    MBTI is about preferences, so if you prefer to be something then that is what you are under this system. If you determine that you are a type, are you saying that you now prefer to be something else or are you simply saying I need to work on a certain function?

    When I am home and at peace, I would not want to be anything other than what I am. It's comfortable. If I have to turn on the charm in public or do something that calls for utilization of another function (more importantly a function that is foreign to me) then I don't wish to be a type that uses that dominant function. I realize that I can achieve only so much, and as Lenore Thomson reminds us, we cannot be proficient in using our weaker functions therefore it's futile to work on them since at best our development will appear infantile.
    I don't really want to be anything other than what I am. In answer to your question, I need to work on developing certain functions. I don't believe there is any black or white answer to anything including types, I think there are many shades of grey to be found. I may want to be more outspoken, but that does not mean I want to be brash and loud.

    ENTJ, so that I can be a bad-ass motherf**ker with the confidence to intimidate others so it hurts!

    (And so the ladies will be more attracted to me.)

    EDIT: So no one wants to be an ISTJ?

    There have been many times in my life when I would have gladly been INTP instead of INFP. I would have liked to be able to detach from emotion and focus on thinking. Feeling has always been distracting to my thought, it takes up my time and energy and puts me into times of being frozen into a sort of limbo. That's very frustrating and irritating. However the older I get the more I see I cannot be anything other than what I am, I have to make peace with the way I am. It does not feel like a "preference" to me but rather my basic nature, basic hardwiring.

    Default What type do you WISH you were?

    I wish I had more 'N' than I do. Sometimes I think I'd rather be extroverted as well... I'm gonna represent the I's though and stick with it.

    I'm happy being exactly as I am typewise almost all of the time!

    occasionally being a bit more Jish would be useful, but that's about it! I've worked with getting in touch with my N and F sides to the point where I can function around different people with more ease!

    I don't know. I usually answer ESFJ to this question. But I suppose every type has their issues.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    It just seems like it'd be "easier" to be extroverted than introverted. I could be wrong, though.

    Otherwise, I'm fine with ISTP.
