    I agree the desire to communicate the inner world is there. I think I have just developed a very particular preference for expression. Most often in writing, (usually just for myself), often through what I do for work at those times I get to please myself, rarely in speaking with someone. Failing that I will keep it to myself.
    I am curious. Are you ever bored by analyzing yourself and wish for someone to find it out on his own or are you just fine with that being not true ?

    I have to share this because it's so cute.

    When my mom (INFJ) had my older brother (INTJ) she said she'd hold him for hours and say things like "My boy," really softly, with him responding (as early as a 1 year old) "My mama." One day, he turned the tables on her and started saying, "My boy," with her instinctively answering, "My mama," -- and they did it that way from then on. Pretty interesting to me. So sweet though. Both just quietly loving.

    Lol, nope. I love turning things over in my mind, I'm fascinated with my own conclusions. I sometimes feel that sharing certain ideas before they are fully formed dilutes them.

    I like discussing certain things with someone like-minded or penetrating though.

    OK. I cant totally make my head around the fact that one on his own could possibly understand himself. For me it feels like founding a party and bring germany to war, if you have come to a decision about how things are totally by yourself.

    But I know it first hand to some degree that INFJ have brilliant insights. I am just still wondering what the world needs me for then

    INFJ are better dressers. They also use more emotes.

    Me too. In my head, boredom never exists.

    This is probably the most interesting thing about INFJ's. They are like little jeweled eggs with clockwork and magic inside. INTJ is more like clockwork and more clockwork with sealed little doors that no one ever enters. For me, my mind is like a map from the 15th century. Many areas well known, but a large part is demarcated with "here be dragons".

    Like a Faberge egg that functions as the gateway to another dimension.
