While growing up did any of you guys experience great teachers that were either ENFPs or other NF dreamers? You see, statistically 2/3rds of teachers are those rule-orientated SJs...and the other third is almost all NFs with a couple SP teachers sprinkled in for stuff like mechanics or shop class.
While I can't pinpoint the following teacher's type, I can be sure they were NFs at least...
1.) My former English 8-12 teacher (small, private school) was fantastic. Master's educated with a thirst for life and drama (real drama, as in plays, lol). She'd insist that everything we do was creative: papers, tests, reports, acting out dramas in class...Everything was based on opinions and questions involving "How do you FEEL about ________?"
She later became the principle after I graduated. I brought her chocolates when she retired (she was elderly) and she admitted she marked me differently than many other students, ignoring my grammar mistakes (as she said I made so many I'd get C's in everything) yet focusing on my ideas. I appreciated that.
2.) My history/World religions teacher was a very expressive and creative xNFP. He loved moderating class discussions, and as long as they were interesting and important (not even on topic!) he'd let them go all class, let us explore and discuss and enjoy. Almost like a philosopher's cafe. He loved to incorporate the arts into his classes, making even (dull, to some people) history come alive with enacting dramas, watching movies, and even once having to make a puppet show.
I owe a lot of my confidence and esteem to those teachers who instead of chastising me for not being all rule-orientated let me EXPLORE myself and learning.
