    You could definitely be ENTJ but much of what you say doesn't seem to discount ENFJ either. So ENXJ close on the T/F border. Final answer!

    You should consider 8 in your tritype though!

Also, even if you are fully aware of the cause and effects your actions have on another person (their hot buttons), that doesn't mean the Fe dom will avoid it. Fe doms are humans after all. If they know your hot buttons and want to piss you off, they will most likely do it. In this way, they can easily create conflict. The mean girl queen bee is stereotypically Fe dom.

    I typically hated being controlled or manipulated (or gently prodded) unless I actually really wanted to do something. So sometimes I would do or say whatever I wanted to regardless of how it might have affected the other people. It was never anything major. However, I used to cuss all the time or say inappropriate things just for kicks.
    Interesting, yeah that definitely makes sense.

    Oh okay, why did you stop doing that?

    Thanks for helping me out! Haha I'm definitely very 8ish and I relate very much to descriptions, but I have a 1 in my tritype. The 7 in my tritype definitely has an 8 wing though.

    I still hate being controlled/manipulated and am still fairly anti-authority at heart but my goal changed. I wanted to be taken more seriously and wanted more peace in my life. A lot of what I was doing was creating hell for the people I really cared about and purposely sabotaging all my relationships. I figured what was the point in that?

    Also, it turns out that I have PSTD with emotional triggers (from childhood) that never got diagnosed and treated until recently so that probably didn't help the situation.

    Oh okay, it's nice that you've gotten better with it.

    It's funny because I'm actually considering that for myself. When were you diagnosed?

    Oh really? I think a lot of the emotion criteria of the disorder can look a lot like depression or if the disorder doesn't go away and is left untreated, it can develop into depression. Just recently.

    This is part of the criteria for PTSD:

    Criterion C: avoidant/numbing

    Persistent avoidance of stimuli associated with the trauma and numbing of general responsiveness (not present before the trauma), as indicated by at least three of the following:

    Efforts to avoid thoughts, feelings, or conversations associated with the trauma
    Efforts to avoid activities, places, or people that arouse recollections of the trauma
    Inability to recall an important aspect of the trauma
    Markedly diminished interest or participation in significant activities
    Feeling of detachment or estrangement from others
    Restricted range of affect (e.g., unable to have loving feelings)
    Sense of foreshortened future (e.g., does not expect to have a career, marriage, children, or a normal life span)

    Criterion D: hyper-arousal

    Persistent symptoms of increasing arousal (not present before the trauma), indicated by at least two of the following:

    Difficulty falling or staying asleep
    Irritability or outbursts of anger
    Difficulty concentrating
    Hyper-vigilance
    Exaggerated startle response


    If one has specific triggers that they are unaware of and it keeps being triggered, the presenting symptoms can look like depression/anxiety or eventually become it (other anxiety/mood disorders are highly comorbid with PTSD). Even if the depression/anxiety gets treated, if the root problem isn't being resolved, the individual may keep having problems coping with things (for some, PTSD goes away on its own).

    If you had bullying on top of abusive parents, I wouldn't be surprised if you have/had it. But then again some people never develop it. I think it depends on a number of factors (level of resilency, level of optimism/hopefulness, level of support, whether or not one feels/is powerless in the situation, whether or not one had other risks/was already fragile from other hardships, amount of effective coping skills, how much one can understand and knows about the situation).

    I actually identify with a lot of the symptoms. Oh okay, I see. It would definitely be possible. Yeah, I understand that. What caused you to develop PTSD?
