    1. You have to taste defeat first.
    2. You confuse pride with ambition. I doubt you can ever be strong if you are motivated only by the fear of losing the game.

    Yes, it really all depends on quality and personal opinions.

    In a situation where success is measured on a scale of 10, I'd rather choose one 10/10 plan instead of three 9/10 ones.

    You're extremely delusional if you think you can see behind the masks of people IRL.

    Sounds like Enneagram Type 4.

    I'm sorry to hear that, man. Hopefully your experiences at TypoC will help you better understand others and yourself.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    That's why I enjoy you guys so much. Because (some of) y'all understand. And even the one's who don't generally have a benign interest in trying to learn.

    This is the story of a lot of NT's - a minority group that feels a bit out of the water.

    I can say ENTJ's in my own experieince grow into themselves... your abilities/potentially are truly massive, and so it takes time to get to grips with them and to understand yourself.

    Be kind to you and let yourself grow without too much pushing - just be and you will be fine.

    You're already helping just by being here.

    It was weird.

    When I was a child, it was like however special, and good I thought I was in my heart, that is how much shit the other kids threw at me.

    yay! Our work here is finished.

    Well, not really...

    Okay, here's the thing.
    Are you still that sad little boy?
    ...Or is that something you once were -- powerless and overwhelmed?
    You look like a grown man to me, when I see your pictures.
    Someone with power.

    I do not see you as a sad little boy until you present yourself that way to me, and you try to convince me you are.

    It's not that you don't feel powerless now, nor that you don't feel sad... but in many ways it is a way you are casting yourself. Because it seems that you feel you do not have the power to be anything else.

    ... for myself, I have been many things in the past,
    but only because it was how I chose to view myself.
    Once I changed how I viewed myself, I transformed accordingly.

    Transformation is such a tricky business sometimes, and yet as simple as seeing a different 'you' in the mirror. Both hard and easy all at once.

    Not in the least.

    Three far more than Four, and he's definitely not Four.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    as a kid everyone is trying to be the same, they change friends every five minutes and part of bonding is the exclusion of other people.

    There was a guy at school wiht me from Shrilanka, I went to a typically Scottish high school, he was one of say 3 people who had an ethnicity that was not local grown or Itallian (the school I was in had a fair few second generation Itallian).. hence this poor guy stood out like a asore thumb - he was my bros best friend. He was bullied horribly (I suspect he was either an ENTJ or an INTJ) and is still a fair bit scarred by it, but at the end of the day, he is now a full qualified doctor making life or death decisions over the kids that did him wrong as a kid. If he weere an employer he would be hiring and firing them.

    Where I grew up, often the victims for a few years became the bosses for life.

    Letting this stuff go would be really good for you to do, because otherwise you will take this negativety with you and it will prevent you beign all you can be
