I feel most like myself when I feel like I'm providing meaningful psychological or philosophical insight--either general wisdom in a group setting; honed, trusted advice in a one-on-one setting; or coming to new realizations when I'm alone.
I contort and compress in very uniquely me shapes in all sort of situations. I suppose i feel my 'me'ness more when given slack or when being put under crushing pressure. The first lets me spread out into my most comfortable configuration, the second makes me decide which part of me is most important.
I want those who've made the attempt to try again. I want you to place the conscious aside, the reasoning, the locus of control. I want you to place your hand over your heart and react. What makes your mind, your pulse slide without resistance into calm, into action? That... yes.
Last night, I accidentally spilled my sister's tiny seed beads everywhere. A big pile of them, all different colors, different sizes. Collecting them all into one pile, I could not stop staring at them. This is what that spot in my brain I can't describe looks like, right there before my eyes.

When I'm presented with a problem, and I let my mind drift into chaos-contemplation of it, and the moment comes when the solution coalesces into my mind, and I have *it*.
Reading a book that puts me in a place, time, and circumstance that resonates with me (Anathem, Name of the Wind, etc.)
Andante already said this, but "unfettered" - those rare moments when I'm free of obligation and responsibility and can just wander. Not having to care what comes next, just being able to enjoy whatever happens.
Eck already said this, but when I'm moving - either literally or figuratively, in a way that is beyond the routine.
Immersing myself in novel situations, when I'm alone. Getting out of "normal" life.
