    Default 8 Intensity Causing Problems

    I'm a bottled up coke that's been shaken until dangerous. I have too much energy. I need to expend it. I NEED TO YELL AT PEOPLE. I NEED TO BLAST PENDULUM.

    I go to work and all these motherfuckers are like, "we like to share our time with the children and learn with them" while I'm like, "I Push kids as hard as they can while still enjoying what they do!"

    I like to harass people and tell them they're a fucking coke mongrel pen licker with their ass WEDGED IN A FURNACE.

    I CAN'T YELL EVER. I'M SURROUNDED BY QUIET PEOPLE ALL THE TIME. WHY IS EVERYONE SO FUCKING QUIET? I FEEL LIKE I'M IN A FUCKING CAGE ALL THE TIME.

    WHY DO I FEEL LIKE A BULLY WHEN I GET ENTHUSIASTIC? WHY DO PEOPLE DO WHAT I SAY AND ACT SUBMISSIVE? IT MAKES ME FEEL LIKE I'M THEIR FUCKING OVERLORD.

    I'M NOT YOUR BOSS, I'M TRYING TO BE YOUR FRIEND

    HYYTYAOIF:AIFHIPOHEWQINC:OWQMCLKDOA:IWD PBOAIHS POV@!))!(*_)!@*))(V@!)*(#*)U

    Is there a psychological reason for this so I can better understand why I'm like this and setup my life in a way that is indicative of this? or am I just FUCKED?

    I'm 25 years old and have no money. I work as a gymnastics instructor, where I THOUGHT my intensity would be great for the job, but even then I'm the loudest person in the room while they play classical music and practically whisper to each other. I feel like I'd be "destroying the calm atmosphere" which is what I do everywhere I fucking go and everyone has to remind me that. I hate Si. ISFP Girlfriend turns me into a quiet sheep when I'm around her. I love her to death but I'm scared I'll just make her shit herself or something.

    Any advice? Can anyone relate?

    YES

    unfortunately I'm broke and have no money or credibility to get a job that lets me storm around skyscrapers and shoot my employees.

    Time to build up credibility, whether getting a or another degree or doing something that requires more activity than gymnastics. Have you considered being some form of boot camp personal trainer?

    Its crossed my mind but I never really seriously considered it. I'm not sure how that works, or if I'd need to set up my own workout routine and diet etc.

    Good idea btw

    Another possibility is martial arts, since it combines all that's gymnastics, into something that also includes the mind. It might help you with discipline and control.

    I have a black belt and once upon a time taught Tae Kwon Do, but I don't think the forms transfer over between schools.

    Consider this type:

    "Choy Li Fut is the most effective system that I've seen for fighting more than one person. [It] is one of the most difficult styles to attack and defend against. Choy Li Fut is the only style [of kung fu] that traveled to Thailand to fight the Thai boxers and hadn't lost." –Bruce Lee

    I kind of find it hard to understand that this sort of mindset is associated with sensors or Si, I've read that this is the quality which is associated with detection and characters like Sherlock Holmes.

    In folk typology its associated, mainly, firstly, by intuitives I've got to say, with chaotic or "spontaneous" personalities and when the discussion is framed that way then chaotic or "spontaneous" individuals associate themselves with the folkish description.

    Now someone is bound to tell me the interaction of the Sensing function with feeling or perception is what accounts for it and I wont argue with that because I guess I dont know enough about how those things could interact, I dont embrace the definitions, or entirely know them for that matter, of people into NT, SJ, SP etc.

    They seem pretty stereotypical to begin with, lending themselves right away to folkish instincts or analysis.
