I'm just trying to understand the thought process or the internal dialogue - basically, why is this appealing?
    Scary is a more fitting word than appealing. I didn't feel like doing out of hatred against my parents, but rather because there's a ridiculously thin line holding everybody in their place and keeping everything from going into chaos. It was when I figured that out that I got the weird feelings. It would take nothing more than 5 minutes to dramatically change everything in my life. I think I felt helpless fighting against the great gravity of such change. I had to rationalize the steps I had just gone through to show myself what a ridiculous thing it would be. (1) I love my family and (2) I wouldn't want to waste a part of my life in jail just to waste the rest being a complete loser with no chances of ever realizing his dreams.
    Now I just feel like JocktheMotie - I wonder what would happen. I did that before this event too, but the event was the wondering taken one step further - at least I think that. I'm not sure.

    It's been a year since it happened, but I wrote it down as good as my memory allows me.

    How do you think it would change you?
    I think it would change how I perceive myself. I wouldn't be able to decide - a monster or a man above the rest? I prefer neither when the decision has to made by looking at the fact that I murdered someone.

    They sound hella interesting, do you mind sharing some?
    Nothing special. Crap such as stopping time to steal or look up a woman's skirt (or worse), or stalking people while invisible. Just normal fantasies.


    I suck at writing my feelings down, because I can never be 100% sure of why I feel as I do. I could keep on rationalizing my feelings for hours.

It's like whenever I walk into a bank, I think about robbing it, or think about disarming the robber in front of me and being the hero.
    Yeah, it's not desire. If it were, it'd be a lot harder to control! I have imagined what the sensations would be if I ran a knife across someone's throat. It's never because I want to actually do this, but more that I know it's something people do and have done in the past, and am curious about what it feels like. It's only ever idle speculation, something to occupy my mind (though I admit, such things tend to occupy my mind more than is probably "normal").

    I've been thinking of ways to torture the monster that raped a close friend of mine a couple weeks ago.

    Wow guys, this is a bit intense, but I'm glad you expressed it. I, of course, have had many what if moments, as well. As a female who travels alone around the world, I always find myself sizing people up and looking for weak spots. I can honestly say, the thoughts never last for more than a second and I would never act on it unless directly threatened. But the thoughts are there just the same.

    And of course, who doesn't fantasize about bank robberies or stopping time?

    But the way you described it, Smiley, really made me do a double take. I'm very happy that you understand implications, and that those feelings are under control. It must be tough to love someone and still have those conflicting thoughts...

    Jock - unfortunately, about Sunday...
    Hahaha, just playin'! Of course - can't wait to meet you!!!

    I'm sure you don't, or you probably wouldn't have written it! hahaha...

    This is why you don't ask INTJs for our hidden thoughts.

    I've also had the fantasies about killing someone close to me or at random. I generally try to bury those thoughts because they scare the shit out of me. Its odd because I can go through the whole bloody ordeal in my head, but I find myself unable to watch an sort of torture film as I just don't enjoy watching people suffer...for the most part.

    Sometimes I get into a sort of unproductive moody rut (perhaps its my weak J) and during those times I may get a bit self-loathing, but I usually direct my my distaste out at the world, often by being a total ass to people around me.

    I don't know how I missed this post. I'm really sorry. Please be careful.

    some people go bad because they are given such a hard time about doing
    things right and making the right decisions and betray anyone to get that
    freedom they think they are being denied...

    effort to succeed doesn't go unpunished

    Things that you thought were just fictional plots in books or film have hap-
    pened to real people (just in different context)

    Disapearing without warning when I was younger is something I have done several times. It's only fun while the money lasts.
