Thread: ISFjs feeling insecure and anxious

  1. #1

    Default ISFjs feeling insecure and anxious

    Is it a usual to feel insecure most of the time? About anything in general.

    I don't think that's type related, except perhaps in that people of different types are more likely to feel insecure about different things. Insecure ESI's perhaps feel uncertainty about the future?

    Anyways, have you read any ESI descriptions, by any chance? I'd recommend reading some SEI descriptions as well.

    I think we can all go through phases in our lives that make us feel insecure about different things. It doesn't mean that we can't overcome these insecurities, and better ourselves.

    Back on topic, I know one ISFj who was exceptionally beautiful, with great aesthetic taste, but she would never allow herself to be photographed, because she was so worried and concerned about how the picture would turn out.

    I also know another ISFj who would refuse to participate in gym class (despite being athletic) because she did not want people to judge her on her athletic ability. She would get so anxious and upset that it would make her sick to her stomach. She also worried about her weight a lot, even though she was thin as a rail. I think these insecurities were bought on by deeper reasons like relationships and family issues, and she's a lot better about that stuff now, as far as I know.

    Yes, some types are generally slightly more insecure about for example interacting with other people, usually they're INTjs, INTps, ISFjs, ISFps.

    I'm insecure but you can't tell by looking at me. I think everyone is. I think types just vary by what they're insecure about as others have already mentioned.

    For instance, put me in a situation where you have some emotional reaction to me, but don't vocalize it or clearly display it on the surface. I'll flee the situation as fast as possible; just can't handle it.

    There are thousands of things to be insecure about, and a thousand different ways for it to show itself, and a bunch of different function combinations that are more likely to make certain types insecure about certain things.


    Silly question. It needs to be more specific...if it's answerable at all.
