    Hah, I wish sex would get me out of my head! I'd probably have a much better sex life!

    Physically playing with my kids, yoga, hiking, sports, going to the movies or the theatre (watching movies or TV at home is useless...I zone out immediately), socializing with people I don't see every day, singing, scrapbooking...

    But I'm usually too busy being cerebral to do any of those things

    When I was a kid I really enjoyed diving and at those times my attention was fully focused on what was in front/under me. Under the water surface was a whole different world and I was all up for exploring it.

    Another thing that does that is painting. Since I started with it a couple months ago, it`s become vital for my mental peace. Especially accompanied by some instrumental music or Sigur ros playing softly in the background...That`s my happy time

    Other times I noticed my head is unusually quiet is at times of fatigue or when I have a migraine. I`m not in or out of my head, but my thoughts just get kind of hazy so I don`t bother with them too much. However, once I fall asleep and the dreaming state begins I`m busy again.

    So I guess doing things that really fascinate me or make the little kid in me happy do the trick for me.

    Singing. Tap-dancing. Preferably with others as other posters have mentioned too.

    Sometimes I forget to think when sorting trough small, detailed things, like my childrens' toys, photos, beads, clothes, doing something with colors. Only it has to be somewhat routine, since I get very much in my head in an exhausting way if I constantly have to make tedious decisions about them, like what to cook, what to wear, what to throw away, what to draw, what to put where etc. (= meaning that no, my home is NOT tidy).

    I think the focus required in doing and memorising precise physical acts is about the only thing that can shut up my ever-busy/bitchy Ne for a while. There's no room for the usual tangents of association if I want to keep up with the others.

    In functional terms I suppose these are my short periods of inferior Si taking the stage. It's the function opposite Ne and their use would theoretically be mutually exclusive.

    I noticed that many INFJs have mentioned full tilt physical challenge as their preferred way to stop thinking. That would be a similar pattern, with inferior Se providing a short break from Ni?

    Yes

    It's funny how reality feels surreal to me, even if I am engaged with it and enjoying it. Then later, I will relive the experience in my head & it will feel "more real".

    Good sex, movies, and playing with kids (most of the time). That's about it.........

    back in the day it was baseball, or like a big skateboard tour thing. [tony hawks boom boom huck jam]

    i was always so quiet even as a kid, but that would usually get me yelling and shouting. it was ridiculous and looking back on it now i embarrass myself. im alot less frivolous now haha.

    these days the thing that really gets my muse out in physical form is skateboarding, snowboarding, longboarding. i definatly have my own style and its very distinct. its a very visceral sport once you learn to do it how you want.

    I know you think I'm crazy,
    but most people they can't tell.

    Acting like an idiot.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.
