I've been looking at various type descriptions and quickly decided on 6 because I tend to be a worrywart. I troubleshoot and rely on a lot of "what if" scenarios.
I'm the kind of guy who too often figures out how to have other people like me and I act a certain way to do it.. which is often the "back-slapping" and not-too arrogant 6w7. I can often be comically anxious inside like Woody Allen. I often don't show my anxiety to others but the anxiety is real and is inside me. I think a lot about my future and can vacillate between pessimism and optimism. I easily recognize when something bad is going to happen in the future but I often find solutions to those problems and after thinking things through, I become reasonably confident that my plan will work.
I've been wondering about Type 3 though. I am social but I am not aggressive. But I inadvertently place a strong emphasis on image, I've been in situations before when the majority of people seemed to despise me. I place a strong emphasis on material and personal success. If I'm a 3 I'd likely be a SP type. I am goal-oriented but will often make sacrifices in my goals to gain the approval of others. The only thing is despite the fact I like achievement, I'm not particularly ambitious academically mostly because academics have come easy to me all before college. However, as the work has gotten harder, I've become more studious.
I've also considered 5 because I'm naturally intellectual and can get absorbed into a hobby/video game/book for hours without paying attention to anything surrounding me. It makes me an effective studier whenever I actually stop being lazy and do it.
I tend to see myself as sometimes too sensitive while most of my peers see me as too insensitive. I'm not very good at expressing my emotions and even at my worst, I can be very calm when explaining troubling issues to others.
So what do you guys think?
