Ladies and gentlemen, we have royalty in our midst.
Perhaps because of the thread I posted explaining the system, I counted far more votes this month than any other. And let's put it this way: the person who got the least votes this month could have won this thing almost any other month. Still, our winner got more than twice as many votes as the runner up, and the most votes I've seen for a MOTM since I took over counting votes the month Scruffy got it.
April's Member of the Month is an ENFP, and is one of the most likeable human beings I've ever interacted with. If you know him as the guy with the dog avatar, you don't know him anymore, because now he's the guy with the lion sucking its thumb avatar. So here he is, the man who can best be described with the word, "boom."

Yes! I use it to understand others better which I have done..... I also have thicker skin. Do you prefer to associate yourself with certain types, and why?
Nope! I find that their is great things about ALL types so I associate with them all so I can be around their greatness! How did you initially find your way to PersonalityCafe?

The people.... the threads.... the fact that I found others who are so much like me. I have made life-long friendships with some members. I have a profound joy of getting to know myself better. Why did you choose "The King of Dreams" as your username?

Because I'm ALWAYS dreaming whether it's day or night. My imagination is very vivid and wild.... I like it like that
What do you like most about PersonalityCafe?
The ENFP forum... I see others who are like me and I learn more about myself.
The members. I learn more from them.... They have been awesome teachers... From the ESTJ's to the INFP's and every type in between. I'm so appreciative of them. What do you dislike most about PersonalityCafe?

The insults by some members... The disrespect. But I'm happy that the mod's keep it clean and nice
Do you have any advice for the community of PersonalityCafe?
To be myself.... Always.
Keep improving yourself. Upgrade yourself but don't change who you are. Always try to push out the bad qualities and keep the good ones.... Never settle for "that's just the way I am". If you could have any super power, what would it be?
Telekinetic power. What do you know now that you wish you'd known five years ago?
What do you believe is your greatest accomplishment at this point?
That it's okay if others don't like me. It's okay as long as the important people in my life like me.
I have a family that loves me unconditionally. I volunteer to help others learn the bible and have been doing it for 13+ years. Tell us something about yourself that we don't already know.
What is next for you? What are your plans and goals for the future?
I give public talks/speeches regularly. I'm currently on kidney dialysis.
To get a kidney transplant and get a job at something that I enjoy doing. Give us your parting words.
Love... Love others that do not show love to you... Always think of others before you act... think of what will help them, make them happy. Take time to rest and take things in. Recognize that not everything will go according to plan, so just take a deep breath and adapt, change course or improvise.. but DON"T SETTLE. Family and friends and spiritual persuits (if you're religious) should be the highest priority.... Everything else will fall into place if you put hard work into it. . . . . . . I guess that's it.
