    I am saying I think INFP daydream about daydreamy/interpersonal things and INTP spend their time thinking their thoughts about more logic based ideas. I am not saying I have the definaitve answer, I was just expressing an opinion. Take with a grain of salt.

    If you don't, I HIGHLY question how much of an INTP you are.

    Wait a second, back up the trolley. I'm not much of a daydreamer either.

    There's no need to expound greatly on the connection b/w Ne and daydreaming but a brief explanation would be appreciated.

    Okay... I had to look it up:

    Daydream: The condition of being so lost in solitary thought as to be unaware of one's surroundings: absent-mindedness, abstraction, bemusement, brown study, muse, reverie, study, trance.

    Do it all the time and I call it thinking.

    Exactly. These are typical characteristics of any type with Ni or Ne (especially INxx, though).
    If one claims to be any INxx type yet does not have the characteristics listed under the definition of daydreaming, especially those which are bold-faced, then I would greatly question their claims.

    Okay fair enough, but I think the topics of daydreams for INTP and INFP would be different.

    So much for my Ne. I'm sharp as a tack and never miss a thing.

    Dana, you have my condolences.
