    You think I'm an ENFP?

    I find that the INFJ way of hitting on you is by trying to analyze you...

    No, this is one is actually ENFP, or so she claims.

    That and strike up a discussion about an eccentric topic.

    I don't really see this as a weakness. You can still have few friends with a large social network of acquiescences. I think we expect much more from our friends then most people.

    I am sure I have no idea what your talking about... I find that living in a fantasy world is about the only way to take on problems (and then finish them) that other people won't take on because they are too difficult. This is a strength.

    I rather like talking on the phone, as long as I'm not talking to someone who is really depressed, because then I tend to feel depressed.

    Well I do think that INFJ's tend to be more vulnerable to unhealthy states of mind then most people because of the way that they think. Most people don't have ideals, so they can't be disappointed when the world doesn't live up to them. But ideals also can be the most powerful motivators in the world if you can deal with the fact that most of the world hates you for having them
    Wow... an INFJ that doesn't sound ANYTHING like an INFJ. You're either lying about your type (since you only have one post) OR you're an extremely highly developed INFJ, which is a little odd because you'd at least be able to relate to how you used to be BEFORE you reached 'god status'

    INFJs are so introspective that it often leads to a high level of self-awareness. I'm REALLY self-aware, so much so that I feel naked/vulnerable/easy to read. So when we discover an 'uh-oh'. I think it's really easy to rationalize it by saying, 'That's just the way I am, I don't really need to address this".
    My father is an INFJ, and I think he's self aware to the point of finding it crippling. Well, more like this sequence of events - he is unaware of a personal behavior, he has it pointed out to him, he suddenly looks as if he's had his pants pulled down in the village square, he retreats and reconnoiters. No matter how the news is presented to him, he seems to have a great deal of embarrassment that he "didn't see it", regardless of how gently it's put to him. My NFJ twin sister also tells me she finds the "cluelessness" ( as she puts it ) very embarrassing.

    Well I'm quite glad that you think I'm a god, it really feels good

    Well, I used to go for the throat all of the time. Learning not to do that took some time.
    I've always viewed having a few close friends as acceptable as long while recognizing the value of networking (I'm one of the few INFJ's who tests as 8w7, the "CEO" type, and actually desires to be one).
    I do like talking on the phone more then texting because you lose so much when you don't have the other person's voice to listen to. I prefer in face conversations more. This has always been the case.
    And I've always been an idealist. Just the way it is.
    If you still don't believe that I'm an INFJ, there are plenty of people on the board I used to post on that will vouch for my INFJness.

    How did you get this from the little I wrote? I didn't present anywhere enough information for you to figure me out. Projecting much?

    How did you learn not to do that?

    I decided to keep an eye on what I was doing when I went for the throat then tried to detect in real time when I was doing it, and when I noticed it I tried to calm myself down, take a step back, and think about what the other person was feeling.

    Edit: For instance, if I feel my fight or flight responses kicking in while discussing something, I take that as a sign to step back and think about what I'm saying more.

    Interesting. I know it's weird to say say this, but I tend to think out loud (as an extraverted function). Not always so easy to put the pause on in a conversation...

    I also tend to think out loud if I have someone I trust to sit on the end of the conversation
