    Default I think I'm INTJ.

    For a while, I thought I was an ENTP.
    I've had a lot of personal problems in the past and have gotten some good advice from friends: to do what comes naturally to me, which would allow me to feel more comfortable in my own skin.
    It seems to be more of an IXXJ approach to life than an EXXP.
    I've learned how to act like an EP type many years ago- since I perceived that type as having an easier time in the social realm.
    However, as I've grown more secure in myself- I've found that I am more eager to organize/plan than "just let things happen" and that I enjoy spending time pursuing solitary hobbies.
    So yea- I know I've had a bad habit of changing from type to type in the past but I think INTJ is the answer.
    It's a type I haven't really considered since the profiles I've read often described the type as "forceful" and "self-confident".
    However, "self-confident" isn't really a key trait of any personality type.
    To be self-confident is to be comfortable with who you are.

    The other thing I've done is really try to look into what my "shadow type" is- and I think it's very Se-ish.. in particular with my tendency to overindulge in physical pursuits when stressed out (e.g: alcohol, women)..

    You're not alone-- I think I am, too.

    I'm also a type 3. Not the typical type 5.

    No offense, but just yesterday I read some of your posts in another thread and thought to myself, "that guy doesn't seem like an INTJ".

    Why? And it's not like this is the real world anyway.

    I'm curious. How so and what type do you think might be a better fit?

    Just an intuition...

    They're usually right.

    I don't know what type you are; I just don't think you're an INTJ.
