    You don't need to feel sorry for anyone.
    If they do that, perhaps it's because it's as meaningful to them as your process is to you.

    It sounds to me that you view the self more as a force of will and choice, the active force of self (which is traditionally more of a J approach to identity), rather than something garnered through self-inflection and the accumulation of evidence -- internal and external -- that might shed light on who one is (traditionally more a P-style approach).

    Sounds pretty much like Directing vs Informing styles to me.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
