    Thank you! I actually had more anxiety about not being able to breathe than I did about actual flames, interestingly enough.

    I've realized my body took the brunt of my stress, and currently I am feeling unwell. Being home again, safe and comfortable, has helped a lot.

    LSE-shrewd, haha, I like it. My husband is good about coming up with systems and processes that make my goals or wants easier to accomplish. Like when we first moved into our place, he did most of the arranging and storing of things, and as I went about my daily life I would encounter difficulties or decide I wanted something to work differently, and I learned to tell him and he would rearrange things to make it work better for me. And whenever our small fridge gets full and I need to put leftovers away or just when I need something packed well, I often ask him to do it because somehow he makes it all fit just right, haha.

    Good idea. You need something that is both a safety tool and usable. I know some people who completely disconnect their smoke alarms because they get tired of fighting it to turn it off when they don't need it.

    You remind me a little of me IEE sister, taking on a lot. She's a physicians assistant and when the pandemic really got going she actually had her hours cut in half. So she applied for a less popular job in her same workplace and now she's working full time again, two jobs at half time each. So she's very busy again! She's had to learn over the years how to be still and rest, but I think she does overall favor a faster pace than I do.

He said "No. If you had used brick, yes, but this tile has a glass glaze and can crack." I didn't know that was a factor; I can only research so much! But, for a bonus he moved it in an inch for me and that made me happy.
    Good job researching and adapting to the constraints!

    @Minde, those pictures are STUNNING! I loved them. What a pleasure to look at. I am so glad you can still have that beauty.

    I love how you captured the same scene with so many different views! I just love it.

    Nature is so healing, isn't it? I am really enjoying this weather and the fall colors, finally changing belatedly this year. My (new) commute is most busy highway, something I don't like, until I get off the picturesque wealthy rural town my school is in. But much of the highway, between the towns we race by, is nestled in low mountains (making it the windiest fast-moving highway I have ever been on) and there are so many beautiful views of them. (Except for the blight of the interruption of major power lines, and worse, all those ominous cell towers they put up during covid lockdown).

    Also I drove across CT and back last weekend, in a rented pickup, and some of the rural roads were so stunning, with the turning trees and the roads a winding ribbon covered by big old trees of every type and color. Through one small town, I guess because it was a major through-road, a big group of Trump supporters from young to old were out, roadside at a traffic light, with their signs, and the beautiful fall day. Really salt-of-the-earth looking folk, with nice faces of good character. I was glad to see them.

    Lately at home this one tree keeps catching my eye and delighting me. It is an old maple my husband taps every year, and I keep wondering if it is going to make it, as it always loses something in a storm. I want it to stay. It has a particularly lovely shape. It sits on the end of our driveway and frames our house from a certain view, turning our simple home (we have enhanced it a bit; I have pics here somewhere of our work) into something really special in its mature foliage frame. Today I just gasped when I saw it is going flame red in places, with still some green on it. I don't recall it turning red before. The maple next to it is turning orange. It's also old but not a sugar maple. The just-beginning-to-set sun was behind it and the red leaves were glowing like lights against the sapphire sky. I hope, hope, hope this is not a last hurrah and it will hold on some more years.

    Anyway, it is lovely to have a view to love. I am so glad you can enjoy that with your new husband. He sounds great, and you sound happy.

    One of the endearing qualities of an ESTJ is how they get choked up emotionally when they recall someone they love but how they control their emotions in public. Makes me want to kiss them

    I posted this in chat, but want to preserve it for posterity: I'm thankful today to have an ESTj as my bookkeeper who can handle disputes with bureaucratic departments on my behalf. I'd have caved awhile back.

    Put up the Christmas tree, this year has been going by strangely. Was also listening to Christmas music while putting it up with my family. Last Christmas is like it was yesterday and wondering what 2020 would bring. Now we have the answer to that question. The Christmas spirit is there but it is going to be a lot different this year. I can find a lot of good that came with the year, even if there were major changes that were not so good.

    Each of the different ornaments has a different story to tell. My little two-and-a-half year old niece is new to the whole thing and keeps on taking ornaments off and playing with them. She doesn't quite understand that they are decorations, and that is the fun part of being little on Christmas. The last two Christmases, I had some ambivalence towards th holiday but this year, not so much. It flew by, but there are other parts that went by slowly.

    It's easy to be stupid, especially when you aren't accustomed to how smart someone else can be.
    Posts I wrote in the past contain less nuance.

    What is it with Fi dominants and "taking a break"?


    "I think we should take a break for a while. Things are just too _____ right now"

    ESIs and EIIs have done this, and it baffles me at how it's supposed to do anything for the relationship. To me, it's a form of wussing out, and it's something about Fi dominants that I don't like (yes, other types/people do it, too).

    I think it's very selfish, and it's this weird assumption and judgment call on their part that everything will remain the same relationally while they go and have time alone to sit and think and ponder and 'recuperate'.


    Maybe it's a good thing I'm not with one of them. It's nice how IEEs (or at least one of them is ) are a lot less "mood based", in the sense that, obviously like everyone else there are other circumstances that influence someone's feelings, but, at least in my situation, feelings can change or disappear, a lot faster than with Fi dominants. ((I'm speaking within the context of an already established relationship, too - not the awkwardness of first getting to know someone). Also, when I say "feelings", I don't mean "how someone feels about me relationally", which is awesome. I can be unnerved when I think that changes too much. But it's nice when 'moods', particularly negative ones, can change more easily.

    Fi dominants seem to enjoy being upset for extended periods of time
    That's not a 'factual remark', it's just how it comes off more so.

    It's kind of liberating, really, to not be so encumbered by the feelings of "How is this going to affect someone's mood?" - and maybe that's an influence of IEE preferring Fe polr in someone.
    I know this is old but to me, it means things are getting too hectic and I need space and time to fix it out. You should learn to understand that sometimes we need to be alone and be a hermit for gods know how long.

    Hugs for you, too, in that it must be hard being around LSE like that; Maybe one day LSE will feel that way about you, and you could actually give them a kiss back instead of only daydreaming about how much the feel about other people.


    that said, yeah.

    being task oriented in the public sphere is the easiest thing to do.

    I am working with three INFJ at work currently. Two of them are dating each other and the other one I'm not sure about. Turns out the other female INFJ is having relationship troubles and she confided in me about the abuse that she's experiencing and the financial hardship. It's nice having another INFJ friend.

    I have never tried to actively learn a new language, although over the years I have picked up enough spanish to understand it in writing as long as its basic vocab. I definitely do not understand it when spoken lol.

    I have grown up speaking three languages, one by each of my parents ("mothertongue") and third from kindergarten onwards and so it still feels like I have known it from birth since I don't remember not knowing it.

    Because of my love for Montreal, Canada, I am going to (at some point in the next few years) work on learning French. The pronunciation seems the most difficult; otherwise pretty similar to spanish.

    it's a time where apathy is rampant and the world will incline you to not have much meaning.

    it doesn't matter though; that which needs building will still need to be built
    Posts I wrote in the past contain less nuance.
    If you're in this forum to learn something, be careful. Lots of misplaced toxicity.

    Poldark is...disappointing
    or perhaps just not my taste

    (also a small little “complaint” but I wish sx storylines employed actors or at least characters that can be boundless sx. Otherwise it gets a little dry).

    Oh, joy!!! I found an old dear friend from a dear place - annual family vacations in a beautiful place precious to my heart, a place I have been longing for lately. We used to write letters (that old paper, pen, envelope, stamp thing) to keep in touch between summers, and my brothers and I would so rejoice to see her and her sister when we arrived for our annual vacation. We all would enthusiastically nature-adventure together. Hike. Swim. Canoe. Rowing. Sunfish sailing. Later years, water skiing. Build in the sand or create with clay we dug out from under the sand in the shallows of water. Blueberry picking. Explore an abandoned house split open by lightening. Identify birds, animals and insects (because those girls were really good at that!). Play Rook (cards) at a picnic table. Ping pong in the rec hall. Fireworks and campfires and softball. I remember us crowding around her as she enthusiastically read aloud from Mad Magazine, getting even me interested in Star Trek [my brothers thing, not mine, but I watched it with them] as we busted up over Mad's spoof of it. She was many things - smart (very smart), optimistic, fun, and a super-wise navigator of an unusual family issue, that popped up only very occasionally, always to my brothers and my surprise. She rather took charge of that in the way that she efficiently doused the drama. She was a good big sis.

    I could never find her before, and I really tried. But last night I took another jab at it, not expecting success. And, lo! Wow! jackpot! Found her by a different route! Through her relations (who were also hard to find, which is why I gave up every other time I tried. And I tried many times, and the failure always discouraged me. ) She is using her full first name that I never used. It's a less-usual variation of her given name; I'd tried the common one only (I always knew and wrote to her by nickname). And since her last name is not wildly unusual, I could not ever find it. So what a discovery last night! I stayed up and read her whole FB. She is still herself! Still beautiful, still the fun optimist, and her profession, which she is successful in - just perfect for an academic intellectual, especially an imaginative, enthusiastic one. So glad for her! Still loves, loves nature and beautiful places, and when she includes a nature photo, one that also moves me, that was not taken by her, she is fastidious to give credit*).. Now in a far part of the country from me and from the beautiful place we know each other from. But surrounded by a similar type of beauty, so I am so happy for her. Still a cat person! I even loved her recipes. Not a lot of those, but good ones, and so "her". So glad her husband seems a good man, and that they seem so happy and so comfortable together. They have an interesting side activity/semi-profession they are passionate about and do together. I am so glad! So happy.

    I don't know her type. But my first guess is LSE. Sometimes that first guess is right for me. It would make sense, as we were active together and LSE is my activity partner. Also my eldest brother (LSE) was avid friends with this eldest sister, and there were, for a brief time, appearances of possible romantic interest, but that never developed at all. Wrong timing perhaps, or maybe the sisterliness of the Identical connection didn't "take" for romance. Between me and my brothers, 3 of us 4 are Delta, so she would be a good fit in our Delta-dom group. I believe her younger sis was another Quadra. (She now has a great nature- related professional position).

    Also a great-fun close friend in high school was LSE. So possibly she is that also. I seem to have a theme in fast friends: LSE, EII, and SEI.
    *[also my high school LSE friend later put on big productions and would go to great lengths to credit single every person who played even the very smallest part in making it happen. So, feeling confirmed my rediscovered friend is LSE, too!]

    So I will contact her very soon. I'm still in the glow of happily processing the "catching up" with her by FB. I have little to offer in return by FB, as I don't trust it's privacy and have very little, mostly old stuff, in it. And that is all masked. (Yet, an old SLE boyfriend was sleuth enough to find me by it. Wasn't easy!)
