Most of the time I have not enough patience for cooking for myself, but I do it - and do it very well when I have (female) visitors.
BTW - how come your brother is ESTP and you are INFJ??? I thought most of these things was genetic - or is it more about conditioning????
I don't know. It's weird, isn't it? We've always been like mirrored versions of each other. I suspect it's a small part genetic and likely somewhat random even though there seem to be trends (basic predispositions), and partly environmental influences.
You see, while we have different approaches to life, my brother and I often share the same conclusions to issues. We have similar interests and similar values, because we were raised by the same people in similar conditions. But our methods of thinking and ways of interacting with the world are very different.
"I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."
Hmm. regarding relationships, as they have been cross nationality to me, have not bothered me as we both knew from the beginning they it would most likely only last the semester. So no hard feelings, new girls will arrive next semester
food - I sniff it for sure. Then I try it. Then I ask for more. So far I have not disliked anything I have been served outside my own country. I even liked haggis in Scotland. But most of all, I love the food of the Balkans.
ESTP it seems.
There's an international supermarket near me, the yugo food is good stuff.
It could be environmental too. I doubt two P parents are gonna raise their children in an oppressive, dictatorial environment and produce little Js.
I'm some form of ETP. My parents are INFJ and ISxJ with very strong I tendencies. When I was a young teenager, I used to test consistently as an ISTJ; at that point I was fully convinced that I was an organized, overachieving model citizen and that this flakiness thing was just a teenage phase. It took me years to realize I don't give a tiny rat's ass about organization and I don't wanna spend the rest of my life locked up alone in a cave.
My Dad = ESTJ
Me = ESTP
Brother = INTJ
Mother = INFP
funny.. I feel my parents are the same. My mom is shy and sensitive, lazy, always putting of work, sitting watching tv, always worried about purse snatchers, fears confrontation, wile my dad is also talking to random people, but very dedicated to few interests - his cars and his workshop.
