    Default Ambushed by an ExFx

    Last night I walked in to my daughters school to pick her up, and a woman I've never met snagged me from behind as I was leaving and said 'I've been told I need to meet you' and gave me a huge hug.

    She proceeded to ask me if I do 'play dates' with my daughter and while I was scrambling to figure out whose parent she was I got two more hugs, a 'what are you doing for the holidays', 'where do you work, this is where I work', 'here is my phone number' ...

    Finally I realized that she was a little boys Mom that my daughter is always playing with and talking about.

    By the time I left her, I felt like I'd known the woman for years and she acted like we'd been best friends who'd just run into each other after a long time apart.

    The whole experience weirded my INTJ arse out, and I left there going ... 'OMG is she an extrovert/feeler or what!??'

    I'm a bit envious of that ability methinks. But I'm still confused down to my core about the whole thing

    Embrace the possibilities.

    I'm surprised you were able to repel firepower of that magnitude. I would have passed out after the first hug, followed by the personal questions.

    I've had pretty much the same experience recently and now I find I am this womans friend, she just sort of co opted me into her life because her daughter plays with my little girl at school and are inseperable.

    Alot of hugging (I hate hugging lol) and strength of personality, like "OI you, you now belong to my collection".

    I am sort of envious in the sense that I wish I was so strong a personality and so forward, but I would find it exhausting if I even attempted to behave like that.

    Wouldn't really phase me.

    Of course.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    LOL. I think that's how every ExFJ looks at their circle of their collection.
