I'm known as the loud one in my family, which is really almost completely inaccurate when they're talking about me to strangers. The way they say it makes me seem incredibly outgoing and energetic, but what they're really talking about is how loud I talk. I don't even notice it, I think I may be hard of hearing or something, because I don't get it.
Antimony - LOL!! Do tell! How did you pick up this murderous tag?
When I was a kid, my little sister used to annoy the hell out of me, the little ENFJ evil....anyway, yeah. So I used to attack her physically out of anger. I kind of grew out of it fairly soon, but still semi-beat up my other little sister. Sometimes, shut up just wasn't enough
So now, whenever someone does something wrong, someone will call my name and I get to chase after them while they run in terror
Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

My mom thinks I'm "stubborn, heartless, and loud , with attitude." >:/. but she also thinks of me as the "fun" one.
My dad calls me the "lone wolf" or the " modernized one"
And my eldest sisters refer to me as "the bitchy one"(they say this one the most), or sometimes the "Scary/Angry/Serious" one; I think this is because I disagree with them on so many things, or become very "enthusiastic" about the subject we are discussing, that they take my enthusiasm as an extreme rejection to their opinion. When in fact, I am just verbalizing my thoughts on the subject and they just happen to be the opposite of theirs.
Scary/Angry has a lot to do with me being extremely controlling of my environment. I like things done a certain way, I don't like people playing around with things, I like order, structure, and neatness. If something offsets that, they're going to hear about it.
Youngest sister thinks I'm the "mean one", mainly because when she does something wrong, or says something rude, I confront her about it, treat her her age, and tell her not to do it again; whereas my other sisters don't do that, they just laugh it off, or baby her.
My brother thinks I'm "crazy/scary", because, again, I'm the only one that doesn't put up with his misbehavior, or major attitude towards my parents. When he crosses the line, I bare my teeth. Being the only boy is not an excuse for him to be a dick.
I'm the one they stay away from during discussions, I don't like people thinking things should be a certain way because they've "always been this way" or " this is how it should be"--all things they believe( hence the name," modern one") , and I don't take sides, which pisses them off. However, I'm also the person everyone comes to when they need someone to accompany them, or listen without judgement.
They usually stay away from me when they need advice, unless they're super desperate. I tend to get a little out of their comfort zone with my solutions.
I honestly don't know how my family refers to me anymore.
(If they do at all.)
I think they used to consider me the "good kid" or "the family success story," though.

“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
