i relate a lot to both of these posts, but also admit that sometimes i do intervene and have been a catalyst in both clean and painful change in others' lives..sometimes the urge to guide or protect is too strong to ignore. perhaps female NFs tend to experience this more..?
i am apparently a very nurturing type (so i've been told), with both animals and people.. it's something that i think has always caused old women and parents of small children to favor me.
until someone mentioned it to me i had never really considered it noteworthy as it's basically instinctual. it makes me feel cheesy and overly feminized sometimes when i am aware of it.
