I can definitely see where the OP is coming from here. On the one hand, "discovering" my type and MBTI gave me the boost of courage I needed to get out of a bad situation, so I wouldn't want to give that up.
It does bother me how I end up monitoring my actions and thoughts and relate them to MBTI. If it is an activity or thought that I think my type should enjoy, I will pursue it more. I guess the logic behind this is that if I act more fully like my type, then I will be happier and more comfortable with a life that suits me. The end result, though, is that I'm not completely enjoying the experience of my environment and consciousness in the moment. I'm constantly stepping back and trying to fit everything into MBTI, and limiting myself to my type.
Does anybody else do this?
