    If you stop and think about it, you can figure out what it's trying to tell you, and then it will go away.

    Like cars are important, they just get you from point a to point b. What's important is MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!! (Exclamation points for emphasis! )

    Actually I like to talk about other people too if the person I'm talking to knows that person. Keeps me from feeling self absorbed ( Even though I AM.... )

    I think it might be an INFJ thing that I have been asked for directions several times a month for about 20 years, even when (or perhaps especially when) I'm new to a place myself. And that often I can give them. And that when I've been to a place just once I can find it again, sometimes years later, and even in the dark: intuition as Human Compass. Or perhaps I'm just very lucky to have been born with that and it's nothing to do with Type.

    There's another useful talent - seeing the end of last night's dream as soon as you lie down and close your eyes the following night, like picking up on a cliffhanger episode - that I've only ever heard of in INFJs, but again for all I know it's widespread/common.
    I still have a great deal to learn here.
    I have the direction sense thing too, exactly as you describe it. I think it's an aspect of intuition, since I'm hopeless at remembering specific details such as street names. I've known other dominant N-types with a similar intuitive direction sense, including my ENTP partner and my best INTJ friend.

    As for the dream thing - I do that too, but not on separate nights. I can wake up from a really great dream and then deliberately re-enter it, but only on the same night.

    My mind has always been like that. To gain some control over it, I imagine myself as a DJ, mixing and matching tunes (or thoughts) to suit my mood or current circumstances. My inner DJ is one of my most useful internal archetypes - give it a try yourself - you may be amazed at the results!

    Thanks, now I at least now that infjs DO need other people. I always thought they lead their troops on their own

    Hell yeah; I know I need other people. I'd get lost in the bowels of my own mind and never be able to return if it weren't for other people.

    THAT would be scary.

    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    I have the direction sense thing, too. I don't always remember street names but I remember a certain colored building at the corner or an unusual tree. I remember buildings that look as if they are haunted or buildings that look as if they have stories... and I can usually find my way after being there once.
    But then again, I walk everywhere and am close to everything so I can see it and touch it and smell it.
    Once I was told that, even though I am an isfp, there is a little infj inside of me.
    So... you can talk to my inner infj if you like.

    Yep, and they have to be authentic. It's just no good to believe I feel a certain way about something, I have to know it's the truth. I can't stand the idea that one day I'll find out that I never actually had the conviction at all. I don't think I could live with that.
