    When I was a kid I hated when adults tried to "speak my language". I thought it was condescending. I would rather they be themselves, at least they would be authentic. This is why when I was little I hated the show "The Electric Company" and the "Schoolhouse Rock" shorts. To me, they were just doing an act. "Hey, young people! We are hip too!" When I was a Boy Scout leader I never tried that. I find kids respect you more for being straight with them, even if that means you're kinda square.

    I've known great ones and I've known lame ones. My husband and I interned as youth pastors and we totally sucked. We might do better now that geekiness is cooler than it used to be. Or we might not.

    My brother is currently a youth pastor and a pretty great guy. The kids in the group seem to really like him. He is kind of fascinating combination of ruthless fun and earnest uptightness. He works his tail off for the church for realz.

The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    this sounds like it could be a description of my ENFP pastor friend.
    some of the most unlikely (unruly?) types seem to have the best results with the kids.

    LOL, yeah. Tender-hearted, conscientious hellions.

    This reminds me of that cartoon Daria back in ancient times (90's) where that 35 year old police officer went undercover in a high-school and stuck out like a sore thumb. Kept trying to use youth slang and what not.
