    Ummm.... she might think your pointy ears are a little strange, and any references to space-time will totally freak her out. This could make for an interesting bail out scenario if you just can't take any more of her visits.
    Ahh, thanks. And thanks to everyone else for the advice.

    I was actually going to send her a card-but we're out of stamps.

    If your cousin is an ESFP - just be straight out, she'll get over it. If it's an ESFJ, be careful - they can get real touchy. They are the easiest of types to offend. But obviously, it depends on how close they feel to you that matters. If they think of you as someone close, you better come up with something good.

    I'm very abrasive and upfront and that is the ONLY type that lying is the first thing to enter my mind. So basically you have to do a bunch of little lies the entire time, or simply accept offending your cousin early and getting it over with.

    This has been helpful. I have a relative who I've always thought was an ESFP, but based on what I'm reading here I think she might be an ESFJ - touchy, easily offended, etc. I think I need to change my tactics.
