    She doesn't let the kids keep their papers.
    Hopefully, I'll see them tomorrow.
    She came across very TJ in her emails to me.
    I'm not surprised my son is having a hard time with her.

    After addressing her as Dear Mrs. so-and-so, asking her for a meeting, letting her know my son couldn't come because of a previous commitment with a different teacher, and signing it Sincerely, my name, the first thing I received from her was this:
    "Any meeting would be unproductive without [your son's] presence. I shall speak to Mrs. so-and-so about excusing him for a brief period." And then she suggested a couple of time slots to choose from.

    So yeah. Not surprised my son is having a hard time with a woman like that.
    Well, just to caution you, if she turns out to be an ESTJ, all bets are off. In my first-hand experience, ESTJ and ENFJ are an explosive combination.
    There is no such thing as separation from God.

    I've witnessed that.
    It wasn't pretty.



    BTW: He's insisting that he has ADD because his thoughts keep side-tracking and it takes him too long to do his homework.
    Any comments?

    LOL. My comment on the matter is: word, homey.

    I'm puzzled because he's not doing well in his (English) Language Arts class.

    Have any of you had that experience?

    And also, what careers have worked out well for such an ENFJ?
    I did very well in English and just about anything that didn't involve numbers (in which case I really had to grind it out). I was a mechanic (which I don't recommend) and had been in robotics/automation (until the numbers threatened to take me hostage).

    Anything that can make him feel thoroughly engaged with potential to socialize and evolve.

    My husband is an ENFJ and he is very good at maths and computer science. Eventualy that led him to PhD in robotics (and he really enjoys his work). He is also a great teacher (he teaches part-time at the Uni).
    And yes, he likes to read: usually science books that are not from his field (recently he is into genetics - my field), he also likes science-fiction novels.

    That happens to me as well, whenever I find a subject that is dull or borring my mind starts wondering off 2 seconds into writing/reading the first line on the page. I too have wondered if I have ADD. lol I guess it's normal, i was a very good student back in middle school and I was always very good at math as well and I too enjoy reading a lot. But when I went to high school it all went down hill from there. lol My peers were just a bunch of clowns and I had real hard time focusing.

    Thank you for sharing that. I'll have my son read it. I'm sure he'll appreciate it.

    One I know in Norway is a makeup-artist.
    The other two I know are hopeless people who never seem to be able to move from their parents houses and get real jobs

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come
