I dunno, I think a lot of it comes from enforced stability that really, honestly just isn't good for Ne dominant people.
As long as I remember, my wanderlust and eagerness to bring on and embrace change and adventure in my life has been seen by most people as some kind of flaw, or due to some kind of personality defect.
People say "running away won't solve anything" and "you have to learn to settle down one day" and things like that. But I wonder - do I? Why?
Cos I've never felt like I was running away from anything. In fact, if you replayed the movie of my life so far, you'd find precious little evidence of me being a person who evades their responsibilities or tries to run away when things get tough. In fact, you'll find lots of evidence of a "bring it on" person who sallies out to meet things head on and is more than capable of knuckling down when the need arises.
No, it's not "running from" but "running to". To the next adventure. To more knowledge, to better and wider understanding, to broader horizons.
I wonder whether America and the rest of the new world would still be unknown to Europeans and in the Stone Age if people like Vespucci, Columbus, Cook, Scott, Polo and others had been diagnosed with some kind of "restless personality disorder" and forced to settle down to white picket fences and an entire life in the same town with the same people and the same career.
I need exploration and adventure. It's fundamental and defining part of who I am. If denied it I shrivel up, atrophize, become a corked bottle of lust for life that threatens to implode. It's not a personality flaw, it's who I am and it's valid, dammit.
