Like WQ's Sensor thread, but about iNtuitives.
When you think of about five or more different concepts of time whilst walking to the kitchen but fail to notice that you forgot to open the door before trying to walk through it...
... You walk into people, trees, walls, doors, furniture and whatnot, because you're too busy contemplating the meaning of life.
Edit: Totally got ninja'd. xD Guess I'm not the only one that walks into stuff then..
...you go off on seemingly random tangents during conversations.
When someone says you're weird "even for you".
When you think Sensors seem to be "missing" something, and the Sensors think you aren't all there.
When you carry on a conversation with a Sensor and feel like your discussion is the appetizer and you're waiting to move on to the meat, and the Sensor thinks it is the meat and wants to backtrack to the appetizer.
When you spend several moments walking around looking for something you've been carrying in your hand.
When you've seen something every day, and only processed it days/months/years later.
When you leave the card table for a minute, come back, play an entire round of the game, then have your roommates burst into laughter because you didn't notice your cards that had been sitting face-up on the table when you left were now facing the wrong direction, even despite having turned one of them around to read it!
When "I'm bored" actually means "give me something to think about".
When the real world bores you.
When you can spend hours talking theory about something you'll never do.
When you're attracted to people because you could spend a lifetime learning what's in their head. When you find men who are so lost in the caves of their mind that you have to take them by the hand and lead them gently into the light and say, "Okay, honey, the real world needs you just for a moment, and then you can go back to living in your head," adorable. When you want to crawl into these men's minds and stand at the edge and marvel in wonder at the world within, even if only for a moment. When you fall in love with an intellectual and want to cuddle his brain/mind.
When books are your best friends.
When you were a child, you'd ask your parents to read you that fairy tale one more time.
When you think people much older than you are more interesting than "kids your own age", even once you're well into adulthood.
When you're in third grade and your bus pulls up to the school, you wait patiently in your bus seat for the other kids to go by so you can get off in a more efficient manner, then start when the bus driver asks if you're going to go in, and you realize that you watched all the kids get off the bus and go inside the school, and didn't even notice because you were so lost in thought.
When you think if you were normal, you would bore yourself to tears.
When you watch Star Trek and Picard asks the Klingons what they want him to do with the dead Klingon's body and they say, "It is only an empty shell now. Please treat it as such," and you realize this is how you've always viewed funeral planning, because your body is merely that which houses your true self.
When you spend more time in your head than in your house.
When the English language is a piss-poor medium for communication
When sensors think you're a bit stupid because you say things like 'holy pressure plates Batman, I just figured out how traffic lights work!'
When you're always going on about how you just figured something out, but you're often unable to explain what it is or provide any examples
When your idea of a joke is 'shuttlecock: a tour bus for fleas'
When your train of thought forks and you try to follow both paths at once, but end up thinking about the pesky limitations of your human brain instead
When you then spend ten minutes backtracking mentally because you still want to think about those interesting things, but you can't remember what they are
…you wonder what it would be like to be a tire, and all the shit you'd have to go through.

You want the glue that binds facts together... facts aren't enough.. lists aren't enough. You crave understanding.
Well put!!! I get restless when I'm "bored"When "I'm bored" actually means "give me something to think about".I run into problems when I spend this time arguing with someone even if it's sort of irrelevant since I'lll never be in that position of "doing" whatever it is we're discussing.When you can spend hours talking theory about something you'll never do.Have been dating my bf for 10 months and STILL can't get him to open up about certain things. I'm usually great at getting anyone to open up but some of those feelings and experiences are buried deep. He is good at expressing emotions like affectionate love, annoyance but won't tell me WHY he feels the way he does sometimes... won't say deep down why he thinks/feels that way. Am in the process of forcing him to take the Jung/MB test but my guess is he's an INTJ with a creative streak....When you're attracted to people because you could spend a lifetime learning what's in their head.
