    I exercise and exorcise them both. It's an endless cycle. It drives me crazy.
    Is not to be held accuntable for peeling errors.

    Neither.

    I drink tea with them, they're a blast of a company.

    I was reflecting on why I joined TypC the other day and that is why I started this thread.
    I originally joined 'cause I wanted to get more out of myself. I'm very laid back and easy going and I'm a terrible procrastinator.

    At the same time a big part of me would really like to do something cool.
    Something that would blow your mind.
    But that takes work. Work and commitment.

    So initially when I joined I was exorcising my demons. But now I'm used to this place and people I seem to be exercising my demons.

    Damn it feels good.
    But is it right?

    Well which one do you do? Or do you mix it up?
    Share your evilness and saintliness with me.
    Exorcise, I imagine. I'm always trying to rid myself of negative behaviors. Exercise is so exhausting and boring.

    they are a part of you - perhaps the most important
    much like the abused kid in class, you have to listen to it.
    find out what he/she/they likes and needs, and give it to them
    then it can become healthier and functional/constructive.

    Definitely mix it up. But you have to be careful when doing either one. Don't hold it in too much, or else they will all be released in an instantaneous fury. If you release them too much, that's clearly bad too.

    I think it's my natural inclination to exercise my inner demons, but I have no one to exercise them upon. So I have no choice but to exorcise them instead. And, as you know, exorcising is becoming more and more difficult.

    I feed them and let them have spare time to do whatever they like. They make good discussion partners.

    Again, Demons I get, but people are just crazy.

    ESTP? o.O

    I've tended towards exorcising them, but lately I'm trying to exercise them. Not to be evil or anything, but mostly to come to grips with those dark parts of myself that I tend to shut off. I know full well that suppressing parts of yourself is a baaaad thing in the long run, because eventually something happens and you can't keep those parts hidden and when they force themselves to the surface, it's a nightmare to handle. Much easier to let those bits out for a walk now and then...have tea with them...take them out to the movies...get to know them. It's much easier to control something by befriending it first.
