    Default What the therapists said...

    I came across what these counselors and psychotherapists said about some of their patients as categorized by type. Keep in mind, these are the individuals that needed or wanted to seek counseling in the first place.

    INFJ: often admit to the therapist their fear they are or could easily become "crazy". There fear is a function of their uncanny ability to "read" the underlying emotions of the individuals and groups of people with whom they interact long before anyone else is aware that such emotions exist.

    ISTJ: particularly men, tend to agree with a therapist's suggestion that they express love for their children by providing financial security and ensuring that the children behave in an appropriate and responsible manner. These clients can become quite emotional at the therapists' recognition that an ISTJ's family may misinterpret such an expression of love as a need to control or dominate the child

    ENTP: may acknowledge with some discomfort the underlying fear that they lack substance and seriousness and that their contributions are not really valued. They may therefore take particular pride in accomplishments that call on less-preferred type characteristics, those that require slow, methodical, and detailed work over an extended period, rather than the more facile, innovative projects that come most easily to them

    INTP: especially women, often report an early awareness of being profoundly different from other children, leading to hypersensitivity to signs of rejection and to painful memories of being ridiculed and scapegoated as "weird".

    ESTJ and ENTJ: may view their need for counseling as a "defeat," as personal failure to solve their own life problems. They may project their own sense of incompetence onto the therapist, which can emerge as challenging, confrontational approach to the counseling/therapy enterprise.

    Yeah, I like everything the MBTI manual says about INxPs. Least likely to be content with work, most likely to feel out of place, most likely to be leaving their jobs.... INTP's inferior function grip experiences make us have inappropriately emotional outbursts....

    Hah! I've begged at least a half dozen people to get me committed if I go nuts when I get older. I guess maybe I'd be worried about it even if my mom wasn't nuts.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Ugghg, that sounds FAR too familiar.

    The other type descriptions sounded theoretically plausible. Are those the only ones you found?

    Yes, yes it does.

    I can see the INFJ one as well, quite easily.

    I was just looking. There's some stuff relating to stress. Nothing neatly encapsulated and I don't feel like typing stuff tonight.

    I thought that Introverted Intuitive (INxJ) types would be more likely to feel this.

    At an early age, people also called me crazy and weird (sometimes including teachers) and eventually started taking advantage of me.

    But did this BOTHER you? Your posts really make it sound as if you're not bothered by anything at all. And most INTJ's seem to just tell the world to flip off if they don't like it.

    INxPs would be bothered, though.

    No. Because they know everything already.

    Want my off-the-cuff, unscientific observations of INTJ friends of mine?
