    Default Future advice for younger SLEs/ESTps

    Ok I know you aren't going to like it because I hate to be treated as a "child", but put it in perispective. I'll also be very short.

    Around 18 you'll arrive at a point in which two paths are likely to emege: booze, friends and sports and up and downs in happiness, or development of physical and mental attributes, but paying the price of an hardness of charachter that might render you less spontaneous (UNLESS in company of an INFp. In those moments you'll revert back to the child ).

    For you to decide.

    Example:

    The difference in expression on the two pics says everything.

    In my experience, that child never actually goes away for ESTps, and in fact for all types. I've found that we are all exactly the same person inside as we are when we're 13. This hardening of character happens with almost everyone at some point during adolescence. It's usually a veneer, and we often mistake it for the real McCoy. It's a safety mechanism we all use to deal with people who may see the world differently. We are all different hews, with different mindsets and values and personalities, and we'd blind each other completely unless we paint ourselves in a gray, monochrome coat - a catch-all color that's easier for mass consumption, deal with, but isn't much fun.

    Then again, I'm INFp. What do I know about ESTps?
    "How could we forget those ancient myths that stand at the beginning of all races, the myths about dragons that at the last moment are transformed into princesses? Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love."
    -- Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

    My husband chose the latter, he's not as happy as often as he was when he was 15, running around setting things on fire and doing every drug in sight, but he's healthier and safer.

    I don't know what to say about this but I feel like there is something I should say.

    WHERE DID ALL THE WORDS GO?!?!
