This is probably pretty common for us 40 something, intelligent, introverts.
Some things are tangible.......A theocracy with a nuke, over population, increasing improvements in AI, abuse of other,new techs..
These things are different challenges then any other ancestor had to deal with. These things are unavoidable, thus the feeling of "something is going to happen"......yes, something is, it has to, and it can't be avoided...but when? and to what effect? Nobody can tell you that.
So there is a real reason why you might feel like the world is holding its breath, or that the vibe in the air is something like knowing a huge storm or tornado is about to hit. Birds and bugs get quite, breeze stops and you notice that the trees are quite, your ears start to ring because they are struggling to hear more than the seemingly sudden silence, you feel it. That is what most of us are feeling now in a way. When we are in public we feel like we are observing more than participating in society. Something is just not right, just off, it just feels like something is about to happen.

INTP: The Architect
INTPs are philosophical innovators, fascinated by logical analysis, systems, and design. They are preoccupied with theory, and search for the universal law behind everything they see. They want to understand the workings of the universe, in all their complexity.
INTPs are detached, analytical observers who can seem oblivious to the world around them because they are so deeply absorbed in thought. They spend much of their time focused internally: exploring concepts, making connections, and seeking understanding. To the Architect, life is an ongoing inquiry into the mysteries of the world around them.
The INTP is typically non-traditional, and more likely to reason out their own unconventional way of doing things than to follow the crowd. INTPs are merciless about analyzing ideas and beliefs, and hold little sacred. They are often baffled by other people who remain loyal to beliefs that don't make logical sense.
INTPs present a cool exterior but are passionate about reason, analysis, and innovation. They seek to create complex systems of understanding to unify the principles they've observed in their environments. Their minds are complicated and active, and they will go to great mental lengths trying to devise ingenious solutions to interesting problems.

Can I ask you if you have ever had a bad accident? Or had anything inside you, like a cancer or tumur? Or any other kind of defect which could have killed you?
If you answer 'NO' to all the above questions, you could be like myself.
