In a virtual world (aka from a book) a bunch of characters went on an adventure and did X. Sometimes I placed myself into the plot... but it's not exactly "real life"... unless I'm rehearsing in head what I needed to do.
No, we INFJ's don't create characters like INFP's do, we aren't as fantastically methodical, as our rich inner life bounces around from idea to idea and back again, based on many preconceptions, building layers and layers of depth, from jumbled sources. INFP's can take something as small as a speck of dust (dr. seuss) and build a more and more grandiose scenario around it with their intuitive way of describing their finely tuned, natural introverted feelings. INFJ's I'd say think more in the ideal as the summation, and the INFP with the Ideal as the foundation. I'd even go so far as to say, INFP's are better writers, and INFJ's are better actors. An INFP - INFJ couple, especially in hollywood, could be a considerable force, as they are true complements.
If so, how do you go about doing it? Do you imagine real life people and go on about daydreaming? How often does this take place?
I create storylines in my head if that's what you mean. Also, I normally use people irl, but sometimes there'll be crossovers with books I've read, movies I've seen, stories I've heard, etc. As to how often, all the time. Even if I'm talking to someone, I'll still be daydreaming.
I play characters but I'm not sure if that's the same thing Would like to know more... seems interesting feature of my INFP friends.... I do dsomething that I think may be similar but not sure... How about u INFJs do you do it to... is it just confined to daydreams or do u act them out??
... couldn't drag me away
