At least we are all mostly excited to be fellow daydreamers, not distraught to learn we have a disorderOh geez...they make everything a "condition" now. Yes, I am an imaginative person. Yes, I have a vivid inner world.
- Do repetitive movements while daydreaming (pacing or twirling hair usually)
- Often listen to music while daydreaming, & even purposely use it to block out other people (with headphones) to daydream
- Probably daydream more than is usual
- Have fantasies that are very vivid
- Can become emotionally attached to the characters I create within my daydreams
- Sometimes express the emotions I am feeling in my daydreams, but only when alone
I do not believe this is trauma-coping mechanism for me. I have not had any serious trauma or abuse in my life. I suppose if that's the case for someone, then maybe it is a "problem", but I don't find it a problem for me.
And UGH, why do I get the feeling this is just some extremely unimaginative, pragmatic person turning yet another common INFP trait into a "disorder"? I'm proud of my imaginaton & day-dreaminess. This is an exploration process that results in a lot of positive things for me.
