    Default Fanfare and Failure - An MBTIc glossary

    So, I thought it would be interesting to create a thread in which people offered some of their best – and worst – moments.

    Feel free to post something you are particularly proud of, alongside something you wish you could just forget…



    Achievement – I took the SATs when I was 12.
    Failure – I almost took my (younger) cousin to prom.

    Achievement: I was part of a problem-solving team that placed first at a world competition, with record scores in each category.

    Failure: Ineffective safety phasing led me to drive down a city street as it was being paved. I sidled onto the alternate lane only after overhearing, through the open passenger window, a construction worker muttering, "Idiot."

    Achievement: I charted my own educational course from a young age and started college at 14.

    Failure: I started college at 14 and couldn't socialize with anyone. I learned how to make conversation in social situations from the internet.

    I know I have probably done some amazing crap, but as an ENFP, I really don't see anything I have done as an achievment, rather than just going through the motions. If I ask my friends what achievments I have done, they go on and on, but honestly to me its all been done before so its nothing to brag about.

    say you graduated suma cum laude, or you got into a great med school, or you did this and that and yadda yadda yadda, it has all been done before so its nothing to brag about. I would bet that most ENTP's and ENFP's approach this topic this way also, because I think we are the main types that really just like to live in the moment.

    Success: Music
    Failure: math

    I'm too young to have really achieved anything yet though... I'm just making the building blocks right now. Watch out for later

    Success: I won the "Outstanding Achievement in English" award senior year in high school. (Which was only a of couple months ago, so don't think I'm some old man recalling a past glory.)
    Failure: Missed opportunities.

    Weak, sure, but I'm still young (18).
