I recently posted the same thread in the ENFJ section and realized that all of us seem to have very similar tendencies when it comes to viewing relics of the past.
Another member made a comment that it just might be an xNFx thing. I wanna see if there are subtle differences - or that all NF's may have the exact same kind of sentimentality or not. Purely subjectively of course.
Below is my original text:
Intuitively, my guess is that there might be very subtle differences b/w INFJ's and ENFJ's ... and I'm trying to pick up on those. Thanks ...This is something that I've struggled with all of my life --- everytime I go through a life altering change [and I've gone through many], I have the urge to do something "one last time" ... almost everything I do seems to have an extreme significance for me and depending on how that "last" time goes, I either walk away from it feeling refreshed, or with a longing for it. Though if things don't go according to plan or expectation, I'm usually able to move on relatively quickly.
Right now, I'm leaving my home country probably for good this time so I have a weird urge to try everything at least once ... even something as insignificant as showering in my bath-tub .. or walking down the stairs to the car ... very insignificant things hold extreme importance to me [but not to the point of superstition] Of course ... meeting some special people one last time is of the utmost importance - though I'm able to fight the urge this time as I don't have many meaningful relationships to be sentimental about.
Can other ENFJ's relate to this? Is it even related to MBTI? The reason why I ask this is because I can't seem to find other people to share my enthusiasm for the "one last time" experience quite the way I do.
