    You don't seem like an overly nice person but that's ok.

    I've said that you like to draw attention or something to the kind, but I think it's more on issues (that I find interesting), so I would not call you narcissistic per your forum image

    I can't tell what kind of reaction from us you have enjoyed and what not so. When did your mother think you enjoyed getting people angry the last time?

She craves affection and intimacy, he's too shut off to give anything up. He's very detached in general. She's got insecure/fearful attachment; he's dismissive. The prominent theme in her life right now, I would say, is trying desperately to make her children (22, 24, 27) financially secure. She tries TOO HARD to fit in and make connections with her friends.

    A lot of the desperation to be accepted and loved that I see in her, I also see in myself. I criticize it in both of us equally hard.

    Are you spoiled? Have you led a privileged life?
    Er. Yeah, I guess I've been privileged. If you can quantify it somehow, I could give you a better answer.

    She didn't say. I've been a little sick these past 2 days and that lowers my patience and raises my hostility levels. The last time I can think I went into confrontational mode was with my brother, last night. Before that, my other brother a week ago or so, but it wasn't as prolonged or intense.

    If you don't get your way, how do you react?

    BMW or Honda?

    I pick on people I don't like or if I'm in a bad mood, tired, or hungry I can be dreadful. Sometimes I just feel like being an asshole. I can dish it out very well but often times can't take because my feelings will get in the way. Fucking stupid INFJ shit.

    Depends on what and why. I would usually argue. I wouldn't tantrum.

    BMW or Honda?
    Heh. I'm driving my dad's old car, which I was forced to trade for my older car, a 2002 Honda Accord...that my dad bought me in college. When this car is totally dead, I'll either get a hybrid or some fuel-efficient convertible. I don't want to insult the environment and I don't really give a shit about how other people judge me for my car. I don't judge them for their cars.

    I think you do a lot of (too much!) navel-gazing, but it's never come across as narcissistic to me. And sadistic? No way.


    I... suppose. Yeah!

    I think you're playful and you like to get a reaction out of people.

    You are, however, too old to be tormenting your mother and too young to be offering her your unsolicited opinion on how she conducts her personal and social life.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    It's true but it's hard to stop. When I see her, the only thing that I see is her faults and I want to pick at them. Not just to hurt her, but to understand and solve. I guess it's like popping an emotional pimple. Hard to resist.

    I really think it would be different if she carried herself with confidence. I know how fucked up that sounds, making it HER issue that I have little sympathy, but I do think it's true.

    and too young to be offering her your unsolicited opinion on how she conducts her personal and social life.
    Is this an age thing or a maturity thing? Being more on the T side, I tend to evaluate ideas based on their substance, regardless of the source.
