    Default Do you rule someone out of being an INXJ if they're quirky/funny/really weird?

    Do you rule someone out of being an INXJ if they're quirky/funny/really weird? I've seen one or two people do that, and I'm wondering if it's a general thing. I've always thought that INFJ's in particular are probably the one type most likely to be off-the wall weird in the way they carry and project themselves, but some may disagree with that.

    INTJ, probably.

    INFJ, probably not.

    Nope, three of the many INTJs I know are the strangest and most fun people I know, and if I spent enough time with the others I think I could bring it out of them.

    I only know one INFJ that is weird. We have conversations about Physics, Sociology and Teletubbies with minutes. Don't ask me how... She is very smart, but child like. I love her

    I know a lot of rather quirky INFJ females. ISFJ won't get quirky but INFJ can be very practical/controlled and other times pretty quirky, if they allow it.

    ...Teletubbies! They're so cute. Except that Tinky-Winky. That one's kind of...not so cute.

    I'm like this. At times I'll be very reserved and controlled, and at other times quirky and silly. It's really odd. People never know what to expect. It gives them the wrong impression if they meet me in either of the modes, because I'm only like that half of the time. And when I switch they look like: :confused:

    To the OP: Yes, I've noticed people do that. While there certainly are INxJs that are pretty bland, conservative, and humorless, there are plenty more that aren't.

    Yea I've seen you infjs do this, entering different "modes", the infj I know got a little too carried away and created an alternate personality for himself which he also named.....I was not impressed but I kind of tolerated it, for a little while at least, but he seems to have forgotten his alter ego already. Hopefully it was kind of a joke, I think he is sane for the most part.

    As for us intj's, I think we are stereotyped quite a bit, which is opposite of what you should be doing with the intj considering their high level of individuality, although less likely than an infj, if you catch us at the right time you will probably peg us as a different type.

    I think a lot of people I meet are thrown off by my weird quirkiness so lately I've been trying to keep a more reserved face when meeting them. Which in turn makes me come off as a blander person because I'm trying to seem normal. Not that normal has to be boring it's just not me. I can usually tell upon meeting someone whether they'll 'get' the weirdness or if it will cause them distress and adjust my behavior accordingly. If I misjudge and unleash the weirdo residing inside me to the wrong person it does not go well at all...But there was one time I was pleasantly surprised.

    No not really. I don't understand how this is efficient in typing someone, by measuring such a superficial quality as this.
