I hope your parents aren't SJs with an attitude like that lol.
Unfortunately they aren't. My xxFP mother doesn't care very much nonetheless, my INTP father is quite strict but I don't live with him. I'm very ambitious myself, I don't need anyone else to make my life miserable with their demands. Childish as it may seem.
Unless it would be obvious to others and reflect poorly on me, I regularly arrive at places at least an hour early so I can explore the area myself, in my own way, before I meet whoever I'm meeting. Also, often so I have time to eat first. I can't be in the moment when I'm hungry.
Today, I'm going to catch a train four hours ahead of time to beat the traffic. That makes me happy.
This habit might suggest that I don't have much of a life. Valid speculation. Or, maybe I just shift my transportation schedule to spend the normal amount of alone time in places other than home, where I prefer to spend the absolute minimum of my time. I feed on changing scenery.

Another thing that made me feel happy yesterday was my sense of confidence in tutorials. My identity is very much dependent on achieving in whatever disciplines I am passionate about, and I enjoyed being able to ask new, relevant questions.
