I am not promoting any drugs or particularly marijuana in this post. But I am just curious to find out how people with knowledge of Personality types (better knowledge about themselves) see things with drugs.
I smoked a drag of marijuana yesterday on my birthday party. I only had smoked it twice in my life and about three years ago. So, one drag was enough for me to feel a little high. I looked normal to other people, but I could feel the difference in the way my mind works.
Does marijuana makes the brain works faster? I don't know but that's how I felt. I felt like my brain quickly co-ordinate perceptions (of reality) with intuitions (of mind), quickly to understand the perceptual events better and more intuitively than ever. I felt that I had similar experience most of my childhood.
I felt like I have high awareness of my Extraverted Intuition, my primary function. I saw everything so clearly and was surprised to feel that I missed this kind of high awareness most of my life. Everything that seemed puzzled was suddenly seemed clear. For this reason, I thought that in normal life I am slow and my thinking and interpretations are slow now, than in my childhood. I have said to have depression so I believe that start of my depression is what made me slow and think slowly (Schizotypy).
For example, have you ever had a friend that uses you financially, but you feel like you couldn't resist him or her because to you his/her proposals for money seem logical. I had friends like that. Sometimes, I wonder why I do such submissive things even if they don't benefit me in anyways. I feel like I could not understand them. And when they suddenly do something that is very disturbing to me, I break up their friendships and wonder why they did it even when I was nice to them.
So when I think that I am slow and my brain works slow in real life, one drag of marijuana felt like a plot twist at the end of the movies like "Six sense and illusionist".
It makes me feel like I should develop the ability to observe people and events and use Intuitive Thinking faster following every quick change than I am now in order to better understand the social life. Instead of burying myself with Introverted Thinking.
I could see why people using "Sensation" are little better than me, because of my preference to intuitively analyze things than simply observe and give response. With slow thinking, intuitive analyzes takes longer times and I will miss the right time to respond.
So faster brain functioning is what I need, but definitely not marijuana addiction. I should learn to speed things up in my mind that’s all.
