    I'll start with my INTJ brother's, because his are more amusing:
    - He had a "celebrity brain collection" on display in a glass case in his room. The "brains" were large wads of cotton sitting in water-filled trays that were labeled with the names of famous people, most of them politicians.
    - Yelling "stop this juvenile foolishness!" at other kids during recess
    - When another kid called him a nerd, he replied "if I'm a nerd, it must be a wonderful thing to be".
    - This sounds more ENxP-ish, but he would change into a neon orange nylon suit, with the hood pulled so far forward it gave him 'Shelley DuVall ears', and would insist that his name was "Daniel Zini".

    some of mine:
    - I really wish I had the picture of me as a baby where I'm lying down on my stomach on a newspaper, "reading". though I guess newspapers aren't stereotypical INFP reading material.
    - My cousin and I were playing with stuffed animals, and whenever she wanted the one I had, I would immediately hand it over. My grandmother told me I didn't have to keep giving my toys away, to which I replied "But I will share". (Could sound more Fe than Fi.)
    - My family went to see the movie Beethoven, and I started bawling when the vet says "the dog has been destroyed".
    - When I played with my stuffed animals, it usually involved trying to heal or comfort them.
    - This one isn't that INFP-ish, but it's creepy enough to share: my favorite and longest-term imaginary friend was a bed-ridden, toothless old lady named Granny. I "fed" her mush and talked to her everyday (thankfully bed pans and bathing were left out). When I got tired of her, I found a way to get her to go away without admitting she wasn't real: I conveniently forgot to feed her and she died. (I was still innocent enough not to realize this happens in real life).
    - My naive socialist-utopian idealism at age 7 or 8: "Why do we need money? Why can't people just give each other stuff?"
    - Getting my leg pinned under two junior-league football players long after all the other girls around me had scattered because they had actually been watching the game instead of mentally teleporting to Planet Unicorn like I was.
    - Actually studying the paintings during an art gallery visit, while my two ESxP cousins were running around playing tag.
    - my 4th grade teacher told me I'm the messiest girl in the class.
    - Writing a slightly surrealistic poem about a girl named Roberta who can converse with the sun
    - Noticing that The Lion King has a similar plot to Hamlet, because I'd been reading about Shakespeare in the encyclopedia

    Oh I just thought of a very 1 thing I used to do in high school (9th and 10th grade in particular). @EJCC I don't know if you ever had these sorts of tendancies, but I had a ton when I was younger. Much less so as I grew up.

    I got an MP3 player, and in a matter of days from getting it, I loaded some songs onto it. I listened to the exact same sequence of songs every morning as I left my house to walk to the bus stop, then on the bus to school, then as I walked to homeroom. I left my house at the exact same time every morning, right down to the second. If I was off by a bit I would get very annoyed with myself, and god forbid something made me late beyond my control. Because it was the same series of songs, I knew if I was walking too fast, or too slow (I would adjust accordingly), and if the bus was ahead of behind of schedule. Again, right down to the second. Once 10th grade started, I changed the song list. It started with the song that almost never made it to play when I was in 9th grade (it only would if everything was super behind schedule). I would also reset my watch to align perfectly down to the second with the bell system in my high school. My watch would rotate off by a few seconds every few weeks so after a while I would have to reset my watch which really annoyed me. People were initially spooked when I would start walking to the door "premtively" only to have the bell go off a few seconds later.

    I was an anal little bitch .

    O_O Whoa. That is definitely kind of creepy. Taking the caregiver trope to a whole new level?

    (Related ESTJ one: I briefly had an imaginary friend, because I had seen it on TV and read about them in books, but then I got REALLY bored. Because friends are supposed to be interesting in a not-you way, and no matter how creative I got, the imaginary friend was still going to be me.)

    Whoa -- nope, I never did anything to that extreme! Closest I can think of is that when I was in high school, I spent a couple of weeks listening to the same 8.5-minute song every morning while I showered, to make sure I didn't shower for too long. But that got really boring after a while, so I stopped.

    I can't remember my childhood that well, it's very fuzzy to me and largely white noise but what I can remember amounts to:

    • Getting a plastic pea stuck up my nose in nursery at age 3, but after a hard blow I got it out again.
    • Also in nursery we had a day where we were dressing up as surgeons and doctors, I fought and fought for the coat, but instead just got the gloves and mask...the mask was an achievement I think I had to punch a kid to get it.
    • Refusing to admit I had learned a lesson when being held in by a teacher for fighting with another boy, his loss I ended up sneaking across to the other room and drawing/reading some of the books there after the teacher wouldn't let me back outside.
    • Pushing my brother in a duck pond after he upset me.
    • Breaking a heavy plastic gun over the back of my brothers head so hard it cut it open and concussed him.
    • Threatening a kid in school with scissors and saying I was going to cut his nose off.
    • Loved to be left alone to play on the games on the PC's at junior schools, was one of those kids who knew how to get them working and sneak games onto them from online which a lot of the teachers didn't know about at the time.
    • Was alternately clingy and loving to suddenly cold and distant, not interacting with anyone or wanting to be bothered, lots of lashing out physically when people invaded my space.
    • The kid whose mum had to fight for him to go to parties.
    • In Junior was a bit more outgoing, used to disrupt classes to get laughs or because I was bored.
    • Did NOT do well at school, found the whole thing cloistered and boring. If I didn't have an innate interest in what was being taught I just could not be made to pay attention, it was like my brain had a block on it for those things.
    • Went to various different 'facilities' for kids with behavioural difficulties.
    • More violence, seriously harmed a girl for no real reason at all, definitely haunts me.
    • Broke the little finger of my right hand trying to punch a kid in the face by hitting an oak door. Kicked him in the chest instead.
    • Was actually very independent and driven to do the things I enjoyed, was not a sharer or a carer. Ironically the opposite seems to have happened with age and now I'm a phobic monster who is scared most of the time. Would love to get some of that confidence back even if most of it did result in violence.


    I realise this makes me sound like a violent psycho.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Suppose a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?"
    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.

    I was a quiet, somewhat nerdy kid, but I had a hidden extravert that liked to pop its head out, showing a wit and sense of humor which endeared me to many kids and adults--it saved me from being a total outcast with no friends. I also had a bit of a rage problem. One minute I could be calm and chill, but some dipshit bully would say the wrong thing or shove me and out of nowhere I would explode in a ball of physical rage. I also had a knack for annoying teachers by questioning their facts and calling them out on inconsistencies in things they said/taught.

    I also used to hang out with my neighborhood friends on the weekend and we would take our bicycles apart, then reassemble them. For some reason, this drove my ESxJ dad insane.

    As I kid I was super shy. I wouldn't speak, wouldn't make friends. I always sort of enjoyed peoples' company though and loved it if they would take dares or tell jokes. Teachers always saw me as adorable and innocent, and I had a ton of ambition to get good grades. I had a huge imagination.

    I always got angry when someone would reprimand me or I heard about punishment. I was insanely defiant and stubborn, and would argue for hours on end until I got what I wanted.

    When I hit about twelve I became a lot more outgoing and quickly gained friends. People always called me funny, tough, confident, and sweet. I love sports and still strive to get honors in school classes, and like being with people. If I can just do something that could get me in trouble I'm happy

    My extroverted nephew:
    His mom: Are you going to change your brother's diapers?
    Him: Noo!! Those are disgusting!
    His mom: Oh yeah, if you're bad you'll have to..
    Him: You want me to beat you up?! How's about a knuckle sandwich!?
    His mom: What did you say to me?!
    Him: *flirtacious wink and smirk*

    My introverted nephew:
    *Seeing my neighbor working on his truck down the street*
    Him: We gotta go help!
    Me: Sure buddy, let's go say hi..
    Him: *Says NOTHING to the neighbor, just squats down next to the tire, checks out the parts for a while, then starts to screw the lug nuts onto the tire.*
    Neighbor: Wow.. He's putting them on the right way on the first try.
    Me: He loves fixing stuff. And breaking it.
    Neighbor: He's pretty mechanically inclined. Hey there buddy! You fixing that?
    Him: *Grins* I fixin' it!
    Neighbor: Haha, no hellos or nothing huh?
    Me: Rarely.. He just wants to get down to work.
    *Nephew continues to ignore us clearly talking about him as he finishes lug nuts and tries to figure out how to put the hub cap on despite the fact the tire isn't on the vehicle yet.*
    Kantgirl: Just say "I'm feminine and I'll punch anyone who says otherwise!"
