Some infj experience , that they can relive some past experience vividly, it s really like having a way back time machine we can use it when we want .


there is two recent thread in Infj dom that was related to this

http://personalitycafe.com/infj-forum-protectors/91797-haunted-past-environments.html

http://personalitycafe.com/infj-for...rsations-bringing-them-up-scaring-others.html


Here is basically how it works :

"When remember exactly how it was , just back to this moment (like in movie ) , and relive the experience (thankx to si function ) , then I relive my emotional state , then I remember what caused this emotionnal state , so I can remember what had been said exactly . "

I was wondering as Si is inferior function for ENFP , How do you deal with it ? and how does it bother you ?

I will add the fact , that it 's not only remember something , it s really Live it back then , all my body can feel , sens , all atmosphere , light or dark , smell , the posture , the gesture , the state of mind ...

it s not like daydreaming , it s much like dreaming in litteral sens , it s really a way back machine.

Hmmm, it's not quite that strong for me. I will remember where we were and where we were standing. If we were sitting, I'll remember exactly where, possibly even remember what we were both wearing, or what I was doing right befor or after the conversation. I might remember how I felt if the conversation was emotional at all (this is stronger when remembering childhood memories). I'll remember their body language and facial expressions. It will really come to life for me, like in a flash if I pick up a smell that takes me back to that time (which is more Se). The emotion remembered in the interaction seems to soften over time for me; that part doesn't seem to remain quite as vivid.

I also link music to memories. When I hear a song, it can take me back to a certain time, and I will remember how I felt, what the style was, the people in my life, etc. Again that is more Se, like the smell memory sparker...weird stuff :)

What you're describing sounds like flashbacks to me. Do they come with any memory? Happy, sad, traumatic, etc. or do they only seem to come from negative memories?
I can remember happy memory or sad one. But usually sad one are in some inconscious , sometime it appaear when I talk with a friend . It also appaer in dream.
But for happy memory I don't need conscious effort, it all back in a golden plate bring from my subconscious (it s seems there is some kind of bridge between conscious and subconsious , make it easy ) . I can do it at will. But more and more there is meaning from past (for exemple talking about a friend or a situation , or listen music ) then just back. But i don't need a lot of energy to put it in order to command it back. It s like all the information that was absorbed during the past time is suddenly back.

Ho yeah I always feel that I m like a sponge absorbing information , mood , talk , ambiance , sound ... from all my sens
