ENTPs seem to be really emotionally balanced and I don't think they would score high on neuroticism in general and therefore, the facets under that. But maybe you do and can relate to the facets?

I'm not too sure, but even if you don't, which of these five do you have the most experience with?

Please do a 1-6.

As such:
1.
2
3
4
5
6


You get it.

These are the facets!


ANXIETY
ANGER
DEPRESSION
SELF CONSCIOUSNESS
IMMODERATION
VULNERABILITY



Just a little font to 'impact' your impressions of this thread...hehe. get it? Because the font title is ca--nevermind Ill stop

I'm confused, are we supposed to be ranking these neurotic traits from most often to rarely to never happening?

I'm very impulsive. I've been jumping ideas/careers/hobbies/etc way too quickly lately. I'm working on it.

1.) Impulsiveness
2.) Self-Consciousness
3.) Anger
4-5.) Anxiety/Depression
6.) Vulnerability

Impulsive is something I just am, I am self-conscious in the sense that I am aware of my abilities and limitations, anger because I held onto alot of anger when I was young, Anxiety/Depression is new to me but I've experienced it very recently and it is not fun (they went hand in hand for me), and Vulnerability last because I don't consider it a problem but I do not let myself become vulnerable and I like it that way.

Ok, so I checked. It says neuroticism is the tendency to experience negative emotions. So how we react to stress and threats.

I'll tell you the negative emotions I feel the most. And by negative, I mean those which break my good mood. So I must exclude for example self consciousness. Because questioning myself and my responsibilities doesn't break my good mood. It breaks the mood of those who don't like to question themselves. I like it.

See? Those predetermined traits are unstructured. Anyways.

So, 1st would be stagnancy, I feel bad when I kick the heels of my thoughts. Maybe it's about feeling trapped. Not to be able to solve an issue, to see an exit. Maybe it's just that. When I'm angry, it's generally because I feel trapped by idiots. In their stupid world. I don't really feel bad when I'm angry, rather, I let another negative emotion express itself, and that's hopelessness. I guess. Hopelessness is the worst. But that's also because it's what I experience the least. By definition, I'm not neurotic, I'm emotionally stable. So maybe it works backwards. If I avoid negative emotions, then the one I avoid the most is the most subject to hurt. I guess there's no point exploring the neuroticism of non neurotic people.

Hopelessness relates to depression. You seem very hostile which is totally reasonable considering how much stupider people are in comparison. But feeling contempt, irritable, angry, hostile is still negative emotion, but I do not categorise all these facets within neuroticism, but mostly I put them under the negative agreeableness factor.

Sometimes it is good to be "neurotic" for a short period of time, that is your suffering and your time to grow as a person. I have seen some very stable people, I consider myself one of them, and the thing is that they lack emotional depth. Psychopaths for example are the most emotionally stable of all types.
Its a good thing to be resilient, assertive and tough and still being able to experience full range of emotions. This is not to be confused with people that only pretend to have these positive attributes but are very vulnerable on the inside. Also, full range of emotional experience does not mean you are vulnerable and emotionally unstable- you can see the difference, if you go read the comments in the INFP subforum, some are very mature and wise, while there are some that should consider death to be a gift.


Back to me:

1) Depression
2) Anger
3) Self conscious
4) Impulsiveness
5) Anxiety
6) Vulnerability

I mostly struggle with depression, because I have little success to show, and people around me bore me, so I don't socialise as much to increase my positive attitude. I used to be impulsive but it got fixed with long depression and cognitive development. I feel bodily anxiety because I want to contain my anger, so I start shaking a bit. Otherwise anxiety is very low unless I smoke weed. Yeah, I think all these facets can have strong to mild correlations in between.
ENTPs should on average have a higher score in impulsiveness due to exploration drive (N+E), higher levels of anger due to disagreeableness (T), anxiety due to low self-direction (P), maybe self-conscious and or depression also due to higher intelligence and introversion (N+I)
