    Yup. And I've no idea what's so difficult.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Not so much misunderstood as spurned for who I am.

    Nope, I'm usually too straightforward to be misunderstood. Failing that, I also try to communicate with people in a way that they can understand me.. that used to be a conscious process, but it's more and more subconscious.

    Sometimes, Feelers might think that I'm slightly angry when I'm direct. But that's cleared up pretty quickly, especially if they already know me.

    When I feel the least understood is when I get scatterbrained if I get excited or talk too fast, getting lost in my own train of thought. That's when I get looks of confusion. I know that's my cue to slow down so that I can help others understand me.

    Sometimes, but I don't lie awake at night wishing everyone understood me.

    Well, I get described frequently as "just a bit off" by people, which could be either refering to my personality type or just me in general

    This doesn't particularly bother me though, since I'm generally likable enough to forgive for the times when I say/do something incredibly stupid or ponder something that nobody cares about for a good while.

    I think that EVERYONE feels misunderstood frequently enough, no matter what their type is, so it wouldn't be unique to just NTs

    God, yes. It's only compounded by my adolescent angst. :P

    Possibly, but I don't care.

    I feel like I don't fit into a stereotypical female role much of the time but that's not the same as being misunderstood. I don't care about that anyway.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.
