    I relate to this! All of it!

    Just because we chose peace over freedom, doesn't mean we wouldn't want the world to move forward and grow through new ideas, It probably wouldn't be possible without you guys, all of you. That being said as soon as the ENTJ usurps us, everyone including you guys are basically screwed... sorry about that.


    ... I should write a book.

    I would like to ask the other NFJs how they view their tempers and their personal experiences with it. I ask this because I frequently feel, even when I'm calm and rather "Zen", that I've swallowed fire. When I watch other NFJs, I relate to the overmastering drive to help, rescue and connect to people, but also to that weird combustive underconscience that is no more malevolent than real fire, but just as blistering. I want harmony and safety for people, and I also have this war-like pounding in my blood. Rescue and contention: Are the two meant to go together?

    I've struggled with feelings of ambivalence over this since I was young, like I *should* be "cool" because that's what was constantly thrown up in my face as the ideal when I was growing up. Even minor displays of emotional reaction were yelled down or considered bad or startling.

    I try to ignore or hide it because I can't make it go away. My father, an INFJ, has a very fiery personality, and two other male friends of mine, both INFJs, are the same way. Very intense and combustive by nature (read: not insane, flighty, irrational, malicious or shrill...).

    When I see Sidney Poitier, I relate to him strongly. He was/is pretty intense, but not out of control or unreasonable. I don't feel out-of-control or unreasonable either, but I *do* feel that being this naturally ferocious (even when contained) is frowned upon? My twin is very understanding and tries to help me be comfortable with myself.

    I'm really DONE with feeling like I have to disown part of me to be acceptable.

    I want to hear from other NFJs what it's been like for them. Do you have this same thing? Can you tell me about it/describe it to me?
    I have a very silent temper. I have very very strong emotions and I'm not always comfortable laying them on the table. I sometimes feel that i dampen down my intensity so that it doesn't scare others away. I feel strongly about most everything and because generally I'm really easy going and don't lose it often people tend to think that nothing bothers me. If they only knew. Its funny you mentioned Sidney Poitier...in the movie To Sir With Love...those kids pushed him and pushed him and EVEN when he did lose his temper it was clear he was controling the worst of it. (Yes I know it was a movie) but I'm a teacher and I am TOTALLY like that...at work and in my life. It takes alot to make me angry and even when I'd love to lose it and wig out on people I'm still thinking about how unacceptable it would be to lose it completely so I have a reign on it and I don't blow up completely. I wonder what would happen if I did. I know I was angry and stressed for a time and instead of blowing up at others I lost hair and sleep and it was awful. . .I think prob if I'd let loose and blown up I wouldn't have nursed a serious bald spot (quarter sized) for a good year. *sigh*

    Anyway...I relate to alot of what people here are saying. I think I'm very much like the description....one minute sunshine next a thundercloud. I think that's looked upon as crazy but I've learned to live with it...I embraced me...I'm not so bad
    for my life is slowed up by thought and the need to understand what I am living.

I look at her as being the stronger one, but she discourages such talk out of me.
    That's kind of funny, because I also have an NFP sister, and she's exactly like that. I often find myself wishing I were as strong and even-keeled as she is.

    Even-keeled... any other NFPs laughing here? I don't quite see how I'm even-keeled, that's for sure. Gah! I still need to get my laundry done; I'm out of clean clothes Yeah... I'm even-keeled alright :rolli:

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    Haha, well, my sister's an INFP like you, and she's quite even-keeled. Maybe she's just good at appearing so on the outside (or maybe it just seems that way in comparison with me), but generally she's pretty calm.

    I wonder if that's just the difference between dominant Fe and dominant Fi... Believe me, you both very likely feel just as strongly in the end.

    Edit: if I even dated an NFJ again I'd hope to give her someplace to be on fire and not have to feel bad about it afterward.

    Why would you feel bad about this? I'm a curious mouse...

    Not me, the girl; a place for her to do it with out her having to feel guilty after.
