    I don't think it is type related in itself, i have noticed plenty NT's zone out ...just in different ways and for different reasons.
    For myself if i zone out during a conversation it can be due to many things... most likely i have heard the info befor and am stepping ahead to guess what comes next or how to change the direction. Also i may just have a lot on my mind and be focussing on more than one thing and it so happens i lost the trail of the conversation whilst investigating something else mentally. Also possible is that i'm just not that interested in the subject matter, though that is rare as most things do interest me. Sometimes though if a topic becomes too technical and specific in an area that i am unfamiliar with i may wonder off into dreamland unintentionally. Oh and another thing is when people just waffle on and on and go round in circles without progressing... and have a monotonus tone... gah zzzzzzz

It's only when Im talking to someone one on one that I get sorta sucked into the energy of the conversation in quite that way. If I were simply observing someone else interact it's not as intense. I dont know if any of this makes sense, but my point is that with Se conversations are not just intellectual, there's a sensual component as well. To a more sensitive person, all that input can become overwhelming and they might just check out.

    I find that multitasking can short circuit this. I usually pace or stretch when Im on a long phone call. Feeding that sensory input with something (Anything, really.) can be enough to free my mind up to actually give a conversation my full attention.

    I swear I wasn't monolouging, I don't really do that most of the time. But Wind-Up Rex I think this sounds like a possiblity. We'd just finished a really exhausting athletic event so I was probably being less animated than usually.

    I'll be the first to admit that I do have a hard time communicating with some NTs because it seems like they do take a lot longer to respond sometimes and I have a hard time patiently waiting.

    This is true. I'm thinking about my ESFP boy- he does it all the time.

    To be fair, ESFPs don't have much to say anyways. I mean, they say a lot, but a lot just makes me scratch my head.

    "Sharon Stone in Casino is.. like.. my role model."

    "What? You want to be a mafia cokehead whore?"

    I can never figure out if any are bisexual either. The romances they rant about seem to change genders a lot. I don't think they know either... unless you point it out.

    If they are in some extreme Se state, I can't get a sentence in without them drifting off into the rest of the world. I absolutely hate it when it's sports games... That drives me nuts, I always feel that I'm saying something much more interesting even if it's not THAT interesting. Geez. Gotta sneak in your words on the commercials. Though, I used to have an ESFP friend who was obsessed with basketball. Rondo or whatever his name was. And the whole Celtics team basically. And I would be talking and she'd manage to keep one ear on me and one ear on the game, but when it got really climactic in the game, I'd be talking or something and she would punch me in the leg, like a frustration thing. Not with me, but with the game. I had so many bruises and we both thought that was actually really funny. Her abusive knee jerk reaction. I have to be in the mood for the choppy conversation if they are being like that.

    Oh, guessing you are one to really think before you speak, too!

    They're in their own head.

    I find the opposite can be true too, that someone can be completely oblivious to the fact that they aren't talking enough.

    Ha! In addition to his monologues... my husbadn's guilty of this, too. I've just come to accept that my husband is socially awkward when he's out of his element. If it isn't military related or economy related my husband is a complete goober.

    Ha, i'd imagine that would be fi loaded identity rather than drug addict envy. Though i have to say what an awful image you are painting.
