    Yup, I wear a mask in group settings or when I'm around people I don't know but have to talk to. It matches closely the ESTP personality type: outgoing, fast talking, get it done jock. It's sort of my shadow, but I'm able to tap into the good instead of the bad qualities of it.

    I project dominant Te, suppress my Ni and ta da, the mask slips on. I can't think past the surface of things when I do it though, suppressing Ni handcuffs me. If I do it at a meeting I have to take notes or I don't remember what I said when I was masked. I exist only in the moment.

    I got just a tad bit tingly when you mentioned handcuffs.

    Every single person who knows me, knows a different me. But does this even count as a mask? Because in esence, these are just random recollections of my self that come naturally.

    I don't give them names or cues nor do I activelly think about them. The switch between the many Is is completely automatic.

    Maybe all human interaction is contextual. In other words, we probably should be different people to say our wives or children than we are at work, for example. This need not be necessarily unusual and may be the rule.

    Keep the essence of who you are the same yet modulate the interface for the appropriate context in order to best reach the other in optimal relationship. Approach them with a receptive and familiar interface so that they have the psychic space to meet you in relationship.

    It's called dissociation.

    When I'm with people, I wear my mask of sanity.
    When I get back home, I take it off.
