    Okay, um...yeah, I do lucid dream, not always, but lots of times. Sometimes, I dream normal or at least I guess it's normal. My beliefs...some of them "could" be classified as obscure, depending on who's doing the classifying.

    About writing: Hmmm...I don't really "do" anything to get to a place where I'm ready to write or be submersed in that other world.

    When I write I sit down at the keyboard and the world around me ceases to exist for the most part; it is like I am a water hose and the stuff I'm writing is being transported from this other place and I'm just recording it, like how water flows from a distant source through a water hose. I have this movie playing in my head and I am just trying to type it as fast as it plays in my mind. I don't do anything to prepare. I just sit down and bam! There it is...a scene from a story and when I'm driving down the road, sometimes I'm seeing this story in my head and hearing the characters talk. I don't even feel like it's really me creating the stories. I'm just "reporting" them.

    It's kind of hard to explain but maybe you get it. Maybe you have the same thing happen sometimes. I mean after all, don't ESTPs share the same functions in reverse order and if that is the case then maybe listening to music is the way you tap into the Ni which I think is the culprit in much story writing. It's like it's collected all of this info that I didn't even know I knew and suddenly there's this whole other world created and I just have to tell about it. However, on the other hand, when I'm getting ready to do something that is very much in the here and now, I have to "psyche myself up" first. Like if I'm going to do a rappel down the face of a cliff or a free hang or if I'm going to put on a show, I have to do a bunch of physical stuff to get me rooted in the moment, so I can let go. I have to somehow release all kinds of mental tension. So maybe that's me drumming up my Se because maybe it's like your Ni and it needs a little help sometimes.

    EDIT: Oh, and about this question:
    So my question is, am I just wading feet deep into a puddle on the roof of a skyscraper? Is there a whole other realm I haven't journeyed into yet that I'm missing out on?
    You just have to be who you are and do what works for you. It could be that the puddle on the skyscraper is a universe all in and of itself. Who's to say? Maybe each type, and each person for that matter, has his or her own whole other realm.

    I'm very proficient at lucid dreaming. Probably more than anyone you'll ever interact with.

    @DJ Arendee- yeah, I lucid dream on occasion, but not with much control.

    As for your imagination, if a book becomes an alternate universe for you, then I'd say you're not missing out on too much. But then again, I'm not inside your head.

    I've never tried with another INFJ, but I have a very close INTJ friend and we seem to have a weird, mind connection and always seem to know what the other is thinking/feeling.

    hmm, INFJ 2's are kinda rare online. I meet plenty of them out in real life, I think most of them think they're ENFJ's. how sure are you of your type, @miauwington?
    100% INFJ. I did different mbti tests over the past 10 years. Always INFJ. It's mostly the other way around in my case: Other people mistake me for an extravert. I'm very talkative for an introvert. I have a tendency to act a bit ENFJ.

    I killed my boogie man in a lucid dream when I was 8 after having nightmares for almost a year. I nuked him to be exact, laff, the imagination of an 8 year old I lost the ability shortly after that. Almost like it was a defense mechanism of some sort. Nowadays I'm mostly a non recaller when it comes to my dreamstate *shrugs*

    I would second all of this.

    I don't really work at lucid dreaming; I do enough of it (which isn't much) to satisfy my desire to explore the adventures which are my dreams and wake myself up if I have to. For me dreaming is a time I get to relax my mind, so I don't like the idea of trying to do mental "work" while I'm asleep. Also I like for that time to be for the universe to tell me what I need to know, so trying to control what I dream might be counter productive in that regard.
