    Default What type do you try to look like when you are obviously not?

    1) what type do you try to look like?
    2) why do you try to look like this type?
    3) what qualities of this type to you admire?
    4) what qualities of your own personality do you wish were more like this type?


    for me:
    I try to look like an INFP 9w1. I would love to be more
    - feminine
    - innocent
    - sensitive
    - sweet
    - docile
    - delicate
    - charming and suave
    - beautiful

    but alas, I am none of these things. I'm a a choleric, flamboyant, outspoken and spitfiery ENFP 8w9. this is becoming more and more apparent the older I get and sometimes I wish that I was a different. as a child, I always imagined my older self being more like a prince or a nobleman, but instead I'm turning into a more virile, firebrand, pushy entrepreneur type that most would consider extremely masculine and gritty.

    This is rather ironic as a guy. I have a number of qualities that are widely admired and respected as ideal masculine qualities, but to me, the feminine, the artistic and the pure are so much more appealing. While I prize my confidence and inner strength, masculine qualities as a whole are so unsavory to me. feminine qualities are so much more pleasant and enjoyable. I've always envied those who were graceful and beautiful.

    Here is the funny thing, Im a 9, that tries to seem more 8 when I am around people I am uncomfortable with/dont trust/dont feel safe around.
    You are not powerless, you just need to accept your power for what it is, a part of the whole, no one man can save the world, but you can be a light to those who envelope themselves in darkness, The candle that sparks the inferno.

    Well, I love THE IDEA of order and self-restraint but I'm none of that.

    Instead I'm emotional, passionate, mouthy, and eccentric.

    I can play different characters, pending on my environment. I think I can throw a convincing IxFJ shadow.

    I can also seem like a very pushy ExTJ at other times.

    It's not really, me, though. In my natural state, without regards to what other people might want, I'm actually pretty extremely NFP.

    I think maybe it's possible that I'm a 6 who tries to act like a 3. Maybe that's what Petra is seeing...the opposite of what she assumes.

    This is kind of strange question.

    perhaps it's my protective instincts that make me feel this way. more vulnerable innocent people (such as 9s, 2s, 4s and IXFX types) have a special place in my heart and I feel the need to take care of them and preserve their purity. I've always seen myself as sort of a natural father figure/caring older brother type.

    I'll take all my NF-siblings depending on the situation.

    I'll go for INFP for the same reason as you, INFJ to deal with big groups I feel uneasy in and need to navigate carefully, as well as people I don't trust and ENFJ for the sheer raw yet magnetic leadership qualities they have when I need to get something done with a group of people or leave an impact on a group. (though if I lose patience it often looks a lot more ExTJ , incidentily, I don't actually try to look like them, but I've been told that when I lose my patience and need to get things done *now*, I most definitely do..for a short time. It does help greatly with efficiency though, so it works, it just doesn't feel comfortable for my NF-soul )

    Wow! An extrovert who wishes they were more introverted! Finally!

    Sometimes I wish I was an INTJ, though other times I'm glad I'm INFJ.

    many ENFPs and ENFJs greatly admire introverts and often wish they themselves were more introverted

    2) why do you try to look like this type?
    Because I feel that Te is more accepted than Fe in many environments, and I don't want to be dismissed as irrational or sentimental by those around me.
    3) what qualities of this type to you admire?
    - detachment
    - effectiveness
    - ability to organize
    - pragmatism
    - clarity in expression
    - conciseness
    4) what qualities of your own personality do you wish were more like this type?
    All of the above.

    I'm really not those things, but I can try to fake them. It feels so hollow, though.

    if it makes you feel better, FJs are much more accepted where I'm from, it's TJs that get a bad wrap. Even I'm shunned for being too much like an ENTJ
