    Have you ever been so distant from the world around you that when you look at yourself you wonder if your body is a costume and that your just an imaginary observer in another world. Hella creepy right?

    Questions from one INTP to any other:

    Do you ever wonder if people notice little speaking errors?
    (Yup. And at this point i stop correcting them.

    What's the best reference book you can recommend to have?
    Descriptionary
    Amazon.com: Descriptionary (Facts on File Writer's Library) (9780816041060): Marc McCutcheon: Books

    AND

    Metamagical Themas
    Amazon.com: Metamagical Themas: Questing For The Essence Of Mind And Pattern (9780465045662): Douglas Hofstadter: Books

    Best way to escape boredom?
    (Sound effects, cartoons, weed, writing, cultivating awesome ideas)

    Speaking errors are only ever addressed when made in rapid succession, at which point I shake my head from side to side while making strange noises and then apologize for not being able to speak properly. I hope to one day mask any apparent stutter as a bold, poetic new method of expression, but in the mean time I'm content only because I notice more speech errors in others than I do in my own vocal assertions.

    I wouldn't recommend any reference book in particular

    For boredom? The holy trifecta of weed, exercise, and internets.

    I've had dreams like that but I haven't had that happen to me in real life.

    Yes. I don't think most people notice speaking errrors as easily as me.

    I mostly use the Internet rather than relying on reference books. I use Wikipedia alot. It's not totally accurate but its good as a starting point for research.

    Sleep (many of my dreams are more interesting than real life)
    Force myself to go out and socialize more (often reluctant to at first and later find myself having a good time)
    Visit Typology Central (I'm giving you some brownie points here)

    Haha...

    Social systems are insanely complex...

    Sounds like a worthy life-long challenge to tackle to me

    I kinda like the idea of ghosts and energy, but I'm still a skeptic, deep down.

    For those of you who read Death Note, how strongly do you identify with L?

    I identify, tough to say how strongly. L was the first person(real or fictional) that I could identify with. Since then there have been several others but not enough for me to be able to tell strengths really.
