    Default Did you experience any internal resistance when you first discovered your type(s)?

    How did you feel when you found your best matched type(s)? Did you accept it? Did you resist a little bit and then accept it? Are you still resisting it in some way?

    I mean I was hesitant to actually believe I'm not an introvert. But I slowly realized that I'm actually not an introvert and ENFP fits me better than my previous typings of INFJ and INFP. I wouldn't call it resistant though.

    I'm not even sure if this is my real type lol. I sort of kind of accepted it at this point, though there's a part of me that still thinks that it's wrong and I have some sort of bias/misunderstanding that I'm not addressing. I resisted my mbti type because I assumed just because I could empathize with others and came across as a kind person that I couldn't be a Ti dom. With enneagram, I didn't really resist being a 6, just didn't see it initially. I resisted the 7 wing for awhile because of not relating to the id, but understand why it fits better that what I had previously typed.

    I'm still resisting I think, but more in a "what if I'm wrong" sort of way rather than "6w7 sp/so INTP is the stupidest type to exist" sort of way.
