    It is my opinion, people who have a hard time accepting premonitions,
    visions, psychic abilty, are those who have an immense amount of personal insecurity to begin with.

    The unknown, unexplainable, scares the shit out of them.
    That makes them closed-minded cowards.
    well done!

    I must say, I'm with entropie on this one. For the same reason I don't believe in fairies etc. I don't think it makes me close-minded.
    I've seen no proof of the concept, therefore remaining skeptic is the obvious thing to do.

    Are you sure you're an INFP?

    I can't really get on board with that either. I'm not all that open the possibility of vision, premonitions, and psychic ability only because I've seen more evidence of it being a sleight of hand parlor trick used to manipulate people or rip them off more than I've seen evidence of it being real. You put those who claim ESP, psychic abilities, etc. into a controlled environment and MUCH MUCH more often than not, they're proven to be frauds.

    I don't think my skepticism about it makes me a coward or insecure. I'd love to believe a lot of those sorts of things could actually happen, but upon looking at cold hard evidence in front of me, I really don't. Not closing my mind to future proof, but as it stands, it's just not there for me.

    I'll have dreams sometimes that seem to repeat themselves in real life, or these odd little coincidences happen that seem too weird to be just an accident, but I just don't believe it has anything to do with anything supernatural. I would investigate psychological or physiological explanations before I would consider the idea of supernatural phenomena. That's just me though, the boring realist. It's fun to IMAGINE those possibilities, but for me to really adopt a conscious belief in them is not my deal.

    Oh, and I think the unknown scares the shit out of the majority of people on the planet, just in different capacities. As far as I can see anyway.

    I fit there, yes.

    Believe me, I'm open, but I naturally approach things with skepticism. Now I'm not saying anything's impossible, but right now, I just don't see it.
