    It's when I try to encourage her to be neater and tidier and more organised and more careful so she doesn't get in trouble with those who don't understand what it's like!!! She's EEEEEEEEEENFP I think -- if you can label a child with MBTI. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEExtremely EEEEEEEEEEEEEEExtraverted. She's like me only more so ...

    I try to teach her the coping and organisation skills that I have tried to develop, telling her that I have had problems throughout my life with these things, and don't wish her to have the same difficulties I've had. Probably pointless ...

    She needs strong boundaries, and I've gotten very good at setting those. Very important.

    Lawl @ 16 year old me. I started this thread two years ago, & my post sounds silly to me =P

    But I love all of your examples !
    And I still love NIN, hehe.
    It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends on his not understanding it.

    SO TRUE.

    day-to-day we're a little bit ditzy but hell if we can't pull shit together in a crisis.

    my group once left a posterboard behind for a group presentation at a conference 5 hours away, and i stayed up until 4 the night before making an impromptu powerpoint (the other group members kind of gave up on it... they both went out drinking... lol). the next day we got up on stage (and i did most of the talking) and later we were complimented by both our (rather critical, perfectionist) boss and the director of the whole conference on how great the presentation was

    me too!!!! i'm glad i'm not alone on this!!! i'm great at cleaning/organizing, but god, keeping it that way. SO HARD. as soon as i get stressed out even a tiny bit my room flies to the bottom of my priority list and all that lovely organization just goes to hell. my mom says i've been like this ever since i was really little.

    fuck, yeah. since when did SERIOUS and intelligent become corequisites? i can be SERIOUS too, but what's the point? unless it's an emergency or something, it's such a buzzkill. geez.

    Yeah, there are very few situations where seriousness is truly necessary. Even business meetings. People love it if you lighten things up. I used to think I had to pretend to be a serious person but that's crap. (Do Americans use the word 'crap' to mean anything other than a dice game?)

    I only pretend to be serious when going through airport security. I think it's probably illegal to be silly there. You'll get tazed to death if you do anything remotely different from 'normal' in there.

    I went to Austria and discovered it's illegal to be silly there.

    I'm always pulling together last-minute awesomeness. Sometimes the last-minuteness scares the hell out of me too!

    Wait. You expect your ex to show up at your birthday? I mean, I don't keep in touch with ANY of my ex's. Or was this while you were still together?
