    I wonder if I'm imagining things or if there really is a difference now and if so why it exists.
    I know that ExTPs are good at appearing confident when they feel like sh!t about themselves... just covering things up

    Js just seem so solid somehow

    p's are confident in their ability to improvise and j's are confident in their well devised plans...or their competence...i think.

    Maybe if the P relies on more than just their dominate function (y'know, like being holed up too much as an ISFP would do nothing for need competence by exploring with Se. Same goes for INFPs who don't get out enough). Otherwise, you're going to misjudge or do something off, and look like a fool, and the more you act that way, the more your confidence would drop.

    Indeed. Also:
    I'm unconfident whenever I'm preparing... like preparing lessons, I feel like I'm the worst teacher ever and I would never be able to explain this / make such a boring subject interesting / react well on interruptions / keep the order...
    But when I'm in class, the worries are gone and I feel like I'm the best. Would that not be typical for a P?

    I'm not at all confidant about closure. My opinion can always change as there is always more information that could completely change everything. I have confidence in my competence though
