My estp insecure buddy/neighbor for 5 years is losing it. Oldham claims them to be self-confident, however he's admitted his lack of self-confidence to me and another close friend. Unfortunately over time, he's gone completely insecure about my relationship with him ( polr?), which pisses me off because we obviously have 5 years of loyalty and friendship in which he seems to have forgotten (weak suggestive ?).
A few questions are what I have.
1. Are all those who are weak in the need present time emotional support? I still have appreciation and love for friends that I have spent time with for up to 3 years in elementary school! Therefore, this is obviously something I can't understand.
2. How can I up an estps confidence? Tell them not to care about what other people think?
Hell, what's the reason for someone's self-confidence to be lowered in the first place? Is his hidden agenda/polr not being fed enough or what?
3. What's the easiest way for you to identify estps? I just want to make sure not to be so leisurely distant with these types.. if I care to.
Thanks. No one has to answer all these questions, individual ones in which you feel you can contribute are fine.
