    psyche, along with sociology, is one of the majors that i lack one semester in getting. it's the easiest topic i've ever studied and get As without even trying, which i attribute to my studying it for fun (both by books and real life experience) since i was a child before even taking the classes. i enjoy it for many reasons. the puzzles, the helping, the actual encouragement to be objective, everything.

    just because i don't go around giving advice on these forums does NOT mean that i don't enjoy that type of thing. it's that i can't stand giving unsolicited advice. that's the big difference. however, even here and at INTPc, i've given plenty of it when asked, even many times talking people through their problems over AIM and yahoo. i just don't advertise that i'm like that.

    Grin, I know, it can be overwhelming. I dunno if it helps, but it's not meant to be a personal attack, it's just passion running wild. Stop us, tell us to back up and run that by you again. That's usually enough to stop the surge of energy that has gotten away from us.

    I have been to *many* therapists, as well as psychiatrists.

    And the *only* therapists who I have ever had *any* success with whatsoever, have been Fs.

    I am of the opinion that a therapist should be a well-balanced F.

    what's the difference between a well-balanced F and a well-balanced T?

    That one is still inevitably an F, and the other is still inevitably a T.

    Nah, I just tune out, imagine myself strangling them, and wait for them to wind down so there can be a rational discussion.

    In the interest of equality, with out of control Te I do much the same thing, but I imagine slapping them instead of strangling.




    I just had this discussion with Javo, spooky

    Umm...


    EDIT. I wouldn't want an ENTP therapist, I don't know if they could put their ego aside sufficiently or if they would be empathic enough. Also, what happens when they get bored with you and/or the job?

    I've been to six therapists when I was having bad anxiety for a few years. Only one who worked for me was a T, I think. He had logical solutions to my problems that I still use every day. And my anxiety is under control, now. I couldn't stand just sitting in those offices with fuzzy-wuzzy F's talking about my problems. I talk about my problems all day to my friends. I need soulutions damnit not more reflection!!!

    So yea, I think it could work.

    I think that a therapist should be empathetic, and perhaps I think this because I am an F, I dunno.

    But, I have WORKED my T therapists/psychotherapists/psychiatrists, deeming them unable to understand me and my problems, and hence incompetent, then fucking with them for a bit to then move on.

    I have had three therapists who have actually helped me a lot, all Fs, and incredibly empathetic, I could not hide my problems with them, nor did I want to, they felt me and where I was coming from, they listened, truly listened, and helped.

    i agree. "different strokes for different folks" means there is no reason why a T can't succeed in this field.
