    Nope, I me. I'll become the man I was destined to be. My ideals and values guide me, my dreams inspire me, my faith transforms me, and my God is sufficient for me. All of which are helping to shape me into the man I was meant to be.

    How do you deal with your weaknesses?

    I work at them, and let God, time, and my experiences do the rest. Practice helps.

    Is it easy for you to accept what/who you are?

    Why wouldn't it be? I'm not perfect, not by a long shot. Sometimes, I down right suck. I can only do so much about it though. I am who I am. I can work to better myself, but beyond that, it's not worth stressing about. I'm vigilant towards areas in which I can improve and I try to enjoy the moment.

    Do you ever have moments where you wish you never took the test?

    Yes and no. It's a tool. I never really had much of a choice any way. What happened happened. There is nothing I can do to change it. How would I know that I would be better off without it? I don't. I'll live and I'll use it as a tool both to help shape who I am and to help me understand others within reason.

    How do you feel about yourself compared to the other types?

    I'm me. We each individually define our type. The type shouldn't define us. Each person is different. Beautiful in their own way. We have to come to realize that. The rose is made more beautiful because of it's thorns.


    I ask because i am currently doing this in my head ..
    An ESFJ at odds with self is a remarkable sight. When a decision must be made, especially one involving the risk of conflict (abhorrent to ESFJs), there ensues an in-house wrestling match between the aforementioned black-and-white Values and the Nemesis of Discord. The contender pits self against self, once firmly deciding with the Right, then switching to Prudence to forestall hostilities, countered by unswerving Values, ad exhaustium, winner take all.

    Thanks.
    Glad I could tender a response.

    Eagle, You mentioned 'The rose is made more beautiful because of it's thorns'.
    Its funny you should say that as i have referred to myself as a rose bush and the thorns are my weaknesses that i dislike.
    Hmmm, interesting.



    Thanks Habba for that .. Yeah, i suppose it was OK.

    Do you ever have moments where you just wish you could be any other type?
    No. I never really think about it. I try to mature in areas where I see my immaturity, but I don't think about personality in terms of "what if's."

    How do you deal with your weaknesses?
    Make note of them, ponder their negative effect on others and on the world around me, and come up with ideas of how to combat them.

    Is it easy for you to accept what/who you are?
    Sometimes. It is easy to accept the things I cannot change. Weaknesses and immaturity or wrong choices are very hard for me to accept. I beat myself up over my mistakes and struggle with moving on.

    Do you ever have moments where you wish you never took the test?
    No.

    How do you feel about yourself compared to the other types?
    I see things in other types I admire and often wonder what it would be like to see the world as they see it. I look at certain aspects of my character that come naturally to my personality type and I'm inspired to learn from the people around me how to be less rigid, more sure of myself, more laid back, etc.

    Gotta say I hate it when that happens.

    No. Generally I like what I am.

    Try to twist them and use them for good.

    It's doable

    Do you ever have moments where you wish you never took the test?

    No, but I fear that I sometimes mold myself to fit descriptions.

    How do you feel about yourself compared to the other types?

    I may not look like much, but when it counts, I can be counted on.

    Do you ever have moments where you just wish you could be any other type?

    Yes. I really wish I could be an ESTJ. I hate being introverted. I like people and I like to have friends, but I don't feel like I'm good enough at dealing with them.

    How do you deal with your weaknesses?

    There isn't much I can do about it as long as I'm still here, but hopefully once I go to college I'll be able to deal with it.

    Is it easy for you to accept what/who you are?

    For the most part, but I feel like my life is going to go downhill if things don't change soon.

    Do you ever have moments where you wish you never took the test?

    No. I like the whole concept of personality typing, and descriptions of my type are quite accurate, even the more cynical descriptions.

    How do you feel about yourself compared to the other types?

    I think I have a pretty good type, but of course, I don't believe that introversion is a good thing.

    Interesting questions.

    Do you ever have moments where you just wish you could be any other type?
    Not exactly.

    How do you deal with your weaknesses?
    That would take a long time to explain. But, the first step of course is to realize what they are.

    Is it easy for you to accept what/who you are?
    Most of me yes, but the parts I don't like I REALLY don't like.

    Do you ever have moments where you wish you never took the test?
    Nope, knowledge is power!

    How do you feel about yourself compared to the other types?
    I wish I was either good at fitting in and adjusting myself to people like the FPs and FJs often are or magnetizing people like the NPs can do or that I just really didn't care, like the NTs. Basically, the biggest thing I wish I could change about myself is my difficulty with talking much in the early stages of any relationship. I feel like my interests might be "burdensome" to other people (because I am a naturally intense person) and so I have a really hard time being talkative until I have "figured out" what a person would and would not want to talk about and how deep they would tolerate going. I wish this could be easier!
