    I can't. I can show plenty of Fe (even excitably sometimes), but I seem to be a jerk when it comes to festive things like that. I don't put my hand on my chest at the national anthem, i don't say grace, and i mentioned in one thread here, i hardly applaud for anything.

    (no i don't have asperger's.. it's not like that.) can anyone relate somewhat?? (doesn't have to be birthdays.. could be something else)
    Once before childern, no. I couldn't even sing to my first born but I got over my shyness and now I have no problems.

    There can be alot of emotions going on inside me that are not expressed nor do I realize that the other person would like to hear it. Probably because I'm just in the moment of the experience.

    I can and I like too finish it with "Happy Birthday to you... You look like a monkey... and you smell like one too."

    Quoting myself:

    "So, in a way, you could say "utilitarian" can also mean "non-conformist." Because sometimes, it's not even about what actually works, it's more about wanting for it to be my idea and not forced upon me by someone else. I hate being a copycat, being unoriginal, doing stuff because it's what everybody else is doing or because "that's just the way it's done." I can love other people coming up with new ideas too, but I still don't even entirely want to do it their way, I always want to put my own stamp on it, in some way create something else out of it. It's like a hunger to be my own man and follow my own ways, yes, indeed, a "rebel without a cause."

    From here.

    Nicely put.

    As for kids, I imagine things really change if you have your own. Maybe I'll get to it one day.

    Yes.

    (So I won't just quote you and agree; I'll change you to red-bold.)

    I'm assuming it's a mix of both, probably more often the latter, but how do you tell the difference? Surely you must be bothered by some things?
    in my experience...follow us around until we find someone to vent to. and it WILL happen.

    this might be just an individual thing, but i find it very easy to tap into a sort of NT thought process...this might help resolve conflict. just be careful that it doesn't bring out the worst in you and turn you into an evil bastard...mixing the above with the SP temper, in my experience, is BAD, because once you realize what you're capable of with other people...very bad things can happen, and you're probably going to enjoy doing them far too much to stop.

    I like you ISFPs generally, but I'm sorry to say I'm totally baffled as to why anyone would be porud to be irrational.
