    Well, at least you are doing the "...failing miserably" part well.

    Keep up the good work!

    It basically happens to NPs if we attempt to live too much in our tert/inferior functions. Those functions are there to help us, and for balance, but overall they're supposed to be things like supplement and relief, and for example, the ENFP who tries to be an ISTJ for too long will end up tired, overwrought, stressed out, possibly even burning out from trying to do or accomplish so much to please others, or because they thought it's what they're "supposed to do."

    It's better to learn your natural strengths and work with those.

    Hey -- the stuff about dancing? Wouldn't that be SP instead of SJ? Or gossiping? ExFx, not necessarily SJ. Football? It has been brought to my attention how much some Ns like sports.

    You guys really have got to stop attributing everything that is "not you" to SJs. There are sixteen types, we all have little differences.

    Functionally speaking, NPs have more in common with SJs than NJs. It's actually the number two logical reason that N snobbery is fucking fail...number one is because intelligence has nothing to do with type.

    Work hard = Te

    Tactful = Fe

    Thinking people are weird: everybody

    I'm gonna keep going through this thread and making corrections. Perhaps my Si is acting up.

    To tell the truth, I couldn't tell you the intricacies of the functions or how I use them in everyday life, but I could hijack this thread to demonstrate real-life examples of attempting to fit in.

    Why on earth would we limit ourselves to talking merely about imitating one group? Why not describe imitation of any group? Surely, these examples are still perfectly relevant to the topic at hand, and it is important, to me, to know more about who or what I try to emulate.

    I dislike how everyone has been defining "looking like SJs"...

Of course, these aren't limited to music by any means, but when I finally watched that movie, I couldn't help but laugh when he started the pre-murder lectures on popular music.
    I do exactly the same thing. Though usually I don't prepare the speech in advance; I just go off on a huge tangent and sound like a know-it-all
