    Default Which type takes out of character huge changes, just to regret it later?

    Which types are most inclined to (out of character) suddenly leave a situation (school, job, sports) but come back short afterwards because they lack persistence and are overwhelmed by all the potential negativity that could come from the new situation dynamics and its people?
    Like, using an example from my teenage years, leaving a sports team because the trainer is an absolute piece of shit, and because they founded a new team close to your house, but then you start playing with the new team and you realise you left all your old teammates to jump into uncertainty. And you realise maybe the new pitch is closer to your house so your parents spend less money for gasoline, but you have no friends. So after a couple months you change back, but you get treated like a traitor for a long time.

    Impulsivity. I'm not sure this is type related, something tells me it isn't, but if I had to tie it to something socionics related, perhaps weak Ni (lack of foresight before acting) and/or irrationality (lack of planning before acting). But there could be other factors influencing impulsivity, such as hot-headedness, which doesn't seem type related.

    Btw, why are you asking this question? Is it to figure out your type? Because I don't see it as something specific to one type. I can see it as related to type, sure, but not defining of it. Also, if this behavior happened only a few times, it probably doesn't mean much imo.

    I bet SEEs would, although I would not have acted that way regarding that sports team situation!

    Many types would do this, if not all occasionally. SLI being one that does it time to time but not frequently.

    I do this too - ILI
    Common reasons for me:
    - People paranoia
    - Trying out better opportunities
    - Overall sluggishness/feeling the lack of meaning


    I normally wouldn't factor in the people I would "hurt" when it comes to my actions, but as for being traitor I rarely get treated as one since close relationships are important to me after all.


    Like people above said everyone could do that but you have to look into the reasons why they do it. In your specific example too it really depends on other factors but I would certainly take into account being labelled a traitor and would have an idea of the implications of the options, like I wouldn't be surprised that that would even happen to me later on (Ni Te).

    IEIs and to a lesser extent EIEs tend to have big grass-is-greener-somewhere-else attitudes; their idealism causes them to often pursue unrealistic goals, and their need for immediate resolution or closure (impatience) often prevents them from considering the negative consequences of their actions.

    I have done this many times. I can get dissatisfied with my current situation then get too emotional and do something impulsive.

    I also think all types can do this in different ways for different reasons.

    I agree that I could see a lot of different types doing this for various reasons

    Isn't that with respect to the MBTI system and not Socionics?

    Big Five, so yes, not Socionics.
