    I know I know I know! Same here.

    But each feeling has a particular tone or taste or whatever. You know it when you feel it. The trick isn't to "name" it, but just to figure out what it's a signal far. Talking it out with a friend can help, if only to bounce ideas back and forth and see what clicks.

    Also, sometimes, as I learned later in life, certain feelings mean, "It's time to get out of your head and engage the real world." Hence, dancing.
    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

    Then of course there are the instances where everyone purposefully pronounces a word wrong, e.g., gwah-dah-LOOP instead of gwah-da-LOO-pay for Guadalupe, because it's the proper name of a street, for example, and the incorrect pronunciation makes it clear that they're talking about the street. If I use the "correct" pronunciation for the street, people are like "Huh, what did you say?" and I have to pronounce it wrong to get the "Oh, Guadalupe! Why didn't you say so in the first place, man?"
    Maybe they are confusing Guadalupe with Guadeloupe?

    Clearly sensor activity going on

    My own rant, related to people who think that way... I was relaying a story from my childhood awhile ago with someone from typec and how I occasionally got into fist fights when I was younger (over the stupidest things). The person felt the need to try and pull my INFP card and insinuated I was really an ISFP, obviously. Internally I was face palming and momentarily felt the urge to throttle them, verbally. Intuitives NEVER get into physical confrontations? RIIIIGGHHHHTT...

    Here is the original from New Yorker L.P.D.: Libertarian Police Department - The New Yorker Imagine a police dept. that is run by a private for profit organization Quite Robo-Cop'ish. All the product placements are just satire of our own consumerist society.

    Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie basically had the same idea back in the eighties :
