Thread: Can an INTJ doubt themselves?

  1. #1

    Default Can an INTJ doubt themselves?

    I consistently score INTJ, and I match the description mostly, but from that description and others it seems if you are an INTJ you are always confident in your ability, able to keep at something and never second guess themselves. But I do a lot. i have social anxiety and often feel down about my own ability to achieve both socially and academically, and I sometimes have so little motivation to do anything. Is this normal or at least an occasional occurence for an INTJ? All the INTJs on here seem a lot mentally stronger than me.

    An INTJ I know is one of the most self-doubting people I know.

    "Can an INTJ doubt themselves"?


    Hm,..let me think.....well ...no.
    A search for truth is a search for a greedy perspective.

    Nah, that's not truth. That's just your bullshit ideas of truth. Truth is always inclusive. If it's not inclusive, then toughen it up and try harder.

    Hmmm, yes. INTJs are human, no?

    Yes, they can. Perfectionists are hard on themselves.

    I was just coming in to say this. No one can be as hard on us as we are on ourselves. Self-doubt, over-analyzing, second guessing anything relationship related. Not that these things can't be lessened. They can and it takes time but they're always there for us. There are areas I'm supremely confident in and always have been. There are areas I had to put a lot of effort into changing too.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I couldn't agree more.

    No, they can't. Superhuman people don't do that.
    They fly around, stop meteors, solve the mysteries of the universe during lunchbreak, but self-doubt? Nah.
