    I don't know if it applies to other EPs, but I certainly feel your pain, my ENFP Sista.
    Wonka, I shall never forget the first time we "met" on Vent.

    You're special!!!



    And, um...

    *looks right*

    I really, really, really, really, really want to be a mother.

    To raise a beautiful creature, to nurture him or her, watch him/her grow, and bask in the wonder of his/her life.

    There is a struggle between wanting to give myself to people I love, and wanting to maintain an independent self, nameen!?!?

    It's hard to maintain an intrinsic confidence when you have external factors that "tell" you you are not good enough.

    :sad:

    oh silly girl...i know exactly how ya feel and i think it's important to just not compare ourself to others as much or try to live up to some implied standard. we were never meant to all be alike or have the same gifts...and i agree that passionate people should search for their passion...once you find it and make it work for you it'll all make sense.

    my advice would be to try to explore any careers of interest by working or volunteering within the field so that you might be able to narrow your options down a bit....perhaps discover that one of your "maybe" ideas is the perfect fit.

    good luck to ya babe.

    I think I need to stop trying to find it, and just let it come, make sense?!!?

    It's in there, inside of me.

    And, somehow, someway, through some catalyst it will come out and blossom, methinks... mehopes...

    Or maybe I do need to pursue it.

    Who knew following your heart could be so damn difficult!!!!

    What am I *really* passionate about, need to rethink this.

    People.

    I'm passionate about people.

    And, love.

    And, connecting.

    And I want to help others fulfill their potential, ironically. :/
    Have you ever considered medicine? I've had some health issues over the past few years and I've been struck by how many doctors are arrogant, dismissive fucktards---and by how invaluable are the few who actually listen, are compassionate, empathetic, open, play the role of patient-advocate rather than authoritarian autocrat, etc.

    I suspect ENFPs are underrepresented in the non-psych disciplines, and while I wouldn't necessarily choose an ENFP over an ISTP when it comes to orthopedic surgery, there are many other disciplines in which they'd be a breath of fresh air...

    I was a bio major for two years.

    My father was a radiologist, he wanted me to be an OB/GYN fertility specialist.

    I can't disect animals.

    And the mere thought of vivisecting one terrifies me.

    So, no.

    I enjoy anatomy, and biology, but I especially enjoy evolutionary psychology and ethology!!!

    I went to massage therapy school for over a year, six or seven years back.

    I never finished my practical, though I acquired 250+ hours.

    Being a dance teacher appeals to me, and always has, for some reason.

    Aside from reading, thinking and philosophizing as a teenager, dance has truly saved my life.



    I taught dance for Special Olympics for a summer in high school, that was a fantastic experience.

    And, choreography...

    Oh, how I love

    Interestingly enough, I constantly think about revisiting my high school to get back in touch with my dance teacher, Ms. Lavin.

    Bonnie, who never shaved her legs or armpits.

    She was a unique ISFP, a truly lovely creature.

    We collaborated well.

    I think about her often.

    I just got my alumni magazine, and she is still teaching at my school.

    I'm scared to go back, though, for some reason.

    Too many memories.

    High school was... a difficult time for me.

    Perhaps that should be a baby step goal for me, enroll in dance classes and go say hello to Bonnie, perhaps I can even potentially guest choreograph a piece for the dance company.

    I'm officially tired and feel somewhat embarrassed for creating this thread.

    Don't know why.

    For an extrovert, I have a tendency to be really about personal shit that matters deeply to me.

    I feel exposed.

    Nekkid, and not in the good way.
