    i discovered that i was " different " from telling people what i saw and thought vs their reaction
    i would come up with different perspectives, as well as their perspective, but much sooner than they did

    as for who i am
    i am too powerful and too kind and too loving to be anything else but that

    Like, you know, it went like this:

    1 - Automatic

    2- Proactive

    3, 4 - Reactive

    5 - Distracting

    6, 7 - Destructive

    8 - Just Plain Baffling
    Hmmm.. Yes.
    Why do you choose a specific function?
    Because you are good at it?
    You are good at it because you choose it.
    A choice is an automatic response to environment.

    There are two identical twins.
    They are different.
    Why they are different?
    Because they choose to be different.
    Why do they choose to be different?
    Because they are faced with different challenge.
    Why they are faced with different challenge?

    What creates the challenge?
    The environment.
    Who I am?
    I am an automatic response to environment.
    Do I then choose?
    I am chosen.

    Does the choice precede I?
    It is I.

    Differentiation of perspective is the basis of understanding.

    You can only give what you do not have.

    There is acceptance and understanding.
    There is rejection and understanding.
    There is acceptance without understanding.
    There is rejection without understanding.

    Two kinds of empathy.
    Two kinds of lack of empathy.
