    How are you an ENFP??
    That sounds like me, and I thought that was why I'm an introvert, because it's an effort to go out and party. I like it when I'm there but I need to prep myself mentally and most nights staying in with myself is more appealing.

    Costrin is an "outcast", but only by his own will, ie, not really caring enough to integrate with the majority of society.

    There is so much to say here, yet words can be a futile way to communicate an inner knowing. You are young. Your life is a journey. You will learn along the way. And everyone feels alone sometimes. Everyone IS alone inside their own skin, their own mind, their experience of reality - this is not the exclusive domain of any one type or temperament. And it's OK.

    There's probably very little you could think that hasn't already been thought, or any feeling you could feel that hasn't been felt by someone else before you. Because we share that sameness, we are not really isolated. We are connected. Reach out to others, and dare to be real - you might discover you are not so very different from EVERYONE. It's just a matter of percentages.

    Finding connections is special and not to be taken lightly - but who is ever truly and completely understood? You must learn not to validate yourself through other people's ability to understand YOU, but yours to understand them.

    You'll meet lots.

    Well, that's good news.

    For those of you who said you were outcasts, I want to know - why do/did you not associate with others much? I'm just curious.

    I don't claim to be an outcast, but I don't associate with others much, so I will answer your question. It's mostly because I don't have the social abilities to form meaningful connections with other people.

    Well, I wouldn't call myself an outcast, but I'll answer this question also. I suppose I don't associate with others because I don't really enjoy it. I don't like going up to people to talk to them or coming up with ideas of things to say. I guess I prefer to talk in large groups so I don't have to say much (as long as I'm included in the group). It just makes me uncomfortable being around people. It's kind of complicated with me because I desire companionship, but I also dislike it. I don't know, maybe I have some kind of social phobia.

    The Chosen One, I will answer as well, though I also don't really consider myself to be an outcast. I tend to be very service oriented, to the extent that most of the time I spend with others is focused almost entirely on them. I find this very tiring, after a while, but I am prone to neglecting myself, and I often won't seek out a way to re-energize, which makes everything worse.
    Also, I've reached a point in my life where typical social outings are no longer convenient, or even interesting. One on one is fine, but more is overwhelming in one sense, while underwhelming in another. I'm also a mom, so time alone is a very rare and cherished commodity. I hope I explained that clearly.
