Hi there personalities,
I've been pondering on finding an answer to whether its okay if your personality changes after certain events, traumatic or non-traumatic.
When I was 15~16 years old I had a pretty rough time. Family issues, friends lost, school went terrible just to name a few factors.
From being an ESFJ, one who was always very in the middle of the attention and sensitive to what others were feeling and doing. I became much more Introverted and Intuitive and started to think a hell lot more. In other words I became a INTJ.
Now I'm 22 years old and when I think about the past it feels weird to me. As if that life of mine was a whole different person. I feel disconnected and sometimes feel like there is a split in my personality, like there is a hole in my past. I worry about if it's okay to experience these feelings and if it's better if my personality should be more ESFJ because this is who I "truly" was, or am actually.
