- They think I lack confidence, when really I have enough to feel I don't have to prove myself and can sit back and let others have the limelight.
- They think I'm naive and believe that bad things won't happen, but really I've just experienced enough loss to know I'll be fine when it does.
- They think I don't understand that I've made a mistake because I don't get upset, but really I just have quick coping skills and have already figured out where I went wrong and what I can do to change it and forgiven myself, so there's no reason to be upset.
- Similarly, they think I don't understand what's going on in a stressful/scary situation when I stay calm, when really I've just processed the situation and can't find anything to actually be worried about, and know that even if there is, loosing my head won't help. (Ex, While I was driving one time, my car spun out. The passengers started freaking, afraid of getting in an accident, but I could see that there were no cars in front of, behind, or on the other side of the road in danger of collision and I'd be able to regain control of the car before we ran out of roadspace. We'd be fine. I'm sure my complete lack of fear or being phased made it look like I didn't care, or didn't realize how dangerous the situation was.)
So, yeah, in short.. people misunderstand me by thinking I don't process situations, when really I've processed them so quick, I'm over it already. (most of the time.) INFJ people!!! That means ESTP in a stressful situation! BAM. Taken care of.
