    Default Changing....

    How do you think you've changed over the past 10 years? Did you used to be a lot different?

    i've changed a ton in the last 10 years. 10 years ago i was 34 and had just given birth to my first child. i had been married for 4 years. i was a social worker in an early intervention program doing work completely unsuited to me. working towards achieving the vision that i and my husband had put together in our 20's. and, i had incorrectly typed myself (just keepin it real for socionics purposes)

    today i have two children, am working as a director, single, own my own home, teaching social work students, contemplating whether the vision is really all that i thought it would be, and developing a comprehensive understanding of myself, my life, the lives of those connected to me, and my relationship with my creator. looking at how i can help and mentor others, and, being correctly typed looking for how i want to live the rest of my life, keeping in mind how much control i really have over things.

    10? How about two. I've changed so much since coming to university that it's astonishing to me. Certain essential parts of me have remained static, and in a lot of ways the outer shell has remained largely the same, but I sometimes have a hard time recognizing myself. Actually, even when I look at picture of myself over the past two years it amazes me to see the change. I see it in my face and I feel it in the memories I hold. I'm not sure if I can express it tangibly, but they say you go through drastic change in your late teens and into your twenties. Whoever they are, they have my vote.

    Absolutely zero. The only distinct change I remember in my personality was when I was around 13 (nothing dramatic, I just became more stereotypically male in character), but from there on my personality has remained exactly the same.

    I'm with fabio. I haven't really changed much.

    Oh wait, I can only eat HALF a cheesecake by myself now. Before, it was 1 whole. My sweettooth's hold on me is weakening.

    Well just to be clear, I didn't just mean a slice, I meant a whole fucking pie.

    Well, i'm 17 today and at age 7 I think I was different than I am now, though all the differences are all mostly attibuted to maturation.

    Ten years ago I was in a contract in South Africa, now I'm in the UK.

    I haven't changed at all in character or personality, except that maybe - probably with help from socionics - my Fi dual-seeking is less often very obvious.

    I haven't changed much physically, I can even wear the same suits as then (although maybe I should get new ones anyway). Except for my eyesight, which has gotten slightly worse.

    I was 13 10 years ago. A LOT has changed. I mean I'm still the same person, but my emotional control and my attention to ethics and empathy has improved a lot. Although in my mind I still have a hell of a way to go.

    I feel at times as though I mean well, and I'm actually a very deeply caring person, but I so frequently seem to get it wrong and hurt people unintentionally. Possibly a lot of this current concern stems from a current relationship issue, but I still want to work on it.

    On top of that, I think the thing I am most proud of is my ability now to have the confidenence to take risks to ensure I am in the right relationships. Risk takeing might sound like a weird thing to attribute to maturity, but I found that I was a doormat a lot more often when I was younger due to conflict issues and not wanting to hurt feelings. I occasionally have the guts to say no these days, and even though it feels very foreign, it tends to help at times.

    I think the fact that I am aware that I still have a lot more maturing to do is enough said really. Back when I was 13 I thought I knew everything

    Physically - in ways that I believe to be standard. Otherwise, I'm probably just more aware of who I am, more confident. I used to define myself too much by other's standards and feelings; I didn't put much stock in my own feelings. I'm way more confident socially, but that's not so much improved social skills as just not caring as much how I come across to others. I'm less responsible in terms of doing what I 'should'.

    10 years ago I was 11. Instead of being horribly depressed, lazy, antisocial and being stuck in school, I'm now slightly emotionally unstable, lazy, only social with specific people and stuck in a dead-end job. Gee, so much has changed.

    Ive done most of my changing in the past 3 or so years.

    after about age 6 i became more hedonist. Up until age 13 I was very imaginative and produced a lot of art. I was interested in academics history and govt until maybe 17. after that it was all INTj until about 3 years ago when I began to spend more time doing day to day tasks, I am more practical now and play more of a mediatory role in situations instead of an argumentative one.

    I tried that, but I found that I did a better job at changing my own diapers than anyone else ever could.

    I`ve come to feel comfortable in wanting my own space. I no longer rely only preconstructed systems to know what to do and how to feel about things. I am less friendly, but my capacity for true feeling has increased tenfold. I am more confident, and more focused; before a small obstacle would throw me off while now I tend to keep moving.
