I'm Freaking PSYCHIC!

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!


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!!!!


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:

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.

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...
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.
