    Default INFJ goes to ESTP under stress?

    How does this exhibit itself for others? When I'm going through something negative I feel I lose my introverted intuition, which is very difficult. I'm not sure if I really do but I've been trying to pinpoint it. Any specific traits we would be prone to since it's going to be the INFJ version of ESTP?

    This is one quote from TypeLogic Home Page that suggests the ESTP transition

    I think it has to do with focusing outwardly under stress and acting without thinking. When your internal circuitry overloads there is nothing left but to respond to the immediate environment.

    Thanks Toonia. Btw-what is your avatar from, if you don't mind me asking? The woman in the pic resembles Juliette Binoche
