7 Type E Personality Fears & Dislikes You Must Know About

Wondering what are the type E personality fears & dislikes? Do you have a type E professor, boss, or loved one? Wanna avoid angering or disappointing them?

You’re a dedicated person, aren’t you? After all, not everyone comes this far to know a person better. And I’m glad to say that my think-piece prepared all the things you need to keep in mind.

So, let’s quickly try to get to know them better here…

Type E Personality Fears & Dislikes

Like everyone else, people with type E personalities might also be a little vulnerable at times. They might be worried about everyone’s prosperity, but they can also lose their temper.

It might be astonishing to know that these people also get provoked. So, if you’re wondering what triggers them, here are some…

1. Things they lose passion for

Folks with E personality types lose interest in things as fast as they gain it. When they usually start working on something, they don’t always have a set goal or endpoint in mind.

Moreover, they don’t even consider whether they can complete the task, don’t create a plan to complete it, or consider the setbacks they might face on the new journey.

They begin most of their tasks just because they feel passionate about it… but there’s usually no proper reason behind this passion. So, it’s hard to say when this passion will drive them.

Since they’re unprepared for the difficulties on the way, they usually lose interest quite soon. Once that happens, they abandon those projects within a blink of an eye. They dislike anything they lose interest in and passion for.

2. People not appreciating their ideas

E-types aren’t just creative, their creativity is always striking and unique from the rest. Their creativity isn’t the most expected. Sometimes, their creativity might even be unrealistic or a bit beyond the scope of the situation. However, their ideas can help others out of grave troubles.

People value their ideas only when they are out of ideas or when none of the proposed ideas work. They use a type E person’s ideas as the last resort. They never get accepted on the first go.

So, it’s obvious they dislike it when others don’t appreciate their plans. People might even crack jokes about their unrealistic or far-fetched ideas.

They want to help others out with everything they can but they hate it when their proposals get accepted in the end. It’s as if their ideas are always good for nothing… which takes a huge toll on their confidence.

3. People’s negative opinions

Type E people aren’t the brightest of the lot. They might chase bad habits or follow routes full of troubles because they either want to challenge themselves or aren’t aware of the roadblocks on the way.

While watching from the sidelines, you might notice the troubles ahead and advise them only to help them. They might not take your negative feedback well. Instead, they might act stubbornly in such situations.

They might push harder towards their goal whether they’re good or bad. Negative opinions trigger their willfulness and they act defensive about their dreams. They’ll protest to make you understand their standpoint and won’t even listen to your thoughts properly.  

4. Lack of guidance

Individuals with type E personality styles can’t fare well without proper guidance. They don’t have the best skills to judge the aftereffects of their choices and decisions.

They do things on a whim and get passionate about things randomly. They might fail in their life repeatedly if they’re not aware of their chosen directions and what it brings to them later on.

However, type Es are insane about success and progress. They want to win in their life and are ready to do everything to make their dream to succeed and progress come true.

But, without guidance, they might fail repeatedly and it might take a huge toll on their confidence. Though they have high spirits, who doesn’t start questioning themselves when the situation always takes negative turns?

So, without a mentor or guidance in life, they might realize how lost they are and fear failing in every step of life.

5. Forcibly made to end tasks

As mentioned in the last point, E-types can perform brilliantly in their life if they’re guided about rights and wrongs. They can lead a prosperous life full of ceaseless success and passion. However, type Es dislike being controlled too much or forced into finishing abandoned tasks.

They undertake tasks on a whim due to sudden passion and randomly leave their tasks in the middle when they lose interest. They lose the zeal to even look back at those tasks. They don’t even feel bad about the energy, time, and resources they used for the abandoned tasks.

However, if they have a mentor or guide, they won’t let them do as they please. They’ll be forced to complete the tasks they undertook.

Especially in their professional and academic life, they’ll have no other option. This might be one of the reasons why they won’t like to be guided by others.

6. People that can’t match their energy

E-types are extremely energetic and have high spirits. They might seem outgoing and do any work with great vigor. Whether it’s work in their office or their household chores, they have incessant energy.

If you meet a person with E personality characteristics for the first time, you might feel as motivated to match your energy with them. However, at one point, they might seem superhuman to you.

They truly have endless energy and will to do things… they’re unnaturally passionate about their duties despite how big or small it is. Though inspiring initially, it can genuinely wear you out.

Unless you’re an E-type as well, you might get tired real soon and start avoiding any E-types around you. It can take a real toll on your physical and mental health because you’re not used to being as energetic in your daily life.

7. Letting go of things they’re passionate about

When people with type E personality traits get passionate about something, they find it difficult to let go of it. You might say that why even make them give up on their passions?

Well, E-types aren’t good at judging the pros and cons of the things they get passionate about. They chase bad things as intensely as they seek good ones.

They also want to challenge themselves every moment of their life. But they might fail to understand the grave consequences of risky endeavors. They’re short-sighted when it comes to decisions.

But when people around an E-type person notice the concerning situation, they try to snap the E-type back to their senses.

However, this task is next to impossible because they just can’t get over their desire to chase these goals.

They dwell on the chances of it bringing some benefits that nobody ever thought of and might work on their plans once when nobody notices.

A word from ThePleasantPersonality

While dealing with E-types, keep in mind that you don’t trigger them with anything mentioned here. And even if the situation goes out of hand and then they get triggered, learn to deal with them.

Just make sure that you don’t trigger them knowingly. If they suspect that you use their fears and dislikes against them knowingly, they won’t trust you or keep you around them.

This isn’t just a type E trait special… but anyone would react the same. So, don’t try to use these against them… I know you won’t!

So, to help your E-type buddy cope with their fears and grow, believe in them, and be candid and straightforward.
