    There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.

    Yeah I guess that's true. Just a very unhealthy form of ENFP.

    So doing something like this is like setting up the conditions in which your Ne can become engaged?

    sure it's not the only way but i need to be around new environments or new people or new ideas...i need to have new information coming in to make my brain start going off in overdrive happy enthusiastic mode.

    When a teen I would do this sort of fixation a lot and feel real bad. I would then try and identify what exactly it was that was bothering me-why did I feel bad? Then come up with a specific plan to address.

    If it is short term reading a good book will help, or anything to help remove the stressful thoughts. Long term-reflecting on what is important to accomplish in the next three months-not today. Then plan for that.

    My job has been very hard the last year. In January I made a very clear choice to emotionally detach. I still try and work hard but I wont work 60 weeks and get up at 3 am everyday to try and duct tape issues together. I let stuff fall through the cracks at times understanding the system is broken.

    It's real hard as i know those problems will end up on someone else's back and I used to feel very guilty, but I couldnt handle the emo burden anymore.

    This thread has really affected me, in a way no other threads have. I was feeling really down about it this morning, about this Si hiding I've been doing for years. And it's so true- what others say about how quickly things change once your Ne is engaged- I become so on, so right- awed, inspired, energetic, capable. Me.

    It also got me thinking about Te/Ti. And Fi. The thinking side of me does not feel healthy or natural, just like the Si. It seems like something I think I'm supposed to be, not what I really am. But it's this role I've been playing for years and years. My dad's an ISTJ, and I can just feel myself, often, being him- like his costume is draped over me and I'm exercising the same restraint, obsessing over things I really, in all honesty, don't care about. But it's hiding. It's playing it safe.

    I have gone through so much personality assessing/evaluating ever since I had a bipolar episode three years ago. It's like I'm inspecting the bomb fragments to get an accurate picture of the whole- when if I were to just look at the whole, it would probably make a lot more sense to me. (Shitty metaphor. Sorry...)

    Oh, I am feeling like I am in a seriously weird place right now...
