    What conditions create the Idealist temperament?

    Have any pet theories?

    Or, thinking about yourself, what in your upbringing shaped the motivations and priorities you have?

    It comes from another dimension, a sick and twisted one...

    Well it helps that both of my parents are NF's.

    And you know I think the fact that I was isolated as a kid amplified some of my NF-y characteristics. And the fact that I grew up around intuitives

    In conclusion...ramble...ramble...ramble

    It comes from being one with the cosmos! ^^

    I think that aesthetics, the feeling of being different, existential and philosophical thinking spur idealism.

    hmmm.....

    I think for me, it comes from seeing the big picture, and everyone's sides within it.

    If I had the chance to rule the world, I idealistically believe that I could run it with love, try and encourage others to do the same, thus have less conflict and more harmony...

    ridiculously idealistic indeed ;)
