I have never been able to read the entire thing. Wish I could but never found it. Is it a full poem? Also like this one in particular...



The wold needs a new hero!


Poor Genesis, so misunderstood




What you describe is known as sleep paralysis and is very often accompanied with hypnopompic hallucinations ( basically seeing thing's in your room while in a waking from sleep state that shouldn't be there)


Interesting. Could you further explain a bit?

Sleep paralysis is a phenomenon in which people, either when falling asleep or wakening, temporarily experience an inability to move. More formally, it is a transition state between wakefulness and rest characterized by complete muscle atonia (muscle weakness). It can occur at sleep onset or upon awakening, and it is often associated with terrifying visions (e.g. an intruder in the room), to which one is unable to react due to paralysis. It is believed a result of disrupted REM sleep, which is normally characterized by complete muscle atonia that prevents individuals from acting out their dreams. Sleep paralysis has been linked to disorders such as narcolepsy, migraines, anxiety disorders, and obstructive sleep apnea; however, it can also occur in isolation


You can read the rest here Wikipedia - Sleep Paralysis

Although very little is known about it, medical science has it's theories and it is considered fairly common and normal. A lot of people who suffer from it find the medical explanation hard to swallow.That link also give's some history about it and it's relevance in folklore and culture.

You may find this next link interesting also...it has the full poem "Loveless" and some history behind it


Final Fantasy - "Loveless" enjoy

For all you ENFJs out there,

ENFj guide...



ENFjs are the self-sacrificial martyrs of the types; they love to laugh, and they love to make people happy. No other type can offer love, loyalty, and support in such a way as the ENFj. Though often surrounded by friends and supporters, they can feel lonely, living in a dark world of superficial supplications. They offer, and ask not ... leaving themselves an empty shell; they are the unreluctant givers of the types...cellent communicative abilities to relay concepts in a vivid style that can captivate those listening, molding their own style of speech to suit the perceptions and stature of others...While less mature ENFjs may use their natural gifts for wrongfully manipulative means, most generally direct good intentions towards others. ENFjs have excellent people skills, and make great councilors and conflict avoidance specialist. They can intuitively gauge the strengths and flaws of others and use their intuitive insight to see forthcoming danger, and how to appropriately act to in response. However, they may be easily hurt and blame themselves when ideas and relationship do not go on as planned; they can be sensitive to criticism and may react unfavorably towards labels or unsolicited advice...ENFjs like 'win-win' solutions and tend to seek out the company of others who display any various forms of assertive positivity; however, many have problems adapting to new situations as they stand, and may lack an ability to appropriately adapt to new or changing social environments. Because of this, they seek stable friendships; they make loyal companions and maintain life long relationships with those they trust...ENFjs make exceptionally good orators, and can explain concepts well. They make great debaters, and can convince others of their ideas. They make great leaders, though others tend to unwittingly follow. They make great teachers and care providers; because of their physique, they can possess an affinity for scarves, hats, and trinkets.


That is a strangely accurate description of my character for the most part...Curious to find out what other ENFJs think. I even like scarves and hats lol

Ok, took the test before, not the same this time, now thinker.

Taurus

32 years as a teacher with a master degree.

Yes, a lucid dreamer,

Many psychic experiences which are ongoing, but are connected to dimensional input.

Paranormal is mixed into the psychic level, very complex and yet to be understood.

I exclude religion as it is too confining.

Not new, I just keep creating.

Born in the us.

I read but did not participate in your previous thread. However, I will say that we do not have to burden this feeling of apprehension for much longer. It will be sooner rather than later & once it starts, all the dominoes will begin to fall in rapid succession.

I read through the other thread and normally wouldn't have posted this much personal info (this is a conspiracy site, you know) but I completely related to the feeling of waiting. (Blame the 2 glasses of wine for my verbosity
)
While I could understand those who said it was some sort of brokenness inside of us that wants more than we have, not satisfied with what we have, expects the world to provide us with a distraction, I also know that this sentiment is in no way the entirety of what I feel. I have felt the sensation increasing in the past few months. Possibly it was influenced by the emphatic connection to everyone's sense of 2012. Yet, that should have been over in January. It's not. The sensation continues to build. All I know, is that if the world does not change, I must. I can't continue this way any longer. I do what I can to numb myself from this feeling, because if I cause an upheaval, I will hurt those I love the most. And really, they matter more than me. But at some point, I can no longer stick my fingers in my ears and go "Lalalalalalala, I can't hear you." I will have to make a move.
Anyway, Here are my pertinents:

1. Personality Type - INFJ - (Introverted iNtuiting Feeling Judging) although to be honest I was a dead 50% on Feeling vs Thinking

2. Astrological sign- Sagittarius

3. O- (baby's blood CMV negative)

4. Bachelor's with additional work

5. Are you a lucid dreamer? at times

6. Any psychic experiences? hmm, yep

7. Any paranormal experiences? a few

8. Religious affiliation/ spiritual beliefs? raised Southern Baptist (yep, fire and brimstone) but infinity is the centrality of my belief system

9. Have you started any recent hobbies? back to a few- piano, writing, languages

10. Birth Country and Current Country of Residence- USA

Here is a list of questions I think would be interesting if we each would answer. If you can think of other questions to ask, feel free to add it to the bunch. We’re just gathering data, looking for correlations, while understanding that correlation does not imply causality.

So, to the questions.

1. Meyer's Briggs Personality Type- ENFJ

2. Astrological sign- Aquarius

3. Blood type- AB+(crazy story, my moms blood type changed when she had me. I'm the only one in my entire family with AB+ now. And no I am not adopted. )

4. Highest level of Education-Junior in high school currently.

5. Are you a lucid dreamer? No

6. Any psychic experiences? Not too much. On rare occasions yes.

7. Any paranormal experiences? Same as above

8. Religious affiliation/ spiritual beliefs? Deist

9. Have you started any recent hobbies? No

For everything there is a first time...

I have been called many things, this is first time I have been called Abe.

Now I can't decide on being the sausage king or growing a neck beard and wearing a stove pipe hat.

I suppose I should thank you and hope it don't go to me head.
oh, Don't tell anyone but the original thread by smyleegrl has made me strangely and positively happy...

Hoping someone accumulate all the result from this thread and average it out according to the test.


Just did a count as of page 4 on the MBTI--edit*: everything above my post to simplify. I had noted on the the other thread that there was a lot of IN types chiming in. I didn't count one because she? hadn't read the companion thread and didn't double check because I'm a weird kind of lazy sometimes. These numbers are interesting. Here's the numbers first:

INTJ.... 11 1-4% incidence in the population
INFJ ....10 1-3% " "
INFP.... 10 4-5%
ENFJ... 2 2-5%
INTP......2 1-5%
ISTJ..... 3 10-14%
ISFP ....1 5-10%
ENTP ...1 2-5%
ESTJ.....1 8-12%
ENFP....1 2-8%

Now excuse me while I stat geek out ya'll because this is interesting.
In our sample, we have a population of 43. Taking the minimum and maximum incidences of the top three personality types is the fascinating part. Based on the incidences and the population, we would expect to find that INFJ and INTJ would each have a minimum population at
