    I have a very strong feeling my MBTI type changed. What do you think? Was I an ESTJ/ESTP before?
    What is your Enneagram type?

    Regardless your case, there is theory that enneagram type takes over our personality in teenage and early 20ies.

    You didnt give enough info to say. What was more natural to you?
    I think your MBTI type cant change, but you can act differently then your true type.
    Some extraverted person can because of lack of self esteem, or depression, act introverted.. some Thinker may forse Feeling because people keep telling him he is too cold etc.


    I have similar case, I was extremely extraverted until age 15, then moderately until 19, and then I become lot introverted last 3 yrs, but I had much family problems that literaly prevented me from socializing for 1 year,.. and I am too sensitive person so I process slow with Fi, so maybe Ne was pushed by Fi-noone can process sadness with Ne, because my father died and they say then when people lose someone they change personality for months/years after. That was my case. I am more prone to thinking I am E because I feel more natural in Ne dominant then Fi dominant, but I am still not sure....

    Yeah, I highly doubt I'm extroverted now, it just doesn't make sense.

    I'm pretty sure my Enneagram type is 5. Not as sure as I am about my MBTI type, but it's most likely type 5.

    I don't get it, I used to be so social, used to be incredibly energized by people. I enjoyed their company, and they definitely enjoyed me. I couldn't care less about everything else when I was with people. And then... everything gradually changed. Now I'm more anxious with others, and it's more of a difficult task to be with people.

    Actually I'm not so sure I'm 5. I took tests, and I've received 3, 6, 1, and even 7.

    It's not people. Find an activity that requires so much focus on the activity itself that you're not allowed to let your mind wander, and you'll find out how introverted you really are. I work in a department store and I get drained in there, but it's not just from the people. The social interaction is just part of it. The constant claims for my attention from the external world are draining.

    Okay, you mean like video games? Yes, that gets me very focused. But so does playing sports.

    I think I may have figured this out!

    Prior to this extremely outgoing phase in my life, I was extremely stressed out, going through a tough period. I wanted to de-stress myself by hanging out with people almost 24/7.

    The reasoning behind this:
    I'm thinking that this was because my shadow is ESTP, and because I was under immense stress, I eventually took on the ESTP shadow personality (because if you knew me back then, you'd certainly say I was ESTP). Prior to the stress, I was ISTJ. After the ESTP phase, I reverted back to ISTJ. Thoughts on this?

    I'd say that that sounds very good. That may explain why you were extroverted before indeed.

    It's good that you thought of that, this may finally pin down this mystery for you!

    I dunno, it's sort of a symbolic thing for me. I've seen this thread around for a while. It's cool that you found some closure.

    EDIT: Also look at this. http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...tml#post630448

    Yeah, good to close this issue. This is a true reality check of MBTI (especially shadow types) for me. Thanks a lot to BlackCat, CJ99, and everyone else for the responses.
