Here’s my take on whether or not our type code can change. I think it bends and becomes more flexible over time in response to life experience. Let’s face it — our priorities are dramatically altered as we age, important people in our life come and go, we make choices to focus on different life goals and follow new paths. Tragedy, loss, death, good fortune; all these can alter our behavior patterns. But I believe our basic type remains as an underlying influence and the signs are evident as the fabric of who we are and how we are wired still controls our thoughts and actions regardless of how differently our perception of self-image may be changed. We must remember that we can never see ourselves as others do, and that independent interpretation can lead to a lot of false assumptions !
