    Default ExxJs what's it like to be you?

    I'm looking around the forum and there's such a lack of discussion about what's it's like to be an ExxJ from an ExxJs perspective.

    What happens when you confront an obstacle?
    What motivates you?
    What calms you?
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    we're all out orchestrating a coup, i think...

    What happens when you confront an obstacle?
    obstacles are met with immediate and rapidly formed plots to get around, up, over, under, THROUGH whatever is blocking my path...

    i've had no better taskmaster than illness... because of it, i confront obstacles sometimes day to day, or if very bad, minute to minute... the obstacle can be pain that doesn't stop me from walking but prevents me from picking up something i've dropped, pain that dictates what i eat but not if i can stand outside and pet the cats, pain that drives me into the bed or out of it...

    i remember feeling low level and constant fear when it first began, not knowing what would happen next, being as confused as the reams of doctors i saw, and then this fear morphed into a hideous sort of unassailable anger that had no eyes, ears or limits because i felt my world closing in further and further until there only an imagined crack of daylight miles above my head...

    i don't take protracted defiance of my will staidly... the wildcat inside hisses and spits and shreds things, and demands to be released, and all i can do is placate her which she resents and sees through...

    patience is needed... a lot of it...


    What motivates you?
    both jekyll and hyde... perhaps the internal power struggle dictates my next move...

    mostly it's my fight against rot... i hate it... i'm a conservator of humans...

    What calms you?
    knowing that i'm understood by my loved ones and that the sincerity of my best intentions/motivations are comprehended and not derided...

    1) Think of as many ways as possible to attack it. Then bomb the hell out of it.
    2) The desire to effect change. Rage/Sense of injustice.
    3) Sleep.

    Considering you are Enneagram 3 and belong to the ENTP Castle group,
    it could generate a question mark. Lol.

    What happens when you confront an obstacle?
    Depends on how big the obstacle is. When it's small, I try to figure out a clever way around it. When it's big, I try to change my path to something more viable. I like smooth, quick sailing more than a life filled with obstacles - before attempting something I always study the situation in order to be sure that the path I've chosen is not full of obstacles.

    What motivates you?
    I like to break my limits, so to speak. Generally, everything starts from an activity I like, or deem necessary, and then I try to progress to bigger and bigger levels of said activity.

    What calms you?
    Lots of physical exercise, especially outdoors. Climbing mountains, cycling. I hate to be stuck indoors, especially when the weather is good.
