Personalities are NOT permanent

I don't believe in the "personality" quizzes or exams. I believe you CHOOSE your personality. You can CHOOSE to stay quiet, and keep going about your life... Or you can CHOOSE to speak up and stand for something. The thing about it is... It is NOT EASY. I have a coworker who listen to a variety of music/videos in our break room, and he doesn't use headphones. A lot of it makes me very uncomfortable. I know there's a way to politely ask him to wear headphones, even if he doesn't listen and ignores me. But I am also very timid and afraid that if I say ANYTHING, it's gonna blow up in my face and I'm going to be the one to blame for making a scene. I don't want to be timid. I want to be courageous enough to make a stand and say, "Hey, could you please wear headphones when you use your phone?" But it. Is. HARD. But I know it is also POSSIBLE. Don't let your dreams be dreams. Don't let a personality quiz determine who you are and who you should be. YOU make that choice. YOU decide who and what you want to be. Thank you for coming to my TED talk.

If I take my example, I hate my inability to focus on my responsibilities and this tendency to always want to understand more things or to explore patterns. I have been trying to change this for 20 years now… it’s impossible… it’s just how my brain works, it’s not just a choice…

I get that . And i dont mean to be disrespectful but just as yiu werent able to change that Others with less or more drastic issues have been able to change I just fear that most people atrive to identify themselves often leading to them limiting themselves in the process to that identification. I am an not an extrovert yet i am well socialised and many introverts wouldnt even attempt to socialize due to thier identity

You are a creature of habit, as all people are. But habits are learned. Just as old habits were learned, so can new habits be learned. Just because it's taken you 20 years doesn't make it impossible. Perhapse you have not been willing to go to the extent necessary to achieve the change you claim to want. I am not saying that is the case, only that it's a possibility. We all weigh our options against the likely outcomes that we can perceive. Gaining perspective can often open our eyes to new options and thus change our approach.

Well you are lead Te with Fi as a demon… so you are basically pushing your own feelings down in order to grow the ladder and achieve your goals… you are born with that… that is not your issue. Your issue is linked to your low Fi so our issues are very different. I am not surprised at all that you are capable of whipping yourself into business mode (that’s your dominant quality as ENTJ). It’s as if I was coming to an ISTJ and told him: com’on! Thinking creatively is so easy man… it’s because you are not even trying… forgetting that it’s easy for me because I am born for that

I wasn’t born with J, J came from my parents both being heavy J and passing that down via my childhood. I also suppose being one to believe one can do anything is an ENTJ thing

I agree with you. I actually have a similar problem, but to be honest it is more in compessing then just asking someone to use headphones, it is really any social situation. Speaking to anyone new. Or even speaking my mind to some of my friends. I try and actively avoid confrontation. Although I would rather speak up.

They are indeed quite accurate, the test I took describes how I am at the time I took the test. However rewind time and I would have answered the test differently, fast forward and I may change my answers as well. They are accurate for a current measure, I do agree they do not define us indefinitely. Change is one thing that never changes. Humans and everything about us are in this cycle as well.

I don't think you can choose a personality, it is your upbringing and your family and peers that influence your decision. If personalities can be chosen, then there will be less deaths and stuff

Personality is essentially a collection of the average choices you make on a daily basis. So you're not wrong but neither is the idea of a pretty constant personality with small deviations across time. We all tend to make similar behavioral decisions over a long time, which we call our personalities. Outliers like choosing to do something different one day doesn't mean that person's personality has changed. If you've ever had someone act out of character for a day or two you wouldn't consider thier personality to have changed.

Yes and no, I agree you can change but it isn’t poof like magic. I’ve probably tuned down J and upped E as I have gotten older.
