Hi, I'm really sorry to have make a thread all about me, but I'm really confused as to what type I am! And as I find myer briggs so fasinating, I really would like to put myself into one of the 16 types. Which I appreciate may be a bit of an impossible task, but oh well. Would be really grateful for any help
Basically the first time I took a myer briggs test was at the age of 15. I came out as INTP. I'd just finished school, where I definitely felt alienated, didn't fit in. It probably described me accuarately. I wasn't sociable, had a network but wanted to keep myself away from afterschool activities/going out with friends because I felt like I was superior, or just enjoyed my own thoughts... I spent all my days obsessed with dreaming about being 18, being at a top university to be bothered about hanging out and being a normal 15 year old. I later dropped out of this top university as I found it boring after meeting everybody, and no freedom.
Before this time, I'd gone through periods of being outgoing or not so. It seemed that some places sucked out my outgoingness and I'd become v. quiet. Other times I'd be very cheeky, calculating and always coming up with clever plans to do something bad to adults etc. or win something. I'm not brilliant at talking to some new people, yet others, straight away can become so easily really good friends. People that aren't threatening.
When I started college I decided I wanted to make a change. I was harsh on myself and was desperate to be outgoing, look perfect etc. I made lots more friends, and perhaps if these people had been at school, maybe I would've done so before. However, now I look back and believe if I was at school now, I would've made lots of friends. I learned how to speak to people, etc. etc. and when I took the MBTI I came out as an ENTP, and this described me perfectly.
Now, once again... I'm unsure. Am I the inventor? Or am I an ENFP or ENFJ or ahhh I don't know?! Or am I still an I? I'm such a people pleaser. I have tons of friends from all over, and try and please them, sort them out. I try and avoid hurting peoples feelings etc. and careful what I say. I don't like getting into arguments or conflicts with friends incase they fall out with me. I have had massive problems with relationships. I know straight away whether I'm interested or not, and couldn't bare to get in a relationship with someone I was not sure about, or that my head didn't aprove of just incase I'd miss the chance of somebody else perfect coming along. I'm getting a bit better on this though...
sorry it's long and v. self centrered, any help, appreciated
