I used to have a tendency to think things like
- "no one would share my interests in _____"
- "no one feels the same way as I do about that"
- "no one else would feel that way"
- "no one was going to stand up for that guy if I didn't"
then one day at around 14 I decided "fuck it" and became much more open about my interests. to my surprise, I found that their were a number of people who could relate to my interests and feelings on things. it never occurred to me that there were actually other people out their with whom I shared emotional emotional ground and preferences
do any other FPs relate to this. I'm pretty sure it has to do with Fi
