    When I was young:
    • Spent as much time alone as possible (because when I was alone I was free to do what I wanted, and also did not have to deal with people's emotions and risk offending them somehow).
    • If needing to be social, spent time with single individuals than with groups.
    • Loved to read (the entire kids' section, then onto the grown-up section of the public library, bags and bags of books each week on any topic).
    • Quick to read, quick to learn, quick to understand. I would do all my homework in class as the teacher was explaining the assignment, rarely studied for tests (unless it involved memorization), got all A's without trying.
    • Started writing my first book in ninth grade.
    • Understood systems very well, excellent with cause and effect and predicting probable outcome of a given action (or conversation).
    • Liked to observe the world, people included, and figure out what made them tick and how they fit together.
    • Didn't like personal conflict at all, avoided it whenever possible unless I couldn't avoid it; then I played to win, but hate-hate-hated it.
    • Intellectually arrogant, felt that my mind could solve all my problems, constantly was deciding whether other people were "smart or stupid," so I could decide if I needed to trust them.
    • Didn't quite fit in. Felt like an alien, with thoughts and feelings and imaginations most kids my age did not share.
    • Loved to do wordplay, put spin on things, ironic humor, twists -- sense of humor bounced around like a superball in an underground bunker. Also, no limitations -- even venture into taboo territory (if the joke went there) unless I was around someone who would disapprove.
    • Loved nature and the outdoors. Spent much of my time climbing trees alone and exploring the fields and roads in my county, on my bike.
    • Loved games of all sort, the more cerebral the better. (The more "luck" involved, the more I despised them.)
    • Loved RPGs -- they involved imagination, creativity, and comprehensive system knowledge. But I would never actually play. Instead, I would spend most of the time alone, learning and understand the system mechanics and then creating scenarios and characters that made sense.
    • Topics of interest when younger: Science, science fiction/fantasy, psychic phenomena, weird things, then branched into spirituality, psychology, and philosophy; then into culture and history.
    • Played music, moved into improvisation and composition very early. Excellent sight reader, excellent at play-by-ear. Could see "big picture" of the music as it unfolded and respond to the cues and build off them.
    • Terrified of conversation on a personal level, without a topic to guide me. Once (fourth grade) was taken to camp to spend the week and cried so much I came back home, because I felt so insecure.
    • Made a distinction early on between how I felt about someone and how I needed to treat them; could see why people might do bad things without meaning to be bad (mostly my parents).
    • remember my mom staying in my room with me for an hour when I was six or so, because i was sobbing so hard. I couldn't articulate to her what I was afraid of, because it was so big and she would not understand, NOR could she fix things (so what would be the point?): I wasn't afraid of death, I was afraid of eternity because i could not understand it. I would have rather died than live forever and not be able to get my mind around it.

    They make a sort of buzzing noise, not unpleasant if you're used to it. Hundreds of them at once can aurally dominate a yard.

    I had a similar crisis when I was six, and again at seven. Horrifying. It made me want to curl into a little ball and scream and scream and scream.

    Thanks, Oberon--I was hoping someone would post a picture for me. They're quite loud here in the Alabama woods during summer.

    I was an overly critical, neurotic, self-righteous kid with an overactive imagination.

    Now I'm overly critical, neurotic, but not nearly as self righteous. I'm also working on accepting myself and others. I decided to keep the overactive imagination since it's so damn fun.

    I was very much extrovert as a child and always smiling (at least that is what my dad says). I had great imagination and was very much Ne. I was very fond of sports, drawing, reading (fantasy, fiction, and detective stories) and drama. I had many friends and loved people. I loved all kinds of group activities, games, parties and family gatherings. I also loved (and still love) all furry animals.

    I was sensitive and very F. I cried easily and felt empathy (or sympathy or something like that) for people very easily. I was not allowed to see any “bad” adult movies as a child but after seeing one at my friends place I had nightmares for 6 months after that. Even these days I do not like to watch horror movies because I tend to get too involved.

    I was quite restless child and had poor concentration skills. I got tired of people quickly and wanted to be the one who says what to do. School was quite easy for me and I did not use too much time in doing my homework or studying to exams. The biggest problem in school was my restlessness and poor concentration skills.

    My dream occupations were a elementary school teacher or a journalist when as a child. I was interested in biology, geography and psychology later in school. I loved writing poems and stories until my imaginary writings were “banned” in school. I was not really interested in math (too much work to be done there even if I was ok in math), physics or chemistry. I was also quite good in computer programming.

    I think I was pretty much ENFP always. I was always aware that I should improve my P (I was such a messy child) and I should try not to be as sensitive and F (I wanted to be tough). Being E has always been my strongest visible side..

    ugh -- thanks for reminding me in great detail.

    lol *HUG*

    I know, it was horrible, wasn't it? I don't even know if I really have gotten past it, either -- I just block it out and don't think about it, because I can't do anything about it. It just is what it is.

    what I remember
    -watched are you afraid of the dark and had nightmares from it, yet loved the show
    -if my brother barely touched me I would imagine it to be a hundred times worse and more painful (I was convinced that it hurt, even though it probably didn't) I would burst in to tears
    -a family friend told me years later I would put aside money to give to charity when I was in like 1st grade.
    -I dreamt of changing the world, making it better. I was more of an idealists than then I am now. I wonder what happened
    -I loved going to bars (I didn't drink) but my dad would take me to them and I'd get a burger and coke
    -I didn't eat alot, but their wasn't a food I didn't like (except grits eewww and milk)
    -I loved going to church (hate it now)
    -I didn't have many friends but I always and one or two close ones
    -I got in trouble for not speaking up in school
    -I use to swing all recess with the goal of touching a tree branch, that now looking back I would have never reached it
    -I always pretended to be in far a way places
    -loved riding my bike through puddles
    -I was convinced my wallpaper had it in for (I thought it was going to eat me)
    -Thought the grim reaper disguised as a country singer hid in my dad's office, and I would run past it.
    -I thought their was monster under my bed for the longest time and did a running jump to get into bed and leapt out of bed.
    -I never slept, and was always tired.
    -I hated school, I remember being 1st or 2nd grade and asking my mom why I had to got school. And she said because it's the law, I didn't like that answer.
    -When I got mad I would ride my bike around the neighborhood, I got in trouble a few times because I would be gone for a really long time, sometimes I wouldn't say I was leaving.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so
