    I liked your post!!! But I wanted to comment on the above line...

    I think SFPs are actually gypsies and NFPs are the hippies, at heart. Hehe...

    When I think of the word "hippie" I think of someone who uses recreational drugs, has a lot of causal sex because just because there's nothing on TV and flakes on all their responsiblities and drives around in an ugly VW bus, wearing godawful tyedyed shirts and uses the noble issues of evinronmentalism and pacifism as a front to make themselves seem more interesting.

    This describes neither me nor my ISFP friend.

    I honestly think one of my friends is an ISFP.

    Your viewpoint on hippies is not, *ahem*, colored or biased in anyway, right?

    I think "hippie" can just mean "free spirit, with a philosophical bent."

    "Gypsy," on the other hand, is what I am. *giggle* I always wanted to live with a clan of gypsies, sleep in a caravan, play violin under the stars, and warm my hands by the fire right before I bite into some beyond delicious food... Plus, I just am a gypsy.

    Look at the word "hippie"--- they acted like "free spirits" because it was hip to do so. And they abused free thought by confusing it with freedom from respect for themselves and others and created a negative image of free thought that every other free thinker since has had to deal with while they escaped into the next hip movement and became yuppies. That's the cold, hard truth.

    And there are people in their 50s who likely think they are INFP because they say "Well I was a free spirit in my 20s but now I know better and you will too." They use a lot of SJ type talk now, preaching against Fi type thinking and they make me sick.

    Yeah, both Hippie and Emo represent social, cult movements, fads. An IFP could be a participant in either, just as any other type could be, has nothing to do with being a free thinker or having a Feeling preference. These two modes, Hippie and Emo are just acts, surface constructs to fit into a particular group.

    From what I understand, they prefer to be called the Rom.

    My mom is 57 and she was basically a hippie... and she is INFJ, NOT SJ. There were many nuances amidst the "hippie" blanket. She was inspired by people she felt inspired by and the things they said and the music, too. I think there is a pathetic "hippie" side to hippies... especially the people who glommed onto the movement in the middle-end of it. But there were those for whom it meant something. Not all of them lacked self-respect. They were not all the same.

    I am not getting the nomad connection then. I admit to not having studied the subject deeply but I thought the Cheerokee were more farmers who cultivated squash and corn and lived in towns with log houses than nomads. Really having more in common with the Hopi than the Apaches.

    Sure, but those people would have been the same people without the hippie movement. The "hippie movement" as a social fad was just a coincidence for them.

    OH it's just from the "Rom" article that says Cherokee means the same thing as the Romanian "Rom"... which is what gypsies apparently prefer to be called. I am not saying Cherokees really were gypsy-like at all. I'm just playing. :P
