I am curious about something,
Okay we all know we have these thoughts that we think, these perceptions and subjective insights we have about things, that we analyze according to a whole bunch of shit. This is what creates our internal fields of like/dislike, love/hate all that good stuff. (I'm not talking about socionics Fi either btw which is why it's not in the socionics thread) Whether these pure thoughts are right or wrong or just an illusion/ego is not what I'm going to get into, I want to ask:
what is your main methods of dealing with these thoughts, ie how do you handle your thoughts?
1. Meditate as much as possible so you are really not thinking much at all and you're kinda just sitting there, enjoying things emotionally (but remember living life is bound to create new thoughts) Since it's impossible to stop thinking though this really just means you dwell on a few particular thoughts for a long, deep time.
2. You say whatever it is that's on your mind as soon as the thoughts come up, your thoughts match up with what you do pretty easily. If you're not 'doing something about it' even if seems futile, you don't feel good. It's like you can't tell where you and your thoughts end. This sometimes makes you look "thoughtless" or crass to others. ps: This doesn't include writing down your thoughts.
3. You let your thoughts consume you and just let them play out in your mind until you are energized or until you set on a course of action. Or until you are driven insane. This leads to either extreme fear and self-loathing or extreme enlightenment and finding the best and ideal course of action to quickly rise to a goal, mentally morphing all obstacles beforehand. (#1 form of thought-dealing would just help you prepare for this step)
4. You creatively find a way to express your thoughts, and you feel comfort knowing other people share the same thoughts as you do. You don't really say your own thoughts as much as you play therapist with other's thoughts, but people sharing their disturbing thoughts help you deal with your own.
5. You just think nonstop and there isn't a rhyme or reason, you just....think and think and think and you sort of drift. You can't stop your thoughts, but they don't really drive you crazy. There's no desire to do or not do anything whatsoever about your thoughts, you just let them happen so indifferently. It's like pure psychological neutrality.
6. Immediately go out and observe/collect data if the pure thoughts are true or not. Unlike #2 you don't speak what's on your mind as it comes up, you go look for objective evidence to give your thoughts more weight. However this probably might make you look like a dull person since your thoughts have no subjectivity or levels of 'interest' to them as they are completely validated on the world that already exists instead of in possible potentialities.
