    Exclamation The Worst You = The Real You?

    Do you agree with this? That your very worst side, the behaviors that you usually keep under control (your id in Freudian speak?) are the real you.

    I'd say yes because it's our natural instincts that we only learn to overcome. For example, if someone deep down, during their absolute worst stress and loss of control, acts like an unhealthy ESFP, they're really ESFP.

    In other words, your "stress type" is your true type - even if you hate being that way under enormous stress and would never do so under normal circumstances.

    Personally speaking, it's why I type myself as an ESFP - 99% of the time, I act more ESTP/ENTJ. But once in a blue blue moon, I become temporarily emo for no reason. I assume that's my intrinsic desire, even though I can't stand being that way. Usually I don't have much emo to suppress, so it's disturbing when it crops up out of nowhere. But I assume that must be the "real" unearthed me.

    Your thoughts on this?

    That's what Professor Yukawa told me. I'm like "here are my issues. Here's what the therapist told me I am." And he's basically like, excellent you're definitely ESFP, not ENFP like I previously considered for you.

    Your stress type is your inferior function, which would be Ni if you're ESFP.

    My argument is that stress type is your dominant function - your uncensored id that never sees the light of day , that you never even knew you had until it erupted out of nowhere.

    So, I'm ISFP.

    Nooooo.

    I'd say you were ExTJ if your Fi never sees the light of day.

    If I value realism and new experiences and the simple aesthetic pleasures of life above all else, but when I'm batshit crazy I start thinking people are talking about me behind my back, misinterpret their motives, and become extremely anxious and possibly act out, or even become violent, I'm probably an ESFP.

    If you're normally exceedingly rational and detached but act like an emo FREAK every once and a while, and can't control it, almost like a child, you're probably ExTJ.

    It was what I was getting at in my thread a while back, but I worded it incorrectly.

    But instead, what I thought was that some people could actually be acting like their stressed type... and that their real type was being muffled because it wasn't working.

    It is like a kid wanting to go out and play, but doesn't want to go out to play because mommy said not to. So the kid learns to muffle his desires and not go.

    Extraverted Sensing - ES(T) and ES(F)

    paranoid, superstitious, anxious, fearful of the unknown, fear of the occult, overly adverse to religion, jealousy, delusional, suspicious of ill-intentions, violent, aggressive, detachment from reality

    Extreme Neurosis:
    Schizotypal Personality Disorder
    Anxiety Disorder


    Introverted Feeling - IF(N) and IF(S)

    critical of the world, critical of everyone, constantly blames others, constantly views everyone as evil, fakes evidence, prone to making up problems where none exists, overly obsessed with seeking faults and errors (especially in authority figures), prone to excessively twisting people's positive words into negative ones

    Extreme Neurosis:
    Borderline Personality Disorder



    Extraverted Thinking - ET(S) and ET(N)

    violent, sociopathic, aggressive, dishonest, excessive jealousy, vengeful, vindictive, overly prideful, lacks sense of guilt, lacks sense of empathy, lacks sense of principles, constantly blames others, the ends justifies the means, no sense of right and wrong (logically or ethically)

    Extreme Neurosis:
    Dissocial Personality Disorder
    Narcissistic Personality Disorder

    The above would compare ESxPs to IxFPs and ExTJs

    I was thinking along the lines that if you thought that the ESFP you is the real you, the other you (how you have been acting to get through things) could of been INTJ.

    I definitely don't act like an INTJ. Not even remotely. My normal, healthy, happy self is more ESTP.

    Your happiest, healthiest self is your type. It's the most comfortable place for you. Hence preferences.

    Your "crazy" or your "wish I was" or "gotta be" is the inferior.
