandfather's wife - another sensor - used to tell me that I thought about stupid stuff that didn't matter. My grandfather - another sensor! - told me that I was "good at the wrong things."

    I could go on and on. This kind of thing is real, even if you are the exception to the rule, you need to remember that you are the exception.

    And this is my biggest problem with a lot of ENTJs. You see, people don't want to be judged. Better to apply these judgments to yourself and your own behavior.

    You think your judgments about people are uncanny and so much better than others. They're not.

    Yeah, I'm sick of making no damn sense sometimes to a lot of people. It's the infernal connections that fire off over every little nuance in a conversation, and I don't always have a good grasp at understanding how much of a leap my own mind makes while listening. It's really embarrassing sometimes when I respond to someone's question/comment with what I *hear* instead of what they actually asked/said. I used to work with an ESFP who would explode at me all the time for doing this- never answering her actual question. It's even a problem while dealing with other Ns sometimes, if we're not on the same page (making similar leaps in thought).

    I certainly do apply the same judgments to myself and my own behavior.
    And I didn't say that my judgments are better than others at all. I just have an intuition about people when I first meet them that some people tend to miss. A good judge of character.



    I can also relate to that blanking out while driving.

    Senses "sense" stuff.. and eyes "read"

    Just saying

    Naw, she's not wrong. You're just using a different definition of "sense." Certainly there s the concrete definition of "perceive something by using the senses," and certainly you still use your eyes to observe someone's behavior or your ears to hear what they're saying, but intuitives use their intuition to interpret the data they perceive via their eyes, ears, etc. As an NF, Arclight, I'm sure you've had the experience of listening to someone say one thing, and understanding that they mean something entirely different, even if they don't intend to convey that meaning. That, I believe, is what Lily Flower means by "sense" here.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    I know I'd be like that. I'm scared to learn how to drive.
