    I would call its effect on me "stiffling". Its like all my neurones shift into warp speed.

    They need to slow down a bit before I can form concrete thoughts again.

    BTW, Sky, a glass of orange juice contains just about as much sugar as a glass of regular coke

    Yes, but somehow it makes me feel a whole lot better than sugar water with bubbles.

    It might be all the extra things in soda/coffee that make my brain go 'blah.' I know an INFJ girl who gets all wired and buzzed if she drinks orange juice. Maybe the 'purer' source of natural sugar doesn't interfere with my/our brain so much?

    They both contain the same form of sugar.

    Don't underestimate the power of suggestion. Many people claim that they gain mental clearity after a change in their diet. That's probably true, because if you expect a certain type of food will make you feel a certain way, whether good or bad, then so it happens.

    So my diet recommendation is: eat what you believe is healthy.
    And don't get paranoid about additives and so on.

    It's the thought that you eat unhealthy foods that messes with your brain chemistry, too.

    You know you're an infj when you can answer the question: "How are you feeling?" with a detailed description of how you're feeling physically, but get puzzled with what it is that you're, um, feeling, internally ?

    You know, I was just talking to my s.o. about this yesterday. I have a lot of Si doms (isxj) in my life; either as friends or family, and they all are prone to environmental and culinary and pharmaceutical intolerances/allergies, and at times hypochondriasis (when they are stressed), which I attribute to Si. However, the really weird part of it is this: They will actually get physical manifestations as well! Like hives, or rashes, or blisters, or irritable bowel syndrome, or headaches, or fatigue, or, etc. So, of course, they and their family and their care providers all really think that they suffer from X allergy. And if I did not see that they ALL happen to be Si dom, I would too. Yet I wonder if it's not just their mind telling the body to play tricks on them, so that they have validation for their sicknesses, which feel so real to them.

    Any one else notice this with Si doms?

    I am super ENFP (Si is my inferior function) and I feel very prone to this. I think it might relate to a need to be "centered." Many of these problems seem related to the immune system.

    Let me tell you this scenario is a living nightmare: when you recieve advice from a different point of view (family & care provider specialists) every time and pressure from each of them to strictly adhere. Either you end up trying to follow everyone's advice at once or you just do what you know is best (and after so much input, how could it still be a mystery?) It's pretty scary, knowing intangible things are very likely the cause of your physical symptoms and grasping for the clarity to correct it. Getting past it is one of the most empowering things ever, though

    Everyone has their own list of what is more or less toxic to them based on their chemistry and natural preferences!

    Me too. I systematically miss exits on expressways because of it. Even if it's a route I drive on a regular basis, I'll still zone out and find myself miles from where I was supposed to turn. Music helps me, too (if I'm not singing at the top of my lungs, then I'm probably zoning out).

    Caffeine almost always has this affect on me. Sometimes- if I drink a lot of it- I'll become maniacal talker for about 15 minutes, but then I'm out like a light. It seems to be more true when more sugar is involved.

    You mean, as in "How are you feeling" emotionally? Then TOTALLY. Other people seem to know when I'm happy/sad/angry before I do. I'll sense a kind of vague dissonance, then later realize I was angry (or sad or whatever). In the moment, though, I'm too busy isolating which variables are causing me to feel the dissonance in the first place; slapping a label on the dissonance is almost the furthest thing from my mind.

    I would have had to pay to take a test if I didn't pass it the third time. There was some pressure

    I think I physically feel more energy, but my thoughts don't feel as sharp. It usually happens with coffee rather than soda. It isn't completely reliable either. Odd.

    Yeah, I get this. I usually feel frustration more than other emotions. Maybe we know the deeper where-from of the emotion so we know what the emotion actually is. My host family uses 'Hermostunut' 'nervous' for anything relating to actual nervousness or frustration. Maybe its a Finnish culture thing, but to me frustration and nervousness are different. I feel the first much more often when I can't think clearly or cant find an answer to some problem. OR knowing their's a problem when I don't know what it is. (Which seems to be an INFJ thing too?)
