1. I can see how you meant this to be funny. Obviously we took it seriously (but not personally, note: not as an affront), and, ironically, still are.
2. We would not rather stay alone. I think you're hyperbowling here. We many of us (ie. me, who's like 45%E 55%I) are quite social, but it's the matter of giving our hearts out that we're much more protective of. Here you also have to take into consideration our powerful intuitive function. While I am generally not inclined to sharing my heart with people (I try to be open about my life) if I meet someone and 'feel' that they are good and trustworthy I will choose to trust them with much and I'll do it relatively quickly.
3. we think people won't 'get' us or can't 'handle' us because usually life experience has taught us such.
4. lol, if your birds were infj and they did not know why you were baiting them, only that you 'were' baiting them, than no I don't think they would eat your bird food. The idea of infj birds definitely has me giggling though.
5. Of course I want to be more balanced. Constant improvement is my ultimate goal in every situation. This may not be true of others but I've seen enough people stagnate or unwilling to change to be properly afraid of being that way.
6. That's interesting, but all this while I wonder what you mean by "intense". Could you define it?
7. That's interesting. I am often in trouble for not having light conversations but I'm not entirely against talking about things that go nowhere simply to get the emotional load off my chest (ie. work difficulties), this may be something to take into consideration. For women not everything needs a solution (and that's not just for infjs).
8. Lol, I either tend to fall half way in love with them before I realize they're just being themselves or I find them terribly annoying.
9. I don't think anyone thought of it as picking a fight.
10. I do agree that feeling connected is great, but if that connection turns out to be false infjs aren't ones to go "oh, that was a good experience." And, don't diss our mistrust, because when we do choose to trust someone, esp when it proves to be well placed we are undyingly loyal. And most of us can talk on the phone. As for that last statement...ouch.
