    I think a lot about what I want to do in the future: going on trips, paying off debts, wedding, etc.

    I need to learn more about how to live in the moment.

    I suffer from this problem pretty severely as well.

    Two ISTJ's posted that they need to learn to live in the moment -- I thought that was something ISTJ's were good at?

    Ahh close. You're thinking of SP's. It's Se that makes people "live in the moment." SJ's have Si, which is more about the past.

    I have a hard time with that too. My thoughts usually either involve the past(recalling something I did before) or the future(planning).

    Yes, SPs do that. I can´t.

    Despite having Si, I think more about the future.

    I only reacall the past in order to avoid repeating mistakes.

    Recently, when I've been lost in thought, I've been thinking about what colors to paint the kitchen and living room of the house we're buying... Or dreaming about the wedding and honeymoon. Okay, okay.... So rather than dreaming about them I've been planning out details in my head. I'm so obsessed with planning.

    Depends on the mood i suppose. I've come to realise i'm in my own little world far too often (that explains the bruises, lol)

    I can get that gaze in my eyes and not be thinking of anything.
    I can look over my past and see perfect timings and connections.
    I try to see beyond the obvious in front of me, i try to use more than my 5 senses and think what it would be/feel like.
    I try and become a receptor (not sure if thats the right word) so information can come to me.
    I talk to myself often so the walls know my secrets

    I tend to do a little bit of what everyone is saying. When I'm alone with my thoughts I tend to think very creatively, I suppose "daydreaming" is the appropriate word, where I come up with intricate stories or places and play them out in my mind.

    I also think about tasks that I have to accomplish in the context of time. I reflect a lot on myself or others in my life, either trying to figure out certain problems or analyzing scenarios.

    It is really interesting to see what people prioritize while they're thinking, though! Good topic.
