    Yeah. Some of that IS legitimate exploration -- I mean, you think something is good (including socialization), but maybe at some point, long-term, you grow to see that it has a negative outcome or isn't worth the cost. So you change back.

    And so, my Ti-lead brothers and sisters, I've come to you. I don't want to filter myself as much anymore.
    ...is this, perhaps, the beginning stages of showcasing Ti?

    Honestly, I feel alive in using it. I love making people gasp in shock...especially extroverted sensors who really have a hard time with sarcasm...and, sometimes the truth. I've gone rouge. Muhuhahhahahaa.

    (In reply to Jennifer) It's that old 'everything is good in moderation' thing... always bites me in the butt. I agree.. often we also censor or restrict ourselves out of good intentions or a spirit of getting along with others, but after a while the censored bit will begin to act up. As we get older, we also tend not to be so self-conscious, or at least we use more finesse when balancing what we're thinking/feeling vs what is socially acceptable. Maybe it's the beginning of wisdom!

    Well, it's certainly not coming out of my backside like everything else does. It's pure, unadulterated truth.

    Honesty is a good thing. I think people should try it out.

    Truth is a good thing, and sarcasm is a way of getting the truth across but if you worry what others might think of you Ti is your worst enemy.

    Why bequeath to me, INFP, such a vile, and false opinion that thee, upon pulling it out of thine own ass, it soundeth crass, and forces jest laughs, there is not enough truth in your self-indulgent soup for me to pay any attention at the mention of mine own rear-mass.
