    Okay, now, that was just spooky.

    They wouldn't listen to me even if I gave a warning. I've watched it happen before, and have a feeling that I'll be watching those things in the future too. Like now, but this time I think I'll have to jump in. She means too much for me not to.

    I'll readily admit they're not my greatest moments really.

    It reminds me how Dostoevsky's second wife described him as a very irritable and spiteful person; and how "he could not restrain his spite" at various times.

    I can relate to that all too readily.
    I hate to say that when I loose my temper, the defence mechanism I use against the shame after it is.. keeping up some of he anger. One of my worst qualities really.

    It's the worst when I actually scare people so bad that they'll avoid for a few days afterwards. But if they laughed I'd react even worse. The intensity of the emotion is something that's hard for others to handle,and I don't wonder why.

    Somehow I have to associate the literary style (not genre) of romanticism or postmodern to my thinking. Kierkegaard for one is as a writer considered postmodern. I can't remember the spesific name of the type I'm looking for here, it's in one of my books at home. But it could explain the 'darker' imagination especially when directed towards the darker sides of reality. I suppose the literary style would sound familiar to some NFs, INFJs also? It did to me, but I might be overthinking this.

    Rosa Liksom (and her 'Dark Paradise') came to mind througout the thread, that discussed the imagination.. But she is more of a post modern writer:
    The sun was shining behind the factory, coloring the water turquoise by the shore. A boy stood barefoot on the pier with a broom in his hands, squinting in the sunlight. On the pier there were chunks of meat being washed by small waves. The planks were sticky with blood, and white blubber floated on the edge of the shore in long strips. The boy felt small and dejected…He felt sad. All these ice-covered mountain, surrounded by water on every side, the sticky blood and stinking meat would be his fate, too. He would live only in order to lose his life.

    Yes, yes and yes. And I hate it when it happens, the finding something new part is even harder then.


    About the love of intensive music.. Anyone else love Disturbed? Some of the lyrics just strike me somehow, besides the music itself.

    I don't really consider Disturbed to be intense, but that's just relative to what I listen to.

    This would be more like it.

    Intensive is relative as is all.
    But if talking about death metal etc.. Bodom, Turisas, perhaps?
    Then again, I'd gravitate more towards Theatre of tragedy (first albums) or Tristania, which aren't part of that..
    Ah well.. I'd hate to go justifying my taste for lighter music again.

    ^ Ditto to all of the above here... losing my temper, especially. I can't seem to help myself when I fly off the handle. I spend a lot of time reining in my emotions, trying to be patient, but there's always the straw which breaks the camel's back, so to speak. It's not something I've ever been proud of, and my outbursts like that have come fewer and farther between, but I've scared off so many friends from wanting to be around me days after they witness an explosion... I always feel horrible after the fact and sometimes can't even recall the things I said, but know they were incredibly hurtful.
    Don't hate me because you're beautiful.

    While in the shower, you can't remember if you just washed your hair, so you wash it again.

    This happened to me yesterday. Something about being in the shower makes me zone out completely.

    :rolli: Sadly, yes. I do that on a regular basis.

    To add onto the cleanliness embarrassment---

    You know you're an INFJ if you've put body wash in your hand and used it as shampoo and have put shampoo on your loofah and used it as body wash...
