    Quite telling, dontcha think
    or that the site is largely skewed N type - which is it.. or that some of the sensors don't check this part of the site, or that N types are open to responding well. Lots of possibilities, but it certianly looks like N types aare fairly open to imaginary freinds.

    Sigh. I never had an imaginary friend...
    ... because I knew imaginary friends weren't real.

    It would have been nice, during all the "lonely years" growing up, though ... fudge.

    No, never.

    I don't think I ever had an imaginary friend.

Like I said, it's still there but feels farther away and I'm guessing that would be my doing. i.e. guilt about the crisis and so forth. As long as you're making so much noise either in the heart or the head; it's hard to hear.

    This probably makes no sense but it's very hard to explain; even to myself.

    That sounds very normal pretend/imaginary play to me, although very F types... the harlequin doll sounds amusing... SCARY!!!

    no imaginary friends- I had a sister (a REAL enemy during childhood! )

    I did like to imagine that I could grow up and be a pirate though

    My main imaginary friend was Huntry, who was only a couple of inches high. She had an older (responsible) sister named Candle who slept in my older sister's ear, and she also hung out with T Shirt and Jackie (both boys). I named my doll after my imaginary friend when I was about four.

    My aunt also told tales of Elfie, an elf with a bad smoking/swearing habit who alternately lived under our ships bell or else shipped off to my aunt's. He thought my mum was a kill joy, but got sick of my aunt pinching his wings. He was always urging me to take up smoking and offering to teach me how to blow smoke rings. When he was at my aunt's house, he and a couple of other elves (Piper and Whistler) hung out in the chimney and were put to work by the Toothfairy making tooth pillows. I used to regularly get tiny letters in the mail from him and occasionally from Toothy, whom I corresponded with. Around the time that I started to doubt Elfie's existence, I put out a plate of flour with some food in the middle of it. When I woke up in the morning, there were tiny tracks there, and I was quite impressed, as I had had the distinct impression that Elfie and my aunt were the same person.

    I never had an imaginary friend. I didn't really think of having one, nor did I want one, guess it was laziness too.

    Yep, one who looked like me only she had darker hair and was more of an E. As I grew out of it, my child psychologist told me it was my desired version of myself, lol
