    I mean, if you're on a train or somewhere else sedentary, I can't just relax and daydream/listen to music. I've ALWAYS got to do something stimulating, like play chess or other games on my phone. Or read (and never junk like magazines/fiction...stuff like science or philosophy), write, etc.

    Every time I try to relax, I end up doing math calculations in my head, or thinking up mechanical inventions, rotating/inverting 3D objects in my mind, etc. Kind of defeats the purpose!

    If I don't, I feel like my mind is dying. But yet I suppose it's relaxing.

    Do you SPs ever get that too? Or do you have the ability to just LET yourselves relax mentally?
    Yeah I find that applies to be me as well. My mind needs constant stimulation although not quite as inventive as yours.

    If you really want to mellow out the brain, alcohol helps.

    Edward: Bebop here here! Alright woo hoo!
    Weathergirl: Chance of rock showers today upgraded to 90 percent.
    Edward: Really.

    Definitely do. It's my natural state. At least, for the most part. There's always a part of my mind ticking things off, but it's more like instinct. When I have urgent things to do and little time to do them in, my mind's on hyperactive mode and I'm switching transistors off and on in my mind at sonic speed, thinking through different options I could take.

    So it really depends. I love the relaxation mode, though. But I also love the other mode, as long as I'm not feeling too crappy. Which I am sometimes because evidently I have some medical issues or my eating just isn't balanced enough.

    Also, my answer will vary according to what mode I'm in, because if I've been in a certain mode for a few days (or even sometimes a few intense hours or minutes) I'll tell you that's what I'm like because it feels constant because I pretty much only evaluate what I'm feeling at the time. The rest of the time is irrelevant.

    I have to have something in front of me when I play with it. I cant ever remember enough about things to play with it in my head. I am an extremely external visual thinker.

    Hopefully I have some problem to run through my head or else boredom sets in and then I find something to do thats better then being bored. Currently my options are exercise, go for a drive, guitar hero, facebook games, etc.

    edit: its not just entirely visually, but sensory. Others talking can kill boredom...it doesnt have to be the most interesting and I dont even have to connect, but it keeps me from getting bored. I am not good at small talk so you can see how this presents problems.

    If there's nothing exciting on the sensory level, then I get bored, and then I might start thinking about things. But I typically can't go too far with it, even with alot of effort. Sensory stimulation or no, it doesn't change my whole perception paradigm. I can miss specifics, though, when I'm doing this type of thinking. But the general range of sensory perception is never diminished. That would just be freaky. There's at least a very strong layer of background input. For instance, I'd still be able to tell if you were sneaking up behind me, unless you were really good at it.

    Its fun when people try this because it makes it so easy to turn this around. You know how bad you can scare the crap outta someone who is trying their hardest to focus on not being noticed by you :yim_rolling_on_the_

    :steam: A friend just did that last week. I was walking to work listening to my iPod and she leapt on me and hugged me from behind. Bitch almost got her head torn off her neck.
