im sorry if i was being insensitive if you see it as a downfall, i was just thinking of a polite way to start thread, i find it amazing as iam someone who lets emotions cloud her judgement which stops me being able to see clearly, im sure there are good and bad things about being able to detach yourself.What is so amazing about being emotionally detached? Childhood had its ups and downs.
My childhood was great; I enjoyed it very much. I was a happy little girl with many elder siblings to play with and to learn from. I was spoiled far too much, though I grew out of liking the attention and it quickly became unwanted. Both unfortunately as well as fortunately, I had a tendency to be irritable, stubborn and independence minded; when that didn't stop me from having copious amounts of fun, I felt cheerfully free to be quite friendly, imaginative and playful- typically, not in that order. Playing outside meant that an adventure, story or game would always be created out of seemingly nothing or anything I could acquire, as the manner of play could evolve with anyone who was courageous enough to join in with their ideas and energy.conformità said:fives what was your childhood like??
You must be thinking of someone else.im fascinated by the type 5,, i find it amazing how you can be so emotionally detached,, how did you arrive here? :happy:
Mmm...I understand that, especially how you learned not to express your emotions or speak your mind. And your mom's habit of taking out her stress on you...I don't think of my own mother as a bad person, either, you know? But it is hard.Everything went well until age 6. We left my dad since he was abusive to my mom, alcohol/drug addict. ( i found that out way later though) Then my mom would take out her stress, etc. on us, sort of like treat us as her husband. Since she would claim things to us, even though we weren't even responsible for it. Oh, and I'm the youngest of two sisters and a brother. I learned not to express my emotions, or speak my mind. It always ended in a bad situation when i did. That shaped me up for the better though, in my opinion. This makes my mom sound like a bad woman, but she's not. As for my dad, I've never seen him again..the last thing i heard was that he went to jail. :shocked:
Combo-breaker... just as an aside, every person in this thread that is labelled as Type 5 is also a Myers-Briggs IN, which perhaps isn't so surprising.
