    Yes! Glad to see I'm not the only one victimized by Ni. *sheepish* I have to make long lists for myself but try to remember I even HAVE a list.

    My ESFP bff can be VERY orderly when she's on a mission, but me and ISTP bff used to be a total mess trying to remember what the heck we were supposed to be doing.

    I try soo very hard.

    My ISFJ mother thinks I just don't care. I do care! I just can't convert my entire being every hour of every day.

    In dialectical behavior therapy, its called "mindfullness". Has a lot of relation to Buddhist meditation practices.

    some strange stuff.

    I naturally live in my head more than anywhere else, and have to shock meself into living in the moment, if I wish to do it on purpose. That's why I do activities that seem to frighten others (anything to do with heights, speed, etc.), because what makes others afraid physically just seems to exhilarate me.

    The one time I do have no problem living in the moment at, though, is when I am exposed to completely new surroundings or tactile sensations. I drink those in like a fine wine.

    Maybe that's what drew me to cars. It's like a horse that you can modify. I don't know that I ever want to go 120+mph again, but those drag races changed my life. You learn something about judgment, reaction and trust in your machine.

    You learn about the flexibility of reality from bungee jumping.

    Honestly, Ni can be a very powerful tool in life, but I've benefitted quite abit by developing Se.

    But, if you get creative, you can use Ni to create opportunities to experience the present at greater levels. For example, Ni is what I mostly use for songwriting and arrangement, but Se is what I use to perform it. And as we know, the better the song is, the greater the show can be!

    I suppose the method is different for everyone, but performing music is what does it for me. I don't think I've ever felt as alive as when I did on stage. Playing a poignant guitar solo at the height of a song you've invested yourself in is such a visceral experience.

    This happens when i'm really stressed out..
    I would hate to feel that way all the time.
    Just want to tell my brain to shut the hell up!!!

    Most of the time this isn't an issue..
