I was wondering if any ever experienced trying to 'step out and away' from their initial personality type?
The first time I took the MBTI test, I came off as an ENFJ, but I worked so hard to make myself an extrovert rather than an introvert. As an INFJ, I always thought myself strange in comparison to others. Perhaps my Enneagram 4 kicked in, but I always found myself depressed over the fact that I needed to 'recharge' and just get away from social situations because I didn't find it normal. In a way, getting to know my real personality type has made me understand myself better.
So, back to the question. Is this common to INFJ's? Perhaps because we're so few in 'real-life'? Or was that I phase I just went through?
