    I just bump into a lot of things, and I tend to sit on people's laps in the subway by accident.

    Yes, but its usually on account of my voice being a "stoners voice"
    That and the fact that I am sensotarded to the max.
    Ive taken off my shirt and put it in the fridge while lost in thought.

    Same here. I can come off as absentminded, but it's more "he's focused on something else" not high/drunk, etc. I can't think of an instance where anyone's ever even suggested it.

    Serves me right for trying to include others in my thought processes.
    Yeah, maybe we'd have it easier if we'd keep our mouths shut.

    Years ago one backstabbing colleague of mine was after my position and told my boss I was taking drugs to get high (untrue). My boss believed this and confronted me. Luckily I could prove the accuser wrong and later on the person was caught running similar smear campaigns on other people and gaining a really dishonest reputation.

    But the thing that made my boss buy that was the fact that I have a lot of energy (positive, I hope). He couldn't believe that someone is like that naturally. So I guess I'm naturally high.

    One time, I was at TGI Friday's with some friends. I was sober. We went to that particular Friday's because one of our mutual friends was working there that evening. We met up with him after he got off work. He gave me a receipt that was given to him by a couple sitting a table away from us. On the back was written:

    "I think your friend w/ the beard is REALLY stoned... Have a good night."

    Then again, I was a bit tired, and I do live in good ol' conservative/traditional North Carolina



    I hate this place

    I have two INTP collegues who I think very highly of. Both can come off as total pot heads as they are not really with us most of the time.

    I met the first at a dinner when he interviewed. He came in from california and my ESTJ boss just babbled the whole time. I thought wow, we are about to get a pothead from california, but was cool as he seemed really smart. He is actually morman and has never drank or smoked in his life. However he said everyone tells him looks stoned all of the time. People at work thought he was odd at first and I would just tell them, no he is really smart and is thinking.

    I do get this from time to time. I'm just not "with" the rest of world sometimes, and people may pick up on it. I laugh to myself, laugh at things people say that aren't inherently funny, yet contrast or mesh superbly with a current train of thought and I'll laugh. Throw in some sensotard moments [I tried to turn on my TV with my car key remote the other day] and I definitely got that in high school. Funny because I never touch drugs, [I know I have an addictive personality for some things, mainly adrenaline and experience addictions] because I have personal control issues and I'm paranoid enough as it is, I don't need hallucinogenic help.

    Also, I did even get put on suicide watch in high school, which I found very amusing [my ESF mother, of course, did not]. Schizoidal tendencies, lack of sleep, palpable aura of boredom, and a habit of including nihilistic song lyrics in my AIM away messages compelled somebody to report me. Never found out who that was.

    yeah, i always had people asking me if i was high, I just kind of letted it slide after a while.
    Everytime I don't sleep well, people assume i took something, it really gets old sometimes, I don't even like weed and never did other drugs.

    I've had it happen, but only when I'm in a goofy mood. A lot of people don't believe you can get that way without being on something.

    Nope.

    Lost, confused, sure. But not high.

    Irony is that they're usually the ones confused though.
