    Default How would you type me as a child?

    While looking for some medical information today, I stumbled on some social worker evaluations and letters that provided descriptions of me as a child during my elementary years. Based on these, what would you type me as?

    "Constantly talkative to the point of getting on people's nerves"
    "Academic overachiever and struggles with behavioral skills"
    "A day-dreamer and "wandering" person"
    "Superior artistic ability"
    "A forgiving person"
    "Converses with good humor and wit"
    "Has an attitude which leads to an inability to listen to differing opinions"
    "Tendency toward high anxiety and self-blame"
    "Highly motivated student"

    Some of those are so unlike me now and others ring true even today as an adult.

    I am confused by your social worker's descriptions how can a child be too talkative and yet daydream too much.

    I was constantly daydreaming as a child and the complaint was that I was "too quiet" and withdrawn.

    I guess I was a talkative daydreamer. I dunno. I confirmed what she said with my mother and grandmother. Why would daydreaming and talking be mutually exclusive?

    Maybe it's split 50/50. None of the time is spent listening to the teacher, but then, it says highly motivated student...

    Maybe they had a set number of places on the page to fill in with traits.

    So based on those traits, how would you have typed me?

    I wouldn't want to say because I feel like those traits are all over the place and I don't know how accurate they are. The very way they contridict each other makes me distrust them for accuracy.

    Interesting. Other than the daydreaming comment, what else contradicts?

    * how were those comments derived? From observing you across x days, or in a certain setting? How familiar with the assessors with you?

    I'd not necessarily say contradict, but the rationale for the comments would be crucial, since a lot are open to intepretation.

    E.g. someone who's a dreamer but nervous could become very chatty, if he is anxious to be liked/be accepted, and struggling with expression (behavioural skills lacking).

    Have I ever seen your handwriting, Kiddo? So far the few INFJs I have seen have shown an extreme degree of guardedness in theirs, for want of a better word. I'm wondering if yours is the same?

    I honestly don't know. I didn't even know they existed until today. It looks like a combination of teacher observations, notes from counseling appointment I had with the school counselor, and interviews they had with my mother.

    Ah, that is a good point.

    My handwriting looks like chicken scratches.
