    Default When you're under stress do you act more like your mirror?

    Or if not, is there another type that you tend to act more like when you're under a lot of stress? Maybe this is related to subtype or DCNH or dual-type theory?

    I'd say I'm most like ILI when I'm stressed. My ILE-like behavior happens when I'm almost euphoric.

    EDIT: Not that that's anything but stereotype... *ahem*

    That tends to happen if you're thinking has not much basis in reality.

    interesting. I'm trying to think what I'm like. I don't even know. lol I'm guessing I probably pull into myself more. Take refuge in Ni or something. So maybe ILI?

    Yes, I believe I do behave more like an SLI when under stress.

    Same pattern in me - LII-like under stress, LIE-like when feeling good.

    Except I think the implication is the reverse. You're pressed to use your id functions by interacting with the opposite quadra, so when you act like your quasi you become stressed. When you act out of your ego, it's healthier and feels better.

    I agree with this. The way you're acting causes the stress, not the other way around... (and making full use of your creative function, I suppose, causes euphoria.)

    yeah it's counter intuitive...you use your id functions to counter stress but they actually produce more stress.

    i think this would be more likely to happen if you over do it. i think brief periods of using your quasi's ego functions is healthy.

    I don't think that you can say... since people have complete different reactions to stress.

    I become even more of a hermit when I'm under stress, even to the extent that it can begin to harm my health (I don't restock on essentials, eat, get exercise, etc). That's from work-related stress. I was going to say IEI because of that

    Mmm...I can see this tendency in myself actually--that is, IEI when stressed and IEE when I've got that natural high goin' on :wink: (I consider myself EII)

    I think I act like my mirror (ENFp) when I'm in a good mood. More extroverted and freewheeling

    Stress for me = SEI/IEI-like behaviour. In the last two years I've moved house three times, divorced and been through another major break up, changed friendship groups, been made redundant and started a new university course. During the most stressful of these times, I've become much more reactive to potential stressors, got involved with drugs/alcohol and withdrawn more from social contact.

    I'm all good now though It would be interesting to see others' typical reactions to stress.
    My reaction is pretty much to act crazy, hide away and do stupid things.

    Yowee!

    Re the OP, I'm not sure if I'd resemble my mirror. I might get emotional outburst-y and reactive, but sometimes I just get non-communicative. Though when I'm non-communicative, I may explode if you touch me in any way. :redface: I might stick my head in the sand, and continue on as if all is fine. Occasionally, I get really industrious, though I may explode if you touch me in any way. :redface: Who knows?

    Do Socionics sources say anything about stress behavior? In MBTI they talk about moderate stress making you stick to just your 1:st function and heavy stress (death of loved one, serious illness etc.) making you become your opposite type (conflictor).

    Hmm I suppose it depends on how much stress. My life is pretty stress free, so if I do have the minor amounts of stress that occasionally come up, I become more Si seeking.

    There was a time in my life when I was under an extreme amount of stress and I became a neat freak.

    It is and someone should do something about it. I've been reading a lot of autobio. lately of people I VI so that I can get a first hand insight as to what happends to the human mind and I want to see if it's tied to type, which I strongly believe it is. I hope, that along with my studies, I will be able to utilize this information.
