    -aren't in a severly unhealthy mind state

    ...then I'm having a very hard time fathoming that you could see your own type as more negative than positive.
    Well...a hell of a lot of people don't fit those criteria.

    I do think the general style of cognition of your type, what you prioritize, etc. is going to seem right to you if you have typed yourself correctly. Where people might come to dislike their type is in seeing the effects of some type-related weaknesses on their life, or feeling like the world expects them to be different than they are. That can make you wish you were a different type. (There's a 'grass is always greener' element to this too, since no one can clearly see the struggles of others and tend to focus on the ways they have it good).

    I don't mind, one way or another. Yeah, it's cool being an INTJ. I wouldn't throw a fit if anyone thought I was actually a different type, though, nor would I throw a fit because I'm not a different type.

    Plus, I can air my super massive ego on the internet and people will go "Yeah, it's just another INTJ. Nothing new to see here."

    Warts and all I like my type and I firmly believe if more people were more like me my weaknesses would be less of an issue. Would I change? Not a chance. I like examining the world through the lens of logic and I enjoy playing with ideas and honestly I can't think of anything more satisfying.

    I really enjoy my type but I do wish I was a tad less jellyfish at times. I wish I could be 90% INFP and 10% ENTJ.

    I like individuals of my type. As for me....well, who else would I be if I wasn't me?
    I admit I fear the flaws of my type (both MBTI & enneagram) are more devastating than other types & the strengths less rewarding.

    I hate it, being a predator makes you lonely. Having an over-active craving for recognition doubly so

    Hey, who said ENTPs were predators? Or are you talking about your Enneagram type?
