I wish people would refrain from using the word "shadow" to describe the unconscious.
There is no proof that what is unconscious is negative.
And there certainly is no proof that what is conscious is positive.
That is just common sense.
Something a lot of people are lacking in this forum.
Frankly, I have said for years if you want to see someone's true colors,
they will always be found in the unconscious.
It's that part of us that takes off running to save someone whose life is in jeopardy,
while others stand by with their thumb up their ass.
What we do unconsciously is an "auto-pilot" response.
We do not stop to think.
That doesn't have to be a negative thing.
It's in life's difficult moments, that we find our true selves.
We sure as hell don't find our true selves by using MBTI.
Many people answer those questions as they WISH themselves to be,
rather than how they really are.
