I was bossy. I certainly wasn't as timid as I am now. As a teenager and an adult I've cared about other people's opinions too much for my own good, letting it get to me and turn me into a restrained and a passive person. Back then I couldn't have cared less. I was a tomboy, active, curious, stubborn and pretty selfish. I feel that I was alive then, whereas as an adult I mostly exist.
As for type, I'd say that I've always been the type I gather myself to be. On a basic core level, I think that the things that make me who I am have been pretty constant, some things have probably lost their intensity/significance due to life circumstances but they're still present in some way. I don't look back at my childhood as the best part of my life, I'm more future oriented, some things have changed in me, some things have gotten better as much as some thing have gotten worse and things continue to be in constant flux around the core. Such is life.
