    you know, everything about me being an ENFP has come about from my drive for wanting meaning. it is why i like having fun all the time, it is why i philosophize, it is why i want to be a friendly person. when it comes to importance though, i'm not sure if i'll ever be fulfilled. a compliment always brightens my day but i know that only means so much. i think until i come up with a piece of philosophy that shakes up the world somehow, i won't feel that sense of importance fully.

    I don't think I've necessarily felt a sense of importance. So I don't know what would do it.

    One thing that makes me feel insignificant, however, is when I put a lot of thought into something, and having it dismissed due to people not taking the time to think things through.

    Somethings have a minimum complexity to it. There is no making it "simpler" because then there would be nothing to explain. It is probably the biggest frustration in my life.

    I've had to explain things to people over and over again.

    Often, then only way to make them pay attention is to actually get angry.

    Then they listen, and understand, and usually even consider it worth the time to listen.

    When I ask them what about my initial explanation they didn't get, they just shake their heads. "I don't know."

    It makes me think, most people just don't want to listen, and I want to find another way than just getting angry to get people to listen.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.
