    Default Introverts and change

    I don't know that I necessarily seek out change for the sake of change, maybe if things are suuuuper borrrrring, but what I do find I enjoy is when things around me change, I kind of love to react to it, that challenge of how to respond, how to make things work given the new conditions/constraints.

    Is this an introvert thing?

    Ironically, being extremely flexible leaves one in a stale unchanging environment.

    LULZ. My ESFJ ex is much more resistent to change than I am, and I'm the one closer to being an introvert.

    Maybe this is an Se/Ne thing?

    Yeah probably. They say INFPs can be more resistent to change than ENFPs because of tertiary Si.

    I would think this has a lot more to do with P/J than anything else.

    There are 2 ways in which one can be resistant to change - active or passive. The passive type generally accepts the status quo. Si dom/aux actively (and aggressively) preserves traditional patterns.

    ENxP/INxP would be examples of passive resistance. The introverted types might be might more stubborn in holding onto familiar people, places, and things. Suspect that tertiary Si would manifest as a sentimental attachment to the past (especially childhood memories).

    ESxJ/ISxJ - these people do not change. They do not change clothing style. They do not change hairstyle. They do not change jobs. They do not change political affiliation. I am not saying that they are all polyester wearing, Republicans but they cling to the dominant traditions in which they were raised. The introverted Si-dominants will be more aggressive in preserving historically mapped symbols.

    Lol, my I have to get to know my ESFJ sister all over again every week, and she's been quite the jobhopper as well. Wrong on all points when it comes to her. :P

    As for tertiary Si in INTP's, I do have a soft spot for memories. But I have never held on to them without good reason and if change was required because I have a different persective now, there is nothing that makes me want to hold on to those memories. I would not let memories irrationaly stand in the way of future change, ever.

    Are you sure your sister is ESFJ? Sounds like ESFP.
