    I am a warm caring soul that likes to bring peace and love to this world. I believe everyone should get along with each other and love each other to death.

    haha, can you actually be productive though if you put your mind to it?

He's bad at making friends anyway and I know how bad it feels when you don't have anyone to socialize with. It's aweful!
    Thats strange id ask you why but you told me not to. Strange indeed

    Can you stay focused on something for a long period of time or do you constantly find yourself changing focus when you didn't mean to? I used to have ADHD bad when i was a kid but that's just because they put me on Amphetamine salts to try to keep me focused. Just made me act like a kid on speed. At least the kids at the school loved me i would constantly keep them entertained. Now though it went away but i rarely see it again if my well-being is bad.

I barely passed each year, always minimizing what I need to do and learn in order to pass and have as much free time to do other stuff. Never made homework at home, always did that stuff in classes, not paying attention very well to teachers in general. I was still quite liked and even famous in school. I never cared how people felt about me and I got in some awkward situations, inadvertedly spreading rumours about me, especially when I was 16/17 years old. Everyone knew me, but I hardly knew anyone else apart from people in my own classes. I never saw my reputation as negative.

    At graduation day I got a standing ovation, because my friends went through the roof when my name was called and everyone just caught on, lol. *happytear*

    So basicly, I was ENTP'ish in high school. Although I think I've always had an introverted nature. I was just very energetic.

    So I had the best of times in school.

    Then had some pretty sad things happen in my life which made me quite a bit more introverted. Or at least got me much more interested in a whole lot of other things. Whereas I basicly didn't care much about most stuff in high school.
    Sounds like a good time growing up. How did the sad experience change your interests and make you introverted?

    I know what you mean its good to peer into another persons world and relate to them. Humans really don't do that much i think healthy communication is heavily lacking in today's society with a lot of people.

    I spent most of my life thinking and not doing. I thought that thinking and understand everything was most important as well as enough to have lived the "good life." And if you think about everything first, you never have to take a risk of making a mistake or looking foolish or hurting someone else or losing the resources you've hoarded over the years. But my life was not very good and I always felt very alone and isolated... which seems typical for those who constantly stand back and observe others rather than engaging them. I might understand a lot of human behavior, but I did not feel like much of a person myself until I let go of the detachment and stepped into the daily ebb and flow of human society and entered relationship.

    I have been an extraordinarily shy person at many times in my life. When I was four, I remember feeling immense anxiety and hiding behind the dryer in the back room one night when company came to visit. In fourth grade, my parents went to drop me off at summer camp and I cried for an hour (fighting it and failing miserably) until they took me home again. Even as a young adult, I would drive to events where I didn't know anyone, then cry in the parking lot and leave without ever going inside. I think it just came from not intuitively knowing how things would go, and feeling inadequate over my skills at "performing adequately" enough to be accepted. As I shifted away from feeling like my social skills were part of a performance, I've found it easier and easier to be out there as myself without running.
    wow quite a experience. Thats some pretty bad social anxiety. Remember never be afraid of making a mistake or being looked down on. To beat your social anxiety your just going to have to dive in a conversation and not care. Once you realize there really isnt anything to be afraid about you should do well. I also recommend you get this book I own it and read it when my conversational skills start getting a little rusty. Amazon.com: Conversationally Speaking : Tested New Ways to Increase Your Personal and Social Effectiveness (0746623014009): Alan Garner: Books It will also teach you how to keep relationships very healthy by correcting the problems of communication between you. Sounds like you need a hug too

I felt that if I did not look out for them, no one would, so it was my job to look after them. My grandmother used to tell me I was very brave for burying my cats and would send me money. The money was nice, but I didn't understand why she would do that, nor did it change what I thought about my responsibilitieis. I have not had a cat since I have had children. It is not much different -- herding children is like herding cats -- although I must say that children are messier overall and tend to say embarrassing things about you in mixed company, while cats are less prone (not by much, but still less) to try to bug you from outside the bathroom door when you want just one minute of space to yourself.
    haha you got to love children. what kind of embarrassing things do they say?

The impression my therapist had of me when she very first met me was that I was very smart... yet very kind and very "safe" to be oneself around. People generally like me -- I'm quietly friendly, sometimes goofy, wanting to be helpful, low-key and laid back, very adaptable and flexible. Ironically, while I like things to be done in ways that make sense, I do not actually like to be in charge or tell people what to do; I'd much rather give them advice, then have them make good choices. Having to make decisions for others irks me. When I'm with friends or in groups of people I know on some level, I often can get loud and silly and seem far more social than I am (and all that without booze!); any warmth I put off seems natural but quickly drains my batteries and I will suddenly crash... you can almost watch it happen, as easily as a switch is flicked off, and then I have to disappear to recharge.
    Thats good you improved on your social skills. yeah social situations can really drain out introverts just because it requires so much energy from them to act well socially. The more you do it the easier it is to stay fully charged and also have other people bring you energy.

Most are sale books from Borders and Waldens, on topics I didn't know much about but thought would be interesting to understand. I could prop up all the furniture in my house with books, in fact build an entire house out of books, if I needed to do so. I am surprised that standard floors can hold the weight of the books that they do.
    I have a lot of books too that i got for the same reason. I have about 70 of them and barely read any. If i had a lot of extra money to spare though i would probably buy more though lol!

    I grew up in the suburbs of Antwerp, Belgium, a proud city in a tiny country, in Europe. My father(ENTP) and my mother(ISFJ) had two other children before me: my NTP brothers, 7 and 9 years older than me.

    I have a Masters in Translation, spent a year in Russia, and am currently studying Animal Behavorism and Herbology.

    I've been called weird more times than I can remember, as well as overwhelming, kind, crazy, charming, arrogant, alien, not of this world, mesmerizing, evil, cruel, etc. When my current employer asked me to describe myself, I answered: a barrel of paradoxes. And the tests he had me take, said the same thing..

    I gain inspiration from my heritage and ancient cultures, from mythology, folklore, fairytales and goddesses. This is my world, one I loathe to leave. Reality, unfortunately, will never stop knocking at my door.

    I try to see the beauty in life, the kindness in people, that magical glow passion bestows on people wherever I can, and am always longing to know more. My quest in life is to understand how the universe works, and is connected to every living soul.

    As for myself, I am fire and water all in one, and I desperately seek a way to channel this in a beneficial way. I'm everchanging, never there, always straddling two worlds at once. And I aspire to embody the synthesis of all these things one day.

    I could go on forever...but let's not

    **sigh*
    Damn ENFPs and their need to know.

    Ok, so I was raised as an only child in deep South by a single mother(until I was in my teens). I think I was born an idealist, and a super empathist to boot. I remember experiencing the pain of others my age starting around the age of 4. I would recall feeling deeply moved and hurt when others in my preschool got reprimanded or punished for certain offenses. I've always related most to those who have had intensely emotional life experiences, are able to articulate them, and seek to overcome them.

    I'm fairly used to standing alone on many issues, and having to regularly defend myself and my ideas(from a very early age) has had the effect of making me appear stoical at times. I'm pretty emotionally guarded sometimes. Occasionally I'm a complete softy, and I wish I didn't feel things. I've got thinking type envy. I liked my list!!:steam: I fear rejection, but I still say whatever's on my mind. I think I've lived most of my life trying to please others, and I have to push myself to just do me, ya know? I used to love to write, and write deep stuff, but it's hard for me now. This is actually kinda hard too.

    My family is very diverse racially, and that has given me the opportunity to love and know people of different backgrounds intimately from start. My grandparents also made a big impact on my life. My grandfather was an outdoors men, a socialite, and an eloquent speaker, writer, and musician. He and my grandmother were previously married, happened upon each other(sort of), and essentially lived happily ever after for 40+ years. They were made for each other, and they spoiled my idea of love. They showed me what it could be. I def attribute my romanticism to them. **sniffles** They were very active together, constantly seeking out new experiences together, and meeting new people. They worked hard, but played so much harder. They were best friends. One of my most fond memories is of them chasing each other through their house, smacking each other on the ass in jest. They were like children, with a big dirty crush on the other. Their marriage ended with my grandfather's death not too long ago. His death was followed by the deaths of some very close friends and family members of mine as well, all within about a 3 year time frame.

    I find peace in nature. It has a way of making me feel connected to the world. I grew up in the sticks. When I was younger, I longed to move away to a big city ,like New York, with more people and more things to do. I briefly wanted to model. I made my city break when I was 18, and lived in cities until just recently, when I finally came back closer to what's always been home. I live in the countrified suburbs of a major metro area now, and it's currently fitting. I get the itch to move regularly though, and I regret buying a house sometimes because it's got me anchored down. I really needed to get an RV or something and go from place to place. Or live on a houseboat.

    Campy things have sentimental value to me, and I love being outside and in the woods or at a lake or river. I like canoeing, and hiking, and singing camp songs still(i.e, Location:Way down yonder where nobody goes...). I used to be a lifeguard at a day camp. I have a special affection for children, and a personal interest in the plight of children. My childhood was sometimes painful, but also often full of fun and imagination. My friends were my siblings, and they are like my family to this day. I adopt people, regularly. I took full custody of a friend's little one for years because she couldn't really provide for him. I guess I'm the one my friends go to when they're in trouble, or they need to laugh. I'm silly as hell, and I like to do cartwheels.

    Finally, I guess I'm a bit of a rebel. I attended a Christian school for a significant part of my life and had to fight to maintain my sense of self fairly frequently. I got saved at 10ish at a Michael W. Smith concert. I was socially and politically conservative until I was around 19ish, when some real life experiences had the personal effect of taking me outside of my own sheltered life, and my own head, and changing my opinion of quite a few things. I got really liberal, and then conservative again, and now I'm pretty much an inbetweener. Religiously, I consider myself a spiritual agnostic.

    Enough about me now...carry on.
    By the way, this was kinda therapeutic, so thanks.

Hope i don't sound offending i wouldn't have meant it that way i'm just curious.
    I am not offended at all, I was actually expecting this kind of response to what I wrote. I would like say that I am very consistent in my behavior, I am not Jekyll and Hyde, its just that people perceive me completely different from what I have noticed. I have been called "a real bad boy" and "the nicest guy in the world" in a matter of hours by two different persons. I have actually hanged out with different friends of my and the thing that I have noticed is that they don't get along because their point of views on a number of different things conflict and end up not liking each other or hating each other, yet they are still my friends and don't have issues with me or question my behavior. Till this day not one person has ever called me fake or insinuated to it aside from you. I won't lie about whom I am, what you know about me only depends on how much I trust you and open up to you.

    IOW, it's not about wearing a 'false face' of any sort, it's merely about controlling what facets of yourself that a particular person gets to experience, based on what you know of them and what they can handle and how you can best relate to them?

    wow quite a experience. Thats some pretty bad social anxiety. Remember never be afraid of making a mistake or being looked down on. To beat your social anxiety your just going to have to dive in a conversation and not care. Once you realize there really isnt anything to be afraid about you should do well.
    That's pretty much what I did.

    But it takes time to unravel deep-seated insecurities, get some emotional stamina, and develop some external calluses. Some of it was because I expected people to reject me if I made a mistake.

    Even if people criticize me or have a bad reaction to something I do or say, though, I realized that generally they weren't going to hold it against me as a person, it was just in relation to my mistake. Hence, that freed me up some more to take chances and not worry as much.

    I also recommend you get this book I own it and read it when my conversational skills start getting a little rusty. Amazon.com: Conversationally Speaking : Tested New Ways to Increase Your Personal and Social Effectiveness (0746623014009): Alan Garner: Books It will also teach you how to keep relationships very healthy by correcting the problems of communication between you. Sounds like you need a hug too
    Is that in the book?
    (And do you look like Christian Bale?)

    haha you got to love children. what kind of embarrassing things do they say?
    If what they said was embarrassing, why would I want to repeat it here on public forum?

    Thats good you improved on your social skills. yeah social situations can really drain out introverts just because it requires so much energy from them to act well socially. The more you do it the easier it is to stay fully charged and also have other people bring you energy.
    It just took some practice, to figure out the "rules" and avoid stepping on people's toes as well as convey what exactly i wanted to convey, and then I was good to go.

    I just have to be careful or I get caught "out" when my batteries inexplicably die.

    I have a lot of books too that i got for the same reason. I have about 70 of them and barely read any. If i had a lot of extra money to spare though i would probably buy more though lol!
    I probably have somewhere between 500-1000.
    But I stopped counting years ago.

    Now I just count stacks.

    Mmmmmmhhhh better watch out though for heart problems though! The FDA are as$@#%#@ for not keeping things like bad hydrogenated oils off the shelf.
    uh..... I was just being funny.
    (well, I thought I was. doh!)

    If you're seriously interested in an answer to that I'd be willing to PM you. If you're just curious but don't mind either way, I'd rather not go into that too much. Either way, it's a closed chapter for me now.
