I have been typed as a 5w6 so/sx 5-2-8, ENTP. I find it disconcerting that while my "core" traits seem very "fivish," I don't seem to fit the profile in some significant ways.
I am comfortable being social to the point where I don't mind drawing attention to myself, even to the point where I have acted on stage, given speeches, and I even taught public school for two years. I am an absolute curiosity/knowledge junkie, I have done a lot of "trial-and-error" to determine which approaches work best, and my social interactions have gotten far less awkward as I have gotten older. I do detach my thoughts from my feelings, and after a social interaction, I do like to spend time alone contemplating them. I also have ADHD combined-type, impulsive/hyperactive. I guess I have always felt like a "square peg" no matter what I have done. I have a tremendous mind for facts, dates, and trivia, and my reading comprehension skills were at a college level by the time I was in seventh grade. I am equally comfortable in the middle of a crowd, or sitting quietly reading a book by myself. If there is one thing that I will not abide it is a bully. If I think a person is being a bully, I will stand up to them no matter what the personal consequences are. Also, I do not "hoard" knowledge, I am happy to share what I know if I think it will help. I am the proverbial "jack of all trades, master of none."
I guess I'm just wondering if anyone has any ideas as to whether it is my ADHD that causes me to be so difficult to read, or is there something I am overlooking? Please share your ideas. Thanks.
