    Default Females... do you change periodically?

    This thread is not meant to shock or anything. It's just a theoretical interest.

    When my period is about to start, I get more nervous, less sure about myself, more pessimistic, more organized and less efficient (yes, both). I lose interest in a lot of things, I see teaching as a chore (while normally I look forward to almost every lesson)...

    We all know the period has an influence on our mood. Is it consistent enough to speak of a character change? For all practical purposes, you can describe me as a dark ISTP for a few days in each month. I'm not sure about the T part.
    Is it a streak of Shadow mixing up with your usual self?

    Hmm. You might be right. I certainly get more irritable and I've noticed that I tend to pay more attention to details, that is, every single little thing makes me irritated.

    I could go as far as saying that I turn into an ESFP.

    I'm pretty sure I turn INFP when I'm PMSing. Whoops...

    No.

    No.

    I'm not sure if I count, but I seem to change periodically (don't have a period), but in my case it's because I'm just that moody.

    I have four basic moods:

    ISFJ - Anal-retentive, polite, image-conscious, predictible, not wanting to make changes.
    ENTP - Silly, argumentative, playful, punny, sarcastic, arrogant.
    INTJ - Focused, pragmatic, blunt, scheming, persistent, smug.
    ISxP - Bored, inattentive, restless, goofy, focused on video games/music/computers, critical, confrontational, irritable.

    You will likely see me go through all these phases in a month. Not always, but they do seem to alternate fairly consistently. Obviously they're less pronounced than an actual type change, though.

    If I become very aware of a negative impact one of my other moods is having, the ISFJ one seems to reassert itself temporarily, though it drains me a little to do so.

    I usually get an extra anxiety attack, or the same number, but just worse. I try to wear a particular bracelet to remind me that my thinking is being influences by physiology and to take it with a grain of salt.
