Living in suburbia, I've had very few environmentally induced troubles. Almost every issue I've ever been involved in was my design.
I suspect many others are the same way. Especially NTPs.
I think I know why.
It's not that we enjoy the problem itself, but rather that we most enjoy ourselves when coming up with a solution for a problem. If there is no problem, we can't enjoy ourselves so we make one so we can.
I think this is less applicable for the NTJs as they're more likely to set their sights on a larger goal, which ordinarily requires fewer petty issues so the end can be focused on.
What do y'all think. I'm not sure if this is an established understanding, but I realized recently, that I create problems for myself on purpose, social or not. I'm not a masochist, I just like puzzles.
The more at risk the better, because it means I've got to come up with just the right answer or it all might go to hell. That might go to partially explain why ENTPs are often risk-takers too. To a situationally defined cap of course... I'm not self destructive either.
