Lately I have been wondering whether or not I am one. First of all, my sense of humor is most likely not considered politically correct, so I usually refrain from expressing myself, not out of fear of offending people, but because I can't handle the stress of the arguments that follow their reactions. To me, everyone else seems uptight, although they call me ignorant and immature. I don't act like I take most situations seriously, but this does not necessarily represent my heartfelt views. I hate debate, it's exhausting, but somehow always find myself involved in one because I feel so compelled to get to the bottom of misconceptions or issues that keep reappearing. I drive myself crazy for days thinking about the logic of every single thing I said. I usually end up feeling misunderstood and underestimated. This makes me indignant and furious at the other person. This is not because I care about what they think, but because it causes me to question what I think about myself. I've become increasingly isolated because I've realized that most other people bring nothing but disruption to my peace of mind. I hate decorum and expectations and people trying to control other people even in the most insignificant of ways. I hate how most people focus on the subjective connotations of your words rather than the actual meaning behind them and on the intent of what you're trying to say (e.g. "stop trying to sound intelligent"). I admit this is partially a rant, but it's also got me thinking that I don't sound like what my impression of an ISTJ is. The functions are all a blur no matter how much I learn of them, and on the official MBTI I scored 50/50 on P/J. I'm just not sure what I am anymore. What questions did you ask yourself when you decided you were your type?
