    Don't change! I love people like that! They say all the stuff I wish I would say but I get all timid too much of the time.

    Yeah. I wish I could be more like that. I get too unsure a lot though. The problem with this is that you never *know* how the person would've reacted then. And perhaps it would've been bad or good...

    Heh If you want to see the problems I have with this, just take a look at my last blog entry, although that is a relatively extreme example.

    Seriously, though, I have a problem with speaking before I think. And writing before I think. And sometimes even acting before I think. Except, of course, when I *have* to speak, write, or act quickly. Then I blank out, of course. :-P
    If you are interested in language, words, linguistics, or foreign languages, check out my blog and read, post, and/or share.

    There is nothing wrong with that at all. Funny think is even as a severe introvert, I do the same thing too. Just at a MUCH slower pace.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    That's the real Achilles heel of Ne I think. That you just can't live with yourself for not finding something out when you had the opportunity, so... *cringe*

    Heh, I've had plenty of problem with this, although I try to control it somewhat. When I am self monitoring I can usually keep my thoughts to myself. If I am excited or tired or taken off guard, then I just let the words fly without thinking of the consequences.

    Uhh, I've been one of the worst examples of apparent talk-first-then-think ideology. That's never been the case tho; I've seen I'm free to talk in some boundaries, and then I let myself loose.

    Forums are hard for me and probably other EP's. Reading back on my posts, I notice that I start on topic and then just talk about whatever is on my mind. It makes me wonder if the things I say in person are ridiculous also..!

    then you get the troublemaker branding when it was just healthy curiosity.

    Like many of you guys know, i'm pretty good at writing weird stuff that I don't think through before it's out I wouldn't restrict it to ExxP's only I'd like to believe that i'm not just a complete idiot
    Perhaps it's not because of lack of intelligence, it might be that I do it on purpose on a subconscious level, just to be funny?

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come
