    It's time for a reality check.
    Let's take out the letters ESTJ and INFP from the quote and here is what you have:

    Under extreme stress, fatigue or illness, characteristics are:
    • withdrawing and wanting to be alone
    • having intense emotions, that may or may not be expressed
    • being very sensitive to criticism
    • attributing unrealistic negative meaning to others actions or statements


    The above could be said of any human being walking the earth.

    Thank you for your insight but just how does one's hobbies reflect on their shadow. Personally i think the above is just too ambiguous and speculative, for example -
    I planted my podded peas in the garden the other weekend along with my mustard leafs, coriander, tomato plants etc to try and calm myself . I have tried cross stitching in the past but got bored (Again) so at present i am knitting a line, hopefully it will be a scarf one day (I'm kidding myself, I'll quit). I love to travel, see new sights etc and i love stimulating my brain so i am looking at taking a course in British Sign Language (Just because) and lastly Sudoku, it is on my work phone so i play it from time to time but only to keep my brain sharp and i promise i am not competitive with myself at all .. Me trying to beat my own time, lol.

    At the end of the day, my hobbies are the things i enjoy be it to bring me some kind of inner peace, to exercise my mind or to visit beautiful sights.
    Hmmm
