    Default Changing into an ESTP?

    As a kid before the age of of 13-14 I was defiantly not an ESTP. I used to avoid people and day dream! Yes thats right I was an INTP

    I'd like to challenge those who think your MBTI type cannot change over time. I decided I didn't like who I was back then at all. I remember having very few friends...

    So I stopped being that daydreamer that was constantly thinking of all sorts of random ideas, started living in the now, became more aware of my surroundings and finally started interacting more with people... and you know what.

    ITS GREAT

    Heres to being ESTP!

    When I was younger I'm pretty sure I was an INTP.

    You don't have to challenge me, you and I agree on this theory. I used to be way more E only a couple of years ago, then evolved into the I that I am today. I was ESTP. I personally think you can change over time, but it's a more gradual process.

    What is the challenge exactly?

    I was quite different in many ways as a child too, I don't think daydreaming as a child means you are introverted or intuitive. I don't really think type changes, it just may not be easily observable until you fully develop.

    Yeppers! I was less extroverted and less here and now in my youth, probably because I had kind of a stressful childhood and just wanted to keep things together and as close to normal as possible. But once I got to be about in 7th grade I began to hatch. I had alot to say, I was always in a good modd, and I genuinely liked people and interacting with all kinds of situations. So here I am. God help you all.

    If you didn't like being that way then it was never a natural preference.

    Developing your social skills and Se is unrelated.

    Absolutely it takes time and you have to want the change on some level subconsciously or consciously.

    I still struggle with it sometimes and slip into long periods of introvertness but its much easier now and comes more naturally to me

    OK lets say you were an INTP.

    As an introvert why would you be so bothered by having few friends?

    As an intuitive why would your daydreaming bother you at all?

    What is more likely is you were a ESTP and it was your extraversion and Se that made you want to develop better social skills and awareness.

    You're here; you're not really ESTP.
