    You are making me rethink that whole forced introvert thing. I've been wondering if my infp son is really an enfp in disguise. He used to talk more than anyone--talk my ear off--and then around age 8 or so he quit talking so much and started spending a lot of time alone in imaginative 'play' in his room. He gets tired playing with the neighborhood kids (mostly T boys), but when he gets around other enfp kids he's extremely animated and silly and never tires of being with them, wants to live with them, etc. We are all introverts and i hate to think I am forcing some sort of introversion on him.........Interesting concept that: Lone extravert in a family of introverts.
    I dont see anything wrong with forcing introversion as long as you dont force to much. I think my son may be E and he is learning to find ways to amuse himself when I need introvert time. He may put his headphones on in the car and sing to it or ask to go hang out with his grand father. I try to pickup if he asks to much because it means I need to try to be more E.

    I understand the confusion. My mom is either INFP or ENFP. She has that silly side, but isnt always on the surface. Last night she just randomly started doing punches and kicks for exercise. I cant help but laugh at the randomness.

    I can completely relate to that.

    Well I adapt really well. I moved to the metropolitan area when I was almost 10. Still took a bit to adjust, though. I've been kinda off for awhile, y'know? But anyways.

    No we never had chickens or any animals besides a cat and dog. But when I was like five or so our next door neighbor did have a chicken or two. I remember looking for worms with the girl and the dad throwing the chicken up so that it fluttered into a tree. Fun stuff.

    Yeah, makes sense. Of course INFPs can be really lively around people they know, too. Who knows?

    He does sound like he's more on the extroverted side, though.
