I classify myself as an ENTP. One of my biggest problems in life, which comes a lot from my type, is that I like to deal with the abstract, future, and theory. I am not "for" jumping out there and getting too involved in life, or the moment, and am often living in the theory of what hasn't happened yet. This has led to a few problems. I neglect the moments in my life that bring me tons of joy, like spending time with friends and family, having an adventure, and just living, because I am very independent and enjoy the times I can do my own thing and not get too wrapped up in the moment.
The same personality characteristic mentioned above, also causes laziness ony my part. I can get frustrated with situations, get caught up in my own thing, or just stop trying because I am really not a "doer" but more of an "inventor", and neglect the chores in my life that need to be done. Then, I will usually improvise and do them half-assed, and not to the level that they should or need to be done. Or maybe I won't do them at all. This also causes a few problems.
Lastly, I am a bit socially awkward. Not totally, I have a great group of friends, and plenty of friends, but it seems like often times I can draw connections in my head that others can't, then make a joke, and nobody knows what the hell I am talking about but myself. I am so wrapped up in the millions of thoughts and ideas flying through my head, that what comes out of my mouth after the thoughts have all been quickly gone through sometimes makes no sense to the person hearing it.
I reason that a lot of these problems stem from my emphasis on the N characteristic. What I want to do is become more of a hybrid, an ExTP, who doesn't stay at home posting Myers-Briggs theory on a forum, but goes out there and lives his life. This shouldn't be too hard because I am in some ways an ESTP already. I think this will solve a lot of the bigger problems in my life right now (And I don't have that many, thankfully :P ). I want to eliminate a lot of the waste that my N type causes, but keep a lot of the N characteristics I enjoy. Like my ability to think deeply and theoretically. And I don't want to run around in the moment, acting like a complete idiot, which I think keeping some N characteristics might allow me to do. Being an N has also helped me think about my personality, and what I can do to better change it and help myself out. I like myself a lot, but everyone has room to change and be better.
So from here on out, I pledge to simply start doing, and try to become a Extp, and hopefully a better person.
