    I do this - and why would anyone confuse those words used as examples; they mean different things.

    Guilty as charged. Not to be a bubble-burster, but as an INFP I too relate to the above. Proof-reader extraordinaire. Signs spelled incorrectly drive me nuts. Words are very important!

    That was so fun - my sister-in-law and I went to one of those "Color Me Beautiful" nights - the system really works believe it or not LOL!

    SO, my point - certain behaviours don't necessarily support concluding your type.

    Plus, I dislike the infjorinfp site myself as well - why? Because I can tell it's written not from the vantage point of the infp, but from infj. Not that's there's anything inherently wrong with that, but who can claim to wholly unbiased to the preference of their own type?

    wow. totally. never realized this was a personality trait. thought it was just me.

    however, paradoxically perhaps, i suck at finding the right words verbally. often watering down (at the least) or saying the absolute antithesis of what i mean (at the most).

    i frequently have to spend long amounts of time (this just happened yesterday morning) telling my hubby that "no, i didn't mean that!" to which he says, "well, that's what you said!" to which i finally and exasperatedly say, "well, just don't listen to me! gosh!" haha.

    not always so funny though when it breeds fights. and misunderstandings.

    i like her site. it seems like she's put a lot of time and energy into differentiating between the two types. i agree with her infj characteristics for the most part (i haven't navigated through her whole site yet), except the part about holidays. except for christmas and giving christmas presents/santa gifts to my kids, and starting a month in advance, i'm pretty much irreverent when it comes to birthdays, holidays, and long distance family phone calls. i believe in giving when i feel like it, irrespective of the 'day.' so, i guess she calls that 'infp.' i am close to borderline on j/p, so perhaps that's where that comes in to play.

    i like your rainbow rose, btw. good thread.

    ADHD has been mislabeled as ADD, but the two are different problems. There was a time when ADD was the term for the type 2 attention deficit disorder without the combined hyperactivity issue listed below, but it looks like that is no longer the case. ADHD without hyperactivity as one type seems like a curious label to me, but apparently that is how it is defined. It would be more logical in my mind to have the three types as follows:
    1. ADHD Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
    2. ADD Attention Deficit Disorder
    3. HID Hyperactivity-Impulsivity Disorder (or something)

    Perhaps the lines are easily blurred, so it is easier to label them all as essentially the same?

    3. ADHD, Predominantly Hyperactive-Impulsive Type: Hyperactivity-impulsivity but not inattention symptoms.
    I struggle with attention issues, but doubt it would classify in the above. My concentration is deep, but easily shifted because it is deep. I struggle a lot with burning pans, hitting my head, etc. if my attention is elsewhere. Two years ago I was on Zoloft for depression and I think it made it worse. Coming off Zoloft wrecked my ability to focus. My mind was constantly shifting and I had to work really hard to complete a task. It was horrible. It's mostly better now, but still something I work at. I'm trying meditation and my mind leaps everywhere, but I count my breaths to 50 or 100 and at least I can maintain the sequence of numbers. I think in the long-term the meditation will really help.

    All of that rings true for me, except I do not take issue with misspellings, it doesn't bother me when other people misspell things, but it DOES bother me when I do, which happens a lot when I am tired,lol.

    I also don't relate to the fashion thing,lol.
