    It is not mystical. It's just the recognition that you must be mentally receptive to a particular concept. It's similar to how when you learn a new word you see it everywhere. We are ready for ideas and then we notice them. Truth is, they were always there. Though, I agree with your general point.

    Analysis is a way of keeping something at arm's length. And like you said, you never slow down. I do the same thing. Slowing down means that unbidden thoughts creep in. These are typically negative feelings as this is part of our inferior function (Fi), if I am not mistaken. Inferior functions tend to be more negative as they are less under our conscious control. But, this never slowing down is a flight from the voice inside. As soon as I saw that, I started listening better. And the more I listened, the more I became friends with it. Even if it seemed big and dark and scary at first.
    I can't help it. I was sitting in bed last night trying to stop thinking, to stop analyzing everything that comes into view. I realized that everything I experience or see I must break it down. As soon as I slowed my mind, I realized how fast paced my mind had been moving. I slept better last night than I have in months.

    I dislike the negative. I am a very happy, outgoing, and optimistic person, as the OP stated we tend to be. I dislike it very much when the negative comes. It seems to be magnified.

    I will probably start routinely slowing my mind down at night, that way I can give my mind a break and be able to handle what comes at me they way it should be handled.

    I might start posting less on here

    Well, no one LIKES the negative. But, it is part of things. It's like eating your veggies before ice cream. I've always been of the "ice cream first then whine until they don't make me eat the veggies" school.

    I know no one likes the negative, except for the masochistic ones, but it just seems to be something I try to keep more at bay than most people.

    And I love veggies!

    We need to get some disagreement over here. I am starting to feel sick.

    I've mostly quit drinking. I used to drink and smoke when I went out on the weekends. It made me feel like shit later no matter how much I loved it. I've cut down on the caffeine (switched to decaf and decaf tea) and it's helped a lot, too. I didn't realize how much I was taking in until I stopped and thought about it.

    2 cups in the morning, a couple cokes during lunch, a cup of coffee in the afternoon, and maybe a cup of tea or a couple of glasses of tea after work.

    Okay, ENTP's. Back to work. Why do we hate agreement?
