    Default Ever have these N Moments?

    First off, I'm not 100% sure this is an iNtuitive trait, or rather just a weird psychological phenomenon..

    So here's the deal..sometimes I'll be doing something..talking to someone, hearing about something, reading about something, whatever it may be where I am gaining information, a symbol will come to me relating to the topic, which comes without any thinking..I do it unconsciously without even trying to..and when I do realize it, I am absolutely astonished that my brain can pick out a metaphor related to what I may be paying attention to without out me even purposely trying to..another phenomenon that occurs to me sometimes, which I'm sure is an N trait, and can occur when I'm taking in information, and without signaling my brain to do it, I will spontaneously get a verse of lyrics from a song that will instantly come to me related to what I may be thinking about, and not just lyrics about what I'm actually thinking about, but lyrics with metaphors and symbols, which is amazing, and I never intend it to happen, but it does all of the time..

    Anyways, I hope you understand what I'm saying, and I want to know if this ever occurs to anyone else..

    -I will also be posting this on the NT section, to see what those rationals can tell me (hoping that copying and pasting this thread somewhere else is allowed).

    I've done this before.. I'm a very symbolic-oriented person, so I definitely relate symbols and messages to my daily life often.

    But I do it unconsciously, they come naturally without any intentions, and I'm like "WTF" when they first pop up, but then I think about it, and am utterly amazed.

    Well good for you? I can't relate, usually when my mind wonders to something, I'm right there with it.

    All the time. Actually I don't feel I understand a concept until I can make an analogy for it.

    ah, sorry I guess I didn't mean it the way you might have interpreted it, I was just putting that out there, to see if anyone specifically could relate, but it's pretty much a dead thread..I wasted my time..but thanks for your post!

    Sometimes my mind will reach conclusions somewhat subconsciously. Like your sitting there thinking about something, and it's as if someone hits the fast-forward button for a few seconds. Then you're like "Woa, what just happened?"
    And sometimes my mind will automatically attach metaphors and analogies to situations.
    Not really images or symbols though...

    Good way to put it, I get the results before I think about the information.

    It's just as amazing as the repetition of the same smiley after four words.
