    Default My Early Childhood Trauma and Type

    I fell out of a window and broke the left side of my skull when I was two. With male IEIs so rare, do you think it is possible that my right brain was overcompensating during those developmental years, making me hyper-sensitive?

    There is no brain damage, although at the time I wasn't supposed to be able to live a normal life. As it turned out, I got pulled into the Gifted class starting in kindergarten. (Regarding that, I have read articles on myers-briggs that have posited that xNxP types are typically those children that get put in those classes).

    I have always thought of type as emerging from in born cognitive strengths. Could things be more complicated in my case?

    I don't think that accident has necessarily/probably affected anything.

    There is no brain damage
    If so...

    although at the time I wasn't supposed to be able to live a normal life
    How come not? Or did you heal at some point, and became normal (whatever that means) after a while.

    I'm not sure. I know my head was busted all over the place, but then I healed and didn't show any brain damage. I'm a pretty weird kid though...

    If you know the spesific area where the impact hit. You could study what areas of coginition the brain handles in that area (and following the vector to the opposite side of the skull). And if those doesn't seem to be affected, then there was no change from your accident.

    I have a very rare case of schizophrenia, and I have a White triangle.

    IEIs aren't particularly rare, (in my experience)

    Particularly in threads that talk about "my trauma" or related themes.
    Pre-2013 post are written with incomplete understanding.

    Male IEI's are not rare (as far as I'm concerned, at least) I've actually known more male IEI's than female. IEI's are also probably one of the most common types that you'll find on personality type forums. I don't think your accident would have had anything to do with your type, though it may have affected your learning ability or comprehension; you'd have to get that checked out I guess.

    Was there a message in this?
    I believe UDP was assosciating being IEI with being dramatic.
