    Kra, so, then, is it that thinking of "nothing" thinking of something, either through deceit shrouded in a desire for self-preservation or in a philosophical dwelling on an ungraspable essence as the expounding of a number here seem to be implying?
    Do men, as a sex, spend considerable time actually philosophically contemplating "nothingness" or attempting to achieve some higher place through meditation? Or, is that simply the NT males?
    Would you say that NF, SJ, and SP males are more capable of having moments where their brains are blank echoing caverns of no-thought?

    The only time my thoughts will ever shut up is when I'm close to falling asleep.

    Personally i cant stop thinking. When i try not to think about enything i start thinking that now i need to stop thinking, since thats thinking too i fail at start. After some seconds of that my mind goes wandering to other thoughts. Few seconds of that i notice that now im thinking something else than not trying to think and this starts all over.

    Closest thing of not thinking is when im kind of listening music in my head. But even then my mind is really active since i can listen to vocals, guitar and drums at same time, sometimes allso can add bass to that, but usually if i hear bass it goes over some other instruments or vocals.

    Well, I do think S's, in general, are naturally more adept at reaching a higher focus ("not thinking" about unnecessary things) than we N's, at least on the physical world around us anyway. I don't think sex has much, if anything, to do with it.

    The following are my own ponderings on the matter, so take that to mean what you will.

    I think that when you attempt to think of "nothing" as an object, you have inadvertently created a construct, or something to think about. This may be a purely verbal inconsistency, but it seems to me that "nothing" does not exist. If "nothing" existed, it would cross the line from non-existential into existential, thus ceasing to be "nothing." Quite the perplexing paradox.

    It's also possible that I've purely missed your point...

    In that case, we're either;
    1.) Thinking about something stupid, and don't want you to know
    2.) Thinking about something objectionable, and don't want you to know.
    3.) Thinking about something that wouldn't easily translate into words
    4.) Thinking about something we don't want to think about, and therefore don't want to talk about.
    5.) Thinking about something that simply wouldn't be interesting to talk about, like some basic physical, visual, or auditory sensation.

    If I left anything out, feel free to add something guys.
    +1. I don't know why everyone is taking the question so literally.

    But to add to that list:

    6.) Mental defragmentation. We take up the most important sums of our lives, know those by heart and forget everything else. No, your mother's birthday is NOT important.

    I'm incapable of thinking of nothing. However, if I think strickly of a black screen, I get total black. But such a strict vision is strictly undone. So when I attempt to sleep, I picture a black void, with dark colored Z's, or myself sleeping.

    So, can you?
    Nope. I could be falling asleep and still manage to insult someone.
