This is a discussion on Insecurities. within the INFP Forum - The Idealists forums, part of the NF's Temperament Forum- The Dreamers category; I only really get insecure when it comes to my height, and my weight even though I don't weigh that ...

    I only really get insecure when it comes to my height, and my weight even though I don't weigh that much. My height I can't really do anything about, but being insecure about my weight forces me to get in incredible shape, so I guess it's not that bad. Everything else, I could give a fuck less about, or feel like I shouldn't be ashamed or embarrased about.

    My appearance, especially my acne.
    The poofiness of my hair.
    My tendency to say/do really stupid things when I'm in Ne mode.
    My lack of ability to initiate conversation (this is more of a reinforcer of my insecurities rather than an insecurity itself).
    My lack of drawing ability/clean writing.

    Those are the main ones I think.

    I have a severe insecurity of my ability as a writer. I tend to distrust the people who tell me otherwise.
    I have a severe insecurity about my intelligence. I feel I have wasted it.

    That resonates with me completely. I have a huge huge problem with that, and like @Cable says, I can't ever come to believe that I know something. I always say "I am interested" but never say "I know that" i don't. But I do find other people's assumptions about mastery in something very very annoying. Depth matters and most people think it's ok to just say "I know that" and never talk about it again.

    @Nienna Sorry to hear you relate to my post; I really wouldn't wish it on anyone. I'm surprised the military hasn't weaponized it.

I'm really insecure about what people think of me, (although I try to deny it to myself) but I've been trying to over come this insecurity by talking more in class, joining in group discussions and just saying whatever it is that I have on my mind without thinking of what people's reaction will be. Taking a philosophy class has really helped me because I am really set on my beliefs and I love sharing what I hold to be right.
    Another insecurity is as someone else said, not looking as good as I think I do. I also depend a lot on peoples evaluations of me, for example, I'm used to people coming up to me and telling me that I look attractive, but when people don't do that I start feeling unattractive and ugly. I have to understand that I'm not going to get compliments all the time and not to depend on people too much.
    It's crazy how my physical appearance affects me so much, like when I feel that I look good that I can say anything and just be myself, on my not-so-good-looking days, I kind of withdraw to myself and keep quiet.
    Another insecurity is that I LOVE to draw, but I can never come up with anything original from myself. I always have to look at another picture or something and draw. I wish that I could just come up with something by myself and I'm scared that I will never be a good artist because of my lack of creativity.

    I am extremely socially insecure and I think that my social insecurity comes from me judging people, I think that people judge me the same way I judge them. I need to stop!

    I wish that I could just let go of all my insecurities and just be who I am. I wish that I can be fearless. I guess that in order to become fearless, you have to experience the situation that fears you and face it and get over it.
    I feel like I relate a lot to you now...

    Some others of mine:

    Not feeling good enough
    That I can't be as beautiful as other people I see, that really depresses me even though I know looks are just superficial.
    Not being able to accept myself properly/caring too much what people think of me.
    My inability to make friends and keep the ones I have.
    I'm very insecure about my awkwardness, shyness and general social failure :(
    My body, I don't feel feminine enough.
    And funnily, I am very insecure about being insecure...I hide it as much as possible, it scares me to think that people can see how insecure I am!

    I'm am insecure about my intelligence, conversational skills, writing ability, appearance... the list goes on. I can never figure out if I have a realistic perspective of myself/my abilities, or if am too hard on myself. The worst is my insecurity about my writing, I've always dreamed of being an author, but honestly I'm never happy with anything I write. It's so discouraging. :/

    That's actually a good idea for a weapon of mass destruction. More poisonous than anthrax.

    I've been sitting around a lot lately.. while drinking copious amounts of doctor pepper whilst gaming for hours. I'm fairly insecure about this gut I'm growing and boobs sprouting from my chest. Diet + exercise being enacted soon.
