    probably.

    i do seriously think about how much better off i might be as a J though. being a P is like always running to catch up with everyone else.

    Eh I get that feeling too. But do you really want to be a J? Honestly, at least I quite enjoy being a P, that is, until I have assignments due. I just want to be a P with better organization skills, doesn't make me want to be a J though . I've compared the what I am now to an ENFJ, and no offense to any ENFJ's, I think they're great people, but I don't want to be them. I just think it's easy to think 'man I wish I was more organized/had better planning' and not think about the advantages being a P has over a J, things like finding it harder to rebound when bad things happen or having certain functions as your dominant/auxiliary functions.

    Type is inborn. We are the types we are because its programmed in our genetic code somehow. Our brains are wired to naturally think and process information in certain ways. We can learn to compensate for our weakness and learn new ways to think about things but there will always be a way we're most naturally predisposed to.

    I find it hard to fathom wanting to be a different type. When I want to change stuff about myself it's change action but the roots and reasons are all the same. Kind of solve the problem while still being an INTP.

    Try to be the best that you can. 'Type' is an abstraction that you can live without. Seriously, do you really want to be someone else that badly?

    There is that, but why, why do we buy into it, darn social pressure.

    This does seem to be a popular opinion, but I do wish to see some evidence for this. It's a big claim.

    Over the years certain traits have come in as useful. They have become stronger and stronger. You could change, but would it be worth the hassle? You can leverage the skills you do have to get what you want. If you can't you just aren't thinking it through enough. Something is only a weakness if it prevents you from doing something you need to do. A lot of people say they can't be organised. I don't see why any type can't be organised, you just have to find your style.

    That is where it is at. Style. I've got to be me.
