    You could just try telling yourself "I trust myself."

    I have recently started to do this...with everything. And I'm telling you...it's like the best thing I've ever done for myself. I immediately feel better. It doesn't fix the problem, but it is a check for my anxiety. It almost always goes away immediately after I tell myself this. The problem becomes more objective and managable for me as well.
    Well my coping mechanism is similar: What I do is to just do something so many times, that I just go gut-center with it and just do it on pure memorized reactions and reflexes. That way it becomes so ingrained in me, that I don't think about it. Thinking about it, is what really screws me over.

    2)Next, most hypnotists don't hypnotize you in the classic way (i.e. the swinging pendulum). Instead it's more like they teach you a series of meditations, mind direction techniques, and present moment exercises. I will say they my hypnotist helped me way more then any psychologist or psychiatrist ever did.

    Yea. I have to do that too. I am good at new things cause I like change, and I pick up quickly. But the downside, is that I need so much fucking context cause I'm a perfectionist, and don't want to get it wrong. And that's when I ask questions about the little details, which most people (ALL SENSORS, PRACTICALLY) view as "common sense." (And for the record, I don't believe in common sense...there is no such thing...it's bullshit, cause it's all relative.)

    So when ppl think you're "a dumbass" as you put it...is it them thinking it's lack of common sense? Cause for me as an intuitive...I start from scratch when learning something new. I don't like to compare present context with prior context until I know I fully understand the whole overall picture of what I'm learning. Which like I said...takes quite a bit of context. lol

    @Urarienev ahahah my little brother (ISTP) and boyfriend (ISFJ) are all about some "common sense" too... IMO it's an annoying blend of S-Ti... Clearly observing what's present plus perceiving that everything works on logical background mechanisms...

    I also agree about just letting it go and letting your gut take over. That definitely yields the best results every time. Which maybe is why we say that 6 integrates to 9....

    Yes, I know what you mean. Also, for me, I often try to get private practice time in before being watched or tested. People ask me how I know what to do - the truth is the amount of time I spend privately reading and learning and practicing.

    On a personal note, I want to go into some branch of medicine, and getting it right when I eventually practice whatever discipline I go into is very concerning to me. It's one thing to screw up in your own life but treating others is a consideration of a much higher magnitude. It scares me a bit, but I try to remind myself that all practitioners face that challenge and I am going to try to trust myself to choose the specialty that I am best at so that I can provide the best level of care. I think there are a lot of reasons a 6 would make a good practitioner so I try to remind myself of those...

    Relatedly - I am so sorry disability is so hard to get. I do know why, though - there are SO many people who try to sweet talk their way into false coverage. My dad (a psychiatrist) comes home with stories about fakers trying to wheedle their way into disability all the time. It's really sad for the people who actually need disability that it requires such a stringent process, but otherwise our government funds would be even more run dry (ie we'd owe China even more) by people who just don't want to work...

    well, it's better than N+Ti (good grief do they ever make me want to shoot someone with all their pedantic babble and over complication of questions which are actually quite easy to answer)

    Yes I experience the same things. I also used to have PTSD like symptoms, and social anxiety. People think it's hilarious and I hate that. I don't see what's funny about me shaking with anxiety.

    Yea, I get the "common sense" vibe more from Se users, like even from ISFP's. The common sense they're are talking about is just past experience though....which is not something I care to remember as much as they do. I don't actually get it from ISFJ's cause the ones I've met need lots of context too. Usually more than me, it's to the point that I can't tell if they actually are grasping what I'm teaching to them or not lol. But I do see it with Ti too. I think it's a more silent judgment with them though.

    And integration to 9, does make sense for that. (I have a hard time integrating to 9 in general though )

I constantly believe that I will mess things up, if I haven't done them before and this is a major problem for me. It is because of this, people often perceive me as a total dumb ass on school projects and at work. Also, even with things that I clearly am competent in, I also tend to still question myself, and don't tend to show much confidence in my abilities. It is because of this, that people often view me as a dumb ass who will clearly fuck things up, and someone whom is an ignoramus. Do the other phobic 6w7's have this problem?

    You folks might like this thread.
    yea, I'm the same setup, phobic 6w7 sp/sx and most definitely have the same issues. I don't think people think I'm dumb about stuff but the dualities really destroy my confidence sometimes.. it's really hard to make decisions/ stand for one thing... Even sometimes if the task or the facts or whatever it is is very straight forward you start to question a lot of stuff.... It makes you look like "you don't know what you're doing" to some of the really bold types... 8's and such. pfft. whatever, 8's.. Thats what I say... I've convinced myself that this is a really good way to go about things... There's fewer assumptions.... I mean if everyone were like this then there would be a problem.... But, for the most part, this thinking style is important in many areas!

    I do notice I get a lot of people asking me questions in work and school settings, moreso than they would ask someone else. I think people like the way I weight all these things back and forth in my head/ (and out loud!!) .. Meanwhile I feel like I clearly don't know anything or what i'm talking about. or maybe they just ask because I'm being nice... I don't know.
