Set to autopilot

thoughts1People with natural tendency to exploration and to creative daydreaming cannot stop all the time and think how to do every day stuff.

In many cases you hear people talk about routine and how boring or bad it is or how it's killing the enthusiasm.
Sensitive people feel really trapped if they have to be in a routine, especially doing or living things that they don't like, or they are not interested to.

Most of the times though, Sensitive people create their own routines. It seems strange that people born explorers, adventurers, artists and inventors, people with strange and unique ideas have to create routines and sometimes be furious if someone breaks them.

The explanation is simple.
People with natural tendency to exploration and to creative daydreaming cannot stop all the time and think how to do every day stuff.

For example, if you are a Sensitive person and you are driving, there is no chance that you will start thinking what movements to do in order for the car to move. All these movements, about the pedals, the wheel, the gears, are set to auto pilot. You only take care of the direction and the signs, and this only if you don't know the area.
Of course, it will take some time until this autopilot is fully functional and in the beginning, when you are a new driver, you will have to think and program every movement, but this only for a short time.

So most of every day life is something that a Sensitive person doesn't take care of. It is just happening and in many cases you cannot even remember when did it happen.

Another thing is putting order to the personal world, you know, desk, drawers, tool cases etc. Sensitive people don't need this order because every position of every thing is stored in a map in the mind, so if you go and make order without them you just confuse them more.

The reason for putting the “boring” parts of life to auto pilot is because there are more important things to take care of.
Intuition, inspiration, creative ideas, business or personal growth, sometimes writing, inventing, directing, running the country or the world, all these things are happening while the body is just automatically functioning. And all these things sometimes can change the world and make it more interesting, millions of examples in the past.

So if people ask you why don't you pay attention and sometimes you seem to be lost in space, just explain to them that for a Sensitive person enjoying the way and imagining the destination is more important than thinking what button to press next.
