a) I'm not terribly fond of anger. It usually results me in losing my self-control, leading myself to thinking I'm a bad person and wanting to change myself quickly.

b) Shame does get to me very deeply, but it may not show up on the surface. It often makes me feel low. Shame is pretty hard for me to explain.

Extra Question

Which of the following temptations do you find yourself acting upon the most? (And briefly state why)

- To constantly push yourself to be “the best”
- To be without needs, well-intentioned
- To replace direct experience with concepts
- To have an extreme sense of personal moral obligation
- To think that fulfillment is somewhere else
- To cyclically become indecisive and seek others for reassurance
- To overuse imagination in searching for yourself
- To avoid conflicts and asserting yourself
- To consider yourself entirely self-sufficient

I tend to overuse imagination in searching for myself. I can have a vivid imagination, so I could daydream at times.

I also tend to have a sense of personal moral obligation, as sometimes I need something to work for.

I'm hoping that this helps people figure out my core type and instinctual variants.

Anyway, it seems people are leaving this thread behind.


I currently type myself as a 4w5 with unknown vars, but I am unsure of my actual core type.

I do consider myself an idealist.

It's not just your thread. People are ignoring most threads.
I really don't know how they choose which threads to respond to and which not. but it's not "figures".

Bonus Info That May Help

I seem to be almost lost in my own fantasy most of the time, and don't consider myself practical.

I am inquisitive and curious, I like to find out things and acquire knowledge.

I am somewhat emotional with a subtle sensitive aura.

If annoyed, I might rebel as a defense. This is not natural, as I feel bad after that.
