    I notice you have a Mark Twain quote in your signature, do you find you relate a lot to things Ne-dom authors say, or at least the wya they express themselves (Dickens, Wilde, Hunter S. Thompson, Elizabeth Gilbert, Kurt Vonnegut, whoever else you can think of)?
    Yes! Absolutely. Same with Fi heavy writers or artists too. I instantly relate to expression of either of those functions in words or art. It's like ahh yes, a little slice of home.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    awwwe, thats still cute though. there was this big project in the third grade about "what do you want to be when you grow up" where you had to write a four paragraph essay on why you want to be this or that. I wrote it on my own and tried to convince my teacher why being a mermaid is dutiful profession and she needs to stop being so mean. The bitch called my parents and my parents are an ENFJ, and ENFP couple. I remember my ENFP dad telling her with a thick boston accent on the phone "WAAT? MY DAUGTAH CAN BE A MERMAID IF SHE GOD DAMN WANTS TOO."

    I don't know if it's a good career, but my friends hired a mermaid for their kid's pool party. The kids were afraid and wouldn't get in the pool. But see, it's not so far fetched. It's sad so many teachers rain down invalidation on imaginative types.

    Most epic dad ever

    I remember being asked to write a story as a nine year old in class. It could be about whatever we wanted it to be, whatever our dreams were like. And sure enough, I wrote about a girl who could turn into a mermaid and had a scepter that turned into a glass pendant when she became a mermaid.

    ....my teachers reaction when she gave me back my story was priceless - she seriously didn't know what to say.

    Yeah, I got along well with teachers I showed respect too but also showed that is very hard for me to think logically. It's always been a love/hate battle with them. They like me, but they don't like my nonsense.

    hahahahaha, thats awesome! it sounds like a sailor moon mermaid story. we read the book bunnicula in the fourth grade, and the last day we read the book we could dress up like vampires. like a cape or some teeth. I WENT ALL OUT. and my teacher loved it! I loved my fourth grade teacher. When I had trouble with math, she would ask if I needed help after school, then fed me cookies. She also lived in the same town as the school, and one day after school she brought her puppy for me to play with. I cried the last day of school because she wasn't my teacher anymore. BALLED my eyes out. That was the first and last time I was a teachers favorite, and I think I cherished it very much so haha

    One of my best friends since childhood is ENFP 7w6 so/sx... And one of the things we were asked repeatedly in our teen years was "what are you guys on and can I/we have some?" haha. <-This was not meant as an insult... nor was it put forth as a clever way of saying...'wow, you guys are sure full of happiness and energy." No, ever single time this occurred it was a genuine, straightforward, practical "share your drugs with us" question. And when we would explain that we were not under the influence of any kind of tangible/material substance...I can remember looks of suspicion - I'm not even kidding you. Looks as if to say..."You know if you didn't want to share you could have just said so...you didn't need to make up some elaborate story..."


    Was your extraversion very apparent from an early age? I have read that a lot of ENFP's started out dreamy and seemingly introverted, before they figured out a way to bring their Ne to the masses (Robin Williams and Russell Brand for instance, both claim to have been pretty withdrawn kids). Or were you just adorable little chatterboxes since you were little?
    I've always been both...dreamy and off in my own world/introverted... or if I'm in the right mood for it and I'm around interesting people I will be extroverted/social.

    It must have been kind of nice to have NF parents in one way. I mean, don't get me wrong, good parents are good parents, but I find my ISTP father has a hard time understanding where I'm coming from.

    Ha! There's something about ENFP girls and mermaids...maybe we should start a thread! Ariel seems pretty ENFP too (The disney version mind you, the fairy tale version seems super INFP).
