    Default what time do you experiene creativity or explosion of ideas?

    i tried desperately falling asleep but my mind keeps wondering from idea to idea to idea and won`t shut up. one idea leads to another and another. *sigh* it usually, if it does happen, in the middle of night

    maybe whiskey will solve this problem......maybe i will turn into Hemingway or this


    are there times during the day or night in which you are the most creative? what kind of ideas do you normally get?

    Never really; or any time I choose. It doesn't just come over me and consume me.

    Mine just kind of builds up over time and then I release it in a huge burst, often at night. Then I get some good sleep and it still continues in a stream for several days before tapering off. Afterwards I feel more collected and rational and have kind of a lucid clarity, which seems to invite creativity to build again.

    Pretty much any time. Night is better because there are fewer interruptions. Kinds of ideas I normally get are varied, ideas for novel scenes, a song that won't stop playing in my head until I write it down and play it, an idea for a painting that won't go away, a stream of words that I know are meant to be part of a poem that is demanding I compose it and sometimes, it's an idea about science [usually related to astronomy, genetics or cosmology] linguistics or philosophy that won't go away until I get up and go study it out.

    The ones I most remember hit me immediately on waking. Now what does THAT say about the value of sleep. "Let's sleep on it" - true as ever it was.
    Cognitive functions:
    Fi (95%); Ti (90%); Ne (75%); Fe (60%); Ni (50%); Si (50%); Te (15%); Se (5%)

    "INFP values but INTP skills" describes me best of all

    In the shower. Must be the negative ions?

    Sudden bursts out of nowhere at any time of the day. It's like dealing with a knot of thoughts and then everything becomes clear and untangled in an instant.

    Upon awakening in the morning. Sometimes while talking to other people. It's not really a burst of ideas or creativity. It's already there, it just becomes clear or everything falls into place and becomes sharper. I can do something with it now.

    When I am occupied with mundane tasks, such as driving, shopping, walking, sitting in class, working, etc. Never when I can actually write them down or get creative.

    It can happen anywhere, at any time of day or night, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or not. Intense aerobic exercise can bring it on, sometimes.

    Usually between 11 and 4. Then again when I'm trying to get to sleep.
