There's absolutely nothing positive about being Limbic (on the Big 5, aka "Emotional Stability" or lack thereof). Is it possible to fix it?
Here are the problematic symptoms - and how you can tell if you're limbic, too:
- Get stressed out sometimes (I don't show it IRL, but I get migraine headaches from it sometimes)
- Sometimes irritable (sometimes I turn into the worst "I" possible - wishing there was some kind of aerial spray to exterminate all the fucking humans in crowds, who get in my way when I'm in a rush)
- Get overly immersed in beautiful music/art. I don't like being affected by external things, but beautiful music puts me in an other-world trance, and there have been times when, alone, I nearly got teary eyed - just because it resonated too strongly.
- Constantly questioning own competence.
Additionally, it seems as though everyone here lists themselves as "Calm" rather than "Limbic." It doesn't seem right to me, because most people I know are total spazz cases. And not just with me, so it's not like I have some special talent for making people high-strung.
Back to my original question, is it possible to correct this? Don't suggest meditation, because my stepfather forced me to do that growing up, so now the idea freaks me out.
Also, is it really possible for me to be a T and limbic? Because all the issues associated with....limbicity...is why I call myself ESFP rather than ESTP, despite being more Ti/Fe than Fi/Te.
