    I typically only do it when in the heat of frustration or intentionally trying to be silly...
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    Sometimes things feel more epic than they are in reality XD

    Agreed, but I'd say my principles are internally based (Fi).

    I am not a "dramatic" person in that I don't often express feeling in a passionate way unless prodded or with someone I trust implicitly. I will feel emotions strongly, and there may be a larger internal response than the situation itself warrants, but situations are often symbolic for something that is significant. In which case, my emotions serve as a good compass in analyzing my own feelings and creating ideals. Problems occur when you react on such emotion before sorting out what it means - but I think that's less of a problem for introverts than extroverts.
    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)

    Ha, I actually downplay things a lot.

    I guess I am dramatic at times, but nobody else know about it because I keep it in. Expressing it is too much work...and most of the time, I know how irrational it is, so I just wait until it blows over. Well, and most of the "dramatic" things in my life have to do with my anxieties, I suppose.

    I usually get really annoyed with people who are outwardly dramatic. Control yo-selves!

    I am certainly no drama queen but I do admit I often hope and pray something exciting and crazy will happen at any one moment. This also means I am constantly imagining (mostly to myself) that ordinary events are actually the begining of something really extraordinary/profound/shocking/significant because I want them to be. For this reason, going fishing with me can be trying for others...

    I am totally aware of my doing this but I'm certainly not delusional or inclined to externally manufacture drama by messing with people etc, nor am I naturally a hysterical person. I guess I'm kinda fascinated with that moment, just before something dramatic happens. Everything is going along as per usual, then suddenly, out of the blue your world is tipped upside down; that instantaneous transition that could change your life and make you wonder how things were ever normal.

    I can't speak for other INFPs, though. Maybe I'm just bored with my life...
