You want to feel deeply connected to your loved ones on a daily basis and often drain them because you can't just have an ordinary day.
(I too find myself defensive or easily charged when criticized and it is nice to know I can now learn from other types how to 'reserve judgement'. It is also nice to know that this trait isn't my dad's fault - his barrage of criticism in our home growing up didn't 'make me this way.' ...I can own it and change it!)
You find you can't make a list without making a side note/tangent comment.
You lose sleep over other people's problems when they have forgotten them the next day.
You watch a parade and don't just watch the parade - - you watch families gathered together, see flags and feel patriotic, giggle at the excitement in the eyes of the children, watch the pride in the faces of performers and feel that whatever the holiday is that the parade is celebrating doesn't matter - - you just think humankind needs a parade to celebrate them!
