Yeah, it sounds plausible, but the actual mechanics of it I think would mean getting 'Enlightened', as in doing a full on meditation practice where you dedicate every spare moment of your life to it. I say this because the cause of my issue is with family and upbringing and my way of re-enacting the issues in my everyday life. I can't sustain the energy required to change those beliefs.
I have read up on ACT, that's where all the 'get into hobbies' comes from. I meditate and have done a lot in the past.
No, things are that serious. Basically, they give you more than is humanly possible to complete. If you are a perfectionist (I am), this is torture. There is no way to complete EVERYTHING, let alone complete it perfectly. So, you basically have to prioritize. Because you are a human, you also have to make some social time a priority. I never realized how much of a requirement that is in life until I went to law school. It was a method of recharge for me.
Of course ENTJs are well suited for trial! Do we not love to be in the spotlight? Especially when we are making rational arguments? GAD...I don't know much about it, but law school creates tons of anxiety, so I can understand your hesitation. I would imagine you'd want to make sure it is under control first.
I'm not sure exactly what you are asking. Are you INTJ or ENTJ? A lawyer is one of the recommended careers for an ENTJ. I don't really wish to be anything else than what I am disposed towards. However, I do have passions that I wish I could make a living out of that I just can't. For instance, I was a music major. I love it. But it's not practical. However, I also am analytical and love to come up with arguments. I love language and logic, and I also love the idea of counseling people with my knowledge, so I've had a great experience entering the legal field. I'm also not sure why being an ENTJ as opposed to an INTJ has given me a particular struggle. Maybe I am misunderstanding your questions.
Why are you dragging your heels by the way? Don't go to law school half hearted. It is a life changer that requires tons of energy. Don't do it unless you are fully committed. Also, if you take the LSATs, study hard and take them as many times as you can until you get a good score....not for entry into law school, but for the scholarships. I got a decent enough score for entry first try, but I wished I would have focused on a superb score for scholarship because man do those loans hurt now.
Not in any way. I am definitely a solid introvert. My confidence and broad knowledge base allows me to come across as an extrovert at times. I even like public speaking. But being around people definitely saps me. If given the choice of living in a big city or a deserted island for the rest of my life I would ask if I would be provided with sunblock.
This weekend I am going camping with my wife and a bunch of her friends. The idea of being trapped, in close proximity to semi-strangers, with nothing more than a nylon fabric wall to hide behind when I want to get away….I can already feel my chest constricting.
Heh, i dunno. I don't know i'm doing anything truth be told it's just natural. And because of that naturalness, it's not so much that non-fiction is a source of inspiration (although it is i agree on occasion), it's just that for whatever reason the INFP is already creating these worlds from a very young age. The inspiration comes from within - and that's the cheesiest thing i'll probably say all day - but it does contain a kernel of truth. I have a bit of TJ envy too you know, which is another reason why i'm trying to plug that gap by digesting lots and lots of non-fictional information.
