    Yes

    How to curb this dependence on external feedback for high self worth?
    Everybody needs a pat on the back now and then.

    I don't think it's a matter of low self worth but, more simply, of feeling like you are not doing what comes natural to you. Personally I don't care about corporate stuff as long as I am responsible of my own destiny and not in a subordinate position (or if I am, I have to feel like I have enough freedom). For example, I would be happy being the owner of a small (but successful) restaurant or hotel or mountain hut etc.

    Gear size is irrelevant except when it impacts on efficacy. Standing still when Te deems that something needs to be accomplished, is a major frustration.

    I've experienced that and it's not really good for my psyche. I am forced to give up control and repress my natural tendencies which can make me snappy and depressed. Eventually one of the two ends the relationship.

    Is Benedict Cumberbatch an ENTJ by the way?
