    Primarily imaginary games. We loved to play detective and got rather elaborate with it at times.

    I had conversations and made up stories/histories with my stuffed animals/dolls. I played teacher/mother a lot. Lots of imaginary games. I wasn't an outside-kick-the-ball-around kid. I was an inside with one close friend, quiet, well-behaved, very very imaginative one.

    Yeah I played a lot of fantasy based games too, I think a lot of kids did. The difference was that the other kids always seemed to want to play the same characters - projections of what they wanted to be. The boys always wanted to be cops or warriors and the girls pretended to be nurses, princesses or mothers. Most of them didn't even jump between socially imposed fantasies either, they just picked one and always ran with it. For example, a girl would like to play the mother figure in a family role-play; then when we would play medieval knights, she would want to play the Queen, with us being the princes. It kinda annoyed me as a child, though I never said anything about it. I thought a lot of people lacked a good imagination.

    Those were probably my most common games. My INTX father didn't like video games, as he thought they were mindless and violent. He wanted me and my sister to read instead. As a result, I ended up fantasizing and thinking about video games and cartoons lol. I think a lot of my games became an outlet for my imagination.

    I liked playing army (still do :), video games, martial arts, legos, dinosaurs, exploring, and taking stories that my friends and I liked and putting ourselves into them. I didn't like sports at all, although I was on a basketball and soccer team for a little while because my parents wanted me to play them.

    Did you spend your childhood in shadow function?

    I liked to build stuff. I played a lot in the forest. I liked hide-and-seek type of games. Like the one with flashlights, it was fun. I drew very detailed fight scenes (Westerns, space ships, pirates), and I guess it was a game for me to go to the warehouse we had on the back yard and read science magazines for hours. Math used to be too, but then they started teaching it when I got to school and it became boring.

    I played imaginary games as well. Two of my favorites were Chef (cooking with the leaves and dirt outside) and the "Pretend Things Are Other Things" game. We weren't very well-off, so my imagination more than served its purpose in my adolescence. I never felt without. I was also a very girly tomboy. For instance, I liked to run and shout and wrestle while playing with bubbles sometimes. It was one of my absolute favorite things to do! I'm not sure how I reconciled the two, but I was a kid. I'm sure most kids were like me.

    I also liked to paint and put on shows for my family.
