    Sensotard moments...hmm

    Well, generally speaking I have sensory over-excitability when I walk into new environments - especially if people are staring at me from multiple angles. I've gotten slightly better though. In high school, it was horrible when I was late for class and I'd get a vicious stare from my teacher combined with the class' silence as I made my way from doorway to seat. As a result, I used to bang into a lot of things along the way. But once I'm comfortable and my external sense-stimuli has calmed down, I can just sit there in tune with my intellect and own any shallow sensor in a debate. But until then the sensors have the upper hand.

    I'd like to return to this idea of over-excitability for the first few minutes in a new environment because I want viewers on here to understand how bad it is some times. Imagine all your pet peaves combined are occuring in front of you while you also are compelled to be on your best behavior. This contradiction and tension is the best I can explain what the first few minutes are like as I'm adapting to a new environment.

    When I was younger, ESFP BFF and I were the two best on our softball team; we were playing an easy team because we were both on the bench. Playfully spitting sunflower seeds at each other, she spat them at me and I bolted out of the dugout to avoid it and ran directly into the giant metal pole, which happened to have a bolt sticking out directly in the way of my forehead. I got a pretty cool gash out of it and then just pulled my cap down so my coaches wouldn't notice (they wouldn't have let me play the 2nd half of the game that way). Somehow there is no scar despite the fact that it was not properly cleaned and cared for.

    I bought myself a new leather western hat and boots for a Christmas present to myself. Went shopping in the mall. Received several amused looks and even a few chuckles. Irritated me. "Haven't they ever seen a woman in a western hat before?" I thought indignantly!

    Came home and left it on for a while, avoiding having to deal with hat-hair.

    Spouse walks into room, starts to laugh. Dang!

    "What? What?"

    "Next time you wear your hat, why don't you take the tag off of it?"

    Sits in car while husband runs into store. It is a 90 degree day. The windows are up. The sweat starts pouring down my face. Husband comes out. "Why didn't you roll the windows down? You're soaking wet."

    "Never thought of it."

    Son takes me to his favorite bar for a burger and to play some pool with his friends. This is a very high honor. Anja goes to the bathroom and emerges with four feet of toilet paper hanging from the back of her jeans. Oopsie. . .

    This thread makes me wonder what disasters would happen if you put a bunch of INFJs in the same room.

    ~Sensotard Alert~

    I just had a moment.

    *Places eggs in boiling water*

    Thinks:

    "Take them out in 4 minutes. Might as well read a bit more of Either/Or while I'm waiting"

    15 Minutes later

    "THE EGGS"

    Now I have to start all over again.
    It's just a ride

    Tsunamis, torandoes, earthquakes, meteors raining down from the sky, and odd munchkins running around kicking people in the shins. Or maybe there'd just be a bunch of space cadets blindly running into doors, each other, and table corners. If they're really tired, then you hope to [insert diety here] they do not try to cook anything then go sit and read or watch TV (especially noodles...on high heat...that don't make any loudish sounds when the foamy starch starts to bubble over the edge of the pot).

    Hm, happened a hours ago...
    I was talking with my ISTP friend, when the conversation went like this:
    Me: This Thursday is deppressing.
    She: Why you say that?
    Me: The sky is grayish, and I can't find anything to do...
    She: Well... For starters, today is Wednesday.
    Me: Oh... well, this Wednesday is deppressing.
    She: ... Sometimes I think I hate you.

    Just the other day:

    Walked into gas station. Paid for gas. Walked out, got in my car and left without ever pumping the gas.

    Frantically looking all over for my cell phone while explaining to someone i was going to be late because I couldn't find it. I was explaining this over the phone(my cell).

    Dudeeeeeee, I had a total sensotard moment today, and it was rather embarrassing. I'm sure the new person probably thought I was trying to piss her off or something.

    Okay, go I go in the kitchen to get a coffee for my student, and I look everywhere for the milk. In the fridge (of course), in the cupboard (we have long-lasting milk here in Germany), everywhere. Then I went to her and asked for more milk. She brought two containers in, and then looked rather pissed off. Then, I thought, Jeez what did I do?

    Out of a clear blue sky, I look to my right, and it hit me - the milk was right next to the coffee machine. DOH!!!!!!
