    Talking helps develop my ideas. I need a person tho, doing it all by myself feels strange.

    @INTP the only thing is to try.


    Seriously when I dream strange scenarios in this fashion most of the times I start annoying my friends with them and possibly we end up writing the plot for a novel or something.

    Yes, this is the same sort of shit that goes through my head as well. I can definitely relate.

    it's all about the toaster...



    as for the main topic and most of the posts here, all i can really say is "yep, me too".

    i don't see a problem with it though. the only negative ramification is social and even then only with the interaction with strangers looking at you funny.

    otherwise, if someone asks you "what?" you can always use it to strike a conversation, and with the people who know you there's more then a nice advantage in filling up their idea of the bunny eared lawyer.

    On the possibility of it being a Ne/Si thing, I don't know. I really don't think aloud much, not in terms of real processing. When I need to sort something out, I write and rewrite and rewrite. I don't usually like others to hear my nascent thoughts regarding my serious opinions. It's uncomfortable and I often can't explain adequately.

    Maybe it's different for Ne-Ti, though, or maybe I'm an oddball out.

    I do it sometimes when I think nobody can hear me. When someone suddenly comes from behind a corner then I'm like "Oh crap!" - I instantly shut up and pretend that it wasn't me talking. It's so embarrassing Then I'm silent for some few minutes, and then start talking again, for the whole story to repeat itself.

    I do it too. Actually sometimes I try to explain things to myself to get clearer picture, but when I find it too bothersome, I say in my thoughts "Screw this, you already know what I mean" and then, the other part of me replies "No shit, Sherlock!". But I think that it's useful to explain to yourself things that you think you understand - only then you can see how well you really understand them.

    It helps me make sense of what's in my head- organize my thoughts- all that.

    I can have the problem clearly figured out in my mind, and a solution as well, but all of the parts in between are usually murky until I either talk or write it out.
    This. By the way, I've read about some experiments that compared performance of people that were either encouraged to think out loud, or prohibited from it. It was shown that in general, when people think out loud, they're better at solving problems.

    what i've noticed about talking aloud (more broadly than just with ntps) is that it seems like it follows some basic criteria. extroversion, impulsiveness, excitement, and Fe. the act of sharing meanings is grounding because you get to emerge a values context that helps provide the social reality part of what you are trying to explore. the excitement part is just spewing out networks of hunches (collusions) that you're afraid to lose and want to capture by a kind of blurting, racing description. i include extroversion because i just mean a state of active, unreflective creativity. it uses the talk system to work through the problem, which channels your creative energies through different resources, helping you mediate your resources in a different way (that is probably necessary for Fe users at times and a big aspect of how we predict something, make hypotheses, run simulations).

    it's more about context, i think, more for organizing the conditions than it is for solving the puzzle. so it's good when the puzzle has become figuring out what the puzzle is rather than simply acting or moving forward most directly within the more narrow confines that have emerged in your own thinking.

    this process is also much of why i enjoy spending time with ntps. i have the easiest time engaging in simulation games. still learning, i think on all sides, how to turn that into tangible production processes for all parties. but it helps keep the story going, refining it, reshaping it, and remembering the distributed motives that i cannot sufficiently hold within myself.

    Same here. I don't care if anyone thinks I'm crazy, it's productive and entertaining.
    A search for truth is a search for a greedy perspective.

    Nah, that's not truth. That's just your bullshit ideas of truth. Truth is always inclusive. If it's not inclusive, then toughen it up and try harder.

    @Rad3k

    Yeah, I do it to. I wish I could find a way to stop it so that people don't think that I'm a complete nutbag.
