    Well actually I can experience this, but I have made a habit of making myself a mental map of the parking lot, and drawing the path in my mind's map, of how I got from the car to the store, and then when I leave the store, I pull out my mental map and follow my mental drawing back to my car. My only problem with this approach, it happens sometimes at work, is I sometimes accidentally pull up the wrong mental map, and then feel kind of lost when the car isn't where I remember it.

    I am curious. Do many INFPs think in pictures? Something I experience now and then in parking lots: I will see someone wandering around in a parking lot, and I think to myself, "I wonder what car he is looking for", and in response I get a mental image of a car, and eventually when he finds his car it looks like that mental image I got when I asked myself about it. I would swear that I can read a person's mind if he thinks in pictures.

    Does anyone else experience this? Is thinking in pictures common among INFPs?

    Not only do I think in pictures - I think in compete 'realities' - the inner world is complete with sight sound, temperature and emotions. Sort of a complete reality all its own that just happens to coincide with the outer world via the portal that is me. Sometimes I can pick up on other peoples inner realities - but it seems only sometimes.

    That actually is one of the things where I cannot relate so much to other INFPs, or at least descriptions from INFPs I sometimes read here in forums. Sometimes I think in pictures, but it is not that easy for me (I don't get a very clear image, mostly only a weak one), and I don't try it all of the time, only with some specific things.

    I think this is a primary way that I read other people. Sure body language reveals a lot but when the person is not in front of me, I go inside to my inner world and send out my feelers to coexperience other's inner world. Is that extroverting with FI?

    You know you're an INFP when you dig out an old book/movie you have not read/watched in years just to reminisce a specific scene because it fits your current mood

    When you watch a whole movie just to see that ONE part that you love, and then walk away as soon as it's over.

    When you get upset for being stood up by your boyfriend/girlfriend...who you weren't even really going out with, except in your own mind.

    When you feel like everyone has control over your life...except you. (Or maybe that's just me... )

    When someone asks you for help and offers 15$, then after helping with all the heavy lifting your really sad and disappointed in yourself for not being more assertive when you refused the money.

    When you're convinced that nobody can feel things as strongly as you do, and you pity them for it, because feeling that intensely is so delicious.
