    Default Let me rephrase my moved thread.......MBTI has screwed up my mentality.

    I used to think that hard work could get me anywhere and even to a place above naturally talented people but then i did this personality test. Didn't look too deep into and then some of the dots connected and the picture looked a lot like me. Now all do is sit back being frustrated with life knowing i can't do something about it and my whole mentality is fucked with me always trying to prove to myself i am the type i wanna be.

    But damn, i am just complaining cuz i'm a hopeless fuck that can't do shit...always have and always been.

    this not being able to do anything about it is in your head, its not something that is MBTI. the whole point of MBTI(if you use it on personal development) is that it guides you to right direction..

    Sounds like you had a pretty bad mentality to begin with.

    Hard work is a good thing. But, at some point, hard work by itself will burn you out. There has to be passion and significance behind your hard work, inspiring the hard work, getting you up out of bed every morning to go and do it again. Without those things, hard work ends up falling flat on its face eventually. Like, what's the point if you can't be naturally motivated and inspired to do that thing? If what you are doing is excruciating and not enjoyable and you don't feel engaged in the work, then it's not what you should be doing. It's not what you should be "working hard at". You have to move in the direction of your passions, of your natural motivators, the things that get your juices flowing. And you have to move away from the boring things that make you want to fall asleep. Sometimes it takes time to make the transition, but you have to move in that direction in order to expect to ever get there.
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    This sounds like a pretty helpless mentality to me. You could either ignore the MBTI type, or use it to help you grow- that's probably the best use of the system.

    you're using personality crap as a crutch. there's nothing wrong with you!

    you are a whole, wonderful, limitless person. you are full of potential to become anything you want to be and do anything you want to do. people overcome others with more natural talents every single day because they are more dedicated and because they are passionate. choose who you want to be and become that person. a made-up thing like the mbti is not going to stop you from that. i love to hear about non-traditional pairings of mbti, enneatype, and job or hobbies. an INFP 8w9 who runs a humanitarian organization. an ISTJ 6w7 who is a professional skydiving instructor. an ENTJ 2w3 who builds orphanages in nepal. an ESFJ 5w4 linguistic anthropologist who records dying languages. there are all kinds of crazy wonderful people out there. you're one of them. if you don't like who you are... rotate on another axis.

    if you need help seeing this, please talk to a therapist, who can help set your thoughts straight. you don't have to feel imprisoned in your own mind.
