    Easier said than done though.

    Interestingly, an ENFP told me once how far I'm away from being a realist as an idealist.

    Beautifully sumarized, Vala Faye!

    I kind of feel like I'm masquerading as an NF, but I felt like I was masquerading as an NT.. so, I'm going to dig up how I'm idealistic and throw it out there.

    Ummm, I have these ideas that, strangely enough, I tried to snuff out, but they wouldn't go away. I ended up getting kind of sick when trying to kill that part of me off. No matter what I *have* to believe that everyone's life can contain enough spark of revelation to justify living the harshest of lives.

    I believe that everyone is good, and all bad things are just misunderstandings either on their part or mine. I believe in 2nd chances and 120th chances.

    I see a version of reality that other people push, and I reject it. It just doesn't make any sense to me.
