> > I simply don't like them, and that's the way it's going to stay. I'm tired of them. Especially the FSJs, they're irritating and annoying because they want things a 'certain way'. Well, they can have it. But not with me. I won't be around long enough for them to notice - lucky even if I ever get there anyway, (of which I certainly do my best *not* to be there in the first place).

> > > Trust me I feel your pain. I grew up with SJ parents (1 ISFJ and 2 ESTJ) and it is tough being an ENFP 4. They tend to be convinced of their own righteousness given the fact they have a large majority of the population that think like them. While you may feel spite towards them don't. If most people were Ns you would do the same as them I am sure. Another thing you should seriously consider is giving Ss a chance, don't overgeneralize and think that you cannot get along with any of them, some of my best friends are Ss (especially SP for me, given I am a P). There are other people out there that think exactly like you, and whatever way you want to think and live is your business, it is just a shame that society in general puts such stress on individuals that don't fit the mold. There is also the danger of getting too arrogant. Sometimes I get a little self-righteous (probably that extraverted side of me coming out a little too strong) and think I am right and my S parents are wrong, but that kind of thinking is exactly why I am so frustrated with them in the first place. Not everyone can fit in, and there are plenty of benefits to being an 'outsider' (for lack of a better word). Besides, there is nothing you can do to change it, other than get in line, I wish you luck in your quest for happiness and appreciation, I empathize completely.

I made an educated judgment based on studying multiple personality tests, my dad can exhibit a bit of arrogance too. Arrogance can come from anyone, more detailed descriptions of your father might lead you to figuring out where they fit.
