    Used to be an ENTJ, but I decided for INTJ.
    I have a sense that i'm meant for something big, and i'm good at most things I do, but I have no drive to do anything whatsoever. I just want to read and have the essentials and some comfort in my life.
    Do as little as possible.

    I aspired to be an army officer once, but my knee got busted on an obstacle course fluke accident so that kind of ruined my life dream.
    I've been thinking recently of becoming a gunsmith, because knee or not, I love guns and I am good at it both in theory and practice.

    I'm writing a book, but it's kind of slow right now. Me and my INFP now ex just broke up and there are lots of other annoying disturbances messing up my focus and inspiration.
    Right now, I mostly feel like sleeping with as many people in as short a time as possible and drink a lot.

    You're not alone in feeling like some kind of failure

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come

    Haha!

    I was thinking I was depressed. But I'm not sure I am. I think I'm making it out to be worse than it is haha.

    If you can, seek professional advice. Even if it's not big now, prevention is best.

    Yeah well, I have in the last few months been feeling like I've been on a downward spiral.

    I just did a test. I'm not depressed at all. I'm just being realistic.

    With a failing job market, and an increase in graduates, as a philosophy graduate my prospects are DOG SHITE. This is what's getting to me. I know I'll get a job no matter what. But I want a good job. I'm just not interested enough in my course to do well. Plus I just seem to think I can't get a job and then get a masters. I wanna get the fuck out of academia, it's tiring the shit out of me. Philosophy is the most boring, pointless, useless thing ever.

    Nothing really. I love listening to music, reading, watching films or quality TV series, drinking and socialising. But when it comes to having a hobby or interest, I lack a passion.

    ETA: I suppose you could call typology a passion, based on my desire to understand the way in which people work. However, the more I learn, the more I realise that it's essentially impossible to categorise people and that there are so many flaws in typing systems that I'm unsure whether it's even worth having them or not.
    Nah. You just need to find something you're interested in.

    Lol!


    So uhhhh.....* awkwardly looks around*.......

    Yeah I have been the same way at times, but not because what I was doing didn't matter enough, but that I understood it wasn't as good as it could, should, be. I tend to be my own worst enemy in that way.

    The only thing that gets me out of it, is results. Seeing that the efforts I am putting in are doing something, anything. So long as things are moving, I do not think too much about such things.

    Id say it is probably a sense of stagnation, boredom, to much put into the maintenance of life without the result of growing. I suggest learning new skills and hobbies on the side. One thing is bound to lead to another, as long as you are doing something that allows you to see little moments of achievement while you pursue your long term goals.

    I agree and feel affinity with all of this.

    Anyway, I was contemplating all this early this morning at 2am, and I was thinking about myself and how I'm not sure what is me and what is part of the system I have latched onto in order to create an 8w7 sp/sx ENTJ SLE persona for myself. Thus I decided today to create a list of strengths and weaknesses. I feel better already. I know no one really gives a shit about me on here, but it feels good to get them out in the open and share with everyone my life. So here we go:

    Strengths

    Honest
    Direct
    Forward-thinking
    Analytical
    Enthusiastic
    Energetic
    Objective
    Ordered
    Decisive
    Flexible
    Adaptable
    Open-minded
    Trusting
    Reliable
    Trustworthy


    Weaknesses

    Impatient
    Impulsive
    Quick to draw conclusions
    Prone to changing opinions
    Insensitive
    Selfish
    Miserly
    Arrogant
    Self-righteous
    Lazy
    Cynical
    Give up very easily
    Emotionally detached
    Over-thinking
    Prone to bouts of anger


    My aim is to conquer all the weaknesses within this year. I think I can do it.

    Actually, to other ENTJs: I'm really interested in what you perceive your own strengths and weaknesses to be.

    If you succeed, we'll have a chat around 27/01/2011, and you'll teach me how you did it, ok?

    This seems to be a pretty common NTJ problem.

    I'll tell you now and save you the trouble: willpower.
