i relate a lot
i definitely showed Ne first as well. i was certainly an empathetic child, but i was also curious as all get-out. i think that what was certain when i was a child was that i was NFP - P less because i was scattered and more because i was fluid and boundary-pressing, definitely Fi over Fe, definitely Ne over Ni. i hardly had any interaction with other children because of some odd circumstances, but i interacted well with adults because i read people well and was just genuinely curious about everything - and adults had knowledge. i was always the princess/heroine/fighter/healer in my imaginative play too.
i think that because i was mostly around adults as a kid, including my T dad, i developed in a "quieter", more analytical way than an average ENFP would. i think my own T processes are a little more refined than some - not to brag, though, because i definitely lacked in other areas - it took me a very long time to become socially adept with peers, for instance.
my adolescence was also marked by Fi bursting. i fought a lot with my INTP dad, and i made my mom feel bad often (see below). my parents were fairly protective and i lashed out because i felt restricted. and of course Fi was delivered via Te... i've always been quite the arguer

yeah!!Child: "Life is wondeful!"
Early teens: "Life is still wonderful, and I want to be liked!"
Middle/ Late teens: "F*ck everything!" (kick-ass phase)
Early adulthood+ : "I love life, and I want to live it fully!"
With variations depending of Fi and so on...
though right now i am in a "fuck everything" phase within early adulthood.
