    Question are you impulsive?

    over time I've heard many adjectives used to describe NFs fundamentally, and one I hear at a somewhat lower frequency than others (creative, spontaneous, kind-hearted, etc.) is impulsive
    it always sticks out for me though
    I've known that I was impulsive since about 8th or 9th grade, and honestly it might just be a personal case, but it seems to become a more prominent character trait throughout the years
    now I'm still a teenager technically, so this might be a phase, but I just biked home from a friend's house about 6 miles away at 4 am, and it got me thinking
    would anyone else describe themsel(f)(ves) as impulsive? I've always been interested in how others control themselves and their impulses. discuss!

    In my youth I was a bit impulsive but now as an adult I am more cautious. Maybe it has something to do with the development of Si for INFPs in adulthood.

    Impulsive in what way though? Usually that's more of an sp thing I would think if you're thinking what I'm thinking.

    idk I think I might mean more in a spontaneous way. I'm like impulsive and cautious at the same time, because I worry so much but I also want to be crazy and spontaneous sometimes

    It could be an age thing. Not that all teenagers or early 20-something year olds are always spontaneous and impulsive beings, but it does taper off after a while and then you mellow out as you grow older.

    Yes
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    I am very impulsive.... It usually goes like, "Ahhh, what the hell?"
    Then the repercussions come in...... maybe it wasn't... NOPE, I already knew, dammit.

    But, when I piss people off, sometimes I didn't realize it, or sometimes I didn't read all the "details". oopsa
    Maybe that's why raw honesty is my love language...
    Correct me if I'm wrong! I didn't know!
    Hmm, freedom of expression is what I crave.
