I'm resurrecting this thread because it's now a year later, and I'm still going through this endless loop!!! It's driving me crazy. I want the pieces to fit so badly, but they keep breaking apart and trying to fit elsewhere.
Here's an example:
Subject -- Body Shape
"Ah, I have narrow shoulders and broad hips, so I am a 'pear'. But wait, I'm not small busted, so I can't be a 'pear'. Maybe I'm an 'hourglass'. Yeah, that sort of works. But no, I have narrow shoulders and broad hips, so I am a 'pear'. But..."
This goes on and on and on and on. And it goes for personality typing, face shape, body shape, etc. -- anything in which I'm trying to put things into a category. I want so desperately for them to fit, and they do for a brief moment, but then they do not. It drives me crazy.
Any other ideas on which unhealthy function/dichotomy is at play here?
