I don't know what you mean but it sure sounds better!It's more like a hot stove than "It takes one to know one" isn't it, Lookin4theBestNU?
I know you shall hold your ground. The F/T clash is going to make it difficult to communicate this the way that we both understand what I am babbling about. However what I mean by 'entirely negative' (though I am not taking a 'big' offense) is that the statement you made is not a jesting problem area for us. It's more like a fairly deep cut to the NF temperament/character. I want to be objective but it doesn't always work!I don't think I understand what you mean by "entirely negative"? All the prayers are intended to expose a problem area for type in question, i.e. something negative.
Mine, for instance, predicts that I will stubbornly cling to my 'thief' interpretation of the ENFJ prayer.Yes I can be manipulative this is true but it would bother me deeply to do it purposefully. Through trial and error and having been hurt/used previously I know the signals of when someone is trying to manipulate me. In all honesty I don't think about it too much (projection) because I am pretty confident that someone couldn't do it without my knowledge. My suspiciousness comes more from reading too much into what people say and do. I am looking for the things they don't want me to see. I am usually accurate but not always of course. I hope that's better .If I understand you correctly, you do have a natural tendency to manipulate, but you do not project that tendency onto others?Your suspiciousness of others' motives instead comes from... what exactly?
