    If people were more satisfied with their lives, they might not be on an internet forum? That's just a thought.

    So, why people have problems with low self-esteem?
    I usually have a pretty strong self-image. It's only when I fail that I start to doubt myself. Most of this comes from my father, who I could never please as a child, no matter how good I was at anything. "99% in chemistry? Why didn't you get 100%?!!" Sometimes, it leads to me seeking approval from others as some sort of surrogate.

    I can't believe I'm posting this.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Generalization without a certain explanation does not count.

    Hypothesizing that several specific instances may prove to be representative of more than the specific examples is, indeed, hypothesizing.

    ^ (http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...tml#post322174) You should have said that was merely your observation and you couldn't explain it.

    You probably shouldn't have bothered with your semantical critique of my argument, if you want to get TECHNICAL.

    ^I didn't mean to bother anyone. When people associate something with J-ness or P-ness or anything else, I like to know how they did it.

    Observation, as stated. Do you disagree with the part of the hypothesis that claims Js get more done on average?

    My thoughts exactly. Materialism is a sure-fire way to blow your ego out of the water.

    Actually simple:
    -people pleasing tendencies/peacemaking/self-pitying etc..
    -oversensitivity to criticism
    - family environment
    - school environment
    - sensitivity to environment
    - stressful and demanding environment
    now let's go into explaining the 1st one.It's way too long.
    Sometimes I feel like I'm "on Mercury"-
