    I know a lot of SJs, and my whole theory is that it must suck to be Se or Si dom where Ne or Ni would be more useful, and vice versa.

    Other types always see something about types they're not a member of as "sucking" because they don't like to operate that way. However, I also recognize that sometimes being an NF sucks (everyone inevitably hurts your feelings, no one seems to understand you, and if you do feel depressed there's a nasty little voice in your head informing you that everyone thinks you're pathetic). I've heard other types say that sometimes being an XX sucks, and the reasons they give usually aren't the ones I would have expected.

    I would think that it would suck to be an SJ because they get a lot of crap about being boring, and it's usually not true.
    Skylights is probably right, the wording was a little "controversial" but you're right too. this thread was made because my perception, as an ENFP, of what being SJ makes it seem like it would be very stressful and I can't contemplate what having it as a first function would be like. contrary to my original hypothesis, it appears that Si is relaxing to ISJs (and ESJs) and there natural perception of NPs seems more like "how to remember to do anything? how to do go about living life with such little consistancy and still manage to survive?" in short, inferior functions are friggin confusing to everyone XP

    Actually, I can relate to this in some way as well. Especially as a child, I would freak out not knowing what other people wanted from me because I wanted to make them happy and appear competent in their eyes. And having no rules and guidelines makes me wonder 'Am I doing this right?" And no feedback in addition to that really freaks me out. I assume the worst, and it gnaws at my brain.

    I don't like strict rules, but guidlines are very helpful, especially when first starting out. I'm not like an SP where I can just jump into the thick of battle and magically know what to do.

    I don't like too many rules, and I'm an SJ. I prefer guidelines and the ability to use my judgement.

    I think the need for strict rules is more a preference of less disciplined SJs who don't know how to function without them

    I just started another thread...I think it's a matter of experiences in life that dictate how you react to freedom. My ISFJ friend grew up in this small town outside of Philly. It's pretty much all he knows - he hasn't lived elsewhere. Now that I live up in the area, and I crack on the town- he gets mad and feels he has to insult Philly.
