    But many introverts, who aren't as quick on the verbal comeback, will ponder for hours what they "should have said" (or done). This may involve recreating the conversation in imagination using events that are more pleasing to the individual introvert.
    5s and 9s are supposedly the "what if?" kind of people, I'm sure other types do it too though (4s?). Wondering what they should have said is a "what if?" excercise, no?

    What about Sixes? "What if he is lying? What if there's something sinister going on? What if we run out of produce? What if this is a ruse? What if she forgets to lock the doors?"

    does anyone else do this, or have any insight on it?
    I spend a lot of time doing this.
