    Weak I know, but that is the system as it is, I think.

    None it would seem.
    What would define the types? Our strengths come with weaknesses.
    I think the point is to recognize your natural talents (dictated in part by type), and strive to stretch them. What's the point if you don't?

    That's how I see it too. But by accepting the talents as true you also accept the weakness.

    True. But accepting the weakness doesn't mean you have to be paralyzed by it.


    I... suppose. Yeah!

    Results are everything.
    If you need to you can build your weak areas through skills and knowledge. The pay off wouldn't be as good as working on your talents.


    I agree with what you said in the OP.

    well as an enfp...i'd appreciate you not noticing my weaknesses because i prefer not to think of them.

    Not true. Anecdotal completely, but... I was an abysmal public speaker. I ran off stage crying nearly every time. Worked really, really hard at it. Ended up taking awards in moot court and am now teaching. So something clearly NOT a preference and NOT a talent ended up being a valuable skill after lots of work.

    Not only that, overcoming that difficulty gave me a lot more confidence. That was the best thing I got out of it - turning something I was terrible at and afraid of into something I'm reasonably good at.


    I... suppose. Yeah!
