    They are easier to keep apart when they are younger, but once they start to develop Fi and Ti, it can become significantly harder. You can catch them when they revert back to their proto state when they're angry/vulnerable/having a really bad day and are reacting against Fi and Ti. Perturbed (on the inside) coldhearted bitch/ass vs. raging (on the inside) emo martyr.

    Not to overgeneralize, but if they major in science, INFJs more likely major in biology, whereas you'd find the INTJs majoring in physics, chemistry, or math.

And the rest was about worrying what those around me thought, felt, saw, and trying to keep everyone happy, I was a notorious people pleaser as a kid. I liked the feeling of making my family or coaches proud of my ability and what they taught me.

    For the 1st time in my life, this close to 30, I feel like I am starting all over again trying to figure out who I am. Every day is long and drawn out, questioning constantly, judging myself for actions I haven't committed but thought of committing... it never ends. And I dont just follow thoughts a few clicks into the "plausibility" meter, I go like 20 years forward trying to see how what I would do would effect others and what it could mean and do... this stuff is going through my head non stop all the time.

    I smoke a lot of bud to lay my head out though...
    Aha... so that's what I need to do to calm the inner turmoil.
    Developing your Se can be helpful, too, because it gets you out of your head and focused on the real, external world. Painting really helps me with this... it's pretty much the only time when the turmoil raging in my brain shuts up, thus allowing me to feel peaceful and whole.
