Pleasure to meet(?) you.
I was wondering if you could help me with a question. I recently bought and read "The sixteen Personality Types" by Linda V. Berens and Dario Nardi and after reading the descriptions and asking for my wife and friends input, the INFJ description seemed to be unanimously the right choice.
Now I am starting to wonder about that. Previously, I considered myself an INFP, and actually the first time I did one of those online tests (I almost wish I had never found them!), I typed as an INTJ, which didn't really seem to fit the bill. However, I really identify with the INFJ description in the book, but the "organizing" aspect is kind of not as apparent as I imagine it would be in other INFJs.
What I mean is, I don't really "do" in the outside world as much as I think I "should" according to my type.
I do suffer from social anxiety, so I have a very clear "list" of things I can and cannot do, although I tend to include some things that are hard for me just so I don't completely sink into absolute "hermitude."
To sum up(a little late I guess), can INFJs seem less determined, structured, organized on the outside due to something such as anxiety, which seriously puts a damper on my plans, or am I just another type, possibly?
Thanks ahead of time. I don't want to overload you with extra work or anything, but I really would appreciate any input you could give me.
