This is my first post here on Typology Central. Altough It has been quite a long time that I've been reading it . I'll go straight ot the point:
I'm an ESTP (confirmed, blablah) but for 6 or 7 or months now, I've been unable to access my normal-awesome ESTP mode: I go either INFJ and then ISTJ and then go back to ESTP mode, that ESTP doesn't last for too long (a couple of hours). Now we all know that shadow episodes are triggered by heavy stress or depression. Only I have one little problem here: I'm Not depressed n nor stressed! Buy you could very well be depressed and not admitting it, would you tell. The answer well , is simply: I'm not, I've been depressed before and I know how it feels: I'm not. I have a healthy and activ lifistyle.
The things is that, those shadow episodes are not triggered without reason, actually I have one weird problem that has begun 6 or 7 months ago: Everytime there is some background noice (siren screams, birds singing, peopel talking during a lecture at college), OR everytime some relative is talking to me, yeah you read it right, like my mum telling me that "I should shave my beard", there is some very weird irritation or uncomfort going on inside me, like I can't stand whats happening. Ahd so I go into INFJ mode.
I'm aware what's happening to me doesn't make sense at all, and therefore is all the more distressing to me. The funny thing is that this irritability doesn't happen at all when I'm in my shadow mode.
So yeah, any suggestion/advice? Anyone exprienced something similiar? Been trying to get rid of that thing, I'm feeling like i'm running out of solutions..
