    I am but a dream--
    Your dream,
    A creature of your imagination...


    We're all Faery Tales; after a fashion,
    Our stories unfolding around us...
    and through us...



    In a moment you will have realized this,
    then you will banish me from your visions
    and I shall dissolve into the nothingness out of which you made me...

    I'd love to contribute to this fascinating thread. But I'll refrain for fear that it goes anywhere even a little personal and I drive everyone away because how dare I talk about my own experiences. I should know better dammit!

    Oh yeah, my parents have definitely influenced my patterns of behavior. Lucky for me though, that I caught it early. The problem was, I completely lacked alternative methods of engagement. So I made my own through trial and error, and observation.

    In my experience (but I'd like to look into it, if there are any sources supporting this), it either goes that you second the patterns your parents taught you, or you go the exact opposite way.
    Examples: ENTP 784 sx/so raised by overly strict parents, forced to study the holy scriptures since he was a child, was beaten up by his father, couldn't go anywhere without his parents' consent. As an adult, he has a reckless relationship with drugs, casual and unprotected sex, and often gets in trouble just for the sake of it, strongly atheist (although this one could be a positive thing).
    On the other hand:
    INFP, came from a disfunctional and abusive family. Since she was a child, she's learned to understand her feelings and elaborate them in order not to go crazy. Now she's studying to become a therapist.
    I don't think that it's so personal
    Anymore
    I don't think that it's irreversible
    Anymore
    Sometimes I feel like I'm a sentimental trooper.

    i do think as well that childhood patterns/ associations more often then naught cause individuals to decide between sticking to the methods of their parents (to an extreme degree) or veering off to the extreme opposite.

    i think the most productive thing one can do is learn how to function outside of these childhood influences but it can be difficult because we hear our parents voices first in our heads and if they are very loud it is hard to hear our own over theirs and even if you are able to hear your own not to have feelings of guilt / anguish / shame over thinking differently then originally taught..
