    i don't really think so but i am not sure. in those specific circumstances you stated i wouldn't be inclined to do anything other than what i usually do. i support women's rights, but i am not obnoxious. (the obnoxious part of this and most other "rah rah rah" groups is a large part of why it bothers me, i think). i take the bus, i have long-ish hair and i wear what people describe as businessy kind of clothes. or robes.

    i'm not that concerned if i fit into a stereotype or not, considering i really enjoy mbti i think it is a given that i actually don't mind it at all since "isfj" is probably the most overshadowing stereotype i could be a part of as it encompasses the reasons why i am the way i am.

    i think to me it is just the difference between people believing what they like, and people being extremely pretentious and obnoxious about what they believe. i don't believe in abortion but i am not going to put up pictures of dead fetuses while people drive their cars. i'm considered "bisexual" but i am not going to go dance on a pride float and announce it to the world. to be honest my sexual orientation isn't something that is even relevant to me.

    i think i said it best in another forum: opinions are great as long as you don't force them on other people.

    You sound like an interesting person. It looks like you outline a clash between personal values and society. Is your annoyance related to the difference between the stereotypes society expects of your sexual orientation and who you really are as a person?

    For example, if society expects same sex couples to drive vans, wear flannel shirts, cut their hair short and loudly support feminism, you push back with equally force because it challenges your independence as a thinking, free-choosing, woman?

    In the same way, if you do anything that was co-incidentally similar to society's stereotype, you might feel equally offended because your expression of free choice and the joy of being who you are, has been overshadowed. So instead of people seeing a choice, you imagine they'll just see a stereotype?

    well as a woman i think it would be stupid not to believe in women's rights. i more or less get irked by people who say things like what i said above, "women can do everything men can do, women are the best, men are evil, equality!!!!" because it just drives me nuts. women and men are not equal. the way a woman's brain works is vastly different from the way a man's brain works. women are not physically stronger than men. there are some things women cannot do. the same thing is true of men as well. there are some things men cannot do. women are not the best. men are not evil. refusing to acknowledge that women and men are different is not the same thing as being pro-women's rights. it is just hypocritical and retarded. the whole scope of some of these ideas i hear is degrading men because "they degraded us first". it is ridiculous. those are my opinions basically, i was mostly using this as a platform to try and highlight what i meant by getting impressions off of concepts. i don't think i can verbalize the difference in a way that will make it seem like it really isn't an opinion. oh well.

    feminism is awesome, embrace it. woman are still degraded and demeaned around the globe. I myself dont quite identify with the usual "crazy feminist" groups...But I am one in a different way. Woman are still treated unfairly.

    They work 2/3 of the world's working hours and make 10 percent of the income. The United Nations estimates that its a loss of 11 trillion a year. 2 million women a year suffer genital mutilation. There are 12.3 million slaves on the planet, more than we've ever had and most of these people are women and children. So, yes embrace that fire in your soul that says, things arent right! We all need to be more disgusted by the degradation that women still face today. Not even to mention how women are objectified. In our country 1/4 women is molested or raped. I mean there is STILL so much shit going on. Yay, for standing up for women. (Though women do crimes against themselves as well...so Im not blaming men entirely.)

    You sound alot like me,i can be rather stubborn and controlling at times, especially with my children.But i agree that there does need to be a degree of control and discipline in martial arts and particularly when teaching.I really enjoyed reading your blog.

    I liked reading this. I enjoyed the way you expressed yourself.

    It seems like if anything you have a lot of self control and want the same from others. It may not necessarily make you extraverted to be a teacher. Perhaps, your just a very confident introvert.

    In reply to your last two paragraphs, I'd like to add that the enneagram is also a helpful starting point in observing your motivations and behaviors. MBTI is more of how you act or make decisions and the enneagram why you make those decisions (for you, I'd suggest looking up enneagram types 6 and 9).

    While you can't change your type, you can definitely increase your awareness of self-defeating behaviors, futilities in thought, or preoccupying fears, in order to know what to let go of. Congratulations on taking the first step to self-discovery. (:
