    Default success feels goooood

    yep, that's what it's like to be SEI 3w2. It feels good to succeed, so I do it. Failure does not feel good, so I avoid it. I love the feeling I get after I do a good presentation, or do something amazing and impress someone. Afterwards I act all humble like it wasn't that big of a deal, but my ego actually grows 10x its size.

    lol. Es lo mismo for me too. Well, I actually don't get *that* big of an ego boost from most things, but I get a nice ego boost from many things that I do successfully. More accurately, I get an ego boost from the notion that I'm good at a given thing, moreso than from having done said thing successfully, if that makes any sense. Sometimes I guiltily watch videos of myself singing or read glowing responses to my papers from professors just to remind myself that I'm pretty darn good at a few things. But I suppose I would get more of an ego boost from someone's feelings towards me. I'm not sure.
    Not a rule, just a trend.

    IEI. Probably Fe subtype. Pretty sure I'm E4, sexual instinctual type, fairly confident that I'm a 3 wing now, so: IEI-Fe E4w3 sx/so. Considering 3w4 now, but pretty sure that 4 fits the best.

    Yes 'a ma'am that's pretty music...

    I am grateful for the mystery of the soul, because without it, there could be no contemplation, except of the mysteries of divinity, which are far more dangerous to get wrong.

    Yea my validation comes from other people, I don't focus so much on the performance as I do the feedback I get.

    If you met me in person I'd probably seem more like a 9. I'm trying to seem more like a 3 though. It's tough being amazing

    When nine are healthy they integrate to three. I think if you are a three, the average three tend to focus on work and achievement, when they get really healthy, they try to relate their work to make more meaning out of it. like defending (like the trooper Six) their achievement and working towards something so they can be loyal to it.

    A girl I was dating said she was oh so great at sex etc, but she didn't do blowjobs.
    My reply: Oh I'm really romantic etc, I just will never take you out to dinner.

    I am the same way bro. I got a 3.63 this past quarter. My ego is like over 9000 right now. But I act humble.

    No offense, but you're the first "SEI" that I hear praising the concept of success. Are you sure you're not SEE instead? I can not imagine an SEI writing what you wrote, but according to my standards, it fits SEE perfectly.

    SEEs act humble?

    I think that sometimes when I'm in a high energy state I can act SEEish, but usually not.
