That's a remarkable parallel. @Kayness gave me the nickname when we met because she recognized these things in me very quickly.
I think it's an Fi/Te thing. Fi is gentle, cuddly and tranquil; Te is decisive, directing, commands respect, and aggressive when need be, thus, those with strong Te and Fi tend to fall into gentle leader positions (though, not necessarily in a hierarchical sense) because people think "you're strong and dependable, but also non threatening, gentle and warm"
LSI fits me very closely, as described on the socionics wiki I had in my signature on PerC. The site appears to be down right now, but it was at socionics.ws/wiki I believe.
thinking about it a little more, I could see this
ENFP: We put the Fi in Fire
Motivation: Dark Worker
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
MTG Color: black/red
Male Archtype: King/Lover

I tend to fall into older brother/protector roles in a lot of my friendships. several female friends have referred to me as "daddy" and I crush anyone who messes with my friends. until the situation calls for me to do this though, I'd much rather be a cuddly teddy bear who just wants to play and have fun
PS: you're a socionics Beta type? perhaps you have a more flashy, aristocratic side I haven't seen lol
I always saw you as more SLI/ISTj (in the delta quadra)
It would make a lot of sense since both you and Stephen have TeFi/FiTe in the middle. I really don't feel like a mama bear, unless in very exceptional situations. not 'nuff Te.
I can't give anyone infractions anywhere, in case you hadn't heard.
Oh I didn't need to hear anything. I saw you two's faces here and then I checked PerC. It says you two are, "retired" or so it says. I personally know that there's a lot more to the story than that, and you can PM me about it if you wish.
Sorry....but then again, you've been writing them all for others who are going, so you deserve to have someone else write one for you for arriving. The limerick has now been reclaimed for Happy Times. No frownies!

“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
