    That is probably most true of ExxJ types. Likewise I think IxxP types are more likely to internalize their unhappiness. ExxP and IxxJ types are probably somewhere in between.

    Are you serious on this? Wouldn't it be more constructive if you formulated what you could change within your own personality? We have no transpersonality surgery yet...

    Eh. I kind of think that the perceiving dominants would be unable to pin down the cause...

    interesting...
    i think in my case....everything...everybody....every situation...is changeable...everything can be improved....everything has it's good qualities and the ones that could be better...so an opinion as permanent as self dislike would never occur to me because...i view something as temporary...right now...i dislike this....in the future i will do this instead...
    does that make any sense?

    Yes.

    I think ENFPs are more apt to try and seek a solution to their problems. Unsurprisingly it usually involves their environment. I think they usually try to involve others when they have a problem, I think that involves self hate.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    Judging from my sister she's never really to overtly sad about things. It's noticeable definitely, but she tries her hardest to keep a happy spirit. She gets complacent just sitting there and contemplating about things on her own so she usually tries to involve others in boosting her spirits.

    A lot of times even when she seeks out others or tries to purge herself of some of the negative emotions and feelings she has, she still has a sad way of going about it, you can sense it in her tone and sentence composition.

    In my case I just get a little more cynical, critical, and sarcastic. I can pull of sad with a certain sense of apathy and happiness. It's a lot more steady and I can usually pull it of with humor and evasiveness, I don't usually seek out others or involve others, I'd rather contemplate it on my own.

    I'm referencing just self dislike, not depression or any other serious maladies. Just to be clear.

    i get what your saying...i think but i don't see how that has anything at all to do with self dislike...are you saying because she wants to be outside herself in those situations...that that means she dislikes herself?
    because imo...that has nothing to do with it at all
    i have always been uncomfortable with sad
    if i am sad...i'll be alone and try to sort things out but i have a strong desire to feel better and seek out other people...not to comfort really...but to distract...to make me laugh...being happy is our natural state and it's hard being away from it for too long
    that doesn't mean we dislike ourselves...i don't get that reasoning a bit.

    Yea I know what your saying. You're following the OP, I was responding more to how negative feelings (self hate) manifest not if they are more likely, or ENFPs had an inclination towards it.
