When someone says you're weird "even for you".

When you think Sensors seem to be "missing" something, and the Sensors think you aren't all there.

When you carry on a conversation with a Sensor and feel like your discussion is the appetizer and you're waiting to move on to the meat, and the Sensor thinks it is the meat and wants to backtrack to the appetizer.

When you spend several moments walking around looking for something you've been carrying in your hand.

When you've seen something every day, and only processed it days/months/years later.

When you leave the card table for a minute, come back, play an entire round of the game, then have your roommates burst into laughter because you didn't notice your cards that had been sitting face-up on the table when you left were now facing the wrong direction, even despite having turned one of them around to read it!

When "I'm bored" actually means "give me something to think about".

When the real world bores you.

When you can spend hours talking theory about something you'll never do.

When you're attracted to people because you could spend a lifetime learning what's in their head. When you find men who are so lost in the caves of their mind that you have to take them by the hand and lead them gently into the light and say, "Okay, honey, the real world needs you just for a moment, and then you can go back to living in your head," adorable. When you want to crawl into these men's minds and stand at the edge and marvel in wonder at the world within, even if only for a moment. When you fall in love with an intellectual and want to cuddle his brain/mind. :tongue:

When books are your best friends.

When you were a child, you'd ask your parents to read you that fairy tale one more time.

When you think people much older than you are more interesting than "kids your own age", even once you're well into adulthood.

When you're in third grade and your bus pulls up to the school, you wait patiently in your bus seat for the other kids to go by so you can get off in a more efficient manner, then start when the bus driver asks if you're going to go in, and you realize that you watched all the kids get off the bus and go inside the school, and didn't even notice because you were so lost in thought.

When you think if you were normal, you would bore yourself to tears.

When you watch Star Trek and Picard asks the Klingons what they want him to do with the dead Klingon's body and they say, "It is only an empty shell now. Please treat it as such," and you realize this is how you've always viewed funeral planning, because your body is merely that which houses your true self.

When the English language is a piss-poor medium for communication
When sensors think you're a bit stupid because you say things like 'holy pressure plates Batman, I just figured out how traffic lights work!'
When you're always going on about how you just figured something out, but you're often unable to explain what it is or provide any examples
When your idea of a joke is 'shuttlecock: a tour bus for fleas'
When your train of thought forks and you try to follow both paths at once, but end up thinking about the pesky limitations of your human brain instead
When you then spend ten minutes backtracking mentally because you still want to think about those interesting things, but you can't remember what they are

Happens a lot to me.


When "I'm bored" actually means "give me something to think about".
Well put!!! I get restless when I'm "bored"

I run into problems when I spend this time arguing with someone even if it's sort of irrelevant since I'lll never be in that position of "doing" whatever it is we're discussing.

When you're attracted to people because you could spend a lifetime learning what's in their head.

Have been dating my bf for 10 months and STILL can't get him to open up about certain things. I'm usually great at getting anyone to open up but some of those feelings and experiences are buried deep. He is good at expressing emotions like affectionate love, annoyance but won't tell me WHY he feels the way he does sometimes... won't say deep down why he thinks/feels that way. Am in the process of forcing him to take the Jung/MB test but my guess is he's an INTJ with a creative streak....

You're having a talk with your careers counsellor and all of a sudden you picture dolphins jumping behind your counsellor's back and bursting in flames and this all describes perfectly how confused you are about your future.
HAHAHA. I am not going to be able to get your image of exploding dolphins out of my head when I think of my uncertain future. Hilarious. What a perfect symbol too!!! If the smart, graceful, talented dolphin is my potential and my pioneer towards my future career.... And then my dolphin spontaneously combusts.... definitely my fault. I need to stop lighting my dolphin on fire with my uncertaintly and tendancy to have too many passions and not enough dedication....

Ok it is late at night here and I am not making sense. But your comment made me laugh :laughing::laughing::laughing:

When you think everything's complex, and people always miss something, and you feel like there was an universal plot and connection between EVERYTHING (Ne more than Ni, don't you?)
And
when you are always thinking and lost in the jnugle of concepts, and feel nice while doing it.

When you are fascinated with your dreams because they allow you to indulge your underlying tendency (which you are reluctant to admit to sometimes) to be fixated on archetypes, symbols, metaphors, the subconscious, and things which seem vague and somewhat mystic.

...You are surprised by your friends being so concerned that you didn't notice them doing something right in front of you about ten seconds ago.

...People think you're stoned when you think you're just talking about something related to whatever was being discussed.

When you laugh about thoughts/memories that didn't even happen, Then start laughing about thoughts that could happen.

When someone asks you why you decided to pick one thing over the other, you explain that it just "felt right" to you and that you "just knew" it was the way to go.

When you see something coming a mile away or a brilliant answer pops into your head and people are astounded by your ingenuity, but when they ask how you came to that conclusion, you can't tell them because you don't really know yourself.

When you have to hold yourself back from clicking Thanks for nearly every post on this thread!

When you learn you're an INTJ and get emotional (yes, it happens! :tongue:) because suddenly you realize there's at least one person in this world that "gets" you...and you marvel that you've never even met this person! And despite having your entire world view written out in plain English for everyone to see, the very small handful of people who actually take the time to read it go "meh" because they're not an INTJ. Of course, you could probably substitute just about any type there...

When you want to shoot people who try to make you into an ESFX woman, and you can't even explain that to them, because they have no idea what an ESFJ or ESFP is, let alone take any interest in it. Again, this probably applies to multiple types.

When something dies in you just a tiny bit every time someone tells you "you're weird" or "why can't you be normal" because you don't know how they can't see that you're the incredibly amazing person you are because you're not normal!
