    OH! I forgot! ONCE, I left the house early one morning to go to a staff meeting; I was aghast when one of my male colleagues started laughing out loud, POINTING AT MY SHOES... I had inadvertently worn one black and one navy blue pump! I was livid! :blushing: I played it off well and laughed at myself! (I did this one other time, but at church!!! This time, it was one pointed toe and one rounded toe black pump -- it was awful! ) *thud*

    At one time, I had reasoned that since my feet are so small (size 5.5), it's hard to find shoes that can fit correctly. So when I found a good pair of shoes that I liked, I got a pair of each color that I could find. Never again... those dark shoes all look the same underneath the bed in a dark room. :rolli:

    I hate when I'm looking for something, and I KNOW it's right in front of my face, but I just can't see it!

    I'm very much oblivious. I warn people about it, constantly telling them not to expect me to be observant. Especially lately, I get this feeling I'm not even USING my eyes half the time. It's kind of neat.. when I realize I'm doing it and really try to ground myself, everything looks a little brighter.

    I trip over stuff a lot. When I'm overheated or sick I also have a tendency to crash into walls or door frames.

    I have, however, learned how to navigate that "claw" pretty well if I need to. My father (I'm THINKING ISTJ gone wrong)had no clue how to see outside of his own ways of thinking, and my obliviousness drove him NUTS because I wouldn't notice housework that needed to be done without being told, or I wouldn't do it to his liking or his way. The best story I have of this is one time when he told me to feed the dogs, so I did, and then got reprimanded because I didn't notice that they needed water too. Or how I used to push the vacuum around, not realizing I was stepping on fluffy clean carpet, rather than starting in a corner and pulling the vacuum in front of me. I constantly got berated and called stupid or told "I wasn't listening" or was "doing it on purpose" ...For a people-pleasing INFJ, this pretty much hurt me on numerous levels. So.. I worked really hard on developing SOME sort of Se to try and make him happy. Though, it never really worked. -.-

    I do this and I also bang my hips on edges of tables a lot. When I worked in the service industry, I'd come home with bruises from banging into tables, etc.

    Yes! That too. I never could understand how even living in the same house for 18 years, I managed to bump into tables and corners and stub my toes on a normal basis! And let's not forget all the burns from working in food service too.

    Anyone else ever been told that your motto should be: "Wha...? Wait a minute! What is this!? I didn't authorize this change!" (add spinning around in confusion for full effect)

    I do this just about every morning, as if I have amnesia. *sad sorry head shake*

    I bump into things too! So it's not just me and LadyJaye!

    To answer this question rather intangibly, since the other sensory stuff doesn't apply to me so much....my biggest 'sensory obstacle' is the fact that I have to have a job and make a living in a world that I am often at odds with. I truly can't stand much of today's world and how it operates....so that's my personal sensory obstacle, since it's nearly all sensory stuff to operate/'survive' within it. As for what I do about it, well, that's what my life appears to be all about.....figuring out the big stuff and trying to figure out my path. :-)

    But...that's not the obstacle you're talking about....so, to carry on in the spirit of the thread and get things back to light and fluffy, I DO bump into walls/corners on occasion, but I always thought that was just a neurological issue or something. Apparently not!! It's hilarious to me that so many others do it!! :-)

    Oh, well-said. Well-said. LadyJaye and I feel the exact same way. It's frequently the biggest mountain looming on the horizon for us. We don't feel compatible with the way things are laid out in modern society, like it's too high-impact or inauthentic or too difficult/abusive.

    You people don't understand how relieved I am to know I'm not the only one who thinks this way.

    Uggh...the mountain has crept up to me all of a sudden. It's no longer looming, it's right HERE in front of me.

    It's like...every 2-3 yrs I have a major 'question-my-life-what-am-I-doing-ACK!!! HELP!!' episode, where I have to make changes and figure out how to forge my own path in this world and stay true to myself but also be happy and thrive in it....it's so hard for me....but I've done it in the past so I know I can do it again (even though the 'answer' is always different every time), and after figuring it out, even though I come out stronger and perhaps at a slightly higher plateau, it's always with an awareness and recognition that I'll have to face it again in the future....

    So I'd been coasting along just dandily for 2-3 yrs, and now the mountain is smacking me in the face again. Sigh. So, if any of this makes any sense at all, I now get to 'look forward' to about 2-5 months, or more, of trying to figure out what to do again, because I've hit that place again where I need to make a change. Serious life assessment again, regarding job/residence/relationships/life purpose/etc/ect/sigh ....because things just don't seem to be lining up for me at the moment. I'm not at peace. I know I'll figure it out eventually, but in the meantime..ug.....anyway, yeah.

    Don't mind me. Perhaps I should start a blog rather than consistently derailing threads, hahaha.

    A-freaking-men!! Now, this may only be the first time it's hit me, but I can see it needing to happen over and over, and that's why I can't even seem to climb out this first time. Seems pointless.


    Let's face it.. society, especially American, just isn't fit for NFs. How can service-oriented types thrive within a capitalistic culture that pretty much forces you to screw over others or "beat the system" to get ahead? Not to mention teaches you not to trust anybody.. even though we want to love them. ><

    You've no idea how much I'd love to just be able to travel around like Xena and Herc, helping people where I can. But no.. I have to have a job, and a house, and function in society somehow. And I certainly can't rely on people around me to help me out. (Not that they don't, or wouldn't.. just that I can't RELY on it, and certainly not stake my well being on it.)

    oh.. erm.. forgive the
