You must be confident, you're already preemptively defending your new in-groupthink ENTJs get a bad reputation because the stereotypes are often nonsense.
We can stand proud. Together.I'm so proud of you. I recently came out as an extrovert recently as well. My friends have been very supportive but they said they always knew. My family is more sceptical.
I've long suspected my preference for E, but it has been more notable over the past 12 months or so. For a start, working alone on a remote site has driven me up the wall. Rather than being my usual proactive / high energy self, I've slowly stopped giving a shit about everything. The second I'm working with others, my energy comes back and I'm most often quick to take charge of a situation and make sure shit gets done.What caused this realisation, and what specific things did you realise?
Cannot get over this. Are you always like this?she said i had some infection in one of my ears but that i was fine, just nervous.
and yeah i was extremely nervous...
...if Jung was right then i must be a ENXP. cuz that's what he believes Si to be when repressed.
You are impossible. If I think this, I cannot imagine what Cog thinks.extremely nervous? just when i jump to a plane or when i finally decide to go to doctor for analytics.
no i'm not one of those who panic on exams or apocalypse.
most of the time i'm waaaay too relaxed,
The heart and brain can synch up together if you focus enough or actually just observe both working together by the breath. (I saw it in a presentation) I am so much in my head all the time I cannot feel my heart beat at all. In rare instances when I do feel my heartbeat it is incredible.i also had a random vision of animekitty and so i told my sister: "i think i can control my heart frecuency with my mind" haha that was funny
Dunno. I occasionally like to zone out with euphoric dance music and feel all the feels. It's quite cathartic for me. Lets me go inward, and all that. As for addictions... I honestly don't really have any. Well, coffee aside.pmj, usually the inferior function leads to addictions the function is prone to. Is there anything you notice that would be suppressed Fi trying to let loose in you?
I'll have to read up on it. Probably not today.And do you get into the Te - Se loop?
Allows me to consider alternative perspectives; allows me to see what is coming down the pike. I can usually see how things are going to work out long before anybody else can. The only people who trump me at this so far have been friends who I know for sure are Ni dominant.How does your Ni work as your auxiliary?
The INTJs I know are a great deal more reflective than I am. In a working relationship, I get irritated by their lack of action (too much planning) whereas they get irritated by my need to jump in head first and refine as I go, believing my approach to be inefficient because maybe there's a better way which we haven't considered. Fuck that noise. If shit needs to be done, I get it done.side note:
Any comments on what you think INTJ's are like now that you are ENTJ.
I dunno what any of that could mean. Just get friendly with someone who really knows their shit and have them type you, or something. Architect and Auburn did a fantastic job of typing me back in 2012. I was under the assumption that I was some kind of Fe snowflake. After sending them a video, the both of them were all "LOLNO. ENTJ. GTFO".TheManByond said I must be Ni because I am extremely subjective and (Location: your heart) is opposite what Fe would be (Fi). so INTJ or ISFP. I cannot be ISFP because Se is suppressed in me. Must be INTJ. I was always inventing things as a kid. My thoughts were different from everyone else. I have over 1,200 pages of my ideas in 3 suitcases by my bed from age 19 and below. I see significance almost everywhere.
lolyes.ENTJ Te-Se loop: An ENTJ in a Te-Se loop becomes power hunger, grabbing at anything that can bolster their image or control without considering the sensibility behind these actions, obsessing over ways to bolster this image through material goods and sensory experiences. They become overly concerned with “doing” all of the time, unable to let themselves stop to take a break. They become forceful, aggressive, insistent upon taking action whether or not it hurts those around them.
hugs are available between 5 and noon.Shit.
What if INFP?
Huh, interesting. And when you first joined the forum, you thought you were INTP, is that right? Quite a move, though I guess both are T-dominant.I've long suspected my preference for E, but it has been more notable over the past 12 months or so. For a start, working alone on a remote site has driven me up the wall. Rather than being my usual proactive / high energy self, I've slowly stopped giving a shit about everything. The second I'm working with others, my energy comes back and I'm most often quick to take charge of a situation and make sure shit gets done.
Then there's the fact that I get depressed AF when the wife / kids go to Spain during the holidays. Having an empty, quiet home? It's ok for a few hours here and there, but it soon becomes crippling.
My introverted friends tend to love staying indoors. They will happily remain in their own company for days at a time, ensuring that absolutely nothing interrupts them whilst they recharge.
"Oh, I have some free time. Let's book that shit right up with lots of social engagements and travel!"
If I'm indoors alone for more than a few hours, I start going crazy.
Depression and general knackerdness (kids will do that to you) obfuscated this otherwise blatantly clear preference for some time, because I was just on my knees with exhaustion. Now things are getting a little easier though, my energy is coming back. Fact is, I'm starting to realise that I'm actually more extroverted than my wife.
Plus, looking back at my childhood reveals a lot. I was always a bolshy little twat. Taking charge / ordering people about. Serious and confident.
IDK. I think sometimes we perceive ourselves so very incorrectly. The more I speak to people, the more I realise that I actually fit the stereotypes quite well. I simply lost my spark for a while because life happens, etc.
In work ATM so I'm just shooting from the hip (something I do a lot; I'm far more reactive than introspective - another thing worth bearing in mind) so I hope that'll suffice for now.
[EDIT] With the exception of two friends, everybody thinks I'm an extrovert - from my wife to people I have worked with for 7+ years. Colleagues in particular find the thought of me being an introvert to be quite amusing.
Ah, the laugh test. I've had that from both ends. Is your immediate family mainly introverted or extroverted? Perhaps that influences your expression or sense of self, along with the nightmare of child-rearing. Or maybe you relate to ambiversion. Or maybe you're not PmjPmj at all, but an alter the original Pmj dreamt up in a fit of insecurity about introversion. "Now there are TWO of me! I'll never be a forum-visiting loner again!"PmjPmj said:find the thought of me being an introvert to be quite amusing
No, I've never believed myself to be TiNe.Huh, interesting. And when you first joined the forum, you thought you were INTP, is that right? Quite a move, though I guess both are T-dominant.
I'm not extroverted in the social sense unless it's a professional setting and I'm working within a team put together to achieve a specific outcome. I'm happiest when my focus is outward, though. Being in my head for too long (or being alone with myself) drains me. Just having the 'buzz' of other people around me is energising - even if I'm not directly interacting with them in a meaningful way.About your extroversion - is it more to do with other people, or with doing things? Or perhaps they're tied together as you implied - can't do things without other people around, but also can't not do things without getting irritated?
A bit of both, heavy on the Si. I'm an only child and we moved around a lot when I was a kid, so I quickly learned to be ok with spending quite a bit of time alone.Is your immediate family mainly introverted or extroverted?
I did once take a colleague calling me a "Callous bastard" as a compliment. But many are my feels.?
entj's don't have feelings to hurt
No, we had them ruffly same time.So... is this legitimately news to nobody? Am I the only one having a revelation here?
Not to me, heh. Suspected for awhile based on your posting style since that terrible mafia game from long ago; and I never even knew Auburn typed you as ENTJ. That's kind of funny because people aren't usually in agreement with typing. Then again, introverts seem to mask or personify themselves, but you seem pretty honest and forthright and I think that makes typing a bit clearer. So who knows.So... is this legitimately news to nobody? Am I the only one having a revelation here?
Your comment further melted my already gooey insides.In case it's unclear btw, Im only being a cunt to you because I think you are a cool guy and I know you can handle it

Or tomorrow you realize you were INTJ all along.
