    I do this all the time. Some times I will only have the conversion in my head and never bother to have it with the person in question because I feel that I have already covered the ground and I know how they will respond.

    I would really like to see some examples of your in-your-head conversations. Anyone willing to share?

    All the time. I also end up pacing around the room at the same time, which is apparently amusing for anyone who walks in on me. If I'm doing it with someone I know well and I'm comfortable with whatever topic it happens to be, I'll occasionally bring it up to see if I guessed their end correctly, though I mostly don't mention it.

    I can't say that I have full conversations, but I do try to predict peoples reactions to things that I could say to them. It's kind of like one of those logic puzzles that involve a lying doorman and a truth telling doorman, and you have to ask them questions for whatever reason.

    "If I say A to person B they will respond by saying C.." and so on.

    I DO THIS ALL THE TIME. Especially if I have to reply to emails or stuff, I compose a really long email in my head, and when I actually sit down to write it, it feels like I've already said everything I wanted to say, but I haven't said a word, so it feels repetitive, and then I go procrastinate and do something else... and... um, I believe I've answered the question.

    1. I get an asshole image so everybody are avoiding me. What is much better then option that I have to avoid everybody else.

    2. If you do it carefully you can spread your ideas this way.


    But I am aware of the fact that I am too aloof and intimidating.

AND THEN NEVER ASK THEM THE QUESTION! I would move forward as if we had the conversation

    Crazy-Delusional, or INTJ-ish?
    I have done that and I'm totally NF...and E. Perhaps the difference is eventually I will have the conversation I need to have because it's not fair to the other person..even if I'm almost competely sure the convo will turn out as I thought. I have to take a step away and watch myself during the actual convo because I don't want to manipulate it to go the way I imagined...
    for my life is slowed up by thought and the need to understand what I am living.

    Some people are like that...like me, except I wouldn't pretend the conversation existed...the parts where I would get worked up was if I thought there could be a serious problem.
