    Did it all the time. Still sometimes do it, although developing a social side really helped me.

    And... uh, Jeffster, I do the second part too a lot.

    Ok, here goes. This was the kind of thing I used to do to my ex:

    Conversation 1:

    Me: Sweetie, I really feel lonely and neglected when you sit in front of the computer all night long playing WoW...

    Him: ... What? <click, click, click>

    Me: I said that I wish you would log off the computer for a bit and spend some time with me...

    Him: Ok, I will. We're in the middle of a raid right now though so gimme like ... an hour or two... <click, click, click>

    Me: Nevermind. I'll go take a bath

    [This conversation did not have the desired results, and is the most probably way it will go in my initial thinking... so since it didn't get me what I want, I need to see if I can word things differently or take a different approach]

    Conversation 2

    Me: Sweetie... your favorite show is going to be coming on TV pretty soon, do you want to come watch it with me?

    Him: <click, click, click> What show is it?

    Me: Uh, your favorite one of course (thinks frantically) ... CSI (pats self on back for remembering under the gun) [I literally can stump myself with these in the head conversations]

    Him: Oh, they're running a re-run this week, I saw the preview earlier. <click, click, click>

    [From here though, I may extrapolate different answers and consider them...]

    Him: I can't leave my group right now, can you record it on the DVR so we can watch it later?

    Him: Can you just turn the TV this way and turn it up a bit? You can sit over here by me of you want...

    etc etc etc

    After each one of these responses, I'll go through my answers to them, probably getting more and more ticked off as I go.


    Conversation # 3

    Me: [Getting more desperate in my attempts now and willing to consider just about anything] Oh Darling... I bought something at Victorias Secrets today... you wanna see it? (wink)

    Him: (perk) I'm logging out, hold on ...

    [Crap, if I do this I actually have to put out... then he'll go back to playing WoW... plus I haven't been to VS... *sigh*]

    By this time I'll probably be distracted by something else that comes up so when he gets home that night and logs into WoW I'll walk through the door, see him sitting there and get instantly pissed off because he's still playing on the computer. I don't say anything, but I silently march off to the bedroom alone to go to sleep... angry.

    Oh, I do that all the time. Real people - fictional scenarios, real people - real scenarios, fictional people... sometimes I'm myself, sometimes I'm another character I made up and then I interact with some more made up or fictional characters.

    I sometimes feel like I'm so caught up in my fantasies that I'm confused about what I really did and didn't do. I live in several different worlds at the same time, and oscillate between them as my moods take me. It's hard to keep track of them at times. I can't remember a time when I didn't do this.

    i also do this a lot, particularly when i'm trying to go to sleep at night. It often keeps me awake for hours. Mine usually involve me interacting with someone i've never met before or someone that i don't know well.

    I do, that, too, and it feels like a drain of energy to repeat myself when I've already hashed it out in my head. I really have to watch indulging my head conversations too much.

    I also have to remember to let the other person surprise me--they might not react the way I think they will.

    That's how mine works, only I can usually control which "world" I'm in.
    What a waste of life..

    I think I have more fictional conversations than real ones. Sometimes I have a fake one to test the waters for a real one I want to initiate. Sometimes I just feel like thinking about someone and it needs a context, hence the imaginary conversation. Often it involves me saying things that are much bolder than I would venture in reality (declarations of love etc.) Sometimes I can control them better than other times.

    The biggest problem I seem to have as a result of them is that all of these conversations seem to me to draw me closer to the people I'm "talking" with and when I actually interact with them I feel closer to them than they do to me. Well, that and that I can completely delude myself...

    Also the effects are more extreme if I don't have actual interactions to temper the imaginary ones for an extended period of time (and that amount of time varies based on the person.)

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

    Crazy-Delusional, or INTJ-ish?
    Can't it be both? I do the same thing sometimes, and get confused when they have no idea what I'm talking about.

    I also sometimes think about scenarios to the point where it seems like they've already happened when they haven't. One time I had a dream during the night in which I used the bathroom, and I woke up terribly confused that I still had to go pee...
