Is this just an NF thing, or is it a strong F thing?
Here I quote from Kiersey's Please Understand Me II, where he compares SPs' attitude toward errors to that of the NFs, saying, "...nor do they live in anticipation of mistakes as their abstract opposites the idealists do...." THAT'S IT!!!
Part of what contributes to my depressive outlook on life is my high perfectionistic standards joined to my belief that I will probably fail at what I do. I have hardly ever failed at anything I have tried, but I believe that I have a greater chance to do badly than to succeed. I have a high GPA, and yet each time I sign up for a class all I can see is myself bringing home an F on the last day of class. What on earth?!?!?
I would have thought it was just my weirdness, except that it is the same for my ENFP mother. Is it just my family? What do y'all think?
