    I've read the description of an INFJ and some of it I would agree with. I do get involved with suggesting things to other people such as career paths and how to get where I think they should be in life. hehe I like to encourage people to do their best. I love to see deserving people succeed!

    Things seem to turn darker for me when people ignore my suggestions and keep crapping their way though life. I have to keep reminding myself that I will be happier if I just mind my own business.

    I prefer not to have many friends because it is easier that way. I seem to have high expectations and the only person who can live up to them is my INTJ Husband. I don't choose to be the way that I am and if I could lighten up a little I would!

I mean, I don't come right out with my dislike of someone, but my behavior towards them makes it pretty darn obvious I think.

    I am pretty straightforward when I'm comfortable, and it typically doesn't take me long to get comfortable. I think I've got a lot of that "I am woman, hear me roar" sass to my personality, although to any stranger I come across I am polite and relatively softspoken. But if you spend longer than 10 minutes with me you'll find out pretty fast that I'm not so vanilla.

    I have unusually strong, liberal opinions, which I have learned to keep to myself in my conservative, hell fire and brimstone community. But if I feel you can handle how passionately I discuss certain topics, I'll go for it with no hesitation.

    NFs, what do you think? Particularly you introverts like me?

    I am definitely not the sugar coated type. And the descriptions of INFPs really get to me too sometimes. Personally, I think it bothers me because it makes us sound incredibly weak/small when we are obviously strong in a lot of ways. On another side of this, I just can't relate to much of this type (I'm thinking 58% of these descriptions fit me).

    I really do like helping...only when I'm not really doing anything myself. Other than that, please get away from me. There are times when I need to check myself and step back in a situation. I don't like feeling cornered, that's usually when I lash out. And if I don't like someone right away, they know it. There's no emotion on my face, my monotone voice kicks in, and to them I look like I"m ready to bail or punch someone. I've been called edgy.

    I'm very straightforward most of the time. And I'm softspoken too and I hate it. I literally do voice projection exercises to correct this.

    I think my area is mostly conservative, I honestly don't know or care to know. I'm not into politics at all. I don't care what people do, just get out of my way. I may sound kind of selfish, but anyone who truly knows me knows that I not in any way.

    my opinions/ideals are quite strong and if asked about a certain moral subject (or any subject for that matter) i will debate whatever my point is to the end. if i find i am wrong i will openly admit it. debates should be progressive in thoughts and ideas. there is no point in debating if it is intellectually destructive to either parties.
    "Honest differences are often a healthy sign of progress. "

    "You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty."
