    Default Getting in touch with Your Values/Emotions/Instincts

    I am supposedly a F dom and my N is incredibly high but I am so out with everything that I don't see as "logical" that I keep getting screwed over in many areas of my life. In the end, I know have strong internal guide but my head always wins the battle.

    Maybe this is a self esteem issue?

    Part of logic is knowing that you will be affected, are a participant, and need to take care of your own needs, if you still want to be qualified to make rational decisions. Sounds like instead of doing that, you take yourself out of the equation.

    Am I wrong?

    Follow the guide. He knows where He's going.
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    you are putting too much weight into MBTI to bring about a solution to your problems. MBTI cannot do that, nor was it designed to. Best to look elsewhere.

    BINGO! That sound about right. Because of it, my emotional responses seem to be on the extreme ends, detached or too emotionally worked up.

    I wasn't thinking too much about MBTI as the cure but yeah my OP gave that impression. Thanks for bringing to my attention. Do you have suggestions?

    Hm, it really isn't too hard. Next time you plan on making a decision, just factor in the element, of as little possible damage to yourself, and weigh the importance of that decision against the one that doesn't look out for you.

    You will find most of the time looking out for your needs and feelings is harmless and doesn't really change the direction you go. Just maybe how you get there, or approach the situation.

    Very rarely is it necessary for anyone to be truly self sacrificing of their well being. Very rarely.

    Well, yeah, I think your Ni is there for a reason. Use it. Rely on it. Don't neglect it or tune it out or you are denying a very important part of yourself and I think doing that certainly can get you into some problem spots, as you mention it has.

    Pitseleh, can you post your type so members can try to help from a cognitive function perspective?
