    Default Do you feel you're not up to your type?

    I've lived through and thought of every MBTI test result I've gotten in the online tests - and they include every single of the 16 types except ISFJ and one other I can't remember. Now, I don't have bad self-esteem. I'm good. But, I understand you can get the idea.

    You're an ENTP, but you're not quite the captain Jack.
    You're an ENTJ, but you're not quite Napoleon. You're not the owner of multi-billion dollar corporation.
    You're an ISFP, but not all of your life's moments are wonderful joyous contemplative appreciative miracles to celebrate the moments of life.

    I might have gotten the examples wrong.

    But anyway, do you feel being deficient compared to the high par that's set on your type description somewhere by someone?

    No. I don't treat it as a description of how I'm supposed to act.

    I treat it more as an approximation of how I am. If it ends up not fitting me that well, I suppose I would need to consider that I may be a different type.

    I doubt I'm anything but INTP, though. Maybe, just maybe, I might be an ENTP or an INFJ, but I don't consider either one to be very likely. They don't fit as well.

    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Well mine sure Isn't - which is why the thread came to be

    Or, I'm trying to downplay my strong Te to make myself feel better about the hard instances of Te display. Who knows.

    All you can do is your best

    I struggle daily with getting mine to function properly...but I've seen it progress every so slowly, so hopefully I'll get there someday.

    Not really. I recognize the stereotype and hyperbole in many of the descriptions, and feel neither limited by it, nor compelled to live up to it. It is merely one window on my gifts and limitations, what I can capitalize on and what needs work.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    I'm a sensor and I walk into walls, drop everything, and generally don't pay attention to the world around me.

    Don't worry about fitting into a box, dude.

    I may very well not be up to the InTP type because I have a lot of ISTP traits, hence the small n (and some people even say I'm in a TiNi loop; this is madness) I'm way too much a geek!

    I don't think any two people really come from the same place regarding typology, unless they're regiurgitative types that use phrases like "chart the course" and also happen to be talking to someone who values the same author's work.

    Concepts of type are or should be too dynamic to hinge any one perception on. So short answer: no.
