    Default Celebrating the Rich Inner Life

    I do to an extent, but usually I have a couple long, convoluted epics running that I add onto. Eventually, after months or years, they sometimes trickle into the computer (but they have a better chance if they're poems.)

    Anyone else got a rich inner life of stories?

    I will sometimes create scenes in my head based on some sort of recent event on hand, and I've written the dialogue to some of them down when I've had the chance... but it's a lot of effort to try to continue them while keeping the sincerity, so they're always very brief and fleeting.

    Only ones that are soap opera-esque or about some sort of adventure..in the jungle, the city as an ant, or something.

    Very often, and normally I project myself into them in some way as well, as I want to take part in the fun.

    Yep, and I star in all of them. And there's tonnes of sex.

    Yes...I like to visit other fictional worlds in my head or go on adventures. Unfortunately, everytime I visit a fictional world, I end up explaining to the inhabitants our ways of life in this world and how humans work...the unfortunate part of this is that I end up spending more time blabbing about how people tick and less time going on an adventure.

    I was in a class of over twenty where there were just three of us introverts. The Introverted Intuitive and I (Introverted Thinking) started comparing notes on dealing with the very extraverted experience.

    She was frazzled. I was not. She wondered why I was doing so well; to be honest, so did I.

    I started paying attention to my head and realized that every hour or so I would zone out, thinking very intently about what I was learning. When I mentioned this to her, she admitted that she was having problems doing something similar.

    I can't say I really garnered any interesting insights into the retreat into the inner life, tho. I'm just more aware of when I'm "dreaming of Babylon" and I'm even more reluctant to get back to the here&now.

    Do you think this had anything to do with the difference between Ne and Ni... and whether the judging process was introverted or extraverted?

    Those with an extraverted process organize instinctively on the outside, but in real-time in a class I can see that as more difficult. Those with an introverted judging are extraverted perceiving and are good at gathering info and then processing it quickly internally... which is the very thing you said you did in this class.

    I'm even more reluctant to get back to the here&now.

    Yeah, that was what we decided. I've wondered since then if that's a commonality for Ni Dominants (and a lesser prob for Ni aux.). I tell you--it's changed the way I think about structuring breaks in classes/lectures.

    I could tell she was having problems--her eyes were all glazed. I felt bad for her. Except, this was the MBTI qualifying class--I was so happy to be there I was vibrating into duplicates!

    I think he'll survive.

    Well, I'll tell you, from this INFJ's point of view, if I have too much information thrown at me, I get caught up in trying to process it, throw meaning on it, rather than taking notes (as I should do, knowing my horrible memory for facts)....and when I look back at my notes I often find that they are half-written...I cut off when something new catches my attention. I know this about myself (my inability to pay attention to everything), so I try to just listen and "bullet" what comes down the pike that's important.

    I've often wondered why I have to concentrate so very hard in certain situations, and it seems that my "inner life" takes over at the slightest inattention to the subject at hand.
