    In elementary and middle school I felt like a total weirdo.
    In high school I felt quite weird.
    Then in college I felt only a little weird.
    In grad school i felt totally normal and rational and not at all weird.

    Then I got a job. THEY WERE ALL STILL HERE. THOSE PEOPLE FROM MIDDLE SCHOOL. I was weird all over again. God damn it. It seems they just didnt want to grow up to be biophysicists, thus stopped showing up in my classes sometime in high school.

    On the plus side my definition of normal seems to be an NTP. This could explain a lot.

    I don't know who or what originally made this poster (I find a lot of synapse's posters hanging around without credit given - of course, his posters are usually made from google images with no credit given so I guess it evens out) but here you go - I think this sums it up well:

    Same here . I only feel weird because of how people react to me and because I've noted that I tend to think/feel differently from what other people around me express.

    In the "ask an ESTJ" thread, I actually asked if she if ever feels weird or wonders if she is normal, and she said it rarely crosses her mind (or something along those lines). It seemed like it was a fleeting worry that was quickly dismissed. And it came in the form of a random worry, not any real consideration based on experience.

    For me, I've spent time pondering this because I am trying to figure out why people respond to me in certain ways. I've realized they think I am odd. Then I wonder what is "normal" and I observe "normal" people & think they are ridiculous. I've definitely had a sense of alienation my whole life...

    I think NPs have 'weirdo' thrust upon them. The introverts feel kooky/damaged/'different' and the extraverts just act kooky/damaged/different. LOL.

    I really like your post though, I think it's very true.

    I think that people are more normal than they think and more abnormal than they are aware. It just depends on what you focus on.

    Some people look very normal but feel very different. Some people look really different but feel perfectly in step with society and normal.

    Yes, I know, this is turning into one of 'those' posts. :P

    It's important to celebrate our uniqueness but also see the ways we're connected.

    I'm going to start my drum circle now.

    Dooooood, that's not normal.

    I think I've discovered the root of your problems, lol.

    I think ENXJs should get special consideration here. The ENXPs are weirdos...but at least they typically live with it and people know it.

    The ENXJs on the other hand are usually better at trying to fake it. Thus we spend more of our lives feeling like either: "I hate having to constantly try to be normal!" or "If I were to ever just be as weird as I think, people would flip out".

    Don't know about the rest of you, but as a teacher I have plenty of experience with young people and I can tell you that every single one of them was a weird little snowflake in some regard.
