Former MPDB

I'm a 35 year old woman, and I realized in the past year that I have been a MPDG. I am also an ENFP. Quite honestly, when I look back on my previous relationships I get disgusted. I absolutely HATE being a stereotype.

As an INFP, it took me longer than you to realize I didn't have to be a perpetually self-torturing neurotic. Here's to personal growth.

I've heard of this before. As an ENFP, I often feel compelled to keep my own darkness at bay not to be a constant joy to others but in order to cope with an ugly past, disappointments and other upsets in life. I've also spent a good bit of my life struggling with depression so I didn't have to cope too much with the MPDG thing except when I was much younger. It is unsettling...like people wanting to put fireflies in jars...they'll suffocate and their light will go out. That's what it feels like to me.
I agree about Audrey Hepburn's character in BAT. Also the female lead in what the female lead said in Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind...that she's just a fucked up girl trying to find her way. I don't exactly know--I never watched the movie but I thought the quote on Wiki was interesting and so true.

And while you were having Breakfast With Pandora (complete with milk from Amalthea, no doubt!), I was out swimming with Ran.

Nice post!

Drae, Thanks. I hope 2014 is a good year for you and that the best things about being an ENFP absolutely shine out authentically. ENFPs are incredible folks who deserve to be able to be themselves.

I am an ENFP woman and 100% MPDG. I do not view this label negatively in any way.

DWF

Hey, Cass. Thanks for reading. If you are 100% MPDG, do you have a lucky brooding guy to whom you are 100% devoted and want to bring out of his shell? Would love to hear your take.
