    Notice the insane characters seem to know what's really going on and and nobody else does until it's too late? Yes, soylent green really is people.

    Yes, Travo7, I hate the knowingness. I feel it isolates me from other people because I'm too busy putting them in a petri dish to really connect with them.

Well...quite suddenly...I wanted to hug every single damn person in the room taking part in that little mini discussion. I had no rational reason why. I just wanted to so badly. I went home and told this story to my roommate, who promptly teased me for the next week about wanting to jump unsuspecting programmers' bones or cuddle them.

    So, yeah. I do the same thing. Even down to the random e-mails to people I know well and care about.
    I get that a lot on this site sometimes, and I don't really know why. Probably because I'm the only one I know in real life that's interested in mbti, and I can talk about it here; people actually make an effort to understand me :/
    That means a lot, even if I don't know them, they don't know me, and we probably will never get beyond that.

    I do it almost subconsciously. Actually, that's basically what it is; I replay movies in my mind and sometimes get a real emotional response to it.
    That's why I can't watch scary movies. My ESTP friend doesn't really understand it, but horror movies seem to come to life to me sometimes, and the effects last so long because of the paranoia it sends me into...
    Want to make me a clingy, stressed out, sick, sad excuse of a person for a week or more? Make me watch a "good" horror movie.

    so im guessing you guys also get into movies so much you forget the screen is there? And you become sad when characters die in books? (DUMBLEDORE!!!)

    Well I don't read fiction too much, so I really can't say. If I'm reading about an interesting person and then they die, you could say that. I just don't really know how this could apply fully to non-fiction books; even though I tend to read them as if they were stories.

    Correct.

    I cryed at the end of Voyage of the Dawn Treader when Lucy and Edmond could never come back to Narnia. Books were/are my friends and more real to me than some people.

    Yes. I cried when Dumbledore died. And I cried through most of the last book for that series. And when Lucy and Peter were told they couldn't go back (oh I remember thinking clearly, "But it's not fair!"). And when I thought Frodo was dead in Cirith Ungol (I did something I normally don't do...I ran and grabbed the last book and checked ahead to see if he lived...it bothered me that much. ).

    I'm the same as Evi. Sometimes characters in books end up becoming close friends in my mind. Makes it horrible when the book ends and the story is over and I have to say goodbye to them.


    Here is one I'm wondering is just me:

    When ordering food, it is easy for someone to change your mind because you realise, on the spot, that this new idea is better and the result is everyone getting confused by what you want (including, probably, yourself) so you have to go back and summarise what you think you want. That was a long one. But I wondered yesterday if other people are as easily swayed to choose something else when it comes to ordering things. (I would need a firm wingman with me when buying cars. Not because I would overspend, but because I would get tired and confused from considering all the options the dealer would throw at me.)

    Yep! I do that pretty much every time unless it's a familar restaurant and I always order the same thing there. But yeah, I'm famous for, "Oh wait, I want that instead!!" and my, "Oooh! I didn't know they had that! I changed my mind."

    Yeah it's annoying when trying to order food when not only you have several good choices, and people are constantly giving you suggestions.
