    Like Fe people you mean? I figure it's because they actually really attach to people so easily/quickly, they actually really can care about someone and want to see them and miss them and stuff even if they've only known them like a month. Always seems odd to me when I get people like that attaching to me because I just find I'm at a loss as to explain how on earth or why on earth this person keeps asking my opinions on this or that or why they call me to go on a trip with them or something, rather than any of their many other friends that they've known for much longer. I also find it difficult to determine whether/when it's "my place" to start doing stuff like helping, offering help or initiating discussions about personal areas of their life, like at what point do I cease to be the noob in their life and become somebody who's officially a close enough friend to do these things without seeming to be acting out of place or coming on too strong?

    I get people doing those things with me sometimes, WAY before I consider them even a friend, let alone a close one... in fact sometimes I barely consider them an acquaintance before they're calling me their best friend... very odd...
    (then again I do have attachment issues, i even question sometimes whether I'm actually even attached to my own family )

    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    I can't even tell what's going on there, but I don't think it's my kind of scene.

    Idealism is very claustrophobic when you don't have skills.
    This is an extraordinary position to be in.

    Just to maintain yourself, just to keep your eyes open, requires an enormous inner strength.

    And yet you see quite clearly - your vision is not clouded.

    You rest, though, in a very old tradition. That is all around you but remains unseen.

    And it is a tradition that welcomes you with delight. Because this tradition can breathe in you.

    With every breath you take, you bring the tradition alive; yet you won't tickle it under the ears or take it for a walk. It must trail after you - unacknowledged - eyes downcast - hoping you will give a sign of recognition.

    It is almost as though the whole world is holding its breath waiting for you to breathe.

    While you, in your ineffable politeness, are waiting for the world to breathe first.

    I've had people (when I was younger) take me to parties, reunions, etc. with the idea that "You'll have a good time". So much of what is perceived as "the social norm" of the masses is skewed through the eyes of a mass of individuals.

    "I'll have a good time...? According to who???"

    I often wonder about "social norms" and whether they were created by a bunch of people who were simply not happy with themselves unless they were propped up with compliments about how well they "fit in". The more people try to "bring someone out of their shell" (no matter what the shell is) the more those same people seem to need someone else who is just like them.

    I think that if anyone asks me to "come out of my shell" again, I'll say yes, but only if they go inside of it themselves and stay there...

    Is it considered being in a shell if one speaks, but nobody listens?
