    Default INFPs having hypothetical conversations in our own heads

    I have a tendency to imagine having entire conversations with people I know. For a long time I thought it was some strange phenomenon unique to me, but a few days ago, one of my other INFP friends admitted to something similar. Now I'm beginning to wonder if it's a common occurrence for INFPs (or perhaps other types) to do this. It does seem like a very INFP thing to do.

    does anyone else do this, or have any insight on it?

    I used to do this more or less all the time basically. I do it not as much anymore as I used to though, which has to do though with my overall social situation.

    I don't know if this is only limited to INFPs, but I think I heard from other INFPs here that they do the same.

    yup, all the time.

    sometimes it's replaying past conversations and changing them around, sometimes it's rehearsing future ones that may or may not ever happen. and other times i just make shit up.

    Part of the reason why I am quiet is because I have already used all of my daily quota words with the people inside my own head.

    I do it too and I'm no INFP. An INTP I know does this as well.

    I only do this when I sense that there's a conflict with others without any chance of confrontation.

    I totally do this. Sometimes to my own detriment, i'll imagine a conversation as going MUCH worse than it does in reality.

    But yes, this is something i do all the time.

    Terrible things happen to good people every day.
    Consequentially, I am not one of the good people.
    I am one of the terrible things.

    Not an INFP, but I do this too... Often they escalate into arguments.
