    Is this the thread for the anti-socials?

    Actually I relate to this, and tend to associate it with ESFx...I was just touching upon this in another thread. I think maybe it's because I'm a more mild extrovert.

    Jen, why don't you tell her about your issue with her son? Clear the air.

    The key is to say no multiple times.

    clearly you know nothing about parents and their children. it's also not my place to point these things out to her. he is quite a bit older than my kids and sadly has no friends. i feel bad for the kid but have no solution for her. i invited them to cub scouts but he's autistic, has adhd and a few other things i can't recall and it kind of freaked him out. too much stimulation. he was hanging out with some boys his age in the neighborhood but they were getting him into trouble so she doesn't let him hang out with them anymore so i think to her my kids are a "safer" alternative.

    let me clarify that i have no issues with kids who are "different" as my own son likely has adhd and anxiety. he takes medication for his anxiety which has made a huge positive difference but he has never been aggressive with others as my neighbors son has been.

    Autism is the ADHD of the 2000's.

    This. Never ever tell a mother that her child is aggressive and quite possibly a bully(or that there is anything quite possible wrong with her child), because the momma bear claws will come out.

    My sister is INFJ and my mom is ESFJ. It's like mixing oil and water.

    i agree that a lot of children are misdiagnosed which is why i said my son is possibly adhd but i will not give him medication for adhd because it's basically poison and behavior therapy has been much more effective and safer. have you ever met an autistic child? there are varying degrees of autism but it's usually not too difficult to spot. i knew from the get go that our son wasn't autistic even though that label might have made things at school a lot easier. instead it took a year of homeschooling and a hell of a fight with the school system to get him the help he needed.

    yes! and she's aware of how her son is so my telling her isn't going to be constructive. my kids want to hang out with him so tomorrow i will have to go over here and endure the socialization. she's not exactly an easy person to be around and while i like her, there are things about her i don't care for and i would prefer to avoid the interaction. this isn't something i've imagined, as two of my close friends who recently met her noticed these things too.

    My family lives in a small town. If you and your neighbor are outside at the same time, you'll make small talk and that kind of thing. But that's pretty much it; everybody seems to mind their own business. Which is probably weird for a small town, but nice.

    The dorm I live in this year is pretty horrible though. The dorms I've lived in in the past had hundreds of kids, but this one has 30-some. So everybody knows everybody. And in this dorm, it's not just extroverts...it's like, hyper extroverts. Ignorant extroverts, who expect that everybody in the world operates the same way that they do. Quite a few of them are pretty fake, too, for lack of a better word.

    I'm pretty sure a lot of people dislike me because I keep to myself. I did, at the beginning, try really hard to become friends with them, but I always felt so awkward and uncomfortable because I felt like I was supposed to be entertaining people. Can't I just act how I normally act? Why is that not okay? Jeebus. So...I used to get harassed, but we've kind of moved past the harassment stage, and now I'm just shunned.

    I at least have one other introvert in here. She's an ISFJ, I believe, and we both feel the same way, ha.

    This situation is kind of sucky, but I just have to remember I only have 4 more months to deal with it. :workout:

    I miss my awesome extroverted friends back home.
