Im not sure if this is relevant to MBTI so if moderators want, they can move this.
But ever since I was a child ive hated who I was and strove to be someone else in the hope that this would improve my life. Unfortunately as a more intelligent person might have realised, you tend to return back to your old habits instead. Oh not to mention that whole 'be who you are' thing which apparantly helps....
Essentially I saw my life as a nightmare akin to an endlessly repeated Barney the Dinosaur episode from the mid 90's.
However I did wonder if it was possible to actually change a mind; to delve in and uproot the habits of cognition. Is this possible?
Or does it just result in cognitive dissonance, identity problems and stress? As for MBTI, would some types have an easier job of achieving this than others?
