Urh, what? Personality gone KABOOM.
Does anyone ever feel insecure and then blank on things to say, or find it hard to connect with people you are compatible with?
Recently, the past year or so, I have found it hard to open up around people, it's like I feel I am fabricated or like the zest has been pulled out of me, and I don't feel free, it's 'ok' with some people, I mean I can talk to them (but it still feels forced, I feel unreal - I am not being fake, I just feel suppressed, like I can't be myself, like I have lost myself). But then I feel like *AH* , around my quadra, and I withdraw and only do things I know will lead to people accepting me, which is just asking questions and being polite and hardly any self-expression and there is no being a typical silly, playful IEI (like the old days!). It's like this with all my friends.
Do any IEIs relate to this? Or can anyone see why this is happening?
I think this post is kind of dumb, the whole thing is, I would just appreciate it if anyone could help me understand this. What is going on lol? It's like my personality is evaporating, or being pushed inside, suffocating everything haha. I'm not generally depressed or anything, though sometimes I get pretty down over this shizz.

I agree with Herzy. There was a time when I could somewhat relate Dinki, but I find that Interactions flow a lot more naturally if you clear all the clutter out (Socionics would be a good example), because it mostly serves to jumble things up in most cases. I do find that Socionics can be a useful tool at the end of the day; it can help you to understand things when something worth noting comes up, but over thinking it usually serves to nothing productive. Life is a learning ground, so go ahead an experience things.

It is interesting to note that much of the theory states that the types that are best for one another tend to be naturally drawn to one another, anyway.
So then, what is the point of socionics?...
