    You're fairly new. You get a pass.

    You're not. You don't.

    The OP is always making these kinds of comments. I'm not being cynical, and even if I wasn't familiar with his comments, it's pretty obvious (I think), that the OP isn't serious. But I think we can turn this into a serious thread anyhow...

    This is true. Very true.

    if not, that went right over my head, insult or not
    Lol, you guys call yourselves intuitives? Hmmm, I'll chalk it up to the "idealist" in you all.

    For other types it is basically just an ending of life, but I imagine INFJs reach a moment a clarity, which actually persists postmortem. Think of it as an endless black void that is then filled with the values of all humanity, life and the entire universe.All that knowledge gathers into one tiny spot, which is the INFJ's consciousness, and from there starts expanding, but this time with traces of the INFJ in it. An INFJ becomes a part of the universe, in every sense of the word.
    Yes. Exactly. That's precisely the way I can imagine "afterlife" to be like. Anything is possible.

    So, that is my theory, now do any INFJs have experiences in that field?
    Well, I'm not dead yet I'll just have to wait and see

    I'm really missing this whole thing.

    INFJs don't fit in this world any better than INFPs, why would INFPs dog 'em?

    The above posts are the sole reason I introvert my intuition. People laugh at what they don't understand. What a shame.

    Anyway, I sort of understand what the OP is saying, and death is in fact surreal for me. But we all have our places in time, and no matter how we live our lives, the future is permanently effected by our actions.

    Oh, you idealist you! *pinches your cheeks*

    Nothing passive-aggressive about that statement.

    He's INFP, it's a new thing to change your listed type, I guess.

    I've never had any out of body experiences (at least, none I can consciously recall), but I can intuit these kinds of concepts to an extent. To your average Joe, a description like the one by the OP would be a totally incoherent piece of claptrap, but I actually understood the gist of his statement well enough to think he was serious.

    The other day I had a dream where I literally "saw" the universe (the details of the preceding situation in the dream were not vivid, and my nightly dreaming since about adolescence has been mostly stream-of-consciousness, anyway). I was on the outskirts and everything was just orbiting around everything else in a huge cluster, and perfectly silent. Another character let me know that time fluctuates between two distant points, reminding me of the vastness of the added fourth dimension of space-time, and beyond. To an intellectually-bent INFJ, this is what a bona fide nightmare looks like, rather than the boo-and-you-wake-up horror movie type nightmares that other types experience.
