Also: I don't know what it is, exactly, but when I'm in that mode I also resist the notion of external feedback, and it becomes distasteful, because I somehow don't want them to influence my thoughts... .. I'm having a hard time articulating this. Maybe too it's tied to the fact that I don't have a solid set of beliefs/foundation, so while I'm in this mode I'm trying to construct something solid...of my own making...of my own independent thought...getting external feedback 'prematurely' would influence my Pure Thought, which is distasteful to me (because I DO easily shift perspective and sometimes I fear that trait and being 'swayed'), I want it to be discovered by me alone ...lol, this seems so silly as I'm typing this, but what can I say, I think this is what I think when I'm in totally introverted mode.
lol. Yeah, this goes with what I was just typing above; when I'm not in that mode, it seems laughable that I get into that state where I actually don't want to go external; it doesn't even make much sense to not keep getting external 'data' in the moment to work with or help us to hone in more clearly. And you're right, our pure thought can lead us to some serious crazy.... this occurred recently for me.... I was told my observations/ 'data' was good, justified, accurate, etc, but my perception/conclusion about all of it wasn't. ( To be fair: I got out of my internal loop because I knew I was getting nowhere and knew I needed to go external - my act of externalizing just illustrated (via feedback) my knowledge already that I was full of conjectures but nothing solid)Originally Posted by the state i am in
Relate too to being impermeable to criticism. Trying to find all the loopholes, all the possible things others might say or others might counter with.Originally Posted by Z Buck McFate
