ENFP shopping

After Little Fishes this morning, I popped into the local supermarket to buy some milk.
15 minutes later I unpacked my basket at home to reveal...




So, I've just whizzed out for some milk. Other personality types, simply rejoice, OK!

[Edit:
Of course, I then discovered that I'd lost my purse, necessitating a glorious attempt at tidying the study in case it was lurking beneath the deep-litter which covers the floor. In fact, I turned out to have left it in the shop,- after the first visit.
One way and another, by the time we made it to Evening Prayer I was pretty well incapable of coherent speech, succumbed to uncontrollable giggles and virtually had to be carried out...not that FabVicar helped,- he has a very good sense of ironic timing, which never fails to hit the spot.
All this on the day when Marcella forgot the tune to "Twinkle, twinkle little star". Perhaps we've all been suffering from an (ostensibly) adult version of the condition that hits primary schools on stormy days. I think I'd best postpone attempts to explain the Spiritual Direction course to another time...

Your story was of comfort and some amusement to my ENFP daughter although it didn't work as an arguement against her demanding ritalin from the NHS as she just feels that you should ask for some too.

I've had those days ... but for me it's usually my glasses! I once left them in a fast food place 200 miles from home ...

Have you ever noticed how hard it is to find your glasses when you NEED your glasses to see?

I think we are way too much alike. I can't tell you how many times I've unpacked a bag of groceries only to realize that I'd forgotten to buy the one absolutely essential thing I had stopped for in the first place.

Its even worse when you are INTP - we don't have the self-confidence to admit it - but get really angry with yourself because according to MB you are not supposed to do that kind of thing!!
