I was walking around the house this evening, doing various things in preparation to go to bed, and I realized I have this funny feeling. Kind of like hunger, with that idea of something missing; but it was not hunger, as far as I could tell. I had eaten and drunk water not long ago (long, in my case, meaning half hour). I next considered if maybe it was that I was cold, but despite wearing just a cami on my top half (jeans and slippers on the bottom half) I didn't feel really all that cold, though I guess I could be warmer on the surface of my skin.
I'm not sure how to describe the feeling. Kind of like that first warning that hunger is coming, or that initial hint to the preoccupied mind that the foot one is sitting on is tired of being sat on. Or, maybe a cousin to the homesick feeling, or distant kin to the "I'm forgetting something, I just know it" feeling. Or maybe a great uncle twice removed to that gut feeling you get five minutes before you realize that your toaster's not where you used it yesterday. Anyway, a sort of something's-missing-or-wrong-or-not-quite-right feeling, but in a physical sense, having to do with my body. It almost might be like that sort of feeling you get when you're lacking a certain nutriment and you see (or smell) a food that has that ingredient in it. Except I knew I wasn't hungry. I looked at the fridge and then the cupboard but no spark.
So, not hungry, not cold. Tired? Yes, I was a bit tired, but the tired feeling is distinct and not what was bothering me. What else is there?
I brought it up to a housemate, who started suggesting water and vitamins and sweatshirts and my bed, and then - since I was looking at a person - I got the idea that maybe I needed a hug, though I had got a nice good one from my dad earlier that evening. My housemate obliged and we hugged and the feeling subsided a bit. So maybe that's it - I'm hug deprived.
So, anyway, I'm curious about two things right now - if any of you relate to any of that and if any of you think it has any possible socionic connections or correlations. Ideas on what I'm missing are welcome, too, though not of the greatest importance, I guess.
And, yes, I know the obvious answer to some is going to be - "That's what you get for being weak in Si" Is that what it is, though? Or does it even relate?
