    Default Behaviour and Anxiety

    How do you all act when anxious? Is it possibly function related?

    When anxious I am excessively cheerful (perhaps creative function?)

    How about you?

    I either shut down completely, or become very snappish. But usually I just shut down and can't function at all - I can't decide anything at all.

    For me, anxiety is caused by all those possibilities of meaning and actions that are jumping around in my head so fast that I can't possibly process them. Because each environmental influence creates even more branches of possibilities, I find myself having to wrap myself up in a mental cloak of protection. *giggles at the d&d style image*...*clears throat* Each time something from my environment breaks through (someone/thing calling my attention from processing those possibilities) it is physically as well as mentally painful. Thus, I strike out to make the influence stop.

    So, in summary...when I am anxious, I get very irritable and can sometimes lash out quickly before just as quickly withdrawing again. (In socionics terms, one could say that my out of control Ne (anxiousness) is attempting to be balanced by my Fi (weighing of attract/repel aka emotions towards each Ne-d thought) and Fi security/stability is protected by Se (repelling/stopping/blocking external environmental factors).

    I get irritable and aggressive, sometimes overly active..I try to find an outlet for those feelings and if i can't, watch out! I snap. I also get really talkative, which is strange.

    I get a worried look on my face, I tend to become more introspective and I look preoccupied, and I pace around wherever I am at quickly and endlessly. I find that physical movement helps alleviate nervousness/anxiety.

    I tend to zone out, and be less present.

    I become really fussy and hypersensitive to sensory stimulation, while at the same time losing my awareness of the outside world and getting "tunnel vision" so to speak. I feel like all my clothes fit badly and are full of itchy powder. I can't get comfortable.

    Usually my thoughts don't involve language, but when I'm anxious I start thinking repetitively in fragmented english. I recall bad experiences from the past and feel guilt, which is often accompanied by inadvertently vocalising my stream of thought. If you hear me randomly say "Never again" or "Fuck" without context, I'm probably in this state. I become aware that I'm saying things with no context and realise I'm powerless to do anything about because I can't consciously change my line of thought.

    I try to fall back on Ne: I emphasise my eccentricities and try to make interesting observations about the world around me - however I'm unable to do so because of the tunnel vision and narrow thought patterns.

    It is all very valuabe info, when do we start actually summarise the topics and bring some interesting conclusions or simply save some summeris in the memory bank. Can we create something like a memory bank with all interesting findings or ideas? I know I am silly...

    No you are not! The only thing is you need to realize that collective memory already exists it is just not nearly as efficient as it could be. This is why I want a mental internet to be created so that we could save all of this within one another.

    I do the exact same thing too. Whoa, I read that, and was like, "Jeez, that's me!"

    Default Idea

    1. I think it would be very intersting if people who makes threads (which get successfull with many ohter members replied) would summarise it at the end. May be the authours can write a brief conclusion or short report at the end of the thread. Then they can create their personal bank or we could organise like a database with alphabetic order from A to Z. Anxiaty would for example fit under A. I am not sure whom do we need to contact as regards to this site, is it Metaivan or who?

    2. I also think that people on this forum may have particular interests about socionics and there meay be some sort of consistency in their threads. It would be good if they could choose a topic (e.g brain functionning and socionincs, or the difference between MBTI and socionics) and could collect the material which could be used later either as an article on this forum+ other forums? or may be presented later at the conference?
    3. We have got so much of a raw material saved on this forum that it would be probably enough for a book. However it is very valueable information and we could do something constructive about it. I remember it was a talk some time ego about conference and I think it would be great to meet up one day but ... it would be even better if would organise it properly. I am sure we have got plenty of talented uncertified
    socionics' enthusiasts who would be interested in foundation of english speaking socionic community, how does it sound, by the way?

    Only when I'm thinking about something that's anxiety or guilt producing.

    usually my stomach churns acid at an incredible rate. i'll get jumpy if i'm lost in the car and have to do something out of the ordinary routine. or if i'm about to execute a plan that i've been going over in my head.

    it might be function related, as i over process the information. when anxious i'm a bit sick feeling, and a bit jumpy. i'm not sure if i ever came off as cheerful....
