I have lots of questions - I hope that's okay. What kind of acting were you doing and why did you stop? Did you like it? Why did you do it? What do you think of acting? I'm also curious about how you realized you're extroverted instead of introverted, if you don't mind?
Hey, sorry I didn't see your post! I've been on another mbti website. Well, I started out doing plays and theatre stuff but my plan was to get into television acting. I did more comedy stuff than drama. I just stopped because I didn't feel interested in it anymore, really. I don't know. I didn't feel like it fit me anymore. I still like it. I also stopped because the business is very hard to get into, and I just wasn't dedicated enough to pursue it aggressively. I love acting though. I got into screenwriting after that but I haven't been able to do any of that because I've been stuck at home with a chronic illness for two years. But, if I could have whatever I wanted as a career, I would like to write my own stuff and act in it.
I realized I was extroverted mostly by analyzing the functions, rather than the types. Dominant Ne explains so much of my life history, and inferior Si explains exactly how I act during times of stress. I also just didn't relate to the INFP over sensitivity to emotions and head in the clouds, seeming detached ness from reality. I've always felt like I very much wanted to be part of reality, not that I wanted to escape it. If I had a choice, under ideal circumstances (I.e. Not being sick), I would much rather hang out with people at a party or something than sit at home listening to music or reading.
