    When I think about time, it's definitely in terms of intervals, and occasionally music or images, but that's only if they were particularly striking.

    When I was about 8 years old I was suddenly struck with the realization of how short a 70 year life span really is. I've lived with a frightening sense of passing time ever since. Does any other NT relate to this?

    Yes and I try to ignore it every time I can.

    You can run but you can't hide.


    Seriously, that is why I've always hated New Year's!

    Time is an enemy that can be used or left. If left it will make sure you are a victim to failure.

    I'm not good at planning for the future so maybe I'm skeptical - but only of the long haul, I would say I was optimistic, even at times when my life ahs been seriously crap.

    As for the past, well I have an interest in history, as for my own past, well Its more matter of fact, largely related to that I see intervals in time... like when I was doing XYZ, or living in such ans such place, hence my past is pepered by intervals with preferences for the intervals I enjoyed

    Time as intervals I can associate with, I tend to be able to see the same time under different intervals though however. One isn't principal, and they are interchangeable. Such as a couple of years ago, I can see it in the sense as this is the time I started working hard at something, but also in another interval the time I started having [insert name here] as a girlfriend. And it's also when I got in an immense amount of trouble. But each of those intervals started and ended at distinctly different times, while the point seems to be lying within all of these intervals. Does anybody relate to that?

    I use time to drive me. If my time is finite, I better make the most of the time I have.

    Thats why I hate unscheduled time . . . it feels so wasted. Unless its been assigned the purpose of rest/recreation time.

    I think more periodically. As a completely goal oriented person my mindset is more of "These courses shall be this year and such, next would be job searching and then career success, ending with retirement"
