Yeah, I think we give off more of a frenetic energy a lot of times. Maybe we'd have a better showing in a thread about which type makes you feel the most excited
Yes, exciting, fun, or even just encouraging/supportive. I don't expect calming/grounding from my ENFP friend, though I suspect I provide this to her from time to time.
Hope is the denial of reality. It is the carrot dangled before the draft horse to keep him plodding along in a vain attempt to reach it. We should remove the carrot and walk forward with our eyes open. -- Raistlin Majere
I am usually the one helping someone else calm down.
When I am upset, I need to get away from people...all of them...and figure things out. I don't like to talk about my problems. However, if I have to be with someone during a time when I am upset, I prefer it to be someone who doesn't require me to talk and who doesn't do any talking. For example, when my brother died, a boy from my class saw me sitting on the steps alone. He just came over and laid his hand on mine. He never said a word, but just sat beside me until the bell rang. He spent his break sitting in silence with me. That was enough.
A student said to his master: "You teach me fighting, but you talk about peace. How do you reconcile the two?" The master replied: "It is better to be a warrior in a garden than to be a gardener in a war." - unknown/Chinese
My husband is my human xanax- so I will have to say ESFJ. My drama, fears and anxiety are deflated by him in a nanosecond. I go from thinking the sky is falling to, "Oh. Ok. Let's go grab a pizza." Thank God for him. My family is nuts (and so is his) but together we are insanely sane.
