Yeah, great advice, suppress your inner self, conform to society... I can just feel the healing begin.
I was always under the impression that I was supposed to have a lot of friends. When I finally figured out that wasn't true, it was a huge relief.
I wonder how different my "affectation" as some might call it (referring to my INTJ female traits) would be perceived in ANY other culture in the world, particularly European culture. Do I feel like such a freak simply because I live in the "Extroverts-are-us, super macho" United States, particularly the South? I think INTJ females would be far more accepted in Germany, for example. Thoughts? How much is the development, application and understanding of MBTI affected by culture.
I had a CBT shrink once. I think they had some good, practical strategies.... but, Wow. Graphs. Just choose your own adventure, I guess. If you choose X, flip to the next chapter in your life, because it will definitely happen exactly the way that you planned Yeah, if I had a shrink who started to show me graphs, I would be out the door too.
