    ^People... it's the bulk-buy musical undies I gifted two Xmas ago. ('High School Musical' song cycle is pretty epic though, I understand the confusion).

    I read the posts with interest. I hear about the NF inner fantasy world and always wondered what goes on in your minds. I have my inner world, but it's related to analysis and evaluating possible scenarios. Is the NF version more about experiencing the "trip" rather than analysis?

    I bet you never suspected the key to their powers involved musical undies.

    Mine would be something by David Bowie. Perhaps the theme from "Cool World". *happy otter paw claps* Yay!

    And yes. Theme music that you could hear outside your headphones/head would be awesome! Especially if it was generated by your movements/thoughts and sychronised with daily life. *is filled with glee at the thought*

    I've also had my mother say similar things to me. Except she's just a little bit more likely to believe in it just for a moment or two. But that is one of her chief complaints about me--being too much "in my head".
    *pats the sad panda*

    My mom is an ESTJ, and while she does nothing to discourage my flights of fancy or my creative side, she doesn't "get" the "lost in your head" feeling. She enjoys the fantastical stuff, but as long as order and sense are restored afterward.

    I think my fantasy element has been further promoted by all the truly odd "Big Fish" things that happen to or around me. I remember one time, not long ago, I was laying on my bed and I heard this weird noise. I walked into my sister's room and said, "You hear that?" She said yes. It was a puzzling noise.

    "Sounds like a hot air balloon?" I ventured.

    I went downstairs, kept hearing the noise. Finally I turned around and there was this huge hot air balloon rising up from behind my neighbor's house (we're not rural, so I don't know how they managed it) with a wildly waving Santa Claus at the helm.

    I just sort of stood there staring. "Yeah. That would happen..."

    It's all about the trip for me. I do run to a conclusion, but it's the vast amounts of detail in between that I really live for.

    Yes I have an extremely rich inner life. So rich and complex, I can't even begin to explain it.

    Default check this out. this is where I am if you cant find me

    My inner world is like a rain forest jungle with hundreds of thriving plants and trees and every kind of animal, loving on each other, rubbing up against each other, happy to be there and me walking around in the middle of it finding undiscovered creatures of which I plan on showing the world, someday. All of our best medicines come from the rain forest jungle. I do believe it is the INFJ's who, given the right source of motivation and power (Holy Spirit inspired, of course) will discover the newest breakthroughs that bring relief and remission to many of our currently uncurable diseases, mental illnesses.
    Nothing, nothing, nothing is impossible with GOD.

    I can relate to this. My imagination is pretty vivid, but once I've adopted a personal philosophy, I tend to obsess over that and form inner world around it to the point where I can focus my thoughts on the same things every day. Apart from that, I can somewhat relate to some of the cartoonish scenarios described here. For example, a teacher caught me laughing to myself during one of his lectures because I was imagining a girl's eyes bulging out of her head on long coils. While I do daydream frequently, it's not usually in that manner. Usually, my inner world is focused on my self-image. All of my thoughts displayed for an imaginary audience.

    I...actually relate more to what you write about analysis and evaluating possible scenarios than I do to some of the really creative imaginations that others have posted here.

    I'm either analyzing myself, situations, or people, am contemplating life and philosophy and stuff like that, am in a sort of zen-like state where I just have random impressions and quasi-thoughts floating through my head and am not thinking of anything particular at all, or am a ball of emotion, and am just reveling in the emotions I'm feeling (or cringing at the emotions I'm feeling ;-).

    I definitely do the make-believe conversation thing in my head, and I love escaping into fantasy worlds when I read and while watching movies, and can be wistful that they don't actually exist, but....yeah. I don't think I'm nearly as imaginative as many here! I wouldn't say my internal world is rich with excitement. Darn. Also to echo Athenian a bit, I can actually get sick to death of my internal world at times - I think it's due to my analyzing tendencies, which can be wearisome.

    one of the infj type descriptions is the Author, right? i think sometimes we can struggle to let life happen bc we're already strangling it with writing (imagination/fantasy). a la amelie...

    as far as when around other people, i grew up playing soccer and thinking three or four passes ahead of the play. as the play unfolds, i always chuckle bc i see so many perfectly absurd possibilities just begging me for a grin. it's just so easy, people at work think i'm crazy, but who can argue with a chuckle?

    nonetheless, constant internal monologue gets to be a bit much sometimes.

I find myself constantly "daydreaming", or creating wildly fictacious stories whenever my mind wanders. It's not something I consciously decide to do. Sometimes while in the company of others I will imagine the conversation going a completely different direction. I also tend to create conversations with people I know. I imagine exactly what would be said, felt, thought...and I play it over in my mind, adding and subtracting certain scenes. I have been known to confuse actual conversations with made-up ones, and have on occasion felt I had a much deeper relationship with someone than what actually was.
    I've noticed that some of the people I know in real life are actually much more fascinating in my imagination. I build people up in my mind, and am often disapointed when I spend real time with them. Mostly I enjoy my strong ideality and ability to fabricate fantasy so easily, but I can also see how easy it might be to get too wrapped up in my own world and shut others out. Is this something other INFJ's struggle with? Or any other type? Staying grounded. Sometimes I think that my make-believe life is much more appealing than real life, but I know that in order to make real life interesting I need to spend more time in it.
    Definitely trademark of the INFJ.
    I personally love that quality within myself.

    ps- Amelie is one of my favorites.
