Exactly! sometimes I feel like I need to shut my brain down not because It needs to rest but because It's working with such speed/power that I can't keep up with it !I wish I had a tail. I wish I was a cat actually. Have you ever just watched a cat? Cats are so laid back it's OFFENSIVE.
Seriously though, you're right. In fact, I'm way ahead of you. I just jumped into the shower and spent about 30 minutes relaxing in it, and now I'm going to go for a thirty minute walk down to the grocery to pick up something to snack on and a soda or something.
The thing is, I can't shut off my brain once it gets obsessed with something. I have to know it. I have to solve it. I'm driven to conclusions with such veracity that I almost hate thinking. While I was in the shower, my intuition was feeding me a shitstorm of associations and suggestions, but the one thing I tried to focus on most of all was that it felt draining to me. Behind all the brainstorming and mulling it over is this bedrock desire for an answer. The intuiting process, to me, feels like a burden when it gets drawn out and seems to be going nowhere. In fact, I dislike it so much that I'll just go, "fuck it, it's this one" and just pick something almost out of spite.
I probably am an ENTJ. If that's the case, my shadow is INTP, so maybe that's why I thought I might be an INTP? Anyway. SEE? CAN'T FIGHT... NI. HRRGGGNNN... NIIII...
Imagine you have this invisible spectre following you just over your shoulder, and right when you think you have something figured out and you're like, "Okay... I think I got this--" it whispers into your ear the most damned thing, totally throwing you for a spin, and you're like, "... SERIOUSLY? REALLY? REALLY NI? I will CUT YOU."
