my biggest surprise in life has been "wait... other people DONT think like this?"
growing up in an all NP household has it's drawbacks... at times.
Dude an NP household sounds awesome. Would be so much fun!
I know what you mean though, I used to think that everyone else thought this way too. That lead to a lot of projection and assumptions. It left a lot of people going 'wtf? When did I say that?' or 'where did that come from?'.
Chimera of Filth
A gruesome beast with dripping flesh
Clings to me as a sick fixture
My throbbing heart it gnawed apart
It stalks and hunts me through mirrors
This is a difficult question to answer, since I'm pretty much everywhere.
Not gonna lie - a decent chunk of my thoughts are focused on where I fit in, how things affect me, and (as @shortnsweet says) how I think. But I see commonality with most everyone and everything, and those thoughts are extremely broad and considerate of others.
So, less 'selfishness' and more 'realizing fundamental truths experientially.'
These truths, as I see them, guide absolutely everything else for me.
Aww, I was hoping for more responses in this thread! I'm inclined to flood the ispy with the same thread for all types. I love this topic.

I think about what i'm doing with my life; where i'm going, and how i'm going to get there.
In my free time, I have a million ideas for projects that I know i'm never going to get around to. My most complete idea is for an entire fantasy setting I've been working on since I was about 8 years old which I've gotten numerous friends to give input and help build with me. Whether I'm going to use this fantasy world in a book, videogame, tabletop rpg, or whatever else is totally up to me to decide once I find a direction to put my mind to that I can follow through with.
I used to start little projects all the time, but didn't finish any of them. I've learned to curb that urge, so now if I'm going to put my effort and energy into something creative, I try to go for the long haul. Getting other people interested is a good method of keeping yourself in line, because you create your own peer pressure to keep you going.
