    Default What puts you in your shadow?

    Specially ENFPs (though others are welcome) ...
    I noticed I've been in my shadow for about 6 months, I know the workplace is definitely a factor, but even though it's settled out, I still feel like I'm in my dark place.. I wonder if there's something I'm missing that is causing this horrible state that I hate living in...

    anyhow.. I thought it'd be kinda interesting to see what factors push you into your ISTJ cave...

    Sudden drop in blood sugar, people mumbling on the phone while having no idea what they really want to ask me, emergency situations.
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    + Feeling suppressed.

    + Sudden blood pressure & serotonin changes. (Starting a new ADD medication/dosage. PMS makes me unable to concentrate -- I'm constantly day-dreaming or seeking out immediate thrills. The ADD symptoms escalates.)

    + Under/over dosage of ADD medications. (Amphetamine over-dosage once caused me to become an unstable ESFP. And I needed to socialize 24/7. Odd and uncomfortable.)

    Feeling alienated. Not that this happens often but when it does... ouch.

    PMS. I think this should be universal.

    When my emotional resources are being sucked dry. I can't handle leeches.
    I am an ENFP but I value justice over mercy.

    Not getting enough sleep for my brains to rest, I guess.

    Being unappreciated for hard work and effort.
    Incompetence of bureaucracy and the fact it can't be reasoned with.
    Making no positive impact whatsoever.
    Being too busy, stressed and/or having a brain fog that stifles your expression and creativity.
    Being around people who have no concern for abuse or taking of life - human, animal, whatever

    What Scortia said plus:

    being asked to do something that you don't know how to go at (or have exhausted all of your personal resources in trying to do so) and lose the ability to see the forest for the trees standing in the way.

    being forced to remain in an environment of unresolved conflict with no hope of it changing even after making heroic efforts.

    people prescribing a course of action before listening enough to properly understand the situation.
