Any feedback from a J e7 would be welcome.
    I honestly have no clue. I'm not a terribly self aware person, but just going by my hunch I would say that I'm confindent in both

    I feel like I'm fairly confident in most situations.

    In my case, I'd say that to grow confidence, you should not care about being right or wrong. Epistemologically, we're always wrong!

    The thrill of a good heated debate is all that matters. Asking good questions is all that matters.

    It's so paradoxical. I'm almost all the time I'm confident and I always have what to say, how to act even if the situation turned out to be very unexpected and critical. But also at the same time I don't feel that stable and confident, because I know, that sometimes I don't enough efforts to make things better, although I could easily manage them. It's like never ending story: you think that you're not bad, maybe rather good, but yet - not good enough.
    Maybe I enough confident because I know what I want, I set a goal and just step by step try to reach it.

    If you are confident, is this something you had to build up to, or were you like this throughout your life?

    Do you ever encounter a plan, project, or dream that you feel you want to do, but you're incapable? If so, why? What do you feel is lacking in you that would not enable you to do this, if anything?

    When you lose confidence, how do you build it back up?

    I'd say I'm fairly confident and not unsure of myself in general. Maybe it's just this optimistic predisposition I just assume things will work out and I'll be just fine and good enough whatever I decide to do.

    I have not always been aware of this but I lose bits of my confidence when I'm doing something that does not come as easily as I thought it would... When I realize I'm really really not as naturally skilled as I thought I'd be. That's awful when it happens. I have little patience to practice and I don't like to face the fact that I'd need that practice. Usually I just come up with something else instead of dealing with that kind of negative stuff and getting better.

    So I've noticed one big difference between 6w7 and 7w6 confidence: 6w7's naturally don't have much confidence and have to go out and develop self-confidence. On the other hand, 7w6's naturally have confidence and things have to happen in life in order to lower their self-confidence. 6w7 confidence is like a glass that's empty and needs to be filled up, and 7w6 confidence is like a glass that is full and stays full unless water spills out.
