This need may lead to positive outcomes, but is unhealthy. Shutting up and following someone humbly often leads to great learning.
    I absolutely do not find myself in any way desirous of being put on a pedestal. After several years as a wife, mother, and business owner I would rather be in just about any other position. Pedestals are miserably lonely, claustrophobic places and with admiration comes expectation. I cannot stand any type of restriction and a pedestal is as good as a prison as far as I'm concerned.

    On the other had, I wholeheartedly agree with that last part. As an ENTJ it is extremely difficult to relax and allow yourself to defer to the wisdom of others. We know what we want, we know how to get it, and we rarely pay attention to the often-valuable insights that others may have. This is, I think, the true achilles heel of the ENTJ. We miss an awful lot thinking we already know it all. We also tend to have rather lop-sided and unrealistic expectations of others and don't pay much (if any) attention to the human condition. It (for lack of a better word) sucks when you start to realize how much you've hurt people who barely registered on your personal radar because you were too busy conquering the world.

    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    Both activities are highly overrated, I wouldn't worry to much about overcoming either.

    Because you are a natural extrovert. I have 80s to 90s in each individual letter of INTP. Me talking to women is a disaster. Unless it is on the internet, I have the ability to be quite the charmer.

    You're probably right, but I absolutely hate large crowds and I've found that talking to the opposite sex often leads to more trouble than it's worth. Perhaps this is why I'm kind of a wobbly E. I could just as easily flit back across the great divide and be an I. As a child, I was very much the little "I". I'll always be, and have always been, an NTJ though.

    For me, being gushy/giving compliments freely/being outwardly gooey to anything not a baby or an animal. I always am amazed at people who can meet someone and in 5 minutes give that person 5 compliments... I have worked for years at thinking up more compliments and trying to say them without waiting a week and I still have lots of trouble with that. I'm totally gooey inside, but only close friends know that. It makes it really hard to flirt.

    Problems:

    *patience when patience is already exhausted
    *flares of temper (again when I'm out of energy or backed into a corner)
    *mule-ishly digging in when I'm afraid, angry, or wildly frustrated, or feel misunderstood
    *internal war lord
    *heightened distrust of the physical world (haven't had much help there)
    *getting lost in my head and never coming back down
    *allowing my positive trait of tenaciously holding on to turn into never letting go
    *snap decisions/judgments
    *letting people touch me
