    Well she was very open about Baby, she has an increadibly strong relationship with her sister (ENFP), I think she is an ENFJ herself. You had to say goodnight to her and to baby... she was sweet

    I was forever playing imaginary games, but they were games and there was no continuity of person involved.

    Its a shame you couldn't share yours, it's a nice part of childhood, and certainly nothing to be ashamed off.

    ...not when you had it until around the age of 14... I'm ashamed to even say it.

    Fair point, but if if you were that old then you are just talking with your inner voice, which is perfectly normal. Have you read the Northern Lights books by Philip Pulman? They all ahve daemons which are basically guaridan angel type things....

    Haven't read them but it seems like an interesting read. I'll have a look into it.

    Yes, they would be the outer projection of my inner voice. But it's still weird and not something to be proud of.

    Neither be proud or ashamed, they are just part of who you are...if it's just someone you are chatting with - the it's internal voices... If they take on a more synister form then you may want to question it.

    It's a form of thinking, maybe personifying it helps you to engage in debate rather than just goiing with one stream of consiousness.

    The Pullman books are kids books, Loved 2 out of 3 but felt some of the endings bits were a bit light given amazing characters...

    Don't be hard on yourself....

    but I need to go cout Zzzzzzzzzz's - night...

    There is an online community that goes on the notion of daemons. They're actually a logical bunch of people, as opposed to what you would expect of them. They believe their daemons to be purely mental constructs; "glorified imaginary friends".

    Um, yeah.

    In the His Dark Material trilogy, daemons were essentially your conscience, but physically manifested. I thought it was interesting and wouldn't mind an animal following me around.

    It's sweet, and it's totally normal when you're very small.
