    oh i'm sorry. i was being a terrible listener. i'll go back and re read the op.

    eta: what? i don't get what sentiment. you relate to the positive thinking that 7's do...or you don't? i'm confused.

    the sentiment of delving into pain, fears, emotional scars, etc':
    it conflicts with 7s because they supposedly pretend it isn't there and deny it's existence.
    it conflicts with 8s because they try to generate a facade of invulnerability and that they can't get hurt in the first place.

    I don't get it. So if a 7 is sentenced to prison he's just gonna be like "yay! This is like a 2 year summer camp"? Where is the line drawn? I don't think it's realistic to think somebody can be a positive thinker 24/7, and I doubt 7s act on all of their impulses.

    I'm guessing an average 7 would think "hmm, that's probably not a good idea, but here's something else I can do!" Or "hmm, this person doesn't like me, I'll go find someone better"

    If I were sentences to 2 years in prison, I of course, would be very upset. I do see myself trying to make the most out of the experience though. Taking advantage of the free gym, learning some valuable skills, trying to get in with some unscary and hopefully cool people. Maybe taking time to reflect. If you can't change the situation, you might as well make the best of it.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    I could see a healthy 7 going 5-ish in prison, reading books in his cell and what not.

    the rosy colored outlook doesn't last forever. what it really is, in my opinion, is a delayed response of negative emotions. to be honest, if I were going to prison, for the first day or so I would be thinking "yay! this is just like all those prison documentaries I watched! ".....but reality does eventually sink in, and which point we become jaded and disintegrate to 1 as our perfect world falls in shambles before us. at this point, we become bitch, critical of others, narcissistic and aggressive, determined to get back what we "deserve" at all costs
