    Default When your mind drifts...

    When your mind drifts, on what subjects do you tend to think about most and perhaps why?

    It all depends. For me, usually either the past and what I should have done differently (in specific situations, not in general), or the future and where I want to go.
    INTJ.

    What I'd rather be doing, mostly, which tends to be either sex, drugs, or being with my friends. Or Socionics.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    (another invader of alpha here)

    When my mind drifts (which is very often), it sometimes goes to socionics (as in "I wonder what type so-and-so is) but it often goes to creative projects and what I'm going to work on next. Occasionally I imagine future conversations or situations and try to project how they will go based on what I know of the persons involved. I also sometimes remember past images like movie stills or something of a moment that I enjoyed.

    1.Sex

    2. Whatever subject I am currently looking into.
    I know a little bit about a lot of things...because I am not a TV person.
    If I find a subject interesting, even if it has no tie to me or anyone I know...I will find myself researching it.

    3. Conversations with whomever I am thinking about regarding sex. ha!
    Sometimes I am slow on the uptake, because I have to look at every single fact of things, and link them all together to 'get it' to my satisfaction....

    This reminds me of one of my best friends (who is also INTj). She's not as into sex though, LOL But she looks at all the facts, does her research on whatever she's interested in. In fact, I go to her and get her opinion on lots of stuff because she's so thorough.

    I understand the INTj-ish stuff, but my mind doesn't drift at all. It's always on what I am doing physically or paying attention to at the moment. I have trouble tuning stuff out in general.

    I liken it to Zen though; when I am the most in the moment, that is when my mind drifts.

    But then to me it's not really drifting. What you're describing sounds like Ni, no?

    Yes, but it is in a 8th function role.
