I notice sounds, shadows, etc. 99% of the time I dont respond, its just more like taking in info and not doing anything with it.
    Yep, exactly. Those things stand out to me like an alarm. It's always strange to me when I scare someone by coming up right behind them because they didn't notice. I'm like, "I was sure they noticed but just didn't react..."

    wowwww.

    How does that even happen? I can't imagine ever being like that, in any world. My mind registers all movements if only in the background. Everything is recorded. I didn't realize there was any other way to live.

    I scare the hell out of mpeople all the time by accident, just by walking up behind them and saying "Hi!"

    Yeah, I do that all the time. I wouldn't say I'm very aware of things, just that no one else seems to pay attention.
    No offense.

    I'm not an SP nor did I read the thread before hand, but my ESTP brother freaks me out with how perceptive he is.
    He can sit in his room concentrated to a tv show and all of a sudden comment on a conversation I'm quietly having several metres away from him in the livingroom. The same thing happens if I'm trying to munch the last cookies without him noticing "Don't eat it.".

    Yeah, for sure. That's the way it seems to me, at least. I only noticed recently how imperceptive others are.

    For real? That's nothing, haha. Our minds tend to zone in on conversations. We can't seem to help it. As for the cookies, if I've been wanting to eat more of something I'll generally be on the lookout for anyone eating them, so even out of the corner of my eye I'd see it.

    Wow you SPs with your special ninja powers, this thread has been revelatory to me since I am so NOT like you! I will do something while being lost in thought and then try to remember if I actually did it ("Did I really put the dishes into the cupboard?" "Did I actually check the mailbox?"). I am also so not aware of my surroundings unless they are in some way unusual or interesting food for thought. For example in my last flat there was a "No Smoking" sign hanging directly above my letterbox and it took me six months to realise it's there!

    I have no idea if this is weird for an SP or not, but I'm only intensely aware of my environment when I sit still. When that happens, I notice EVERYTHING. If I'm walking down a street, or wherever, it's the complete opposite... I disappear into my own little world. People have claimed walking by me and waving and get frustrated that I don't notice them. My own personal theory (no idea if it's right or wrong :P) is that my environment is moving too fast that I'm just kinda taking it all in instead of paying attention to detail
    I have an inner monologue that sounds strikingly similar to something off Animal Planet.

    Actually, I have to admit I can associate with that a little bit, but for different reasons. Sometimes I zone out if I'm bored and just do things automatically. Every once in awhile I won't be sure that I did something though that's the oddity. But when I zone out like that I'm usually not thinking of anything in particular, my mind's just blank. I have a friend who I think is possibly SP who is the same way. He blanked out a whole day of work like that but it ended up being his best day of work ever, and everyone was amazed by the job he did. Sometimes I'm thinking of other things, but my thoughts of other situations and times and places are usually very weak.

    Also, I don't notice some things in my surroundings if they're not directly applicable to me, but I usually don't care, either. I don't think that sign could've possibly gone unnoticed by me, though. It's more or less things that are less obvious, and usually they're recorded in the background anyway. My mind automatically picks out the relevant things and alerts me of them. Everything else is recorded but kept more or less subconscious.

    Definitely makes sense. I think some ISTPs (don't know how widespread it is) can tend to seem autistic at times. I used to be like a little ISTP when I was a kid because I didn't have much interaction with others. But I think I was more aware then, too. Hm, I dunno. Maybe it's just a matter of being way more focused than other types.
