    In the end, it really depends on how much I respect or care for the person, how much good I think I can do, and how appreciative they are. I can be very nurturing and supportive to those that fit those three criteria.

    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.

    1- I am a "tough love" person, mostly because I expect even more from myself and I push myself harder than most anyone else. So I have a tough time understanding people who are soft with themselves.

    2- I think I would make a great father someday.

    How nurturing I am depends on how much I respect the person in question. In other words, it's totally subjective.

    I nuture the people in my inner circle, probably too much at times.

    Sometimes quiet, gentle strangers touch me deeply and I'll respond to them in a nuturing way if they seem to need and want it, but I'd never want to impose myself on anyone.

    And cats. I adore cats.

    I'm not nurturing at all. I hate nurturing people and I also hate being nurtured. I'm more of a protector.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    There are times when I'm kind of thrust into a nurturing role and it's awkward as all hell. I have no idea what to do or say.
