 " WHEN TYPE MEETS TYPE"

 THE WONDER OF DIVERSITY:
What happens when differing personalities encounter each other in relationship?
 


 

"A soul friend is someone with whom we can share our greatest joys and deepest fears,
 confess our worst sins and most persistent faults, clarify our highest hopes and perhaps
                     most unarticulated dreams."


                                               Edward C. Sillner

 

Our Shadow Side

The Shadow side we push beneath
 Is yearning to see light;
We tamp it down and hide it,
 We think itís not quite right.

So when we meet that someone
 Who has that ďtypeĒ therein,
We shun and think, "inferior"
 And want no part of  him.

But when we let that part of us
 Come through to light of day,
We will find the other guy
 Is pretty much okay.

For after all,  God made us
 In the image of His Son;
ALL the parts are beautiful -
 HE LIVES IN EVERYONE.

My Twin and I

My sister [INFP] is my [ESTJ] opposite -
We donít see eye to eye;
She thinks a thing is cruel,
I think itís justified.

She says we had a "fight",
"Discussion" is my word -
And when we give opinions,
Neither argument is heard!

She mulls a thing forever -
In me, itís soon forgot;
Diverse in all our ways,
WE'VE LEARNED TO LAUGH A LOT!

My Sis

My sister [INFP] is my opposite [ESTJ]
 In temperament and style.
While I do lots of laughing,
 She has a gentle smile.

My sister, when sheís angry,
 Clams up and doesnít speak.
But I do lots of yelling
 And tend to stomp my feet!

Itís really quite amazing
 How well we get along...
I guess when love predominates,
 There is no right or wrong!
