Oh, the child small.wonder was pretty much that. Call me strange but I've often referred to my little self as "the child who soared" because I was just so effortless-- but perhaps all children are in their own way.
I was actually pretty extroverted (though I've wondered if it was just Sx/So?), a definite ring leader and instigator but also very emotionally intuitive. I was always fiercely protective of the bullied or injured, very pure-hearted but also quite quippy and hot headed. I remember being maybe 6 or 7 at my Dad's company picnic, and him playing on my flippant nature (which I guess he though was charming) by calling me up on the stage while he was giving a speech. I had a water gun and squirted him in the face. I must have thought it was funny then, but the fact that I was encouraged to behave that way kind of grieves me now.
I was a giant tomboy who devoted a lot of time to ballet and my idea of starting a WNFL (this is legit in my 4th grade yearbook). When I had crushes on boys I would tease and bully them at recess. Though I wouldn't have guessed it of her then, my best childhood friend grew into a 7w8 ESTP-- we did war over the dominance/leadership of our friendship pretty often (which I find interesting).
4th grade was the first time that I realized I wasn't "popular", though I'm not sure it bothered me much-- weirdly, I actually get an image in my mind whenever I think about it: the stretch of hallway that my classroom was in, and the knowledge of wearing stirrup leggings and my navy blue USA sweatshirt. Funny the things we remember.
I did have a very strong sense of morality as a kid, wanting to pay attention in school and help others. Still, my respect for authority was very much dependent on the individual in question, and there were times that I was outright defiant (but always with a cause).
Big ideas were frequently my thing and I was usually leading my friends in some sort of shenanigans: teaching them choreography for a "show" I thought we should put on, leading nature walks through the conservancy around my house, or hatching hair brained schemes that really made little sense.
Strong willed, compassionate, imaginative, earnest, intensely and shamelessly expressive, and probably a little overbearing.
