I had just parked my truck and sighed after working 10hrs only to learn before clocking out I was being reprimanded for working too hard.
The song came on; I heard the lyrics; tears came out of nowhere; and when the levee breaks, mama you gotta move.
Anyone else here sceptical to kindness given from others?
A compliment, something done for you, generosity. They make me a little uncomfortable. Feel there is some other motive behind their actions.
At work with Fe leaders it seems condescending and I tend to call them out on it.
One of the Fe managers: "Leslie you seem so tense, edgy all the time. Here I stopped by and picked up this at the store, I thought it might help. " hands over coloring book.
Me: "Thank you, but going forward if I need something, I have the means to purchase it myself. It's not necessary for you to take on that role."
As I've aged, I've learned to allow others to nurture me sometimes, especially people I have grown to trust. I didn't always do this, feeling like I always had to be the "strong one." I'm comfortable with family, coworkers or friends giving a sincere gift because they simply thought of me, or calling me up and saying "Hey, I know you've been bogged/stressed, and I want to take you out to lunch for a break" kind of thing. I find myself reciprocating in kind when I realize the same with them. This is a refreshing, almost liberating change.
However, I do watch for conditional expectations attached, and if someone is a stranger or new acquaintance offering a gift, flowery compliment, or attempting to nurture me, I find it intrusive, inappropriate, and it sends up red flags.
ENTJs, I have a question, or maybe a few. How well do you work with your hands? For example, are you skilled at taking things apart and putting them back together or maybe fixing things when they break like say installing a new screen in your phone? Also, are you artistic? do you express yourself through art or writing?
Med student here! I have been dissecting things from the age of 6. My hands are quite steady. Also, I love tinkering with computers/building computers. I am quite good at troubleshooting gadgets from the hardware side.
Artistically - I love to draw in charcoal. I have been drawing the human body from a very young age as well. In fact, I have internalized the human body and many surgical procedures by drawing them out in their glorious details. And I always had a knack for details. If I am not drawing to visualize and understand the human body better, I am drawing things surrounding the human body in details and through an almost scientific approach. Devil's in the details. That's how I express myself through art, I guess.
I write poems and essays as a way to express emotions, and it's not something I can do forced. It's more a thing that stews in my head for awhile until it flows off my fingers in verse with pen and paper. I can't seem to capture the intimacy of it on the computer, either, so the original is written in longhand. And a strange artistic hobby of mine is creating historical and fantasy costumes.
