i can see theres a correlation between personality psychology and beliefs held.

so tell me, what uncommon beliefs you hold, when they started, changed, new ones, the whys behind your choices, and so on. also state your type, enneas and instincts for possible relevance.

i start:

since i was 7, i speculated, that life is just a flash. we think we really experience things, but in reality, your life is a mere flash. that time is just an illusion. if you take yourself a moment and refect on your entire life in a single moment, you might experience this same feeling that its all so insignificant. like it all just slips through your fingers, and theres nothing you can do to stop it. (ive also specualted that this flash could be, cause im dying, so in my dying last breaths, i see my life flash through my mind. it kinda makes sense, considering whenever you feel like your life is about to end, this happens. at least for me. its like.. wow, my life was so insignificant. and now it could all end right now.)

at around age 13, i started to believe that i dies every night, because my brains renew itself constantly, based on science. that was indeed, an emotional belief based on science, so obviously an irrational one.

but i still somehow feel like every time i go to sleep, im never oging to wake up. that whoever wakes up in my body next day, is not me.

since age 17 i learned an ability to see auras. its fun, exciting, but i honestly see no point in hedonism. so i wont use it, really. but when i have strong emotions, it always gets triggered on, despite that i dont see point in enjoyment. its paradoxical, considering i consider enjoyment the only purpose of life. ah, well, i expect everyone has trouble with their integration point. trouble, which isnt so rational at all.. =|

from somewhere around 13 onwards, ive htought, that if there was a mgic switch in my head to end my life, i wouldnt hesitate to pull it. and i think ive kept the same attitude since then, that if i could, i would just die. but i think death is not necessarily even possible, since this is a dream. or, because my unconsciousness dominates me, and theres nothing i can do about it. cause im a slave to my unconsciousness.

my most recent acquisitions include, that all pain is an illusion. just imagination. in reality, we only have signals that our body gives us, but the pain itself is just imagination. and that i can cure other peoples headaches just by looking at their eyes and just because i want it to go away, it does. and this isnt really a belief, its something i casually do. but i realize not that many do this kind of thing in my country at least.

my empathy sometimes gets into an overdrive, and if someone in the same space i spend time with, even if i dont look at them at all.. i can feel all their hidden pain, problems, insanity, emptiness, anxiety... its awful. and i know its also all right, because the people always say yes if i ask them about those things i feel from them.

i also have an ability to control atmospheres. i can make everyone feel good/better, without saying a word. maintaining a good atmopshere this way is very exhausting if people are stressed, but i can do it, provided i feel well. like today i had a very exhausting day, met my family, whom are a high pace, high stress, hedonistic never stop to take care of your emotional problems kind of variety. i made the atmospehere good, until fighting their stress had so exhausted me that i started to project my exhaustion, and everyone got super lazy/relaxed. after that, i couldnt do it anymore, and everything returned into people shouting, children cscremaing, dogs barking...

i also believe that i ultimately control all of my feelings. i can decide to feel whatever i want to feel. my feels are a mere reflection of my thinking. but since i see no point in hedonism, unless i feel like ive taken care of every problem i have, then i give myself small pauses to have an intense pleasurous moments.

your turn, and remember to mention your psychological attributes.

My uncommon beliefs would be more faith-related. As I've said before on here, I'm one of the VERY rare Christian INTPs. Growing up in church I was taught a lot of erroneous doctrine, and swallowed it unwittingly, but as I got older, I saw it for the hypocrisy that it was. After a LONG study of the Bible, and endless mental debates, I have finally discovered the true doctrine of the Gospel, which has been so distorted by man that I am surprised at discovering it. However, all the credit does not go to me. It all started when a read Leo Tolstoy's Christian manifesto called "My Religion: What I Believe". In that book he points out just how badly the church has perverted Christ's teachings over time, clarifies multiple contradictions in the Bible that used to bother me, and shows the sheer mind-blowing wisdom of Jesus's words. But then, when I began to share this enlightenment with other Christians, they would throw their beloved depravity-doctrine in my face, and whine about how no one will ever be capable of doing Christ's commands, because humans are so "evil." But regardless of what these sheep do or say, this is what I have come to believe. My uncommon belief is that believing in Christ consists of believing in His teaching, rather than in His physical body, as mainstream Christianity teaches. That's not to say that I don't believe that Christ rose from the grave and walked the earth, but that I place less importance on that fact than I do His actual words. There's a silly doctrine in protestantville which says that if a person believes in Christ's divinity, it will "cause" them to do good things. I could never accept this. There are plenty of professing Christians who make a mockery of Jesus by their lifestyle, have never helped a poor person in their life, and would stick a knife in your back without blinking. Are these good things? Of course not. And on top of this, they teach that putting Christ's words into practice will profit a person nothing, when Jesus Christ specifically says in the Gospel of Matthew that He will reward each man according to his deeds. After studying the Bible, I have come to the conclusion that Jesus Christ and His teachings are one and the same, and to believe in Him is to believe in His words, seeing them as the one true answer to life (To be specific, the sermon on the mount). I've never told anyone in my church these things, because I'm certain that they would have a cow and call me heretic, throwing their man-invented doctrines in my face. It's certainly an uncommon belief among Christians.
thats perhaps country relevant. some countries intentionally take their enemy (religion) and turn it into something completely different so those who would benefit from it cant do so. is it usa you live in?

like usa, which is a monopoly based infrastructure. based on sheer selfishness and manipulation, so im sure you can see why they would have to take out religion.
