    Interesting. Most of you are J.


    I would've thought the xNFP would have a harder time with clumsiness.

    I'm super clumsy!! It usually draws attention to me, though (yay!), so I just laugh it off with everybody else.

    ^Yes, this.

    Though in the ESTJs house, that's not really an option as he attempts to hold back the firestorm that is his temper, and I try to hold back the tempest that is my disdain for caring more about items then about the person you are friends with who broke the item.
    Love is the point.

    I'm tall-ish and thin and long-limbed, and can feel a bit "noodly" at times, although no one has ever told me that (I think I just feel that way). When my head is in the clouds, then I am prone to knocking things over, dropping things, walking into poles, etc.

    When I am alert, I navigate just fine though, but it feels so precise that it makes me self-conscious. I have this inner dialog of every move, and it just feels contrived. I feel more natural when I'm floating a bit through life, but that's also when accidents occur .

    I'm a little clumsy, but luckily at 5'4" the amount of damage I can do is limited. It doesn't stop me from scraping my shoulder against doorframes as I pass through them or tripping on my feet though

    Just keeping in mind where potential trouble spots in your environment are seems to help.

    I am more likely to come off as clumsy when I know, or think, that I am being watched. I get ridiculously self-conscious and forget about the surroundings.

    When I'm just walking around, daydreaming, I have sort of an autopilot on, and it's actually pretty good.

    I usually don't recognize when I have a bad grip on something so it slips our of my hands. Thanfully old-school iPod Nanos are unbreakable.

    I broke a glass cup before, and it was kind of cool. It slipped out of my hand, the tip of the table, sending it into a spin, it bounced off the floor once, I seriously hoped it would survive, but then it EXPLODED IN MIDAIR. It was awesome even though I barely got out of cleaning the glass up (no one apparently was paying attention when I dropped it so blame couldn't be laid on me)

    I also tend to hit my head on things or accidentally having the chair fall when standing up.

    Yeah, seems like that for me too.

    Depends on how spazzy I am at the moment. If I've spent the last hours thinking about things, studying, not interacting with the real world etc. I can be clumsy, just as you. If I have been interacting with the outside world, I'm fine. I try to obtain everyday my share of physical movement, at least 1h20mins, which facilitates the connection with the sensory realm.

    Although, sometimes my mind-body connection is weird. I have some trouble doing certain simple fine-motor movement manual tasks, such as disentagling the wires of my headphones, darts, pool (omg I suck so much at pool, you have no idea). Yet I'm really good at dancing/coordinated and I can pick up sports quickly.
