    I almost never put cash in my purse, but keep it, instead, in my pants pocket. My theory: I've lost my purse many, many times in all kinds of places, but I've never lost my pants.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Today when I was taking a shower I slathered the conditioner on my hair before I realized I hadn't used any shampoo yet.

    I can be extremely scatter brained. For example, I currently work in an office setting. Our xerox machine and file cabinets are in the same room. I walked into the room with the intention of filing a resident's contract, but instead I walked over to the copy machine and made 5 copies for some unknown reason.

    I refer to me being scatter brained as putting myself on "autopilot". When I'm stuck doing repetitive things over and over I just turn my autopilot switch on and absorb myself in my thoughts. Most of the time I do I pretty good job, though.

    The best example I can think of: once I was intending to get a glass of chocolate milk, but ended up somehow grabbing a bowl and filling that up instead. Also I've attempted to put various things in the refrigerator at one time or another, like a jar of peanut butter and a stuffed animal. All this is the result of a mind that won't stop going off on random tangeants, which tends to make me forget what I'm doing.
    *nods*

    I don't lose things and I don't forget important things, but when there's a constant stream of consciousness running in your head, you do the stupidest things...sometimes you're just on autopilot...e.g. when I clean the table, I *always* (day after day after day, you have to see it to believe it, people would deem me retarded ) forget to leave the water on it and sometimes I have to go back several times to where I put it because I take it away, I put it back, I take it away again, I put it back etc, these mundane tasks are the worst as they hold no interest whatsoever for me and I am instantly off thinking when I have to do them. This might also be why I'm so sloooow with stuff like doing the dishes...it's just a secondary thing I do while I experience much cooler things in my head. I can also just go blank in the middle of a conversation...this happens just because, but also because something else has struck me and I'm thinking on a higher level while still trying to converse with the other person on a secondary level.

    It's so hard to resist the tug of the mind...when I'm with my parents and my brother eating dinner (not super interesting most of the time), I just float off automatically and they constantly remind me to "come back down to earth".

    I don't know if you guys can multi-task, but I can't because I'm essentially multi-tasking all the time with what's going on up in my head.

    Heh, you've just mentioned the exact same thing. The knights who say Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiii.

    I cant multitask at all. I get focused on what I'm doing and then I forget the other thing. It gets annoying (I have an ENFP friend who multitasks like a fiend, I get jealous sometimes.)

    That comment really made me chuckle...

    I am very scatty sometimes, mostly when I am under pressure and have lots of different things on my mind. I actually find this happens more at work than at home too.

    I have to admit, among all my faults, foibles, and quirks, I have managed to avoid being scatterbrained. It's never too late, though!!!

    I'm not really scatterbrained either. It's almost like I have blinders on when there's something I'm doing and nothing gets in my way. In fact when I have to stop what I'm doing to answer a question or do something else that's asked of me it really irritates me.

    I'd say on the occasion where I'm not on some sort of mission to get something done, yes, I can get distracted. I suppose if I'm under a lot of stress, that will keep me from staying focused too.

    Although now that I think about it, if I'm doing some thing very routine I'll forget one of the steps in the process. ex: I'll leave my ipod in the car when I go to the gym even though I ALWAYS workout with my ipod. I suppose getting to the gym and working out is what the 'mission' is in that situation.

    Anyway, that's me.

I won't even be thinking about the words I accidently put in either...it's pretty frustrating.
    I do this as well. I thought I was the only one.

    I also learned how to type in a weird way. I took formal typing classes in Highschool but they never stuck and touch typing had to be learned through years of using a keyboard. I don't use the home row and I seem to favor my first three fingers on each hand (index, middle, ring). Instead of memorizing where all the keys are, over the years I've come to know which finger movements will result in the words I am after. If its a word I don't type often I have to slow way down and think of where each key is located.
