    Relax.

    I hesitate to even mention type here because I don’t want to give the impression that I believe his negative behaviors are inherent in the type and applicable to all others of the type. He’s the extreme. He has some serious health/mental health/addiction issues that affect his behavior and thinking. He’s the poster child for a totally whacked out, narcissistic, decompensating ESTP.

    ENTJ??? What??? No. The thinks short-term and tactically (Se) and ping-pongs one idea to the next, is easily distracted by something shiny (Ti). “Thinks” on his feet. Lacks any real strategy; doesn’t have the ability to formulate long-term solutions or see the pending consequences of his actions. Thrives on chaos. Lights dumpster fires. Doesn’t know how to solve a complex problem, just enjoys creating them. He also deeply cares about having people like him, constantly talks about his approval rating, size of the crowds, thinking the press is picking on him, tries to get others riled up about the other” (mean girling). It stinks of abnormal Fe.

    Side note: He’s decompensating. His behavior will be come even more erratic before he finally loses it. He brings to mind someone who is just rapid fire rambling bullshit, like a coke addict or speed freak. That’s probably the Adderall.

    Yeesh. It makes my head hurt to listen to him try to formulate a cogent thought or proffer a sound argument.

    Anecdotally - an ESTP Buddy of mine upon watching Trump on tv at one of his rallies said, “wow this reminds me of me before I got help when I was whacked out on coke”.

    Ya. Pretty much.

    People who have the 'can do' attitude will more likely succeed than people who don't, because they're willing to try and take the hit when they fail but then they get up and try again. People with 'can't do' attitudes won't try (moreso 'won't do') so they'll never succeed.

    There is empirical data backing up the fact that having a growth mindset (for others and yourself) as well as being able to delay gratification are two of the highest predictors of success in life.

    Agree 100%.

    One of my favorite questions to ask people when I was interviewing them for a management position was “tell me about something you failed at”. Those with a positive mind set would say something like “in a way it was good because I learned that ...” . They wouldn’t see it as failing, but as an opportunity to grow.

    There was a thread here in the subform on failure a few years ago. I posted this — from a talk I gave back when I was a corporate team trainer.



    I don't identify with failure; not at all. That is more about accepting that you've failed and overcoming it. That makes no sense to my way of thinking ... the conclusion is wrong because the premise is faulty.

    I don't equate not being successful at something I attempt with failing. It has no negative connotation for me. It's not something that has to be overcome - it's not a bad thing. Every time I "fail", it just means I'm one step closer to the right answer. I've eliminated a possibility. There is no doubt in my mind that I will ultimately succeed.

    My motto is "Think bigger. Do more." Because I'm not afraid to fail, I go big. I'm not always right the first time, but it doesn't slow me down. I can see in my mind how something should be. I'm focused on the end result. It's just a question of plotting the strategy of how to get there. "Failing" doesn't mean the idea isn't sound, it just means that the approach was wrong. There is always a "plan B" (C,D ...).

    I think that feeling of shame and vulnerability and fear of failure is more about how one thinks others see them, and letting that matter. It's about wanting to be accepted, and wanting to fit in. Wanting to not be seen as a "failure". That doesn't work with me. It doesn't matter to me if you think I'm wrong. It doesn't matter to me what you think, at all. And it certainly doesn't matter to me that you define it as failure.

    I think more like this:

    “Champions know that success is inevitable; that there is no such thing as failure, only feedback. They know that the best way to forecast the future is to create it.” Michael J Gelb

    "Failure is not the opposite of success, it's part of the success." Arianna Huffington

    Oh boy I’m in a relationship now. I’m quite giddy, and I’ve never felt so optimistic in my life, at least not in years.

    I am trying to determine the key notes for cologne/parfum that I like for myself.
    Fuck it's kind of a rabbit hole.
    I've landed on creed fragrances as they are well known and now I have to dissect the notes to determine the ones I'd like to try.
    It just made me think of Si though, like why is it I want "top tier" shit for everything. Why couldn't I be content with some cheap Brut or axe body spray haha - gross.

    Was at the Ducks game tonight. This happened during a tv time out. Kicked me right in the feels.
