    I’ve met about three writers in choir, which was cool. Unfortunately I’ve lost contact with all three. XP It’s cool you have a lot of writers in your choir!


    @evelyn

    It’s not. I think it would be classified as a youth community choir? There are two taught by the same director, one for age 8 through 6th grade and the other from 6th to 12th grade.

    Yep! It’s sad that you lost contact with them though. That’s always hard.

    That is hilarious!! XD


    @eden-anderson

    LOL!!! I love it!!! That is exactly the dumb sort of thing that I do!!! I can’t say why I hate ordering food, but I do, it’s just awkward… My dad always tries to help me order, otherwise it’s just horrible.


    @evelyn
    ANOTHER ENFP???? YAY!!!! Eight now, I think… Could be wrong. We have really got to meet sometime, three writing teens with the same personality… I love it!! I totally get you about feeling introverted, but knowing you’re not. XD After music camp I was wondering if I was introverted, but I’ve taken the test twice and was ENFP both times.


    @r-m-archer
    and @kari-karast

    I totally agree!! Conversation starters are the worst… And I don’t really make choir friends either… Church choir is different but any other choir? Nope.

    Tek an ohta! Tek an cala!

    I wasn’t particularly close with one of them. One of them I snail-mailed for a long time, but then one or the other of us stopped writing to the other. The other I didn’t get to know super well, but I thought she was super cool and I wish I’d been able to get to know her better. 😛 The thing for me was that that’s happened to me with almost everyone I’ve gotten to know in the past 5 years. I have a bad tendency to use them as examples of the issue and use the issue as an excuse to stay in my comfort zone and not get to know people. And then complain about not having friends. (Aren’t I a stellar social person. XD)

    I actually am friends with pretty much all the peoples in choir. Er… the girls anyway. (It’s not that big of a choir.)


    @r-m-archer

    Yikes! That’s unfortunate.

    I don’t make that many new friends unless they reach out to me first. Or someone else introduces me to them. But I keep the ones I have. In fact, I can only think of a few of my friends that I’ve lost contact with. Hmm. (Guess I’m lucky then.)

    I wish I was friends with more of the folks in my choir. There are some I’ve been in choir with for 10 years and still don’t know well. :/ I’m working on growing my relationship with a couple of them, as best I can, but it’s slow going, lol. I’ve made friends there in the past, but then they’ve left/graduated and haven’t kept in touch. Or kept in touch for a while and then stopped. I pretty much only have one choir friend, at this point, thanks to her reaching out to me and a couple other choir folks a couple years ago.

    The main obstacle with making friends at choir, for me, is that we have a little time before choir, a short break in the middle, and maybe a little time after, and that’s all the opportunity I have to get to know someone. And usually they’re already part of a conversation by the time I get to them and I don’t want to interrupt. What I’d really like would be for the choir to start having a regular game night so there’s more opportunity to get to know people, but since I can’t host it (for a number of reasons) I feel awkward suggesting it. 😛


    @kari-karast

    I actually prefer the company of guys to the company of girls most of the time, so I tend to make more of an effort to hang out with the guys at choir or camp or wherever.

    My method of making friends is either to wait until they reach out to me or to just insert myself into group conversations with them (and usually then not talk, just stand there and listen. very helpful).

    @ericawordsmith Yay! Glad I’m not the only one! *sigh of relief* And yes please let’s meet up. XD


    @r-m-archer
    Yes, it’s a youth community choir, but this one is only 6th through 8th. That would have been crazy, but oh well. 🙂

    I was in a choir in like, 4th-6th grade. There was this kid who had a crush on me and was bugging me, and I complained about him to my older brother. Indignant, my brother went and told the kid that if he didn’t leave me alone, he was going to get his face punched in.

    The funny thing about this was that my brother was wayyyyy shorter than the kid at the time, and looking back on it he says “if the kid had wanted to, he could have thrown me into the cactus.” (There were cactuses around the building.) Definitely a chihuahua situation XD

    I have so many choir stories but that one is my favorite XD

    I thought you were an ENFP…but couldn’t remember if you had told me or not. 😀

    YAY FOR ENFP’s! *high-fives* ❤

     

    I haven’t kept up with this thread, so I am pretty much lost…😉

    Random question for you ENFPs: do you guys have the habit of talking really loud? I talk so loud, my dad covers his ears at times :0

    Not that I know of. I just talk a LOT. XD.

    I actually sing in choir pretty quietly. I’ve gotten better at singing louder though. (Sometimes I can actually hear myself! XD)
