    Default Kelly McGonigal: Good Example of a Female SLE

    I am currently reading her book The Willpower Instinct. She has done a lot of great work on willpower, stress, and self-compassion. A good example of a well-adjusted SLE, IMO:



    "How could we forget those ancient myths that stand at the beginning of all races, the myths about dragons that at the last moment are transformed into princesses? Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love."

    She also has a twin sister named Jane. I don't know if they're the same type, though:

    ^ I can kind of see it, actually. I liked "Hideaway" a lot. Not familiar with her otherwise.

    Well, what then? She's ESXx something. Not LSE, IMO, so maybe SEE or ESE as other possibilities.

    not LSE, SEE or delta F. P types are more possible.

    Your thoughts are similar to mine. To tell you the truth, I also typed mostly based on appearances, and she reminds me of several people I've typed SLE.

    Of those, I think SEE fits best. I agree she seems irrational > rational.
