    Actually, buddha teaches a lot about boundaries. The importance of having them, as well as the importance of not having them. It's really quite complicated if you start analyzing it. But fun.

    More to the point, the "I see what your problem is." was a joke in response to your uninterested reply to my buddha post. Making it fairly obvious you don't really care much for learning about boundaries to really bother with them. As if it was a huge issue for you, you would've likely saw it fit to inquire further.

    Unless you think I'm always full of crap on this site, which you're entitled to think. But then it doesn't matter much what I say anyhow.

    Oh, you made it sound like "Yeah, right.". :p

    Anyhow, as far as Buddha goes, the best discovery is self-discovery.

    Hey, I'm a P too.

    Buddhism is an ironic sensation. It's full of win to read about. But learning is not understanding.

    It's enough to keep you busy thinking for several lifetimes to come. (For Ti+Ne anyways, Ne+Ti isn't that different. :P )

    I've read that, at least for ENTJs as far as i can recall, when we're excited we can seem pissed off. Many times have I been asked to calm down when excited. I also have ADHD, which might have something to do with it. Another annoying experience I've had more than once in when being quiet and just thinking people asking me if I'm ok.

    Often. Sometimes justified, sometimes not.

    I've had an ESFP/ESTP tell me to calm down. sheer hilarity, because she talks in a much louder tone and tends to over-react.

    I'm an abuser of the "calm down" line. I don't know what it is. When people seem worked up something deep inside of me gets unsettled and it's the only way I know how to deal with it, even if I know that sometimes the person isn't really all that worked up. ENTJ's seem so passionate about everything to me. Sometimes the seeming obsession about little things makes my brain want to explode. I know it's not right to tell anyone to "Relax", or "Calm down" or "Take deep breaths" but in my experience it's actually been successful. Not that it really actually calms the person down, but then they don't want to keep getting worked up after being told something like that so then they just bottle it all up. It's just like the most effective winning statement in this case.

    Not really sure how you'd stop someone from saying that.
