Don't know how many of you go through this, but it seems like whenever I get dead set focused on a task that I am doing, I almost lose sense of what is going on around me, it's almost like I get lost on autopilot whenever I am doing a task, or listening to a lecture and my brain goes off millions of miles away from the present moment. It's one of those moments where for a minute you can go off far away and practically not hear what is going on around you until a key word is mentioned in a lecture and then poof, you're back in the present moment. This also happens at home where I can become literally engrossed in an activity (such as reading or playing music), and then 2 hours fly by, and it feels like just a couple minutes.
I do find that in day to day stuff, even when I try to focus on the present moment, I end up getting sucked into my mind and end up focusing on my inner thoughts, this endless babble in my brain that goes on and on and on... one stream of thought leads to another, then goes to another, and then it branches outward to all the different angles of a problem or concept I am thinking of. It feels like a gravitational pull of a black hole, pulling me into my head and aspects of the present moment fade. Awareness of my body and sensory information in physical constructs of time and space end up becoming lost because I am so far inside my head.
INFJs on here, do you experience similar things like this? And if so, how does it feel for you, and what amusing stories do you have regarding getting lost in an Ni-Ti loop?
