    I'm not like him, but I come off kind of too informal. Or so I think. And really surprised if they hired me. I then turn into something good later. "Wow, I'm impressed. I didn't expect this from you." Not knowing that I channeled that energy because I thought they were kind of cute. Or at least, I thought someone was. That, or I started believing in something. But interviews are always the hard part.

    I vacillate between aloof & too intense, with a dash of tongue-tied and deer in the headlights. I also turn into something good later, so that I often become a valued employee - but the job interview...ehhhh....
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Yeah unfortunately people like you slip between the cracks, as employers have a limited amount of time. They come up with a metric that works in most cases because to use a better metric just takes too much labor.

    Trust my Ni implicitly, although I also factor in the other stuff to balance it out.

    You have a sense about the high-scorer, though, that he's bad news, and that the "so-so" one will work out well.
    You can't point to anything that's led you to this conclusion, you can't justify your belief, but you have this sense just the same."


    1. Do you trust this unjustifiable idea?
    2. Which one would you hire?
    3. How certain are you of your decision?

    My answers:
    1. Yes
    2. The one I sensed would work out.
    3. 100%
    Yup. Same Answers.

    I get the feeling that most INFJs feel this way.
