> ***Well really counterphobic 6's are only confrontational at certain levels on the continum. Probably an ESTP cf 6 is more vicerally prominant than me an INTJ who is more in word than deed perhaps.

>>I knew 4,6,8 are the emotionally reactive types. But even so, the 4 tendency is to withdraw and sulk, then maybe to try to talk to the offending parties in an empathetic way. Which I think would amount to nothing here (at work), they would see me as even weaker.

In my personal life, I go with my "natural" 4 responses, I withdraw and then if I want to change the situation I'll talk about my feelings with the person. But that doesn't work here. "They" (the powerful with the money) chew up and spit out the 4/INFP types.

What I meant by accessing my 3 wing was that 3s are directly confrontational and want to get right down to business and work out the problem, feelings aside.

It's interesting that you, P, test as INTJ, I associate that more with type 1s than 6s. But I know, 6s have the widest range of MBTI results. My significant other is an ESTP and an 8/9. Yep, he's verbally forward and blunt with people, very sarcastic if he doesn't get what he wants. Many of his friends are counterphobic 6s, and similar to him but more high-strung and conventional (that's how I know they are not 8s). I guess birds of a feather flock together.
