  1. [Generation Y] The first song you remember? (Sensory Memories?)

    Generation Y Forum
    Now, I know this can be an odd question, because some different factors come into it. Like, the first song I ACTIVELY remember listening to as a song was Alanis Morissette's "Head Over Feet" back when I was like 7 in the year 2000. BUT A little while later I heard this song when my sister was...

  4. "Rear View Mirror" (Poem)

    Blog
    I'll move away from this place Until my flesh is in its proper place Until my head is in a better space Till I can move a faster pace I'll let you miss me if you so choose But I will fade further from memory The less from me you hear The more distant I will appear With each passing year My image...
  5. Si - the past colors the present, Se - the present colors the past?

    Cognitive Functions
    Trying to clarify a vague impression I've got here. I'd be interested in seeing if it matches other's experience. The thought struck me the other day when a friend was asking my husband about his schedule. My husband's response surprised me because we've kind of been off the 'norm' (as in how...
  6. [INFJ] INFJs and Memory

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Today I multiple instances at work where I simply could not remember words in conversation as well as events in a TV show I had just watched the night before. It becomes embarrassing when I'm at a loss to describe something so simple. I'm wondering why this is. Why do so many INFJs have trouble...
  7. [INTJ] Our Learning Habits (and Memory)

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Sit down, grab a coffee why don't you? Learning habits, and your memory, how do you function the best? This question is aimed at INTJs only, so may the wrath of <your prefered deity> come upon you for derailing this, unless you make peace offerings with coffee (no Starbucks!). I have found...
  8. [INTP] Complete the Pattern

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Fellow INTPs, I need to come up with more stimuli for a study. I have ~100 of these and need ~100 more -- any additions to the list would be greatly appreciated! AMBIGUOUS --> SEMANTIC --> PERCEPTUAL dish --> cup --> frisbee pillow --> blanket --> marshmallow spaghetti --> sauce --> string...
  9. [ISTJ] ISTJ Love Questions

    ISTJ Forum - The Duty Fulfillers
    So a male ISTJ cuts off contact with someone he loves because he doesn't want her to focus on him. If you were this ISTJ, would you re-connect with the person if you were over her? If not, why would you never want to talk to her again? Is it safe to assume that the ISTJ still wants to be with...
  10. Because, you know, forget homework. Thanks, Columbus.

    Blog
    That's a good a reason as any to write a blog post right? I mean regardless if I write this or not I'm going to be up until about 2 again. Ah the glories of being a college student. This graph has never been more applicable: And right now I'm in the zombie category. But, in honor of Columbus...
  11. What function causes this weird memory thing?

    Cognitive Functions
    If I look at/hear/do something while thinking/hearing/doing something else, I sort of re-experience the thought/sound/action. For example, once I was playing Yoshi’s Island while watching Seinfeld. I died, went back the level’s beginning, and laughed. I hadn’t been paying much attention the...
  12. [INTP] (depressed) INTPs are less "adaptive"

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Read the article and contemplate the complications... Depressed brains are less 'plastic' › News in Science (ABC Science) Nevermind, I'll just give them to you: If say the majority of INTPs are depressed. then Consider whether you consider yourself adaptive or not. Do you see other...
  13. [INFJ] Memory and Distractions

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hi guys, I was just wondering if there were any other INFJs that can relate to this: Sometimes after either a distraction or having to focus on more than one thing at once, I can completely forget what I was thinking about or what I was doing/about to do, and then suddenly the answer will...
  14. [INTP] Do people think you have a bad memory?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I have part of wikipedia's definition of existentialism memorized verbatim, but I forget every conversation I have and over half of what happens in every movie that I watch. I assume this is because we are more interested in the big picture than details, as has been covered many times. But I...

  16. [INTP] How Do You Remember What You Enjoy Doing?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    How do you maintain traction on the things you enjoy? I go through so many ideas and interests that sometimes it's easy to forget what's enjoyable over a long time period. It is often challenging to maintain any traction or even remember what those things are, since I'm always exploring new...
  17. [INTP] The INTP Files

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I'm shocked at how much other people remember about the contents of my brain, statements I made years ago, preferences about things. Even when I haven't spoken to someone for years, they recount specific things I've said. It has a few effects. I know that someone values my thoughts, and that...
  18. [INFP] Your first transcendental experience

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    What was your first transcendental experience that you remember? I was in the second grade and I remember standing in front of the fence and staring at it. I could not believe it but my eyes were spontaneously going in and out of focus so that the chain links of the fence were forming...
  19. Memory/Mnemonic Techniques

    General Psychology
    I'm curious to know what kind of memory or mnemonic technique(s) people use to help them remember and retain information. Personally I don't use any technique(s). Actually I got the idea for this thread because I noticed I tend to encode information poorly. So, what kind of "techniques" do you...
  20. [INTP] Is the idea of a 'mind palace' at all compatible with the INTP mind?

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Look, I'm going to admit that I first heard of it in Sherlock, but apparently, it's a real thing, so. Here's a link on how to make it work: another boy who lived - How To Build Your Own Mind Palace Basically you've got an imaginary room or palace or what have you in your head, and you store...
