    ^And I've also gotten the impression it's not that unusual for INFxs.
    Never had an imaginary friend. I never thought I'd say this, but I'm too realistic for that.

    Well, I'm not making any claims.

    I don't have imaginary friends, but I do create characters in imaginary scenarios and worlds in my mind, and yes, I often build them off of real people I've met, but didn't really get to know. Often, they encompass my ideal of a person in whatever role I've placed them in, and then I might add flaws to humanize them for dramatic element. Time to start writing a novel or something

    I hear a lot of INFPs say they have "movies running in their mind" and I'd say it is something like that, not an interaction with an imagined person (I'm not crazy!!!! ).
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    I internalize what I learn by imagining myself breaking it down into simple terms and explaining it to people that I know and like but that aren't particularly intellectual. I also do philosophical exploration by imagining dialogues with famous smart people (mostly dead ones). Not exactly the same as what the OP is talking about, but related I guess.

    This too, I do this a lot. I guess this is why INFPs are supposedly good at putting difficult concepts in laymen's terms.
