When I'm on break from school and work, I lose most incentive to know what day or date it is. Except for the webcomics. xkcd, every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
Sometimes, my mind randomly spits out a word or phrase. Normal people would google it, but I like to challenge myself by trying to recall what that word is and why it's significant. Sometimes it pops up immediately, sometimes it takes a while. I've been known to forget both the word and my quest to remember it, then weeks later, I remember everything about it. I remember the question, the word that prompted the question, and the answer. Crazy game I play with myself.
This has some consequences, though. I was on academic bowl through most of my high school years, and I randomly thought of the word "Diocletian." It was a Thursday or Friday, so I spent a few moments trying to remember what "Diocletian" was, but came up with nothing. It bugged me throughout the weekend, but I didn't want to dig out my world history notes, so I just let it sit. Every Monday night from September to December was an Academic Bowl tournament, so Monday night, I'd mostly forgotten "Diocletian." One of the questions that came up was "Which Roman emperor divided the Roman empire into the Eastern and Western Empires?" Teams are given 20-30 seconds to buzz in and give an answer. No one buzzed in. The answer: Diocletian. Ugh.
It's also fun to re-trace trains of thought, especially if it has been derailed at some point.
ESFP, like Jim Carey.
Here's him squaring off against a famous ENFJ:
I always thought HR might have been an INTJ.
I listened to him in Black Flag and later in Rollins Band and he sang about introspection and hating being told how to feel and what to think. I related to his lyrics a fair bit. He's much older now and a lot more harder to pick since his functions would have leveled out now.
