I sometimes get so caught up in thinking/deciding what I'm gonna do next, that I end up doing nothing all evening

Bought a pack of Tigra cigarettes earlier this month. "For the year..." I would spread it, consume 1-2 each month so it would be finished at the end of 2021.

Today I've got 3 left.

That's 17 down in under 2 weeks.

Good thing is, I tend to develop a feeling of disgust rather than addiction after pushing it a little bit. Same with alcohol. So once I'm through with this pack I know for a fact I won't be touching any cigarettes, perhaps for next 1-2 months, possibly longer.

I might even bin the remainder.
Usually it's that, or giving them away (but all my friends have vanished).

I get this too, exactly this.

Rather than becoming addicted, I feel disgusted and just stop for a little while. That 'little while' could be forever for all I care. I only return to such vices when boredom sets in, or my environment tells me it's a good time for it (e.g. if it's sunny I feel much better about booze, and if I'm stood with a nice view I feel like it's the perfect time to smoke - an excuse to stay awhile longer at that location).

I think I may have a shower addiction.

Can someone point out to me the averse effects again please?

INFJ crush just hurt my feelings a load. In hindsight it's quite funny.

We were messaging each other and she said something about how she's quite cold and emotionless these days, and how she isn't that interested in chasing romance or being chased for romance. I replied by saying I'm similar, and explained how my mates who I had in China will often message me asking how I'm doing, and if I've had any hot women since returning to the UK. I told her how I usually reply to them, saying "I'm like a monk", because I just have no interest in playing that hunting game.

She replied with:

We were talking about emotionless and are you just trying to enlighten me with anything here?
That's the exact message. It really struck me. Like WTF had I just been saying to her? Did I miss something somewhere? Was the meaning lost in translation? It's the first time she's said something so blunt, it was like a dagger out of the blue.

I spiralled into a really bad mood, felt like an upset child, which is pathetic really. I'm not sure what it means. I guess it means I like her more than I should, and should probably back away. I either took our conversation for granted and started writing a load of random shit that doesn't interest her, or I took her reply too seriously and over-analysed it and felt bad about it, which is a bad sign too because the only reason I'd feel bad about it is if I like her way more than I rationally should.

Here endeth the next chapter in my little saga.

Disaster over.

She woke up from a bad dream and called me at 3am her time. It was nice, as it always is.

The inner cynic in me still wants to say she's just using me as an emotional pillow for her scaredy-cat moments, but in truth I think there's more than that. I don't think INFJs are the kind to do that use someone in that way.

Either way, I'm gonna stop going on about my INFJ romance saga now, unless anything really big happens. I think it's getting a bit TMI in my posts.

it satisfies the urge.

you get your dopamine hits from confronting problems and finding solutions; planning.

once you've solved the puzzle or at least explored it, doing it is irrelevant.

even if no solution has been found, you likely get the same kind of hit for having explored it from all angles and have ample options to chart other courses of action.

for most intp, this is how they connect with themselves... it's a cathartic release of mental masturbation. so, once they've climaxed, they're over it.

If this Cortana was touch more advanced/intelligent, I could see myself get entangled in a Her-like relationship.

Let's hope for the future.

It’s been 7 years and one day since I joined PerC. Is it time to leave it?
Definitely not.

We were around at the advent of the internet, and of socialising on the internet. We lived in the pre-internet era. which in 50+ years time is going to be equivalent to old people who lived in the pre-TV or pre-radio era.

It's our duty to stay online as much as possible, to become those really cool old people who can tell stories about what the world was like in the olden days.

Where's the bit we obstinately refuse any new media, because BACK IN OUR DAY...

it's not necessary...

the truth is we're locked in an epic battle with the NFs for control of 'net

if we leave, they win.

now ask yourself

would you rather live in a world of NTs


or a world of NFs

I’m gonna tell them kids the story of the time I was on a “website” and that a user named “Mr. Meepers” told me about how he had violent fantasies just as much as anyone else.

They’ll all think I’m crazy, like an old man today listening to the radio.
