Hmm, had a short lovely dream involving my beau and I in a wonderful futuristic world where nature still thrived...
Why did it have to end so soon?

I can't stop thinking about where I'll be in 5 years. I'm loathing the idea of working a boring, tedious 9-5 job doing something I couldn't careless about. I do dream what will happen if I applied myself though, maybe I'll be able to do something I want to do, working hours that i choose to work in my own comfort. But applying myself is harder said than done, I can't help but to enjoy novelty and procrastinating, putting me off what I could be doing for my own future. I don't know, maybe it's depression or simply something most people think off at one point although this is day after day, year after year; I'm honestly scared of what will happen.

I've looked, or noticed, that my social interactions are turning into a points game where you score points based on how close to the desired outcome you managed to get. Whether that's people pleasing, making them laugh, or making them angry.
And it seems to hollow out all my relations. They aren't really there; it's just my bullshit and the echoes from my head.
Damn do I hate it when someone gets a higher score than me, which is an odd emotion since it happens more often than not so there should be a familiarity to the loss. Especially at work, I'm always being tricked at work but it's a good reminder that I'm not really intelligent.

If you really want to mess up the other points-players, just stop playing. They won't know how to handle you without it. It can go a few different ways. The more extreme results are along the lines of being ostracized from the group (because you don't play their game), or people being amazed that you're a reasonable human being.
INTJs tend to really hate these kinds of social interactions, because we tend to believe that pointing out a real problem that needs solving should get the attention it deserves, instead of being ignored because you need some sort of political clout to actually do anything about it.An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.
A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.
