    I have little characters in my head for all my friends. Don't get me wrong, they're very much based off of them and aren't really insanely based on fantasy. It's just, I like to fill in the.. holes with things I want. So sometimes my imaginary friends do have much more interesting personalities... so conversation can sometimes be more interesting.


    and they're usually just better listeners....



    But I can still stay grounded and can tell when I'm being a bit outrageous or when I can expect to be going in the complete wrong direction in my head.

    It's still fun
    We do the dance upon the plains.
    Then I shake your shoulders,
    You push me down into the grains,
    Who rubs our noses in the night? We do! We do!

    In relation to the idea of magic and such existing, there is SO much that I wish were real or true, or that I'd come across just to make life as exciting as it could be, as it is in my own mind. Time-travel has always been in my interests, so currently I'm fabricating day-dreams of coming across The Doctor and hitching a ride with him on the TARDIS so we could go just anywhere. [Honestly. Just yesterday, at work, I saw a customer who resembled David Tennant's Doctor enough for me to think, for a split-second, "Oh my gosh, YES!" only to be sorely disappointed ].

    Magic, time-travel, gateways into other worlds or dimensions such as the Wardrobe into Narnia, and books or films or TV shows which revolve around such things only do to feed my obsession and need for this kind of thing. Gives me new material, too, for the stories I can write in my head.
    My theme music is Return to Innocense by Enigma, Gravity of Love by enigma, and Deliver me sung by Sarah Brightman in a loop

    My J is quite strong, so I can relate to your experience. It's funny though, because I do have a very active dreamworld (many, actually), but they are each bound by their own rules. So like, if my characters start doing something that may fit the emotional theme of the "story" but defies the rules or norms that have been established I get frustrated and have to start all over from the beginning.

    If I have time to spare I really love to daydream. I tend to inform myself about every topic I am just interested in. That is why google to me is such a great invention. I canít relate to people saying they get easily bored. If task are waiting to be done I need to put them down on a paper or else I will waste my time just diving into my own thoughts and nothing will get done. This is why I actually write down every day what I want to achive by the end of the day. As a child I used to create scenes in my head about things I wanted to say to people and then never dared to say to them. It drove me nuts that I could not tell my friends the thoughts that were all in my head.

    Oh Lord, yes. I have to carry my blackberry around with me everywhere just in case I suddenly wonder about something and have to look it up immediately. (To be fair, I have to carry my blackberry around anyway for work but I think I use it more often for looking stuff up on wikipedia.) What did people do before the internets?

    If they were like me, they had a set of outdated encyclopedias and would go look up what they were wondering and ultimately get sidetracked looking up something else only to forget what they were originally looking for in the first place! Aside from that, I kept it to myself as a mystery.

    It's kind of compulsive to me. I have some thought and there I am on google. I'll also compulsively work out new thoughts, and review them, looking for new connections ... I don't mind this, but ... I don't like my mind feeling hurried, and when it is, I grow suspicious of my thoughts and begin thinking that they are simply distractions, because I associate hurried thoughts with anxiety, and I actively wish to reduce my anxiety, and to take my thoughts more slowly.

    You know? I just don't like the idea of NOT thinking about WHY I am doing something. I want everything to be conscious and for a purpose, not just automatic.

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.
    I'm like you and Athenian on this this topic. Sometimes my thoughts can take interesting twists, but I think this is a lot less frequent than many daydreamers let on. It's no more novel than any dream at night ... which despite small changes and novelties are otherwise horribly horribly horribly repetitive. It's like the OPPOSITE of creative.

    Exactly.

    It's UNBELIEVABLE how much energy I use JUST for some sort of self-consistency checking. It's like the US dept of defense budget.
