    The Music In Your Mind

    1. Do you usually have music playing on one of your Ne tracks or open tabs?

    2. Do you have 2 songs or 3 songs playing sometimes? Do you play around with that? Are there mash-ups?

    3. Do you compose in your sleep (dreaming) or while awake?

    4. Can you play around with these songs and melodies or sometimes it just downloads?


    The best for me is if it just downloads... then that is what Heaven would be like all of the time.

    I kind of think music is the best thing we humans do.

    It sometimes looks like medleys, jumping from one song to another. Sometimes, it can be one song in replay, in the background, sometimes it's not clear music, probably multiple songs colliding and splashing around. Yeah, there is these sort of sound effects sometimes.
    What is strange is that sometimes a song start as if preceding a new thought, I guess my mind is messy regarding sounds and use it as a relief stress of some sort. What enjoy the most is a music played from start to finish, but not when it plays in loop
    If you are curious I switched between 6 identified songs (Still alive, how to save a life, We know the way, Eine kleine Nachtmusik, tetris korobuska, never gonna gives you up) and 3 unidentified ones, i think.

    What do you means by download ?

    Yep, music lift the soul, and carry it into strange travels of wonders.

    1. Do you usually have music playing on one of your Ne tracks or open tabs?


    Always, in fact, silence unnerves me. There's a great scene in Eat, Pray, Love that reminds me of how I handle silence and meditation. I was born deaf. They eventually got my hearing back but I think I would go insane if I stopped being able to hear. It's one of my largest fears. The silence might drown me. I have panic attacks about it.



    2. Do you have 2 songs or 3 songs playing sometimes? Do you play around with that? Are there mash-ups?

    No. It might be my OCD or my bad hearing but I can't stand it if multiple radios are going, I love any type of music but I normally have to be listening to one song while working on a project. When I sleep I need a fan that has no rhythm to it, I constant hum to fall asleep to. Again silence unnerves me. I don't mind coming up with a mesh or listening to a remix of two songs played together as long as they seem harmonized, something that is chaotic and in an anarchic form would make my skin crawl. This type of sound has a way of disrupting my thoughts even more than silence does.

    3. Do you compose in your sleep (dreaming) or while awake?

    I do this when I'm asleep or awake. I love to compose. Normally I see my book in my thoughts like a movie playing out and I can even start finding songs to go with opening sequences or scenes in those visions. On long car rides, I can be caught starring out of a window for an hour listening to a music soundtrack I put together for the current novel I'm writing. It's like I'm watching my own private movie. They can be just as stimulating to me as if I were in a theater. I have a whole playlist on google for my Novel Alice. If I ever start it back up again. Believe me, the publisher is breathing down my throat if I've done anything new.

    This song below could be the opening if let's say HBO picked it up. I've already thought of a marinate doll looking like the main actress being taken around a dollhouse in a fake town, her strings being pulled by some dark figure blurred above. One scene could be Jedediah riding on a horse sprinting away from something dangerous, firing off a pistol form his saddle, of course, he would also be a puppet too, being controlled by the same dark figure. I can see every storyboard frame flipping like a stop motion picture. I would probably want the opening to be stop motion as well but not as seamless as a video there would be some jerkiness to it along with simulating 8mm old film like what they did in the opening of the Coven in American Horror Story.



    I'm currently writing the new edits in a new document on google. My friend suggested it so I don't damage the original by making the novel more for "everyone" with what the publisher wants. So that I could have both copies. The song below is what I play when I'm writing in the new first chapter. It's going to be destruction, having the aliens killing every last one of them as they rush Alice to the machine before her brain makes the Jump. Then the ending sequence to have Eliza ported into Alice's shell of a body to be left with a curdled scream as she's killed by the Aliens, showing all of humanity dies in the first chapter. I wanted music that sounded like a sonar going off and somehow organic but yet synthesized to represent the Jabberwocky and Mesmerizers.



    Anyways, yes, I do play my make believed movies and creations in my head and they have whole soundtracks to them. I'm not sure how far you read into the novel. I saw you make suggestions so I was hoping you might know what I'm talking about. lol. I have to be so vague about it lols.

    I also have composed my own melodies in my head but it's nothing that has caught my Ne. I think I sing very well, at least above the average bell curve.

    4. Can you play around with these songs and melodies or sometimes it just downloads? I'm not sure I understand this question?

    @Voi ceofspring you changed your name. I’m so glad you knew exactly what I was talking about. It made me feel good to know Someone else experiences what I do! I know you are musically trained and so I’m not sure if other ENFPs have this going on or not, really. And I know you used the analogy of the open tabs before so you knew exactly what I was talking about even though I didn’t describe it well. Except that I didn’t describe “downloads”.

    Okay. Sometimes original music is consciously being changed or created by me and sometimes with music my sub-conscious takes over— or something takes over and I hear original music pouring into my head. The music is either full symphony, full choir, already has lyrics that I try to catch to write down later. Usually it all is just like an experience at a symphony. It especially happens if I feel profoundly sad, but a few months ago I was in the supermarket when a full and very fast-paced Madrigal-type SATB song came rushing through my head. I cannot really catch the lyrics in a situation like that. If I try to slow down or change the music then sometimes it stops altogether, but sometimes I can make minor changes. I can switch out the tenor for a soprano voice. I have fantastic soloists that pop into my mind. The very best stuff hasn’t even been in English... but what the hell language is it? do I know? No. Until just a few years ago when I realized that I created this and I wasn’t just having a religious experience then I didn’t know I could change any of it. I thought I was just “listening in”. I wish I could write it down. I’m going to have to start in such a backward place writing down melodies and making them up consciously. I am so so so many steps away from being able to write what I hear and the stuff my conscious brain comes up with is drivel compared to what my subconscious can do. Yes... it’s weird, it’s not able to help anyone, and I kept my music “revelations” mostly completely secret until recently when I realized it was my brain and am asking for help to learn to write music. I think I will be lucky in my lifetime just to write down a basic ballad/rock song.

    Anyway... my post was a bit confusing and I have a hunch that music is so very important to most ENFPs. @NIHM I bet you are choosing the perfect mood songs! Do you guys think Baz Lehrman might be an ENFP? I think he might! He is SO good at figuring out music in his films... it’s all kind of symbolic too, the songs he picks.

    Love you guys!

    Yep, I changed it to one of my favourite music, Strauss II' s waltz name in english, like it, sounds positive, got it ! :D Fitting with your topic theme right ? XD

    That's something I was asking myself, why music seems so important in our minds, is it ENFP related ? NF related ? (I read somewhere a data of music listened by types groups, with NFs being the most likely to listen to music longer). The open tabs, yes, I was surprised to read that I wasn't the only one with a chaotic thought tracks, nice you used the analogy here !

    I see, at least I think, that's probably what I described with the "sometimes it's not clear music, probably multiple songs colliding and splashing around. Yeah, there is these sort of sound effects sometimes. " and the "3 unidentified ones, i think." There is time when unknow music play, and I always thought it was just me unable to recognise it, but maybe it's what you described ? Or it could be anything else. But yeah, especially younger, it happened a lot more than now thought. I even joked that if I could directly plug in people to my mind, they could listen to it, would be easiest than trying to learn to decipher and write down what is going on. Especially since like you mentionned, sometimes too much focus, and pouf, it stops. Like frightening the whole musical ensemble which run away !

    I noticed that I also have that with words, I end up "composing" randomly in my head, and sometimes out of nowhere there is a story starting, but to stop down, take a pen and paper, and write it, can kill the whole process, so I usually never record it. I prefer to simply says directly the stuff spontaneously, good if someone recalled it (usually my sister, she enjoy when I end up doing it, because she says that I'm turning into a poet out of nowhere, lol), otherwise, fine.
    Hope you will have the chance to learn musical writing and put down some of your musics, could be cool to hear it ! If you need a bit of help regarding learning music writing (basics) I can help, plus gotta make me back on music theory.

    I think that music, like writing, and all form of arts have and intuitive aspect that appeal to NF types ?
