    Sorry to scratch old wounds but I recall you mentioning in another thread about a girl you had been infatuated with using you and acting like an entitled princess...

    Could it be that at that time you were under stress of your infatuation and acting in your ISTJ shadow around her...like some kind of a duty-fulfiller or a servant...and that was what made you resentful?

    I tried to read up on what the hell an INTP wants out of life.

    I got nothin.

    My inner most goals reflect:

    That I want to have everything run smoothly and efficiently so that I can spend that time that I have now saved, from doing things the more efficient way, doing what I love.

    What I would love is to lounge around all day or spend the time I've saved with the ppl that I love (Fi). (Sounds relatively close to an ISFP, if you ask me.)

    And also I'd like to dance (Se.)

    If my shadow is INTP...I have not met it yet. (And honestly not looking forward to it. It's already a challenge accepting my Fi.)

    Also in general my two biggest problems are that:

    I don't acknowledge my own internal guidance system as an E6 - which also translates to inferior Fi in MBTI

    And as for my 7 wing, I don't take in or absorb experiences as fully as I should - also translates to underdeveloped Se which is my tert.

    I just don't know about INTP being my shadow

    I imagine our normal selves (our type) to be just a protective crust around that inner seed, keeping it safe from external hazards...The seed is where our true desires lie dormant...

    It's our raison d'etre...

    Someone whose shadow is an INFJ would have an inner desire to be all wise and spiritual or a good judge of people perhaps?

    It's not entirely my theory...If that inner desire aligns with yours, then take the mirror image of INFJ functions... The result should be your normal type...

    That is to say, someone whose shadow type is an INFJ would be an ENFP...

    But isn't that a desire every NF type has, though?

    ENFPs have to shed light on that... and not when it comes to the innermost desire I guess... It's something else for me for instance...

    And the innermost desire thing is a sub-conscious one I think... That's why you have to tap into your fantasies and daydreams to be able to identify what it really is...

    no. girls certainly want a servant but I in no way ever would stoop to that level unless she was equally altruistic.

    Shadow type sounds spooky.
