-Notorious for disappearing into one of my monastic quests for self-actualization which involves cutting off all ties to the outside world. (A common complaint from my close friends, "DON'T YOU EVER PICK UP YOUR PHONE?!" Can't they understand I'm busy trying to find myself? :rolli: )
-Conversely, I apparently am very nosy, according to some coworkers of mine. I'm not sure if that's type-related or not, but the accusation certainly does surprise me! (Then again, I think they only say it to push my buttons. I can be quite the chatterbox at work and worm my way into others' conversations without realizing I'm not supposed to. You see, there are certain social rules I need to adhere to...and I just don't. Awkward.)
-I have a knack for reading people, but while I am able to get the gyst of things, my interpretations of the thoughts behind their emotional demonstrations are probably way off base, due to my subjective spin on everything. That gets annoying fast.
-I constantly doubt my own abilities. bah.
There's so much more, but I figure those are my biggest challenges at present, so there you go. hehe.
Wow I so hear you on that. Also for INFP (at least myself):
Being unable to say no to someone in need. >.> I used to give just about anything that I had up to whoever wanted it, no joke. Now... I'm at least getting better at the whole "No" deal. Still need to practice though.
Not flipping out so much when someone uses an angry tone with me. I do not like it. Even if I can act cool during the situation, usually afterwards I start to cry or feel upset.
I have no idea who I am. All I can say is let's rock hard.
ISTJ: Spontaneity, tolerating others who are late, tolerating loud noises, tolerating messes. I'm sure I'm not the only ISTJ who doesn't like children (noise, messiness, and unpredictability in one little ragamuffin). I also don't like animals.
But the hardest thing is tolerating these things because I want to be polite. I don't want to be disliked. =( So I just complain in my head.
*sigh* Turning off our psychosensitive radar. Emotions and intentions emit silent radio frequencies like invisible energy rings and we never miss a wave because our Ni is such advanced technology that we are ill-equipped to master our response/absorption rate and it inundates us over and over and over and over...
(Fun with metaphors!) Imagine having a 22nd century space probe transmitting emotional data to a 20th century emotional receptor: overwhelming.
"There is no god; there is only us. Savage and fragile."
