    I think I developed a lot of this as a matter of survival when I was a child living with my INFJ mother, who couldn't find her way out of a paper bag. (she was the most purely sensotard person I think I ever knew.) Unfortunately my sense of direction was one of the things lost to the brain injury. I can still give directions to paratransit drivers when traveling to my INTJ's house, but I go there every day. When I learned to drive again after the brain injury, I used to get lost in parking garages a lot, but could drive 4 adolescent boys (with Metallica blasting) 400 miles to NW New Mexico without mishap. Go figure...
    It's a blessing...and a curse.

    You know you're an INFJ when the worst possible question someone can ask is, "What are you thinking?" ....like in a new relationship-type situation...

    This is one of the only times my thoughts stop and I have nothing to say...

    ^^ Oh yeah. It seems like my mind is constantly turning over different dilemmas and ideas, and yet, the moment someone actually asks me what's going on up there, I have no idea what to say. I might as well not have been thinking at all.

    While, I'm not good with street names, I have an excellent sense of direction. Its just that instead of street names, I usually use landmarks to know where I'm going. Of course, I've noticed an improvement on my ability to use street names when giving directions.

    Or wrote it down earlier.

    I seem to write the best stuff really late at night when I'm only half conscious. I guess that's when my subconscious comes out to play. lol

    Exactly! I'm not aware of any of the street names either but I use landmarks and I really have to plan my route ahead in my head or even look at a map when the place is new to me.

    And I can also relate to the subconscious Eureka! moments. I always keep a pen and paper near my bed because I've had some seriously good ideas coming to me just at the moment when I'm about to fall asleep at night or just before waking up in the morning. And I know I have to write them down because I'll never remember them afterwards but at that moment, they're just so amazingly clear. Eureka!

    Yes on both accounts. In fact I think I stated the latter myself in this thread.

    So you could say that the second point of my post actually occurred in this thread?


    I use landmarks as a map too. I remember the bend in the road and sorta remember what's beyond it. I kind of group the whole town in 'bunches' of where I go. If I haven't been there, it doesn't exist in my mind-map (Which happens to be drawn in crayon... ) I think the mental map is just a bunch of circles drawn juxtaposed in a similar place that they would be on a real map. Inside the circle would be a simple list of stuff I go to that bubble for.

    I was recently asked what I was thinking. It was a rare moment where I wasn't. I had just come out of a book (The last Dark Tower book as a matter of fact ) and was in a sort of staring daze where my mind settles into pseudo reality again.

    You know you're an Int-jay when you pause in the middle of a book to think of what could have happened if X happened. (Its the reason I don't like movies as much as books, pausing just bugs people)

    - you never turn your back on people/ scenes that had once helped you, and it makes you sad when you see other people easily dismiss their past(s).
    - you want to trust people, because you're fascinated by what other people will do with your trust and you genuinely want to trust others.
    - you desperately want to help people who have 'lost their way.'
    - it's very hard to not find a 'good side' of a person, and it really hurts when other people can't see it at all.
    - you feel so much for other people but display NONE of the affection you feel for them (this is probably just me, being a very strong N & F with two ISTJ parents) because you've been brought up in a world that deems that 'innapropriate behavior,' and you don't want to violate other people's personal space/ rights so you back off completely.
    - you hate asking other people for anything, but you love to help other people and would never turn anyone down (and none of your favors are reciprocated).
    - everyone you know would make a great character in the novel you're meaning to write.
    - you wish people knew what you really think about them.
    - sometimes you look at people and imagine what they would have been like if they lived in another time, and how well they would have fit into that time.
    - you sometimes wish you were Harry Potter, Frodo, the kids in Narnia (), because deep down you long for adventure and magic, and you want to save the world in a more obvious way than you can in the real world.
    - you have 100000 memories in your head of moments that you had that were beautiful, but also very symbolic, and you would love to make them tangible (as paintings or something).
    - the saddest moment of your life was when you realised that the people in your head weren't real, and therefore not meaningful (again... maybe just me, ).
    - you try to collect real memories.
    - you feel as though you truely understand someone, even just by the look in their eyes, but you often question how much you really know.

    oh and hello everyone!

    I agree with about 90% of that

    The sensotard definition was wrong. It is low awareness of senses, not surroundings. Like when you forget to eat at the right time, and don't get round to exercise then wonder why you feel slow, and all that stuff.

    I'm an ENFP, and we probably have higher awareness and understanding of our surroundings than any type. But we are still sensotards.
