Yes. I had just finished playing volleyball for several years and needed something to do physically and to fill all of my unused time. I was 17. I signed up for personal training at a local gym and found out that the personal trainer did kick-boxing. He incorporated it into his training time. He then suggested I go to the dojo he went to, which was just a church gym. There, I learned some jiu-jitsu and karate. I learned little fun things, like how to make someone hurt very badly without much effort. Also, it really opened my eyes to the flow of hand-to-hand combat. It is amazing to me. The flow. You want to continue the flow, not stop it. Example: If someone is coming at you, let them. Do not stop their force, continue it. If they try to punch you, let them continue their energy, help their energy flow continuously (while dodging) and you will end up with the upper hand (pun intended). (If you think about it, this is a philosophy to live by as well. If someone wants to attack you, let them. It’s better to deflect then to attack. Let someone tire themselves out. Be still.) Also, things like - hitting bone with bone hurts you as much as it hurts them, so tactics, all tactics. Target something soft with something hard. Eyes are sensitive. Crotches are sensitive for both females and males. There’s a spot at the shin…ouch. Fighting is as much mental as it is physical. Discipline. What was fun for me with jiu-jitsu was the goal of making someone “tap out” or resisting the urge to “tap out” yourself. Figuring out what kind of pretzel you were in and getting yourself out of it. It was intense. SO good. I miss it. But I’ve gotten a little more feminine over the years to just go back to wrapping my hands and breaking my pretty nails. Also, I have fake tits to protect now…lol! Didn’t have them back then. But damn was it a good workout. Shit, I’m talking myself into it again…lol.
Hmm…Yeah. I wonder what I would do if I found out I was cheated on. I think this reaction depends a lot on age and maturity. When I was younger, yeah, I could see blowing someone’s house up. But now, I just threaten. It’s a much better feeling. Like, I feel like my neighbor is a little too friendly with my husband. So like any good wife, I just threaten him: “I will make you help me kill her.” “Please don’t kill me.” “I would never kill you, just maim you.”
Also, I say things like: “Here is your food, extra poison.” I know how to keep things spicy in a relationship.
It’s a much better way to release that energy. I get to threaten which is relieving and then he feels loved. It’s a win, win. I think more relationships should include some sort of threatening factor. Hahaha.
Yeah, see this is all unhealthy. Rage is not good. It’s a blind disposition. Tyson was so used to using and funneling that rage, and without it, he didn’t know how to fight a person. It sounds like he took fights too personally. Mind-fucking someone means you have to get inside their mind. Understand them. Understand what makes them tic. And this is where I can see a difference in ENFJ fighters and INFJ fighters. INFJs might be good when they are young, because of the rage. Once the rage is gone, they are angels and cannot fight. ENFJs MAY be able to put the deep connection to someone’s mind aside to win. Do what it takes. But there are many factors here. It’s boxing. Both parties know what they are getting themselves into.
I’m just gonna throw this out there. I think all INFJs go through a tough time in their lives. Extremely tough. More tough than any other type. When Blake says, they are angels and devils, consider that. Those are two very different extremes. Think about all the contrasts. It’s insane. So even if it’s just internal and not contributing to any outside factors, INFJs (I believe) are the most tortured, BUT they are the most beautiful (in my eyes) because a healthy one has gone through Hell and has made it to the top of the mountain.
