    MBTI has destroyed my life.

    Not literally
    but i used to have high hopes and shit and always used to think that hard work can get me to places and even surpass those with a natural talent for it, but then the MBTI came along and ever since then i've been trying to see how i can change it and my hopes have gone DOWNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN. I am an ISFP, i can't be a strategist like i've always wanted to because i ain't naturally born at it (INTJ). I can't be (ISTP).

    Now i'm always watching shows, reading books thinking of what should be but not.

    You are an ISFP but always wanted to be an INTJ? Is this what you are saying?
    Explain yourself. Although I know how hard is to do it at times.

    Nah...i meant before i knew about this (MBTI)

    I always wanted to be something that had a lot of strategy and such and desired to be very intellectual. Friend gave me a test who ironically is a INTJ and i did it, i came out an ISFP. Didn't look into a lot at first but then searched and i found out what i wanted to be was (ISTP/INTJ) as those are the really intellectual and innovative types.

    Isfp is just a type. You yourself are much bigger, much more than that. I identify as an infp; I don't think this precludes me from logic, from enjoying sensory pleasures, or from planning. You can be anything. You are what you believe yourself to be; personality relies on a conscious understanding of self. What are you really limited by?

    The truth of what you are is much greater, much more intellectual, strategic, whatever the trait.... than any personality type. When you experience the reality of your true self... you see that knowing who you really are, and genuinely believing in this real self, is much more powerful than any ideal image.

    I don't know, but I think hard work and good research will get you to your goal eventually. Maybe you will need a little more time or more effort, but still it is not impossible.

    the worst thing about all of this is how MBTI is pretty accurate.

    I usually test as a ISFP or INFP.

    But can you elaborate?

    I think MBTI is "where you start" in life. If you work on yourself, you can improve yourself. You cannot be someone else. But you can improve. And beside, don't forget : MBTI is ONLY a THEORY. It's not the word of God, ok ?

    I added it above, sorry about that, I tend to add to things after I post them...

    To be honest I respect people who work hard to achieve their goals, more than those who are naturally talented in what they do.

    MBTI is not THAT accurate, since everyone differs to some degree from the people who are his own type.
