    when im pissed off, i try to start a fight

    poke the right buttons, have them explode

    at the batting cages the other day, almost got into a fight with three rude guys from Orange County. They tried calling the cops on me, but when it came down to it, I said nothing wrong. Its strange, I can be very threatening, yet on paper, I won't say a directly threatening thing. Just something to the effect of "So when do u get offa work?" makes them go crazy cus of the way I say it and my body language. so they know i'll be waiting for them... haha. But to the cops I didn't exactly say anything wrong.

    An unhealthy ENFP, by that definition, would be verrry fickle; unable to commit to anything and could easily turn to manipulation since their Fi isnt allowed to hit the breaks. This is when only Ne is used and the rest of the functions are slaves to it and don't have equal say. You could say an unhealthy ENP has no 'breaks' to slow them down.
    I like your take on this. There have been periods of my life where I knew I was unhealthy, and I was very much cut off from my emotions and felt unanchored from everything. At times, I was like a car going 110 mph on the highway with no driver. Talk about about Ne running the show!

    I'm not sure I buy the argument that unhealthy types behave like their shadow types. I'm not sure I ever behaved like an ISTJ even in my darkest times. That's just me though.

    I tend to repress my anger until it builds and then I lash out quite viciously. I have problems confronting people and if I don't do it in a timely manner it comes out too big and too fast.
    Anger is also a feeling.

    Usually stress causes a person to act like their shadow, not unhealthiness (Unless the unhealthiness caused the stress in the first place)

    The example of where the person was uber picky and very detail-bogged was an example of being an ISTJ shadow of an ENFP.

    I wonder how much of that's dependent on developmental stage and cultural influences though. And I do remember now when I behaved like an ISTJ. When I was very little, I actually planned out each day meticulously down to the minute.

    Could anyone point me to literature on healthy/unhealthy types? What's the intellectual basis for what we're talking about?
