    Default INJs -- are you tired?

    I've noticed a trend among a few INJs, that they seem to be... tired. Not exactly physically, but more mentally and emotionally. I've heard that under too much stress, INJs are the type of people who will crawl into bed and try to stay there as long as possible.

    Maybe INTJ's low tolerances for inefficiency is because they tire easily. That INJs seem to have that 'closeminded certitude' because having to wade through possible answers that likely aren't right anyway would take so much energy. I don't know. What other types tire easily?

    It seems like a point... to see which types seem to have the most energy, and which have the least. I don't know if this is coherent... I'm so damn tired.

    I know that I have a low metabolism, and I waste my energy by worrying too much.

    I'm going to bed.

    I feel like I've been tired since I was eleven years old.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Hmm, can see the INJ pattern here so far...

    I can relate, too much introspection without solutions can be draining, I usually try to counter this by getting active socially and surrounding myself with those whose company I value, it helps me to stop thinking and improves my mood pretty quickly.

    If I didnt do this I could see myself hibernating.

    Yes, I can see what you are saying. I analyse things 24/7, which I can't voluntarily stop, and these can be tiring. Sometimes I think of something that I don't even know...it can be pretty annoying at times. When I feel I am tired, I go to book stores or libraries. Socialising drains my energy even more, as I have to socialise with "right" people. (Yeah, that sounds arrogant, but that's what I am.)

    I have felt this at many times in my life, but not quite as much now.

    I think that introverts in gereral seem to tire out more easily.

    Day to day social interaction such as interacting with co-workers, class mates, customers, friends, family, room mates, store clerks, etc., uses up more mental energy for introverts than extroverts.

    I also feel like I have to spend a lot of mental energy "translating" my thoughts into something other people would understand. The N stuff is too abstract for most people to get. And most people don't seem to get the T stuff either, too something, I'm not sure what. Too intellectual? Too technical? By most people, I mean most people in real life, there are lots of Ts here so I can find more people who understand.

    I think people with dominant Ni need to spend a fair amount of time day dreaming in order to rechange. At least it does for me. However, society often looks down on people who day dream too much and so there is pressure to cut down on it. People will sometimes say really negative things like "lost in her own fantasy world" and imply that it is not mentally healthy to spend "too much" time day dreaming. Giving into that pressure makes things worse.

    Roleplaying games, another good way to make Ni happy are looked down upon by many people as well. There is pressure to "grow up" and leave pretend games behind.

    For most of my life, I didn't have a good idea of how to relax and re-energize. That is because most people give advice for what works for them, but it doesn't necessarily work for people with other types. What an ESFP uses to help her feel renewed and renergized is not always the same as what helps an INTJ feel renewed and relaxed.

    Another issue for me, is that I have often felt pressure to act against type. Giving into that and acting against type uses up huge amounts of mental energy. Not giving in uses less energy, but having that pressure can wear me out to.

    Only if it involves social stuff or constantly being "on your game." It seems like after an hour of going out and being around people, I'm freakin' exhausted. Also, when people invade "my" environment, I get exhausted too.


    But I could stay up all night having a great conversation or playing a game that I'm really into and be fine.

    Strange... but yes. I guess I'm one of these people. Though it could also be because I'm having some kind of "depression"... as I see it myself, I have for little more than a year felt "cut off" from my source of energy (that's also for about as long as I've been INJ), and that from now on I have to get it elsewhere. I can't tolerate much stress and I have to be careful with myself.
