    Yeah, exactly! I think hunting, you know, killing animals just for fun, is awful! But, if they are being killed for a cause, to help people out and give them the nutrients they need, it should be perfectly acceptable. But, other than that, killing animals just for thrill is just wrong and nasty, in my view anyway.

    This too...it's kind of hard having discussions with people about space travel and the continuation of the human species because, well, if humanity as a whole doesn't change their ways i think it'd be mortifying for us to spread ourselves around the universe. People think this is radical, and maybe it is, but I'm just trying to remove myself from the human perspective and look at where we fit in the big picture. Sometimes I get in "trouble" with others for things like this, this is just one example.

    I'm enjoying reading these . A lot of what others have said is similar to my experience, some has been (scarily) 100% me

    On the whole I'm very independant and solitary and my day to day activities reflect this. I do enjoy socialising but 9 times out of 10 I'm so disappointed with the result, it makes me avoid it. Socially, I'm very difficult to define which probably confuses people. I can appear cheerful, friendly and talkative one moment and then sullen, withdrawn, and silent the next. My mood is much more dependant on my level of interest in the situation than most people. If I am at ease with the company and/or the conversation I will behave like an extrovert. The presence of strangers, feeling out of place and being unstimulated and unengaged by the conversation (which happens very often) makes me rather reserved. If I am feeling bored or awkward enough I often wander off, mentally or physically, to find something to occupy me. If at a social occasion this can be: gawking at a pictures or paintings on the wall, nosily perusing the book/DVD/music collection(s), spending time hovering over the refreshments table, attempting to interfer with the music that is playing and make my own selections, or if its a family thing, playing games and talking with the kids

    I identify with what Orange Appled said about easily revealling things that are seemingly personal. I appear very open but so much of me is closed to the public. I am very controlling with what I let people see of 'the real me' - mostly they get an edited version. Some see this as bottling things up and therefore a negative thing but I do not. My emotions are so strong and intense and I always allow myself freedom to feel intently and explore the bounds of each one but this is purely an internal process and it is for me alone. I do not wish to parade my feelings or leave myself vulnerable. In fact, I feel out of control of my life if I accidently let something slip, like crying in front of others or losing my temper. It tends to shock people when I let loose in a big way because the intensity of my emotions scares them.

    Something that I have realised lately (on the Fe deficincy front) is my inablity to imitate or put on an act. My strength is in supressing and editing feelings and inclinations, not in manufacturing a desired behaviour. I am almost always keenly aware of appropriate social behaviours and what is expected of me but even if I wish to imitate this (which I so often don't, even if it is to my benefit to do so), I lack the capacity to enact it. In a way I'm at the mercy of my natural inclinations. For this reason, I'm terrible at lying, acting, job interviews, networking, formal occasions etc.

    I'm very perfectionistic about the things I do. I can't bear any mistakes or irregularities and am obsessive about stupid things like having things symmetrical or perfectly level, yet I'm incredibly messy and disorganized in general. If there are flaws in my work they bore into me until I can no longer see the positives. This makes me incredibly hard on myself and I am much more forgiving of faults in others than I am in myself. Like Rebe, I find it hard to take compliments because I often don't entirely believe them to be deserved. My failings are so present in my mind it is difficult to forget them. I suppose this sounds like I'm lacking in self esteem but I can be incredibly arrogant and a big know-it-all. This is a major fault and I am deperately attempting to correct it.

    Everything embarrasses me - even this fact is embarrassing to me . I try to hide it because its childish and pathetic but I can't help it. I tend to do and say stupid things and, being rather shy, if people tease me about it, I burn with shame. I feel embarrassment so intently that I relive it over and over again in my head, sometimes years afterwards even if it was but a small thing that no one else had a second thought about.

    I have trouble think and feeling in the moment. I always need time to think about things, let things settle to the bottom before I can properly respond. I have been publically berated for something I didn't do and I just stood there like a deer in the headlights. After about 20 minutes I become angry about it and think of all the comebacks I would have used but at the time I just took it like an idiot.

    other minor points of interest:
    - I have terrible memory
    - I'm incredibly stubborn and opinionated despite giving the appearance of being a push over
    - I'm rather impatient and easily annoyed but I make the effort to treat people with respect even if they are a pain to be around. This makes me seem nicer than I really am.
    - I have the aforementioned biting sarcastic humour.

    The really weird thing is I strongly identify with these posts. Right down to the acid tongue. Go figure.

    Same. I've sometimes been described as reclusive because I always seem to just want to stay home and do my own thing. And the thing about seeming extroverted around friends but then extremely introverted around people you don't know, often gets me into trouble. People will think that I'm a snob because I behave so bubbly and wild with my friends, but then, seemingly, ignore other people.


    I'm terrible at lying, acting, job interviews, networking, formal occasions etc
    Yess. I just don't lie because everyone can tell when I am. I tend to be too quiet to project my voice, so I'm not very good at acting either, unless I'm doing it with my friends. And, as much as I love hugs and physical affection, I just can't stand formal occaisions like weddings and things. Especially with my family. All the hugging, kissing, cheek-pinching and "oh look how old you are now!"'s. Ugh. Can't stand it.

    Ugh. Don't you hate that? This happens to me only...ALWAYS! :steam: Or I usually get into arguments with people, and then they apologize for being so rude and I'm like "Wait a second! I'm not finished! I still need to rip your skull apart!!"

    ^ Same again.

    I'm an ENFP, but it isn't really obvious to my environment. When I'm around people I dont really like, I avoid having conversations with them, but once I'm around people who I feel like they are my "type" of people, I get really loud, but not anoyingly. At least, I haven'tmet a single person who was ever bothered by me being loud. So my loudness really depends on the kind of people I am around. I used to be very popular back in elementary school, most people saw me as the "weird, expressive" kid back then. In high school I immediately became the very least popular person, probably because I couldn't stand the kind of people I met there (snobby workaholics with outdated beliefs who were just BAD at being young). So in high school I became one of the loners. It wasn't hard for me to do, but I didn't really feel comfortable with that role. At least playing a loner gave me lots of confidence. Now I know that I like myself and that I can be without others too.

    When I was younger, adults always called me a dreamer. According to them, I sometimes just stood there and dreamed. In the meantime I also loved playing with other children, at least if they didn't play any games that involved physical activities, because my body never worked really well. Because other children prefered physical games, I just had to play alone sometimes and entertain myself with my thoughts. I must admit that I always had an obsession with becoming famous and getting lots of attention. I remember that I already wanted to be on TV when I was four years old, but unfortunately my father always refused to sign me up at a casting agency. I don't know why, but I always thought I needed more and more attention. When I was 10, I started following acting classes, which I really enjoyed. I mostly enjoyed our plays at the end of the year, but I hated how I always had to play the mother or the older sister when I was younger (until 13). I liked the roles I got later, most of the time cold bitches. The last few years I've also done some plays, written by myself. There I played an obsessed stalker who ruins all of her boyfriend's relationships, a paranoid woman going crazy and a slutty trailor mom who likes wearing school girl uniforms. I decided to quit amateur acting a month or two ago, because I can't learn sccripts properly, even if I've written them myself. However, a few hours ago I just asigned for a role in a candy commercial and I really really hope I get it. I've also a movie script lying somewhere in my room that I've written a year ago. I hope I can make that movie once I'm in college, but I'm planning to just throw the script away and improvize all the dialogues because I can't remember them. My hunger for attention is never far away, but I decided that I'll just focus on something different. I have a huge imagination and if I have to believe my teachers I've got a fun and lively writing style (in Dutch), so I'm going to try to write a book and get famous with that one. Writers don't need to be super skinny if they want to maintain their fame, so that would be another reason why I would be a better writer than actor.

    According to other people I'm blessed with a great mind. I personally think I'm cursed with it, because when you're smart you have to learn more and I hate learning. My hatred for learning is caused by my laziness, my stubbornness and my ADD (it's already a miracle that I've written this much right now, but that's because I'm multitasking at the moment). Yesterday I went to a job fair and their I've signed in at two employment agencies. My mother stated that she actually couldn't imagine me working properly. To be honest: I can't imagine that either. I'm lazy, but that's only because I have different goals than I'm supposed to and because I like having fun too much. I hate routine and I love having adventures. Unfortunately the world is almost out of adventures, so I'll have to do familiar things over and over again. I hate that, because I only feel alive when I'm on a full-fledged adventure. Sometimes I do new things that I'm not familiar with (nor are most people I know) and then other people say they think it's "scary" and that I'm "brave". I don't think I'm brave at all. Okay, I dare to go abroad on my own and I think that spiders and reptiles are cute and cuddly, but there are things that I'm afraid of that other people don't find scary at all (telephones, for example).

    I really like animals and when I was little I liked almost everyone around me, except for people who never smiled. At the moment I'm actually pretty sceptic of others. I still dislike people who never smile, but I also dislike people who don't have any facial expression (I think I've always been allergic to that kind of people) and I really started disliking some other kinds of people: people who are too normal, workaholics, people who sit down under a bridge all day long yelling at people and throwing rocks at them (they actually belong to the "too normal" category), social workers without any people skills and extreme pessimists.

    I've been raised by moderate pessimists who wanted me to become a pessimist too, but somehow I grew up to be a huge optimist. Yes, lots of bad stuff has happened to me, but I still see the happy side of things (thanks to a guy who learned me not to see the bad in everything all the time). I already told you I have this unrealistic wish to be famous and I do stupid things as if they were nothing, but I'm also able to see the happy and the good stuff in bad things. I'm not afraid of death, for example. I see myself like a huge vase: I'm very fun and I somehow seem to please people, but on the other side I'm not totally irreplacable and necessary and if you only think about the practical stuff, you'd see I'm actually just a huge waste of space and money. My death would be sad, but not totally dramatic, so that's positive!

    Can't think of anything else at the moment. Maybe I'll add some stuff later.

    One thing I forgot to mention is I have rather strong Se tendencies -- I think it's my 5th function. I love partying, I'm usually the first to volunteer to do crazy shit, I love food, sex, martial arts, driving fast, music and dancing, and I'm very overindulgent. Sometimes I like to just admire the beauty of a painting, or a pretty scene, or the snow falling or whatever -- just yesterday I sat down in my backyard and just stared in wonder at the waves forming in the middle of the river, for a full 15 minutes. Most of the time I'm just immersed in my own thoughts though, and my fine motor skills kinda suck and I'm shit at noticing details, so even then I'm pretty damn sure Se isn't a higher function of mine.

    It boggles my mind thinking about commenting to each poster but I really, really enjoyed reading all the posts. I relate to a lot of it and it makes me feel warm and fuzzy on the inside knowing that I am not the only odd duck.
