My head hurts .. that was a total riddle to me so i dont fully understand.
Are you unhappy? If so, without thinking, write a list of all the things you would love to do if you didn't have your personality.
Then bite the bullet, get out there and JUST do it. Take a year out and LIVE.
Thinking is bad .. Doing is good.
Make your life memorable by living it on your terms.“I made you take time to look at what I saw and when you took time to really notice my flower, you hung all your associations with flowers on my flower and you write about my flower as if I think and see what you think and see—and I don't.”

That's all people seem to remember me for, then word gets around and when someone who has never met me or has never really noticed me, they seem to be very disappointed that I am actually very reserved.

But yeah, I wasn't all like that before I decided to go after my career 2-3 years ago. I've neglected my personal wishes this time, instead adapting myself to the requirements of the job. I think the effects have taken over my private life, as well. But, I don't have the kind of breathing room I'd need to use my Ne/Ti that much.
Still, I love the pace I'm advancing at the moment, the possibilities that are coming up - my ENTP side loves the upcoming possibilities now that I'm approaching my goal job. For the time being, I have to turbocharge my life and be efficient, for greatest speed to my goal. I'd want steady enough finances to devote some of my time for free-flowing pursuits in the future, in the spirit of ENTP. No, I don't need it to be very steady, just somewhat steady. I don't want to cancel my plans for a new, awesome website because I can't pay my electric bills
Instincts do come up when one is not thinking - and it helps to find one's core. But - life without thinking is ultimately impossible for me. Enjoyable life? Easy. Doing it right now.
I'm not sure what kind of mindset you're going after. I'm afraid you're describing something where people go by the appearances, and have only one explanation for everything. For an N, it's make-believe that doesn't give satisfaction at all. I just can't not to be philosophical, even if I didn't talk about it.
I just talked with my girlfriend how one ESFJ we know is like that. She's quite likable, but taking the first explanation in everywhere really directs her life in a twisted way. She accomplishes a lot, but in many ways in areas that aren't very significant in reality. Or, that's what we think.
Uh. I haven't had a vacation in a year.[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]

What mindset am i going for .. I dont have a clue as i said, your original post was a total riddle to me. FRom how i viewed it, i thought maybe you were unhappy or not satisfied about something in your life, so i gave an opinion. If i have perceived it to be wrong, i am grateful if the other person puts me right. I am not a mind reader darling.
So then in a nutshell what do you want?“I made you take time to look at what I saw and when you took time to really notice my flower, you hung all your associations with flowers on my flower and you write about my flower as if I think and see what you think and see—and I don't.”
