We're not always quick to accept change I think, and we adapt slow when confronting new scenarios, but once we learn how, we're able to do it much quicker. In this instance, I would say that the INFJ is a survivor of sorts. Very adaptable.

    Even when we're alone, depending on how we feel, what we're doing, and what is the focus of our minds at that particular point, there truly is no true self to us, in the sense that its many selves that make up the whole.
    So true. I often feel like I can only truly be myself when I am on my own. Around other people automatically the Fe kicks in, I adjust myself to them and sometimes find it hard to draw the line (so if I do it tends to be pretty abrupt). It's not like I am pretending to be someone I am not or like I am denying my own needs, it's just that the parts of my character that are necessary to relate to this person at that given moment come to the surface.

    The more I trust someone the more I will show them other parts of my personality. I think I would want to marry the person with whom I can truly be myself, where I don't feel like I have to push certain parts of my character to the back because they don't understand them.

    I am the same to some degree. Very conflict-avoidant. I can tell a stranger or an accquaintance to PLEASE stop doing something but the closer someone is to me (and the more F they are, Ts are easier to deal with) the more I shy away from confronting them.

    However I have also realised that there is a good side to that. You always meet a person twice in your life (as we say in German) and sometimes it is helpful if you haven't pissed them off in the past (by having a fight with them) but they instead remember you as a peaceful and nice person. If you are someone who strives for harmony you will have less (relationship) bridges to mend.

    I just look for a quiet/unobtrusive person, "NF-like" verbal behavior, and "THE GAZE"

    Also, to successfully and consistanly spot INFJs, you should ignore EVERY post every INFJ has said about noticing them in this thread. Their information will just confuse you when you're scanning for them in the environment.

    Yes i'm serious here, ignore them lol. Compelx as they are, they're VERY easy to spot.

    I'm not quiet and sometimes not even unobtrusive... I'm usually very open and blunt. I'm interested in everyting and I'm over-opionated, that's my give away.

    And as mentioned...people always come for advice (and then I give it, then they ignore it and then they come for advice...repeat).

    -Often sort of intense, psychic eyes. Where INFP's look like fairies sometimes, INFJ's can look like angels.
    -Walk like a ghost, legs first (whatever that means to you, haha, I'll leave it at that).
    -Nose can be a bit upturned (not always, but very often).
    -Usually quite thin.
    -Usually dress... hard to explain. An element of reserve there, but subtle drama, too. They are very good at mixing black with other colors, but not a lot of color usually.
    -When they smile for pictures sometimes their eyes remain relaxed, which can make their smile look phony (even though it probably isn't fake).
    -They can seem "off-limits" from afar, but once you get to know them, you won't find a better or more caring listener.
    -Dry sense of humor, sometimes making fun of others without them being aware of it, subtle puns not uncommon.
    -They often have an air of sophistication, even if they don't know this about themselves.
    -They would be horrified if they accidentally farted in front of you.
    you forgot pretty.
    and the INFJ girls i know can put out the FIRE that burns inside me with a single look.

    i say, you can spot people who are similar to people you have known previously.
    know one infj (or anyone), and you will know two or three other ones of the same type. know two or three, and you will know nine or twelve. know twelve and you might know 21 ...

    there is no short cut, that could be taught by communication (like in this thread)
