No, tell me you did not do this...Oh heavens, no.
Yep, similar for me, which i described here: http://personalitycafe.com/infj-forum-protectors/59283-infjs-you-impossibly-weird-4.html (#37). And yes, i've also thought of it as perhaps being animistic.I've always had an animist sensibility which pops up from time to time. Most recently, I bought a book light which turned out to be a piece of shit basically, so I went and got two newer, better ones. When I set them down next to the old crappy one I felt so bad for its feelings because its hopes of being loved by a new owner were dashed and it was quickly condemned to be cast aside and wallow in worthlessness.
