    ALL. THE. *$&%^$. TIME.

    At least I'm more conscious of the fact that I over-analyze than I used to be. But most of the time that doesn't stop me, hell no.

    The last time I felt like I was overcome with pure sensation was a gig I went to a while ago. (they were such a cool young band who I'd already seen a few times...and a short time later they decided to break up. ) I had a couple of drinks on a largely empty stomach, which made me a little giddy. There were a lot of cute guys there, which also made me a little giddy And finally, the music...I felt so high and thoughtless in the best possible way...it was beautiful. I crave more of those moments.

    Not that I don't want to be deep, serious and emotional. I am INFJ, after all. but sometimes I wish I could switch off both "think" AND "feel" at will for as long as I need to to recover.

    I'm getting the impression, from the N and S responses on this thread, that the SPs have a somewhat easier time switching off "think", but wonder if it's an appropriate thing to do, or what leads up to them feeling that way, etc.

    The NFs are more like "YESSSSSSSSSSS...I want to switch off 'think'...but I CAN'T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    Oh yeah. It would be such bliss at times to be able to turn off my brain with a switch instead of going over what I still need to do, who said what to who and to resolve the mess it caused, why someone is likely to respond to me the way they did, or worse: what's the meaning of life, where do we come from, am I doing the right thing atm, should I be following a different journey, which decision is the best :banned:

    Seriously, someone shoot me *has a migraine*

    Of course.

    But that IS how I ended up a single dad at age 22.

    Under stress I LOVE to think, that's when my problem solving comes out. But it's probably not thinking in the MBTI sense, more like just turning things over in my head untill a solution jumps out.

The sad thing is, that I LIKE THE WAY MY BRAIN WORKS, but my body is a wreck if I allow it to run on its normal schedule, and do not force it to reconcile with my physical body, which also has very many demands of it each day. It is a very tricky balance for me to maintain, and for my STP kin as well, but I know of few that would change our wiring even if we did have the chance.
    Thank you for this testimony Halla. Because I relate on this and I was wondering if I was not INFJ. The over-thinking side is even more marked when I'am enforced to care about problems in the future or peoples, value judgmement. That enforce me to care about things I'm not naturally comfortable with (especially the "future'" part actually") and that make me mad because I just want to profit of thepresent moment and deal with what matters to me in the present moment (including relationships). I hate when I'am enforced to be project oriented. I'am really comfortable with short-term issues, but future planning make me mad. It's relyed with my enneatype, the 6. I'm constantly involved in self-doubt and compulsive "yes but", "what if" thinking. This is when I must deal with the future, but when I can be just focused on the present moment, it's liberating.

    I just stop thinking,
    and act
    and
    feel

    I try not to think when I play music. Thinking makes my reactions slower, and just gets in the way most times. but I'm still thinking when I don't think...it's just a more instinctual form.
