It's official -- I'm freaking PSYCHIC!!

I had a dream the other night that I was in this town that I used to work in in China. It was a long, vivid dream. When I woke, I thought: I'll have to tell this to my friend (who I worked there with). I got my coffee, got on the computer to send her a message and there was a message from her, saying that she was going to that city to work! It's been 5 years since her or I were there!

Psychic.

Today I walked out onto the porch and I started thinking about another old friend of mine who I haven't seen in about 3 years (or talked to either). Just out of the blue I was thinking of her.
Not an hour later, I check Facebook and I've got a friends' invite from her!!!!

Psychic!!

And this is just this week! Okay, well, this stuff doesn't happen too often but still. What's going on?

Hm...I should play the lottery.

So, INFP's -- similar stories?? Are we just that good?:tongue:

When I was 9 years old in primary school, I had a premonition in the middle of a maths class. Nutshell: guy on motorbike, saw colour of leathers, bike, car he hit that pulled out on him, knew he died on impact with road because his spine was snapped - he flipped over the car bonnet and landed hard on his back.

A few days later, a one of my dads friends died in the exact same way. All the details matched up perfectly; my parents were freaked out.

Hell I could go on and on about this kind of thing - I've had loads of weird phenomena in my life. Best thing? I think it's all BS :p I can't explain it but I'm sure there's a perfectly good scientific reasoning. Maybe it's true that our conciousness is external and we can project it. Meh.

Maybe we're just really in tune with people and our intuition? Is that possible?

I wish I was psychic, half the time I don't even know what colour underwear or socks I'm wearing of if I'm even wearing any (I'm deadly serious about that.)

But Amanda I must say that if you are psychic, that is pretty damn badass. You should enter the lottery and if you could buy me a ticket as well please? I promised someone a few million if I ever won and I think they want to collect it some point in this lifetime. Thanks :happy:

Hmm, something like that haven't happened to me before, or at least that's what I remember. Well, I'm not psychic, but this is certainly interesting...

Once I picked up the phone to call my friend but I couldn't hear the dialling tone. Then I heard a voice saying "Hello?" It was him! He'd rung me just before I'd rung him but I picked up before the phone even rang. That was pretty weird but probably just a freaky coincidence.

I got a bit scared when I was 15 because one night I heard this loud, odd noise like a clock ticking, we were on a campsite so it clearly wasn't a clock and I couldn't work out where it was coming from. Then the next day while we were hiking one of the people we met that day ended up having a fall and dying. Then a month or so later I heard the same noise at my house and again couldn't find where it was coming from, and the next day my uncle died. That was a bit horrible. I started dreading the noise but thankfully it stopped after that and again was probably just another weird coincidence.

*sighs* I WISH!!

I thought so! I mean the dream was enough for a while -- that happens every once in a year or two to me, something big like that, but then this too and just a couple of days later? Why is it always related to people though? Why not numbers and money?:tongue:

The noise and then dead people is weird. Don't think of me tonight...:unsure:

a lot if this has happened to me in exact ways.
before, I remember feeling guilty about it because i knew I could have saved someone, but then again I only thought they were dreams that coincided with reality. it might be that we are also in tune with intuition, sounds more reasonable(im still uncertain).

You're just in denial about you being dead.

I read somewhere that INFJs often believe they are psychic - and it's because they're so intuitive. I suppose we are close enough and we very intuitive so I imagine its pretty similar.

I do often get wierd coincidences, but I believe its pure intuition. Like, once, I was passing notes with a guy friend and all of a sudden I knew he would ask me out. Next thing I know, I get a note saying so. I try to figure out how I can tell, and I always wonder if I unconsciously pick up on his body language or something. I've been able to tel almost straight away when other guys like me too. I guess what I'm getting for my birthday a week ahead of time. And other things - I think something, and I'm like "It's not logical, don't think that" and then I'm RIGHT in the end. It's pretty sweet - I love my intuition.

I used to not trust my intuition very much but ever since I found out about personality types and how intuitive I am (I test as almost 100% intuitive) I've begun to try to trust it more. I've also begun to realize I use intuition for things I've never even noticed, I just thought it was stuff everyone could do. Like, I can zone out in class yet be able to answer the question when the teacher calls, and I believe that I can absorb the lesson even when I'm zoned out. I think its because when I'm dazed, I will pick up just enough words to fill in the blank.

Oh, I have a funny story about my intuition. When I ride the bus, my intuition has memorized all the turns and bumps in the road and peripheral views so I will get on, settle down for the ride, and get absorbed into a book, and my intuition always tells me when I get there and I look up right when we're reaching the stop. Whenever there's a sub and we take a different route, however, I will, without fail, miss my stop if I'm absorbed in my book because my intuition doesn't sense my arrival at the stop.

Yes, I heard that INFJ's were supposed to be really psychic as well (?) or more so than INFP's? IDK. All I know is that I seem to be.

I doubt mine a lot of the time too! Sometimes a thought comes into my head and I dismiss it because it's sooo ridiculous. For instance, I took one look at my sister-in-law and knew she was pregnant. I practically saw the baby superimposed in an instant when I looked at her. It was so fast but powerful, still I dismissed it because...no way.

Later that day, after they arrive home, my brother calls to tell us that she is pregnant (she'd bought a home pregnancy test on the way home because her period was late).

So, since all of this and other things have happened to me, I trust it a lot more too and usually I go with it especially if there is no harm or embarrassment involved. lol. Or I at least consider.
But it's still those fleeting "psychic" thoughts that are tricky. It takes more effort to acknowledge them and consider them.

Interesting...I also test around 90% Intuitive. and 90% Feeling.

How can we possibly know this stuff?

This phenomenon is one of my favorite infp perks :happy:

I have an INFJ friend who i'm constantly sharing psychic experiences with... we'll say 2 words to each other about some impulse and minutes later the rest of the room catches up and discusses it.

I had an INFJ friend IRL for a little bit and it was INSANE the "psychic" energy just crackled.

You're very lucky!!

Bwah! I've actually dreamt of my own death three times. Once I got shot in the chest in an armed robbery, once a nuclear bomb got dropped on my house, and once I was struck by lightning on top of a building.

So maybe I am and just didn't know it....

....What are all you lot doing here then???

Sometimes I think about one of my friends and that it would be neat to spend some time with him and then he'll call asking if I want to hang out. And I can even "decide" which day too; Monday I was thinking about one of my friends who I hadn't hung out with for a while and I thought I'd give him a call tomorrow (Thuesday). Thuesday ("tomorrow") I had forgotten all about it, but he called me.

I also sometimes just know things that are going to happen, even though they seem unlikely to happen. I can't really think of any examples right now..

Sometimes I just get what I want without even trying. I've been so incredibly lucky so many times in my life that it just too good to be random. I mean, I actually believe that the only reason I can't find a job is because, secretly, I don't want one. I need one, no doubt.. But that's not enough, apparantly..

But I find that there are many things I don't really need to worry about, because they usually resolve themselves in ways that seem almost magical. And it's happened to me so many times that I'm beginning to almost accept it as a fact of life...


But I think, with the foreshadowing thing, that it might not be as magical as it seems; Se picks a lot of sensible, tangible information and makes judgements out of that (like if the wind comes from west and there's a nasty weather west from where you live, there's a decent chance it might rain in the near future) while our Ne picks a lot of abstract, untangible information and makes judgements out of that (like you have a feeling it's going to rain, but you don't know how you know it - though it probably has something to do with you sensing the humidity and the air preassure; for N's it's more about the result of the equation while for S's it's more about the equation itself).

I don't know if this makes any sense at all...

Oh, wow - that is really strange! My gran always hears three loud bangs just before someone dies. She's had it all her life so she's learned how to deal with it.

Also (and I know this sounds incredible but it's true; my dad is as honest as honest can be) my dad sees the Grim Reaper before people in the family die. Apparently a monk accompanies him too :S but yeah, whenever my dad sees him, a close family member passes within a week or so. He says that there's no avoiding him either - you can be in a pitch black room but he'll be there, clearly visible somehow.

Ugh.

I'll come back to this thread later and share some of my experiences :)

All of this happens to me. And I know what you're talking about with the N vs. S. I love N, and it seems like so much work for those poor S types to have to go through that thought process, while with N it's like instant knowing.

That sometimes happens to me. There's more to dreams than people realize. I will have a very vivid dream of myself being in a certain situation, in a certain place, and a day to a few later I'll be living my dream. It freaks me out every time =/
