    Lightbulb Imaginary friends as children

    Ok, so did you have imaginary friend(s) when you were younger?

    Please post your type if it's not already in your type field/sig. Thanks!

    EDIT: It could also be correlated with T/F or P/J, I just didn't want to make so many options

    Yep, Huntry, Candle (who slept in my sister's ear and was Huntry's big sister), T-Shirt and Jackie. I named one of my dolls after my imaginary friend Huntry.

    There was also an elf who offered to teach me to blow smoke rings and who lived under our ships bell (he was named Elfy). He wrote tiny letters to me sent in the mail for a number of years and sometimes went to live with my aunt when he got sick of it at our house. According to the letters my aunt would pinch his wings all the time, but my mum wouldn't let him swear, so he kind of lived at our houses turn about. I started doubting his existance later on, but after leaving out a plate of flour with cookies in the middle of it one night and finding small footprints in it in the morning, I knew that he was indeed real.

    The Tooth Fairy and I also had a several year long correspondance. She used to conscript Elfy and some of his friends (Whistler was one of them) to make tooth pillows - little cushions with pockets in them for teeth that fell out. She and I had a little deal that she would still give me the money, but leave the teeth for me to collect. I still have a bunch of little dried up baby teeth in a toothbox somewhere!

    I desparately wanted one as a kid. I tried to conjure one up, but my magic wasn't strong enough.

    I had two. Punchy and Boxer were an elephant and a kangaroo. They weren't very well developed and I don't think they stuck around for very long.

    HAHA. That's so cute!

    Did you imagine you saw them too? Or just saw evidence pointing toward their existence (at least in your own mind)?

    I specifically remember at dinner time pretending that the door bell rang and getting up to let them in the house. When I asked my parents if they could stay for dinner I don't think they were very enthusiastic. But, I can't blame them. Who would be enthusiastic about having a couple of invisible animals with boxing gloves and shorts drop in for dinner?

    Only I could see them.

    I didn't have imaginary friends, if you don't classify teddy bears that I imagined could talk as imaginary friends. I had real friends and when they were not around, I just started doing something solitary, like drawing, or I begged for some attention from my parents (I rarely got any, they were always working on the computer, translating stuff, and whenever I asked them to come play with me they told me they'd come down in five minutes, while in fact I had to wait until dinner was ready). I don't think I've ever thought of getting myself an imaginary friend, because I never knew about the existence of that possibility.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    My cousin (INTJ?) had an imaginary friend named Nicolas whom he used as a scapegoat for bad things he had done. At last in exasperation my aunt gave him a spanking and told him to pass it on to Nicolas for her!

    Another aunt (some kind of SJ) had an imaginary friend named Fellalloyd.

    I didn't have any imaginary friends. I had imaginary strangers. I didn't talk to them... they were strangers.

    Oh yes, I did. I often chatted with various people that I imagined when I could not sleep at night. But they were rather random "visitors" than friends.

    My imaginary friend lived in the cellar. I remember how I was always sitting here in the dark and talked to him. He did not have a name, he was a ghost. Then I however started to read horror stories and stopped to walk into the cellar. At least in the dark.
