My imagination is just incredibly overwhelming...but I take 'enhancers' and as an animation major it's hard to go far without a heightened sense of creativity.
It could be type related, but I'm thinking interpreting their own imagination differs between types, or something.
I wouldn't presume to say everyone's susceptible to losing their grip, but "enhancers" do not suit me. I'm not sure if they ever made me more creativity anyways. I think I'm better off being a more focused person.
It kind of scares me to think what it'd be like to be a Ne dominant on "enhancers". Be careful
I always had a very active imagination. But when in grad school I decided i needed to focus so i decided to stop daydreaming. I spent a couple of years where everytime I started daydreaming I would think about something realistic and practical. Towards the fifth year I decided it was okay to daydream and it was like taking crack! I forgot how much fun it is to just let your brain go play.
I was very good at not being afriad of the dark or stuff like that-I would sort of talk myself through it. But once I was in a small tornado, while in a car. For a few years after that I found freeze up in terror whenever I went outside and it was msity and rainy. Totally neurotic.
I have very rich imagination and yes I think that it has something to do with my type since it works in the opposite way. I am very good at scaring or making people uncomfortable. (at least that is what I have been said)
Once I came to the parents of one other boy from the neighbourhood and told tham that their older son will kill/beat up their younger son. And of course they both panically ran back into their house since they knew that these two are volatile.
Also I am pretty good at being "invisible". When I was younger it was normal for me to get dressed in black and spy on my neighbours and tease them by whistling from a tree or forrest late at night.
Or I turned of all of the lights in the house so that my parents think that there is no one at home. Plus I used to hide behind the door so that I can jump at them from behind. (I did this to other people as well)
Once I knew a girl that run away from her abusive boyfriend and his friends. So I was thinking about sending her some E-mails and pretending that I was him and that I will drop by at her place in a next few days. (but I gave up from the idea)
Also I am pretty sure that some of you have conservative male friends or coworkers that share some E-mail with their parents or mates. Which means that if you have their E-mail you can make an account on some porn site with their E-mail and make sure that they send them some porn every week and then watch if this will effect their relationships. If you are scared that you will get caught use some public computer in a near by town.
Firecrackers can be really good for scaring people. Especially if you save some of them for use "our of season. In most places you can still buy the paper that is used for making your own cigarettes. So what you should do is put this slow burning paper over the end/edge of firecracker and roll it. So that you get a slow burning fuse. Which allows you to detonate it while you are no way near it. Which means that the options are limitless.
My favorite joke requires about 30 firecrackers with long fuse. Which you light up and throw around someones house somewhere at 2 AM. In other words I can promise you that you will scare the living crap out of your victim(s). Since nobody will be around the house or in the backyard, there will be alot of random explosions around the house over a few minutes and it is middle of May.
Also more then once I used to hide in a calm sea at night but just so that the upper half of my head is above water. So that you can spy on people that are hanging around the beach/coast. But if you see a drunk chick going home all alone you can start yelling and swearing at her and you have a fairly good odd that you will scare her if you are not too far from the coast and if everything is quiet, but she can't see you in the dark water.
Or you can do something much more simple like diving beneath people and then grab their feet and pul them suddenly down.
Or you can take a black and smoth material that looks like shark flipper and puncha a two holes in order to pull two ropes which you need to tie the the flipper around your stomach while it is at your back. Plus make sure that you are dressed into darker and that you have flippers of your own in order to have enough speed and that you do don't have to show your limbs. But make sure that no one around is armed otherwise you could get hurt. If nothing just because you scare tourists.
Once I have hidden myself in a school locker room designed for the girls and waited for them (girls from my class) to come in, lock the door and take their cloths off.
And then I showed them that they have overlooked something.
What can I say? Some of them made it clear that none of the boys will see them in their underwear. So I made the analysis about which day of the week I can get there first if I run throught out the entire school and have the time to hide in the abandoned shower room.
Like others stated, I too would contend that an extremely (over)active imagination is a sign/symptom of heavy Ne use.
I guess it could be called a blessing or a curse; try to have fun with it, put it to good use, and perhaps most importantly of all try to avoid ever using it to ruminate on negative or escapist stuff too much. (I have issues with the latter...)
I have found INTJs and ISFPs are susceptible to their imaginations. Not that they have the best imaginations but rather because they are susceptible to it.
Fi seem more (for lack of a bettter word) dangerously susceptible to their imagination in general.

Ne is my most dominant function, and my imagination is so-so. The world seems such a weird wonderful place at is, I rarely feel the need to suppliment it. Most of my imagnation goes into figuring out ways to subvert reality rather than escape... but I suppose that's an escape in itself, isn't it?
EDIT: I've reconsidered, I have reason to believe that my imagination has long past overflowed the confines of my skull.
