Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
Wow! This is really interesting. I scored 21. I'm an introvert - an INFJ to be precise, which makes me a prime-candidate to be highly sensitive. More about my Meyers-Briggs type here. Does anyone else know their MB type? And do they know how much this plays into MD?
I think this is helpful to me in some ways, though. I am very in-tune to the feelings of those around me (I kind of suck them up like a sponge). Right now I'm studying to be a hospital chaplain. I think that my sensitivity to others, while it makes my life difficult at times, will be an asset in that field.

Emilia, take this test, please.

I do this a lot too. I can recall events where I was embarrassed and other bad situations and replay them. I always think if I had done something different, it might not have happened. I can feel what I felt then, now. I try to not do this as much as I can and when I do I think "How is this helping you? You can't change it, just learn to let it go. Everyone makes mistakes and is embarrassed. Just try to think more in the future". It helps me sometimes... I have this little inner dialogue lol. And the thing is, most don't remember it just yourself. But I do get very sensitive and in some ways I'm more sensitive in certain situations than when I was younger. When my mom gets angry at me and we have an argument, I cry. Its like I'm so angry I cry and I HATE that, it makes me feel weak. But I didn't do that at all when I was younger so I wonder if it has to do with hormones?? But I feel for others and hate when others are yelled or berated (unless they deserve it in my mind).
I consider myself to be highly sensitive. I overthink what others say to me and rewind it in my mind.
I probably letbit have too much affect onmyself sometimes when they probably meant nothing
Towards me in a negative way.
