    How your type does in the military is very heavily dependent on what your job and rank is. More job/unit than rank, though.

    I am way too much of an esfp prima donna to function in the military without getting into trouble constantly.
    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    Did I mention how bad I'd be in the military? I'd cry about having to get up that early in the morning and yell back at the drill sargeants because I wouldn't let them tell me what to do. I might even hit somebody. That would not be good.

    I also might get together with some others like myself and work to sabotage something about the military I thought was corrupt, and then I'd just be thrown in federal prison, so I'd realize this just in time and go AWOL instead.

    Me and the military is a BAD BAD SCENE. It's one of the worst jobs you could stick me in. You know, that, working at a factory, or like being an investment banker...probably the three worst jobs I can think of on the face of the earth.

    At least garbage men get to go outside and don't have their lives completely controlled or have to work 120 hours per week.

    Did I mention I'm terrified of violent combat?

    Yeah... I'm not very good at being broken. I would mock the instructors when they told me to do something, consistency??? Slothful! Can't I just do five now and work throughout the day to get my ten done?... Yeah. I'd get the shit jobs and then not do them.

    I think, out of possibility, the XXFPs would be the worse off.

    Definitely this. Besides the whole rules and regulations, it is possible to be any type and like/hate the military depending on the type of job the person is doing.

    Again, depending on what you signed up for (and if they let you into that job or not) you might not even see much or any combat at all. It just so happens that combat is the most widely publicized part of the military.

    I think it's interesting how many people (irl, not just here) talk about how they couldn't be in the military because they would tell their Drill Sergeants off. It's like a badge of pride or something. That's like saying you couldn't go to school because you would tell your teachers off for telling you what to do. When people do these things it's normally more of a mark of immaturity than individuality.

    I'm not picking on people in this thread, though. It just reminded me of how many times I've heard this irl.

    Oddly, i think i could handle it.
    In a hypothetical situation of course.
    It seems to me that it takes away any responsibility for oneself, kind of like packing boxes in a warehouse.
    Oh but i wouldn't actually go and fight and kill people, that would be wrong.

    - teachers don't (can't) walk up to your face and scream at you/namecall, etc

    - 6-7 hours a day, 5 days a week, with different teachers is much more tolerable than 24/7

    - Relatively MUCH more freedom/individuality in school than in the military

    - in primary/secondary school, you don't want the school calling your parents if you act up. In the military, all the consequences are upfront/within legal bounds.

    It's immaturity to think that screaming in people's faces is not an effective way to teach them or mold them?

    Most teachers don't yell in people's faces like drill sargeants.

    I guess everyone who doesn't want to get in lockstop with some violent authority figure is "immature."

    So did you ever take that test, "Would you have been a Nazi?"
